Jasmine infused syrup
Place sugar, water, and cloves in a large pot; bring to a gentle boil.
Add the pineapple pieces to the syrup, bring the mixture to a gentle boil once more, reduce the heat to a low simmer, and allow to cook, uncovered, for 5-8 minutes.
Turn off the heat and let the pineapple cool completely in the syrup. Do not cover the pot.
Once the mixture has cooled completely, take out the pineapple pieces and cloves. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh strainer.
Stir the jasmine flowers into the strained syrup and let the mixture infuse at room temperature for about 2-3 hours, then strain out and discard the flowers. If you don’t have jasmine flowers, simply add the jasmine extract to the syrup and you’re done.

Hand carved Soap Flowers
These beautiful images above are soap carvings. They are delicatetly carved by hand in Thailand.
This is an old art form in Thailand, slowly dying out.
I cam across a blog that give you more insights into this industry.
This dying art of making hand carved soap flowers originated in what was known as the little village in northern Thailand of Chiang Rai. The people from the village started carving these soaps as a hobby. Soon the true artist developed it into a successful business to support their families.
All the photos and the video is the work of gifted artist Patcharin Thanomworakul.
The container itself is a work of art. She does not make these but each one is handmade from mango trees, which are plentiful here in northern Thailand.
