Is bottle water safe?

My wife almost finished packing all the stuff and luckily yesterday my wife brother in law came and shifts the heavy stuff. Today I will only shift the clothing and this notebook..hahaha.

A short one (before I continue packing), the next time when you open a bottle mineral, drink it carefully. Yesterday I was at deli france in the airport, I order my usual plain Baguette and a mineral water. After finishing the bread, I went for my normal “window” shopping and I brought along the still half full mineral water. As I was ogling at the latest digital camera and sipping my supposedly healthy and clean mineral water, I felt something at the bottom of my tongue.

I thought it could be the bread that got stuck somewhere in the mouth. I gulped another mouthful to gurgle it off and this time I felt something sharp, the first thing that came through my mind, is that the water got some kinda of broken glass. I quickly take the “thing” from my mouth and it’s a small particle, a bit like glass. Oh my gosh! I thought, did I swallow any? I pressed the thing harder. Ummm, a bit soft for glass, it looks like plastic but whatever is it, it should not be there. So next time, when you drink do it slowly and “feel” the water. My wife is babbling in thai, I guess it means back to packing…..oh my backache…

Oh no, just as I thot bottled water is the safest ... die, so now, no water is safe! Better train my stomach to be more resilient!

You know, everytime I am in Thailand, I've always wanted to try the roadside stalls. But the local people whom I am with will tell me that my stomach likely can't take it. Shall try at least once and see what happens, hehee.

Im glad your ok!!!! I hear bottle water has alot of bacteria anyway and its bad, not as bad as glass or plastic(Im connected to lettis blog :) the little redhead kid icon)

Lynne, I guess nothing is safe nowadays even the air we breathe. My stomach is quite sensitive but so far I have tried a lot of roadside stall in thailand but nothing happens.

Monica, thanks for dropping by. My wife has now start to drink soft drinks in glass bottle..... as it seems there are cases that the tin bottle is rusty, its only that we could not see it.
