A Vietnamese Restaurant Placed Stuffed Pandas To Keep Their Diners Company

When the world tries to heal by reopening public places and restaurants, there are still some concerns about how to keep social distancing between people. 

The Maison Saigon, a Vietnamese restaurant in Thailand, Found the perfect solution to kill the pandemic blues for those who can't bear to eat alone.  

When the restaurant initially reopened, the owner had placed one chair at each table. But then it felt too empty so he placed stuffed panda bears at its tables to promote social distancing in a fun and less lonely atmosphere.

Now, stuffed panda bears can join you for dinner and hear about your day.

As you can probably imagine, the diners are thrilled. Sawit Chaiphuek told Reuters: "I enjoyed the unique company as I dined out for the first time in months. The doll makes me feel less lonely eating by myself".

At a temple, in Bangkok, Thailand, one cat decided to test a monk's patience when it crawled onto his lap during a five-hour-long prayer. The saffron-robed monk gently tried to push the cat away, but the cat had already chosen him. 

The cat kneaded the monks shoulder and blocked his view to his scripture book. Eventually, he gave in and decided to pet the cat. 

"I was trying to read the book. But I was more focused on the cat," said the 25-year-monk, who uses the monastic name Luang Pi Komkrit Taechachoto. 

Nophayong Sookphan, who took the video, said the cat jumped up on stage and onto the monks lap 15 minutes to midnight, and wouldn't leave until after the countdown to New Year's Day.

The video originally posted on public Facebook group called "Cats' Slaves" but was soon reposted and shared on various sites. It has since gained roughly around 300,000 views.

The Binturong is part bear, part cat, and all squee! Nah, just kidding, they're not bears nor cats, but are in fact closely related to civets.
