This time round, it was fried pasta with button mushrooms cooked in Chinese style. Very tasty and delicious. Again, Siew Boon also provided the ever potent chilli. Really like fireball in the mouth.
I must ask her to get some for me.

The toilet reminded me of a kampong (village) toilet.
When I closed the door, I was weary that there could be creapy crawlies behind the wooden door which was a common sight in a kampong toilet Thank goodness, there was none.
The squatting toilet bowl was very clean indeed and that was really different from a toilet in the kampong, which in the seventies was just a bucket. The bucket would be emptied every morning.
Most of us are living in affluence now that a sight such as this is one of the past. We should be grateful that we are living in comfort everyday. What else could we complain about?
Let's give thanks to every little thing that has made our life such a wonderful one.
It is not too sweet but if you eat too many at a time, the creaminess can be overbearing.
At about $3.50, it is very worth it for more than 10 individually wraped chocolates.
I would say it goes well with a cuppa coffee.

A Thai friend brought us to this very nice restaurant called Coffee Bean by Dao. The ambience was excellent and the food was really good. I was so impressed with the cream pasta, see pic below, die die must try:
I've attached a link to their official website, just click on the title of this blog entry above.
You'll never regret, remember, die die must go eat, ok?
We were in Bangkok from 1 to 4 Apr 2010. It was a shopping and eating trip, and of course to pamper ourselves with the massages.
On our third day there, the red camp moved to the major shopping district at the Siam area rendering the major shopping malls at the Siam and Chit Lom area closed.
Luckily, unlike what is happening now, it was a peaceful protest. They parked their vehicles in the middle of the main road and sat there.
Although the protest had distrupted our shopping at Paragon and Central @ Chit Lom, nevertheless, we are thankful that it was not violent then.
Thank God for that.

Highly recommended. You can get it from Boots.
Why it is call Nude, I really don't know.
My ex-colleague left this on my table. It was a gift from Turkey.
They were fruits stuff with nuts. I love the one on the extreme left, It was walnut stuffed in fig. Yummy, love the nutty taste and the sweetness of the fig.
Thanks so much Maggie for remembering me.
Hey! Finally I had a chance to take SIA Business Class.
There was plenty of leg space, I couldn't even touch the seat infront with my legs fully stretched.
The food was good, infact delicious. They would serve the appetizer first followed with the main course. There was also a selection of bread that you could choose from.
I enjoyed the experience, it was definitely great to be well taken care of.

I realized, a pity after so many years, that along both sides of the road just outside my apartment are lined with these trees that bear pink flowers that from far look like Sakura. The flowers will fill the entire tree turning a major portion of the tree into Sakura pink. There are a few that bear white flowers.
These tree only bear flowers around the same time as Sakura and will only last for a short time. Now the whole road is painted pink by these trees.
It's a pity I haven't realized this in the past. I guess I must watch and appreciate the trees more.
Are you watching nature? Or just taking them for granted and like me, miss the beauty of nature.
