Deutschland in July

And it was very hot.
Our first meal in Berlin.

 Yaam - a little taste of Afrikaan in Berlin.

Inside Köln Dom.

Potsdam. It's an ice house.

Sans Souci.


The broken but still stand tall Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.

What Hamburg is famous for.

Sylt houses are the cutest. 

Cutest restaurant in Sylt. I fell in love with Sylt tatched roofs.

Strandpromenade Westerland. What a beautiful day that day.

Wedding dinner - why we were in Sylt.

Bangkok Getaway

Last weekend saw me visiting Bangkok with a group of girls as a girls get-together for a GF who is getting married in July & September (yes 2 weddings in different continent).
This was my second time visiting - the first was being a 2-day business trip in April, 2010 - in the midst of 2010 Thai Political Protest so go figure, I didn't have the chance to explore the city.

Under the Shade of the Banyan Tree

We spent the CNY long weekend at exploring Kathmandu. What's unfortunate was that both of us got sick - well, BF has been sick with flu and fever since the week before whilst I got sicker and sicker with the same thing plus a really nasty sore throat in Kathmandu. Having said that, although I would love to explore the city more, I couldn't wait to go home at the same time. I'm home for two days now recuperating.
Kathmandu is a beautiful city in essence, it is just being neglected. It is dirty and dusty, but surprisingly not smelly. Driving around Kathmandu, you need a totally different level of skill set. The roads are so narrow and infested with motorbikes and bicycles. And Nepali drivers LOVE to honk. I had to refrained myself from flipping my middle finger at the drivers.
We spent half a say mountain biking to Mudkhu - our ass hurt so much after. My right knee was swollen in the evening - that scared me for I worried I might not able to walk around exploring but luckily me knee healed the next day. I massaged it  bit with Burt's Bees Res-Q ointment.
Let the pictures show you what's Kathmandu.

 The must-have shot of the sadhus.

ps - Coco is back.

Something Awesome This Way Comes

Quite an accelerating year this year, it is already February. It is also a month a couple of new things. BF's sister will be here working part time for him for the next few months. Coco will be coming back next Monday and of course, Odyssey end of this month. We will be travelling to Kathmandu during the CNY. Oh yes. 
Having said that, I might not have much spare time to update this blog. So, I wish you a happy lunar new year and another great year ahead.

Hello 2015

This may have come too late but I hope you welcomed 2015 the way you wanted to. We welcomed ours in Krabi with a mix of new friends and old friends. It was an enjoyable 6-day-vacation to usher the new year. We hope 2015 is another great one for you.

Our year started 'early' - we have made a couple of decisions for the year. One of the biggest decisions is that we are getting our golden retriever puppy and her name is Odyssey! We will be bring this little one home end of February when she's 2 months old. Coco also will be back with us by then. I hope they got along well.
