Tonshitlitis and Beyond

After an absence of almost, what, like 6 years, tonshitlitis came back this week. This time, it hit me quite hard that my nostrils are inflamed too. They hurt so much.
Past weeks were hectic no less. I learned to make kimchi, shikhye and naeng myun from BF's dad who visited us. Having said that, we played tourists again. Did the usual stuff - Batu Caves, KLCC, Old Palace. Oh this time, we went to Melaka too. Too bad, the battery of my phone died.
Anyway, let the pictures speak of the things that mattered.

Last weekend saw us hosting dinner for my colleagues. Feasted Korean dinner.

Coco didn't know how to play with dogs. Coco was confused with this friendly Pom when we went for lunch at the pet-friendly cafe.

Made my first mat kimchi, learned from BF's dad. Well, I actually observed and helped a bit. The other is kakktugi, radish kimchi.

The smaller plumeria in this picture, the Celadine seedling has left to Seoul.

Long Time No See

I've been occupied, lazy and all sorts that I actually scheduled the last few posts, and they were just pictures.
My interest has also shifted, I'm more active at my gardening blog. I post a post per week average. My interest has evolved; from flower arranging (expensive, actually! And flowers don't last long!) to gardening. I started with herbs and hydrangea, and then I fell in love with plumeria. And it just took off. My balcony is swamped by plumerias - about 18 potted and 5 being rooted. I have also expanded to local herbs/aromatics like green onion and ginger. I even have avocado!

Other than that, Coco has been staying with us since.... last month? She went for her first spa/grooming session which took half a day. Took her to the spa at 10am and she finished at 3pm.

 Sister's wired fox terrier puppy, Bailey visited us. I was gardening then.

 My favourite shot of the BF and Coco at a pet-friendly cafe where the brother of my colleague works as the head chef.
Coco checking out herself after coming home from the spa. I couldn't really accept how beverly hills she was. I definitely prefer scruffy dogs.

We are also preparing ourselves for a golden retriever puppy which we are planning to get end of this year. We have found a reputable breeder and she is expecting a litter end of this year.
