The meaning of family is so fuzzy. Family will not do shit to each other like what I have received from mine. There is no meaning to kinship, no meaning to family, no meaning to love.

I wish Pneumothorax killed me back then.

8 months since I adopted the love of my life. When she just came, she was a indoor toilet-trained dog, so whenever we brought her out on walks, she would never pee or poo. Slowly over time, she learned to pee and poo in public, but always on the pavement. -_-

On Sunday (20 July), I brought her out for a walk and for the first time, I witnessed her pee on the grass! Not only that, she actually "horse kicked" the grass, in an attempt to cover up her business as how other dogs usually do! She walked a little more and peed again. I was wondering why she had so much pee that evening, but when she peed a third time, I realized that she was actually marking territory, another first!

This may be no biggie to people, but to me and Truffle, it is a milestone and a pleasant surprise to see her being a proper pooch for once. =P

I have so much love for this pooch, I don't know what would I do without her when the time comes that she would have to leave this world and me. ='(

Krabi - 11th Jan 2014

Woke up bright and early for breakfast at a little cafe nearby, before a good massage at a cosy massage parlour opened by a fellow Singaporean.

The Singaporean owner of the massage parlour had a beautiful dog on the premise, and it was such a friendly and calm little thing!

For his birthday celebration, I wanted to bring K to this winery place which was near our hotel that had a yummy sounding menu and a beautiful place to chill and relax with a glass of wine after dinner, but he managed to find another place that had extremely good reviews. So we booked ourselves for dinner for that evening and spent the whole afternoon walking around along the streets. We returned to the hotel with funky flavoured Pringles which cannot be found in Singapore.

We then prepared for K's birthday dinner at this place called The Hilltop. I later learnt from K that this place was set up by a Singaporean guy with his Thai friend cum business partner. During dinner, we met the Singaporean owner personally, and chatted with him for awhile. He was a young chap, and rather charming, but what was commendable was his service, as he kept going from table to table to ask diners if the food was alright, if they were enjoying themselves, etc etc. As the boss of the place, it was really humbling to see that he personally waited on the tables and cleared dishes too!

So anyway, a transport was sent to pick us up right from the doorstep of our hotel, and when we got to the place... OMG, so breathtaking! I shall just roll the pictures to let them speak for themselves. To add on, the food was fantastic and super huge in portions! Even after the food came, I kept running to and fro to snap pictures of the view as the sun was setting and every few minutes looked very different from the last. And what sealed the sweet deal at the end was that transport was provided to send us back to our hotel too!

The above picture was taken in front of an exclusively private table, away from the rest, on the edge of the hill, perched over a majestic view. I guess this seat has to be booked way in advance! A Caucasion couple had their private and romantic dinner at that table, and they even had a personal waiter who attended to them the whole time.

Okay, so after spamming pictures on the awesome view at The Hilltop, let's get down to the equally awesome food!

Duck The Hilltop Style

The duck was freaking awesome! Much raved by many online, and we tried it for ourselves and were impressed! Sweet and salty fusion, with very tender duck meat which was well-marinated. And for a starter dish, the portion was good being a main dish even on its own!

Pla Tod Rad Prik - Deep-fried Sea Bass with Sweet Chilli Sauce

When this dish came, I was shocked at the size of the fish! I was telling K, "Die, sure cannot finish everything!", and I was right.

Stir-Fried Chinese Broccoli with Prawns

Tom Yam Goong

This was a small portion, which allowed us to have nearly 3 bowls each, cannot imagine what the large portion will look like! Seriously, food portions were ridiculously huge, not a bad thing for large eaters!

 photo 20140111_181000_zpsd696d1a6.jpg

For the quality and quantity of the food, coupled with such awesome view, the price of about SGD 70 for the meal was super cheap!

The Singaporean owner was so sweet to present K with a surprise birthday ice cream. I suspect that the chocolate ice cream was made by them as the chocolate was thick and rich, and very smooth!

Happy Birthday, Love!

Krabi - 9th & 10th Jan 2014

Last year, K and I decided to take a short break away from work, soak in some sun, as well as to spend his birthday abroad. So we booked ourselves a vacation to Krabi for earlier this year!

I love going away with K because we get to spend time together, away from everybody, and just enjoy each others' company. The only down side was that I missed Truffle so much. LOL!

I brought a bottle of Pringles to Krabi and halfway through the flight, I noticed that the pressure build-up caused the air inside the bottle to push the foil, making it look bloated.

We arrived at Krabi, booked a couple of trips for the next few days with our hotel, and explored the nearby area for abit before settling for an early dinner at a roadside store which had flies flying around, but hey, that makes the experience more fun and the food more tasty, no?

The next day, we were booked for Phi-Phi Island tour.

We went snorkeling and it was great fun for we were equipped with an underwater camera!

After all the snorkeling and sightseeing, it was time for lunch, where we had a simple buffet lunch on one of the island. Quality of food was meh, but we were hungry and just had to get our stomachs filled.

After we had watermelon, the boy went cranky and played with the seeds.

We then carried on with the tour where we went to look at the Viking Cave, and other islands.

After the tour, we got back to our hotel and washed up before heading out to this nice quaint eatery which had hotel lodging as well. Food was good, not too expensive, and the setting was so chill and relaxing. The staff were all very friendly too!

And that was the end of Day 1+2 of Krabi.
