Sushi Treat

Hello all
Just thot to post sumthing since it seems like ages

Today (10th July 2013) me n hubby made a random plan for sushi
Since I cannot have raw meat right now I ordered for cucumber sushi, while hubby ordered for cucumber sushi, tuna sushi n volcano sushi for trial dat was made of salmon, eel sauce n mayo topped wid crushed shrimp crackers.
Cucumber n tuna sushi came first in the platter but we were too hungry to wait for a pic of platter so I just took pics of wat all I cud hehe

Image

Didnt take any pic of tuna sushi but I just had to take the pic of the volcano sushi wen it arrived….. it was hugeeeee
Image

Since there was mayo in it as well it turned out pretty heavy. Outta 8 pieces Hubby could only finish 5

But I wanted to eat more n only Cucumber sushi wasn’t enough for my hungry belly I ended up ordering Chicken Taypanyaki wid garlic rice
Oooo wat a bliss I ate like I had been hungry for ages lol

Image

Image

Stuffed and satisfied wid out food, we headed to the ground floor after paying the bill only to b called back from half way for our complimentary fried ice cream dat was ready on our table. I dunno why we got a complimentary ice cream but who cares
It was pretty good, only if we had more space in our sinfully stuffed tummies, we wud have finished it all, but couldn’t lol
Image

Over all, it was a good outing n we really enjoyed ourselves. šŸ˜€

Pattaya Trip Day 1

1st Jan 2013
New year was great, we came home early n packed our bags for 2 days stay in Pattaya n slept for an early start. Morning we were all ready to leave, enjoyed the swing outside my friend’s house and took a pic of lush green garden till out Cab came to take us to the bus station.

Image

Once at bus station, we took our tickets n settled in our seats in the bus, i wasĀ luckyĀ to get frontal seat coz i am one of those who get motion sickness so any seats at the back are like not too good for me, got water for the way šŸ˜€Image

The ride was not that bad, i was sleeping most of the way. Finally reached Pattaya, got a taxi pickup that canĀ accommodateĀ atelast 8 comfortably. we were lucky to have just 6 with every one’sĀ luggageĀ it was comfortable enough and am sure thereĀ couldn’tĀ have been room for another person. The pick up truck asked every one where they wanted to go and kept dropping off people as their hotels approached
iĀ didn’tĀ take a pic of that pickup so picked it form the web for posting here

Image

The pickup dropped us to our hotel, A One Royal Cruise Hotel. very nicely done had two wings, the reception was friendly and had a happy new year sign since it was 1st Jan, Felt welcoming šŸ™‚

ImageImage
The check-in in took almost 45 minutes, i was tired n starving n cudnt wait to get settled in the room,Ā freshen upĀ and hunt out for food, so while waiting o took a few more pics of the lobby among which i really liked the flower pots hehe

Image
Finally in the room, the entire hotel is themed and built in the shape of a cruise, and so the rooms were the same theme, the mirror was in a big emergency floating tire, the pillow covers were in navy blue n white. and the walls had paintings of a sailor’s hand salute and a couple holding hands by the sea

ImageImageImageImage

After settling in we went out in search of food, it was almost late afternoon, so we hardly found any thing open for lunch. we start to the right side from the hotel.Ā WalkingĀ for a good long 15 minutes (it felt long with the sun n hunger) lol we found a restaurant named Tavern by the sea.

Image

We ordered stir fry chicken withĀ cashewĀ nuts and sticky rice (our fav dish), orange juice for hubby and water for me ( i was sorta dieting) and attacked it so instantly that i hardly got to take any pics of it.

ImageImage
Back in the room, i made tea for my self n hubby from ourĀ complementaryĀ Tea set, and iĀ reallyĀ liked theĀ stirrerĀ  it was in the shape of a oar. sooo cute i totally wanted to bring it home as aĀ souvenirĀ  šŸ˜›

ImageImageImage

Our hotel was at the sea front, like u can just walk out the back side, cross the road and ur at the sea, we hubby n I went to the shore to enjoy our evening, they have a good arrangement with loads of chairs that they take 50 baht for an hour, and u can sit on them n enjoy the sea n the waves, the breeze and wat not.Image

ImageImage

We spend some good two hours there, time just flew. weĀ enjoyedĀ the sunset took like a million pics, also a few of our hotel that now looked amazing with all the lights on

ImageImageImage

From the beach we decided to walk in left direction and see what all is there, finally decided forĀ ItalianĀ place, that had a long lane with chairs on oneĀ sideĀ and sort of an art gallery, well not really but had alot of paintingsĀ keptĀ here n there, probably for the tourists to buy. some of them were really amazing

ImageImage

We ordered garlic bread n pina colada for hubby, coke for me and chicken pizza. I wanted to be safe and not order any thing i would’nt wanna eat.

ImageImageImageImage
The garlic bread had big chunks of garlic, ewwwww

Image

The pizza luked a lil burnt and the chicken just seemed like boiled pieces with hardly any taste, but we still had it coz we were way too hungry.

ImageImage

After dinner we walked back to our hotel, picked a few munchies from 7/11 for the night but tired from the entire day, we retired to bed almost instantly šŸ™‚

Our first day at Pattaya was amazing over all, we simply loved it andĀ couldn’tĀ wait for our second day where we planned to explore a lil more and do some activities

Take tuned for more from the Pattaya trip in my next post. šŸ˜‰

Bangkok Trip story

Part 1 (Day 30th Dec 2012- Day 31st Dec 2012)

So i have been putting up writing about my trip for so long now, so much has happened in between my arrival back till now but am not gonna get into that at this point, will share that in a diff post šŸ™‚ So since it had been such a long time that i actually thought i will notĀ rememberĀ what all i wanted to share. thank god i had the pictures saved in aĀ separateĀ folder, and while editing them today it all just came back to me, fresh as it just happened yesterday.
So here we go

On blog the last thing i shared was me on the airport n the a sunrise atĀ BangkokĀ airport n my friend was at the airport with her hubby to collect us šŸ™‚

we went home all happy andĀ cheeringĀ  although i was a lil tired form the flight n coz iĀ wasn’tĀ too well it feltĀ moreĀ tiring then usual. after a light breakfast we slept for a whileĀ sinceĀ it was only early morning that we reached. For lunch we went out to to a Mall and from there i told my friend that i wanna visit another Mall so she and hubby can go home and me and hubby will take a BTS (BangkokĀ transit system) to the mall n then will come home in the Cab. Since itĀ wasn’tĀ my very first time toĀ BangkokĀ  i just revised the routes with my friend n off me n hubby went exploring the world hehe. got a few stuff for friends back home from that mall and by late evening reached home all tired. i cud have just hit the bed instantly but instead we had dinner and then watched a movie with my friends. finally the day came to an end, by now my head was spinning with the flight travel (u know how u feelĀ disorientedĀ and loose balance every now n then after almost a train travel) i felt miserable.

But nothing that a good nights sleep cant do, so the next morning we woke up fresh and ready for the day. My friend had to takeĀ herĀ 4 months old daughter for a doc chk-up so we tagged along and after the doc’s visit stopped atĀ StarbucksĀ for sum yummy caramel coffee nĀ cinnamonĀ roll for hubby and hot chocolate and sum yummyĀ EspressoĀ brownie for me . OMG its like out of the world n literally melts in the mouth šŸ˜€

Hot Chocolate

We went home after our yummy for the tummy session. Left the sleeping baby at home with the maid. and again left for a near by new mall that had just opened. this time my friend’s Shih tzu “Ruby” came along.

ImageImage

Off courseĀ we had to leave her in the car. weĀ weren’tĀ sure if the mall allows pets in. and we planned to come back quickly. in the Mall we saw the most adorable littleĀ PomeranianĀ . i get a better picture of this happy hyper lil puppy. and we thought if we knew we wud have brought Ruby in with us.:)

Image

Lil furry Pomeranian

It was a nice mall but alot of shops were still waiting to open up, so our trip to it was much quicker since we just strolled along the entire mall to see wat all is there, n took a few pics of me n hubby šŸ™‚

Image

Back home we relaxed a little. There is a nice little pond along with a walking strip in theĀ condominiumsĀ where my friend lives. I have always enjoyed walking there and sitting by the pond, watching koi’s swim by, so i took hubby out for a walk and later sat on the benches near the pond and enjoyed the fresh breath ofĀ BangkokĀ night.

It was all so peace, i wanted the moment to cease.:))

Image

Finally its the New year so we kept it light for the day since we knew we will go out in the night, yet had to come back early coz me n hubby planned to leave for Pattaya the very next morning. All dressed for the celebrations we went off to a roof top of a high rise hotel to celebrate the new years eve while watching the fireworks

 

ImageImageImageImage

Our sofa’s boomed with theĀ vibrationĀ of the fireworks. It was amazing.

Image

With the count down, it was aĀ beginningĀ of a new year. Cheers and whistles all in the air along with the fireworks wishing it to be a Very Happy New Year šŸ™‚

Sooo wat did u all do for the new year?

Food in a week

Food can b so amazing, no matter wat we r busy into, we always find out time to eat from simple to the most exotic food….but wen u dont have much options u gotta make the best of wat u have šŸ™‚ I had sum yummies this last week First a healthy yummy breakfast…..

image

I know alot of ppl will says dats not healthy its a fried egg n buttered bread. But I feel that for an average person its good enough. But yes for someone who is trying to diet this may be a little toooo healthy hehe Then I had my fav cup of tea

image

Two teabags of lipton makes me a perfect strong tea to kickstart the day One of the evenings I went to dads for a night stay n we went out n gobbled on icecream

image

Scoop of chocolate & coffee, topped wid hard dark chocolate sauce n soft chocolate sauce & a little sprinkle of chocolate sprinkles, nuts n cookie šŸ˜€ *Slurp* Later for dinner I made hotdogs for me n dad

image

I started with cutting out the buns, I had cut a cheese slice in 3, n used 2 pieces of cheese in each hotdog. A little spread of mayo, just a thin line from one end to another of the bun. I tried to steam boil the sausage so it remain soft n juicy, only boiling makes it a lil dry I feel. Sooo I placed freshly steam boiled sausage in each hotdog over the cheese, helps it melt fast…. Then a fine line of ketchup and a zigzag of mustard (makes my hotdogs luk prettyyyyyy) oooh I also had a few frozen fries that I fried to go with the hotdogs…… Was fun! Another morning I was out for some work and grabbed a sandwich from Dunkins for hubby n myself

image

Wat else is better to celebrate a beautiful day wid Dunkins egg n cheese sandwich… I loveeeeee them but only once or twice a year… Too much will eventually make me luk like a donut :p We finally have some winters, I was enjoying an evening wid my mom in law…. The best drink I could find my self to enjoy the evening with was

image

Warm ovaltine wid a lil sprinkle of cocoa just to look good šŸ˜€ Wow my post makes me look like such a fatty lol. I just like to enjoy good flavors but offcourse in a limited quantity… I hate depriving my self and I feel we shouldn’t. If I feel like eating sumthing I will, in a quantity that wont harm much followed with extra 20 mins of walk:)

All I would say is that one should eat n stay healthy, dont deprive ur self but yes dont go over board as well:)
