Eric’s favorite food amongst the many delicacies here.
There’s the uberlicious roast pork (sweet or salted versions), noodles (home cooked), Tom Yum Goong or River Fish … ahhh~ Endless selections …
but nooo … he’s ultra loyal to his SUCKLING PIG!

Here’s a toast to his loyalty!

we went to the restaurant that serves THE infamous Eric’s-SPig yesterday! it was a 1 hour (plus minus 15 mins) drive from my dad’s place and we reached there around 12 plus Thai time for lunch.

My dad ordered all the stuff and while waiting there were little girls selling peanuts and fruits (for appetitizers, I think)…
my dad’s mother-in-law bought a few packets from them … his mother-in-law came all the way from Sukothai (wonder if the spelling is right) to visit her daughter, sons and grandchildren.
anyway … they served the food and here’re the pictures~

There were lotsa people with us for lunch this time.
It was really joyous and blissful!


My sisters, Eric and I!


Qin Feng(Nui) and her grandmother! 😀


My favorite auntie!! I seem to only have this picture of her… SORRY!


Qin Yu(Ma Yi = Ants in Mandarin Chinese) and her mommy! I love this series of pictures… don’t know why but I find these pics really beautiful!
I think i repeated myself too many times…
bo bian, i too long winded…Eric getting sick of me repeating that I like the 3 photos, posting them wherever I can…
but they’re soooooo beautiful~


Here’s where we had the Suckling Pig … just beside Mekong River…
On the other side of the bank, it’s Laos, you can vaguely see the silhouette of the mountains!
it’s grand when I look from this side of the bank – makes me wanna take a deep breath! (don’t know why!)

The day before yesterday … we went trekking into the deeper parts of my daddy’s place. Armed with nothing but a pair of track pants, long sleeve top (one that was really not suitable for the rough conditions that I went through) and flats (those that you’ll wear to town, along with shorts or skirts; without wearing socks too!!!)… I went along with my dad, Eric (who was wearing the same pair of FBT trackpants and an extra windbreaker that was borrowed from someone else), my dad’s wife, another man who knows his way around the mass undergrowth and overGROWN grassland, a little boy who was very kind & sweet ‘cos he sometimes waited for the really-slow-walking-dragged-everyone’s pace down-YOURS TRULY and helped carried water, which was life-saving!

We did lose our way a few times! It wasn’t very bad because we did find our way in the end~ and it was really very fun!
The weather was fantastic – a little cooling, yet not too cold… There was sunshine yet not too glaring and overbearing!
Perfect for a little excursion like this!
ok, not a little but MASSIVE (for me) …
I like stuff like that… but I would really prefer if I were wearing more suitable footwear!
Boots would be PUUURFECT! I would have trampled through the mud (if there was any) like nobody’s business and confidently stride through the sharp blades of grass and protruding branches that stuck out like death traps without any worries.
Cautiously lifting my legs in order not to get my insteps cut and stabbed by the grass blades & branches proved to be more tiring than the trek itself! Moreoever, it’s frustrating! Despite my efforts, the exposed parts of my feet still got a few scraps (though it was nothing serious) …
Eric did get his hand cut towards the end when he was trying to help me up from a water hole-lookalike. There was nothing for me to grab on (to climb up the hole) and therefore he had to get himself up first and give me a hand…
I’m not making much sense here since I couldn’t really recall what happened then.
All I could remember was, Eric went “Ouch!” or was it “Shit!” and his hand was bleeding…
haha
Luckily, we were near the exit! not that it’s an official exit or something, we just randomly walked… with my dad and the experienced (know the way) guide in front hacking our way through the branches that stuck out… the branches would most probably grew their way back, blocking the “path” we cut through by now.

ahhh … I wanna do it again.
this time, with boots and suitable attire!
the weather can stay the same! 😀

Jun’07

I was at Koh Samet (Rayong, Thailand). This beach resort is not frequently visited by Singaporeans, but the locals & other foreigners. It’s quieter & less crowded than the famous Koh Samui.

Twice I’ve been there, and I would always buy the roti prata from this dude! He’s uber cool and friendly! and his desert prata is delicious! hahahhaha … oh and he speaks damn lots of languages fluently.
English, Thailand (like a native), some indian dialect & mandarin (!!) 😀

Note: I actually copied the text from my FaceBook’s SuperWall … I’m sooo lazy today… *bleh*

thanks to June… she sent me the pics…

miraculously~
i did.. i did… i did pass my exams… with the grace of whatever gods who are out there…
*mumbles* “heng ah…” + a long sigh of relief

n well.. CHINA IS HELL!! i hate china n this is my first n last time there…
not exactly the first since i go hongkong quite often
but still… there’re still toilets with no doors… n some uncivilised chinawoman who did her business with the door unlocked…
as i was saying, they are just so barbaric that they cant change their behaviours…

n the people on the streets are FUCKING rude… not forgetting the waitress who spill soup all over our dishes coz she didn’t want to distribute the soup for us but was asked to … (soup usually comes in a big bowl for the designated amount of guests.. n properly, less barbaric waitresses are supposed to distribute them for the guests)
oh yah … n the loud mouths…
they speak as though they are the only ones in public n u can never differentiate if they are chit chatting or having a fight…coz of the tone n volume..

china is crap man..
if u wanna trick me to go there again..
let me say one sentence – “over my dead n rotting body”

this time… my mom cheated me …
i told her i didn’t want to go china unless it’s hongkong…
but she called me in the midst of my Thailand trip… n told me she booked the tix already… oh n June’s going as a sidenote…

normally when June’s going… i will usually be more willing to tag along since there’s company…
this time… i heard from june that her mom used the same tactics to trick her …
how nice.. mommies~

remember that Xiao Long Bao(XLB) comes from Shanghai?
shanghai’s XLB sux like hell..they are all so…
not tasty…
disgusting.. i dunno which word to use…
we ordered 6-7 baskets(is that the word for the brown thing they use to contain XLB…argh whatever~) of XLB… n we only ate those that are edible…
the rest(about more than half left) we wanted to takeaway for the tour guide(since it ‘s THEIR kind of taste…we tot the tour guide might like it… HE RECOMMANDED THE PLACE n it was supposed to be one of the best restaurants that served XLB)
n u know what? other than the bad service from the waitress there… she actually told us we cant takeaway the food… what fuck is that?
don’t they know that the customer is ALWAYS right??
cant she make an exception since we REQUESTED nicely to takeaway their horridly tasting food… so that we wouldn’t waste it..
but NO!! she gave us a very fucked up look n said, “u cant takeaway”
i almost cursed FUCK YOU if not my younger sister, Tiffany, was there.

oh.. n they get into fights so fuckingly often that the Gong Ans(the police there) don’t even wink when fights happen…
screwed up… the country is so screwed up!!

fuckingly selfish people…they have there.
though there are also nice people..who willingly allowed my aunt to sit in their shop when she almost fainted in the bazaar.
that’s like… the minority…

n there was this fucked up stall owner in the bazaar… when i was looking at stuff… she was all smiley and tending to my needs…
when i said “it doesn’t matter, thanks”(in mandarin) n was leaving the shop, she replied “i didn’t say it matters” in a fucked up way…as if she was very smart..

get it right…
when I say, “it doesn’t matter, thanks”..
i mean to say “ur stuff sucks like poo … it doesn’t matter to waste my time here at ur foul smelling n stuffy shop… thanks for tending to me”
who fucking cares if it matters to u or not…

a few good things in shanghai:
1. the acrobatics show was good…in fact, it was superb…but alittle on the expensive side…
June n I had this conclusion that all good looking youths of shanghai are recruited into the group doing the show.
coz the locals that we saw on the streets… are…
*regurgitates yesterday swensens dinner*

2. Shanghai Tan(上海滩) is a beautiful place if u ignore the barbarians around u who either spit on the very-nicely paved walkway… or those who are trying to sell u things… they are…err… fucked up?
the scenery is great!! n the wind…wootz… u’ll feel superbly refreshed… like i say, if u ignore the rowdiness n people around u…

3. the silk quilt that i got back from shanghai is freaking soft…
n warm… of course, at a not so low price.
i managed to see people making the silk quilt from raw silk…
n caught a little knowledge on silk worms n the making of silk.
that was really fun …
esp the part when i was playing with the live silkworms… n my mom went squealing n all… hahahaha
she didn’t allow me to touch her till i washed my hands~

er…nothing else is worth remembering about china…
*spits* in virtual ground….(hoping it belongs to china so that i will not get caught)
