I got this super cute fabric from Spotlight media launch day earlier. After made a dress for bff, there are some leftover, such a waste of throwing away. Hence I decided to made versatile CAT BROOCH, 100% perfect match of that cat dress, on shirt collar,or even a bag. CAT BROOCH look pretty much alike with couture accessory. Now you can have a piece of designer statement jewel, make it by your own self without burning a hole of your wallet. For further detail, please watch the tutorial video below.

< PART I : Best Gift for Christmas 2013 >

I was so exciting when I knew there is a little one in my bump. Life is totally changed after all, my brain can’t stop figuring what can I do to wait for his/her arrival in this world. Christmas just around the corner, I used to plan how will I spent these fabulous festival season for myself. But now, my whole world spinning around the bump. I have been thinking of designing something name after him/her, but my previously world has nothing to do in baby’s world. Baby don’t need fantastic fashion stuffs.

Next year is a horse year in Chinese zodiac. I lost an old horse early this year (my dad passed away early this year and he was a horse), I never thought I will bring a new horse family member next year. Hence I came out with this idea, a collection of 12 pieces PONY to CELEBRATE soft toy name after my baby bump. Eleven of them available for sales, and one of them is not for sales (Only my child will have it! :P ) Having a pony is a blessed, the bless of mother to her baby. Each of pony is handmade with love in limited piece. Beside of selling them out, I have reserved one set for this year Christmas Charity Donation (please read the meaningful PART 2 in this post later.) Okay now lets have a look of my pony collection, each of them is uniquely, so do our children…

To all of my dear readers, you are warned that this post is not suitable to be viewed with empty stomach. You will be feed with thirty over irresistible food pix later. All food pix are taken during mt last trip, bloggers always feed their camera before feeding their mouth.

Coconut, spelling of an old-fashioned form of the word. The term is derived from 16th century Portuguese and Spanish cocos, meaning “grinning face”, from the three small holes on the coconut shell that resemble human facial features (source fr here). Coconut seen everywhere in Thailand, coconut water is the my favor drink, good for reducing your body inner heat.

Experiencing this delightful and refreshing cocktail with coconut milk as its ingredient at Blue Mango Restaurant, luv luv luv!

Okay, when we said Thai food, we can’t miss out tom yum! Its widely served in Thailand. Four of us have been craving this drooling dish almost everymeal, unless three of us was food poison in middle of the trip.

Pad Thai, from Blue Mango Restaurant.

We at Blue Mango.

Dear food lovers, here’s the cheap food heaven!

A hawker stall near junction of Ao Nang Night Market. Don’t really understand what was written on menu, we order by pointing the food out. ^^

Super stew pork leg.

Don’t really know what is this, I can’t read Thai but taste good also.

Fried chicken dish, thumbs up! From the same stall as well.

Steam water chestnut, the first stall at the entrance of night market. The little stall was nicely decorated by pandan-leaf-fold roses.

I told the lady boss the roses are beautiful, she made one for me instantly. ^^

Look good but didn’t try out, my stomach running full…

Guess their typical way of ikan bakar, saw them in Bangkok before.

Nangka jeruk?

Sweet dessert, have no idea what’s it made of. The owner cant speak English I can’t speak Thai, I only know swadeekap kap kap kap…

I grab frozen yogurt at this stall as my dessert.

Not kidding, they are really pure juice.

Street hawker food: Pancake

Street hawker food: Monkey noodle
I am not sure the boss kidding on it or it really called that funny name. It was the last bowl when I go near the stall and it was belong to someone else, so didn’t try out this, guess it taste good.

Thai is an art place, they emphasize the beauty of display, even just a piece of pineapple.

Street hawker food: prawn tempura

Okay, I am very very fascinated in this dish: Som Tam!!! I saw a stall surrounded by local people and tourist, I go near to check it out. It was just like local rojak, he sliced everything inside a mortar, pour in seasoning then mix everything well. It can be eaten like this or served with noodles. I can’t resist how tasty it is after first bite.

I observe what he got in his stall, and I swear I go back I must make my own! ^^

Tada, here you are! My version of Som Tam in Queenie kitchen! I am using:

extra virgin olive oil (I swap oil dressing to olive oil , the only oil I have in my house. ><)
cincalok ( made from Malaka one, hahaha)
fish sauce
the greenest papaya I pick from grocer store
long beans
tomato
cucumber
lemon juice (it suppose using lime juice actually)
cili padi

I slice my papaya in this way.

Everything sliced then pour in seasoning according your taste.

Chilled and served.
I have been keep making this dish almost twice a week since back from Krabi…
