Another Hospital Trip

Yesterday was a strange day for you, everything was out of sync. On an hour drive to your grandparents you decided to fall asleep, which usually means your afternoon nap will now be very late in the afternoon, and that is exactly what had happened. You went to sleep at around 14:00 (missing your lunch) and didn’t wake up again until 17:00 after which you had your lunch.

Your mother and I were at work, where I received a phone call from my mother saying that you were behaving rather strangely. Apparently after your (very) late lunch my mother gave you a small biscuit and that had somehow made you threw up, after which you had acted like something was stuck in your throat/nose. You were walking around and opening your mouth trying to cough and keep rubbing your face with your hands.

Your grandmother was also not feeling well (very upset stomach), so your mother had to rushed home to take you to the hospital, accompanying you was my aunt (she is fantastic and absolutely adore you, she has been helping to look after you since you were born).

After parking the car at BNH, you decided to have a huge sneeze… and guessed what happened? A piece of mince pork came out from your throat… and that was it, all was fine again, but to be safe your mother took you to see the doctor anyway, after a lot of probing (I was told you were being your difficult self again), you were declared in perfect health (touch wood).

You are right now at home, probably running around chasing either the spider by the rear of the house, a couple of cats that keep coming to the garage, or most likely the dog next door.

Love you.

Wonderful Saturday

For the past couple Saturdays you were pretty stuck at home because of a runny nose, and with all of this H1N1 thing romping through Bangkok we thought it would be best for you to remain at home. We were told to stay away from crowded places (over 6,000 have been infected and with 44 deaths we are taking all the precautions we can), meaning department stores were also out of limit for you as well.


DSC_1697But this week, your runny nose had gone, and we were afraid that you were getting bored out of your little skull, we had decided to go back to Gymboree for your weekly class (I don’t think you can really call it a class, more like an assault course for babies)…


“Oh Mum, how many times do I need to tell you, I don’t want to work in a circus when I grow up.”


It was great to see you running, laughing and doing all you can, not to do what we asked you to do (nothing new here :) ), after Gymboree we had some time spare so we decided to go back to Phuttamonthon (it had been a few months since we were last there).

This time we had chosen to visit a new spot, somewhere more open so that you can run around and feed the fishes.
































This is a huge place, I am sure you can visit it everyday and not going to the same spot twice, anyway it was a great way to end the day. I should be having some free time soon, and we are still deciding to either take you to a huge waterfall or back to the sea again, looking at the weather we are having lately, together with the ‘flu’ thing, I think it may be best to stay home a while.  
Love you.

Short Trip

G map Wat Don Wai This is Wat Don Wai, apart from being a very well known temple, another of its attraction is the colourful market and restaurants, many people seem to be selling ducks (cooked ones) as well as traditional Thai sweets, in fact the list just goes on and on.

Unfortunately, with only the 3 of us being there, this subsequently means we had to follow our primary formation… in simple words, your mother carried you, and I carried everything else (your mother’s rather HUGE handbag (made from elephant’s skin, and it must have taken at least 17 elephants (ears and all) to make this bag, because it is gargantuan colossal of a bag), all the shopping stuff, my bag, your bag, I think you get the picture). 

So, with my hands being rather full, it was darn near impossible to put everything down, then take out the camera to shoot a few shots of you and your mother… So the camera stay mainly in the bag… sorry.

What I had managed to shoot was not too bad, but the background is so boring… nonetheless, you had a great time seeing and hearing new things…, we can not wait to take you overseas…

Skiving Off Work…

We had only found out on the Friday that our beloved boss had decided to give us Monday (06.07.09) off, thus making it an extra long weekend from Saturday through to Tuesday, a 4 days weekend, it just doesn’t get better than that… well… it just got better because I had decided to take Wednesday off as well.

I must say that Wednesday was spent to the fullest, after lunch we took off across the city to your grand parents, it must have taken just a little over an hour by car to get there, but we were there only long enough for you to have your snack before heading off again to Safari World… what a laugh that was…

Here is a little Bambi waiting for a shot gun… Only kidding :)

I don’t think you were actually looking at anything in particular, but the puzzlement on your face was probably due to the smell of Rhinosaurous’ poo, calling it pungent just doesn’t do it any justice…


Driving through the dangerous animal enclosures reminded me of  the film Jurassic Park, waiting for the heavy metal gates to open and close… was kind a fun, but by the time you got passed the gates and saw the tigers and lions (in separate section) it was a bit of an anti-climax… I mean, I didn’t expect them to be in hunting mode like on the discovery channel, but to see them just lying there and relaxing was nice… that’s it… just nice…

Definitely going back there soon, we didn’t have enough time for one of the highlight, feeding the Giraffes…can not wait to see your face being that close to the Giraffes, assuming we all survive the H1N1 flu… hee hee.

Love you…
