Chiang Mai Day #3 Kennett’s Tour

Chiang Mai Day #3 Kennett's Tour OK today is temple time for Chiang Mai Day #3 Kennett's Tour. We had pre-booked Mr Kim again, as he really is a top bloke. Off to the mountains today for an adventure, with the key item to explore being Wat Prathat Doi Suthep Rajvoravihara (wow, say that after a few Singha's). This is a mountain top Buddhist Wat (temple), and is flocked to by tourists, and you will see why shortly. First up we have to leave the hotel, and Mum asks Jude and I to collect her hat ...

Chiang Mai Day #2 Kennett’s Tour

Chiang Mai Day #2 Kennett's Tour And here with go with Chiang Mai Day #2 Kennett's Tour. I am calling this one The Day of Firsts, which will become evident as you read on. What a day. We started it off with a nice lay-in, followed by a superb buffet breakfast at The Empress Hotel. I have to say I ate the very best congee I have ever had, and continued to have day after day it was that good. I think the big difference here was that they use pork, and chicken stock not water. It's killer! Add ...

Chiang Mai Day #1 Kennett’s Tour

Chiang Mai Day #1 Kennett's Tour We needed a family break. I have done so much traveling myself this year, but sadly it has all been alone with work. I was chatting with a client over a few beers one evening, and we got on to travel and me being a foodie. James said; "In that case you simply must go to Chiang Mai, as that is the place I have had some of the very best food ever!" I was sold, I booked immediately and so started Chiang Mai Day #1 Kennett's Tour. We checked in to The Empress ...

Brunch @ Al Forno @ 400 East Coast Road

Brunch @ Al Forno @ 400 East Coast Road Do you have family? Family that like great food. Do you like getting all of the family together for family lunches. If you do, look no further than Brunch @ Al Forno @ 400 East Coast Road. I tell you, these boys ROCK. We have been here loads of times. They vary the menu week to week, so even if you went 4 times in a month you would not be eating the same. All the food is fresh, and it is superior quality. The free-flow beer and Prosecco really is that, ...

Viva Mexico, @ Cuppage Terrace

Viva Mexico, @ Cuppage Terrace Viva Mexico, @ Cuppage Terrace is a place you have to attend if you like Mexican style food. We came today, and were blown away by the quality of the food. It's just off Orchard Road, behind Robinson's Shopping Centre. There is a parade of restaurants there called Cuppage Terrace. Today we chose Mexican from the amazing array of choices - Japanese, Indian, even Harry's is in the mix. You must come here. This is the food you want to eat, when you are off your ...

ChillaxBBQ Part Deux

ChillaxBBQ Part Deux It was our second attempt - ChillaxBBQ Part Deux. This time for our mate Jonny Higgins and his 'not-surprise' birthday BBQ, after the Singapore 7's. Loads of HUGE Wanderers Rugby Team turned up, so food was designed to be on the large side too. Kids in the mix as well, so catering for them too. We had a ball, we cooked hard, we turned out amazing stuff. I am proud to say the latter. I think all enjoyed. Helped by the usual crew, so call outs to; Oliver and Amy Kennett ...

Blu Jaz Cafe @ Bali Lane

Blu Jaz Cafe @ Bali Lane We have not been to this area for an age. My tattooist, Derrik, moved from Haji Lane, and work moved from Gateway Towers, so we have had no real reason to be down here. But today I was visiting the boys at Hounds of the Baskervilles, for a wee beard trim and we decided to have dinner at my old favourite haunt; Blu Jaz Cafe @ Bali Lane. So glad we did this. It was packed to the rafters for the 3-4 hours we were there. Mobbed in fact. This whole area has become the ...

ChillaxBBQ inaugural event

ChillaxBBQ inaugural event You know when you have one of those ideas and you think, yeah never gonna happen? Well my mate Rutherford and I had one. Did we make it happen? This day was the first - concept to reality. We made it happen - this is ChillaxBBQ inaugural event. How excited were we to be cooking for our mates AJ and Jerri and their celebration of their newborn Kaius? I tell you what, not just excited, but quietly having kittens. A list of 80 turning up, that turned in to 120. OMG!!! ...
