Bai Bai treated like Royalty @ My Little Spanish Place

Bai Bai treated like Royalty @ My Little Spanish Place My Sister-in-law happens to with us from Brunei for a couple of weeks. We went shopping to get some Chelsea stuff for the kids, for the game in a coupe of weeks.

So here is how we had Bai Bai treated like Royalty @ My Little Spanish Place. It was almost like we ...

Chiang Mai Day #4 Kennett’s Tour

Chiang Mai Day #4 Kennett's Tour Chiang Mai Day #4 Kennett's Tour, or water day as it became affectionately known. Our mate Mr Kim came and picked us up. Let's do something a little different today. Off we go to  hot springs, and water parks. The hot springs are a fair jaunt out of town, but in some beautiful countryside of Thailand. This place is at Sankampaeng Hot Springs. Yep it is volcanic, yep it is smelly because of the sulphur, it's very hot too. But a VERY cool place. It costs about ...

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 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 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, ...
