The other week as I was heading home from work I saw some folks putting up a fence around the green round the corner. On the fence they were pinning signs which proclaimed that the Chiswick Thai Festival would be setting up there the following day, a day which happened to coincide with my day off. With my love for Thai food (of which there guaranteed to be plenty) it wasn’t exactly a hard decision.
Because I wandered around taking so many photos I’m actually not going to say very much in this post (surprising, I know). Instead I’m going to leave you with a lot of photos of the day – it was fun and the food was uber tasty (even though between Momma Lee & I we only had £15 to spend so couldn’t gorge ourselves as we would have otherwise). Enjoy the photos.
Mango Sticky Rice
BBQ Squid & Prawns
Pretty, right? It was an awesome day.
In other news I’m typing this post from my brand new MacBook Pro! When I got home from dinner last night with Papa Lee at Ken Lo’s Memories of China (really not good, didn’t even bother taking photos of it, don’t go there) I discovered that my MacBook’s hard drive had died, was making strange clicking noises and refusing to turn on. I finally managed to get it on, rescued everything that was on the desktop, and then it died again, refusing to be turned on again. It was like it gave me one last push so that I wouldn’t lose my photos and recipes that were saved to the desktop before I’d had time to transfer them over to my external hard drive. Anyway, long story short, instead of paying an extortionate amount of money to get it fixed I decided to bite the bullet and buy a new operating system, one which will be better suited to my needs (better memory for photos and photo editing) and more of an investment for my “career” (I say “career” because I’m still trying to get there) – the MacBook Pro is beautiful, shiny and runs like a dream. I’m definitely a happy bunny.
That’s all for now, more recipes to come over the next few days so keep an eye out for those. Until then: peace and love.
