A bit of sunshine might help beat the flu

so I'll start with this ;)

Inside and outside of the Grand Palace

We had another wonderful vacation in Bangkok (again)... I have actually been there more than a dozen times, but this is the very first for Jasmine.

She's definitely having much fun in the sun...

We took her to the Children's Discovery Museum opposite the Chatuchak Weekend Market on our second day. Honestly, the musuem is a little run-down but Jasmine didn't seem to mind at all.

Oops and what's he doing with my yarn?!

hehe... with Jasmine around, how could I possibly have time to knit... so this naughty little skein went out on a tour.

Well, among the hundreds of reasons to love Bangkok, the charming restaurants and yummy food definitely topped our list....

Le Dalat Indochine Vietnamese Restaurant

Chocolate Hazelnut Crepe from the Food Loft at Chidlom Central (my favorite shopping place). Their range of baby/kidswears and homewares are amazingly attractive. I even found some knitting needles and yarns at their craft section. Mostly acrylics though, but the salespersons were super friendly and went out of their way to tell me about this yarn and craft store that is supposed to be huge.
Too bad, I couldn't make it this time so I can't report on it.

Over and out from sunny Bangkok :)

First comment! I hope that you feel better. My yarn arrived - do you want some samples for more dyeing fun? Email me your address and I'll pop it in the mail.

Both the dessert and yarn do look yummy! It looks like a goregous city.
