Fancy a splash?

The Big Chili continues to behave like an oven. As I type this, I am chatting on the phone with a friend who is speeding on an Arabian expressway. She reports it's pouring around Abu Dhabi. I tell her I'm going island-hopping. In my dream, that is. For now I am grateful for faves of the week::

Life-saving AC. Since walking around in rising temps this invention has become my best friend. And as for the board room thingy with an amusing laptop reflection that's bluer than the blue above it, that's where I was officially informed about 

Remuneration. I thought it went with the normal salary but it seems the university is happy to pay researchers extra.

Imagination. It does help when there is something to look forward to.

Tax sorted. A colleague fixed a little problem in it for me. Until next year Mr Tax. For now I'm celebrating with some
Cold Stone delight. A yummy antidote to the notorious Bangkok heat.

I may still fancy a splash. It's seriously hot in here. When things at work calm down, it's going to be a cool splash. Here's wishing us all a great week.

Visit: Blue Monday * Reflections * Friday's Fave Five * Skywatch * Share the Joy * Water World


  1. Great images, thanks for sharing :)

  2. That middle shot is so inviting!

  3. Love that beach shot! Looks like a popular snorkeling spot.

  4. the second one is extremely gorgeous :) beautiful captures :)

  5. It's morning here but hey, I can eat ice cream any time of day rofl. I am a sucker for water and sky meeting up at the horizon interrupted by rock and/or people. Nice images.

  6. Sounds like a very rewarding week! We got our taxes straightened out this week, too, with my dad's help.

    ColdStone is always fun. :) What's the purplish flavor on the right side?

    1. It's moist chocolate cake with pecans underneath.

  7. The reflection shot is really excellent, love how the colours of the screen look slightly different in the reflection


  8. Great presentation, amazing pictures... I hope you won't get too hot, though... ^^

  9. I would have a hard time surviving without AC in the summer here. The heat just seems to drain all my energy.

    How neat that you got extra pay for the research you did!

    My husband just got our taxes done a couple of weeks ago, with good results. Glad that's over for another year.

    That dessert looks yummy!

  10. The table is like a mirror... great reflection

  11. Wonderful sky shot for SWF and definitely take a 'splash' ~ Happy Weekend to you ~ xxx

  14. Hello Hazel,

    Thanks for sharing this blue laptop and scenery. I do love AC too, and could not live without it. As for taking a splash with you: I'll sit on the sidelines and smile.

    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

  15. Oh I wish I didn't read this hungry. Must. Avoid. Sweets - I'm going to go chew on kale and remember the sweet stuff.

  16. I lived in Indonesia---I remember HOT. AC is our best friend, for sure.
    Oooh, extra cash! Equals extra splashes and ice cream.

  17. same here, getting to be quite unbearable specially. around noon; and yes, sooo thankful for the air conditioner!!!

    thanks so much for sharing over at Food Friday, Hazel
