Dory Seafood Bistro

Thanks to calamari I found Dory

And the lemon grass juice transported me back to those late afternoons long ago when Ma would start preparing dinner and would send me to the backyard to get a sprig of lemon grass that she would add to her fat mackerel soup. 

I like calamari; been eating bowls and plates of the rings from time to time since falling in love with them hanging out late 90s in Planet Hollywood - a place which seems to have disappeared from view along Bangkok's Ploen Chit Road. 

That's how a little hankering led me to Dory

I was admiring the dainty windows and staring at the ceiling while waiting for my food. Aren't these chandeliers reminiscent of anchors?  

But then of course it's seafood and Dory

If I could not associate the words I might as well start imagining a trident before Ariel and Flounder come gliding by.

But what do you do when your order takes long to arrive and you're waiting in the midst of Greek-inspired deco? 

I went traipsing Kalokairi to the tune of Mamma Mia but in my seat on -

L5,5006-5007, Zone San Francisco, Sukhumvit Road Soi 19, Terminal 21, North Klong Toei, Wattana, Bangkok 10110.

Wonder of a family tale

The Durrells: a trailer scene I have a dream... if you see the wonder of a fam'ly tale... I believe in --- The Durrells! I am dreaming. Oh well I did say 'I have a dream...'? I am only up to watching the trailer right now since I do not even know where in the name of all Thai TV stations or something like Thai PBS or Netflix Thailand can I find this series. And I saw Kitty Butler! (Tipping the Velvet) Aha! Why didn't I think of watching other films that star Keely Hawes? Maybe now I will.

Qrookshanqs joins a quorum of witches

Prologue: Thailand's Supreme Patriarch is dead.  The whole kingdom is in mourning mode. And that also means Khaosan Road, a usual party venue, is shut down. Parties go on though but behind closed doors and kept as private and quiet as possible. And that's how - Qrookshanqs ignores Ermione and wanders into Medusa's cave...  xxx xxx She comes as Grumpy Cat, tries not to forget who she is . Qrookshanqs is convinced that those are Nagini's ancestors on Medusa's head, and thinks what a waste of cauldron time taking photos is A smiling one joins them and the quorum is complete. Soon they chant eye of newt, toe of frog... lizard's leg and howlet's wing . Qrookshanks, ever the grief sucker, grumbles how do witches " boil and bake " fillet of a fenney snake or wool of bat at the same time ? Anyone? No one huh? Alright, grumpy mood intensifying nicely... Until the party is peaking and she starts smiling,


I'm riding along Mommy Moments this week; my first post in months. I miss this meme, the kids' photos and the mommy chats. Alrighty here's CJ eyeing the next ride... This was some space capsule if I remembered it right - Everytime I fasten CJ on a helicopter, I daydream of my very first experience with aircrafts. I was his age. A helicopter with a bride on board flew low over our neighborhood dropping us bunches of red bougainvillas. To this day that beautiful spectacle remains alluringly fresh in my mind. For CJ I like to think this ride symbolizes a limitless sky he could soar into. I love the sensation of holding and releasing my breath watching him take off, and hoping he will be just fine.
