Thai Thai: Meet ups!

It’s been raining cats and dogs for the past few days. All sporting events have been cancelled. And I’ve been spending most of my time at home looking at random things online. Oh noes! So boring!! Oh well, at least today was different ahah. Today went to cook lunch in our secret hideout hoho! After that I met up with Manda and Jasmine for tea @ Tiamo. It’s been ages since I met them so we had a lot of catching up to do! Chit chat for awhile at the cafe before heading back to my place and continued chit chatting away ahah. From our conversation, I was educated by Jasmine about the BIG and DANGEROUS “25” years old for GIRLS hoho. But I’m convinced that they need not worry. rwarrr!!


After talking loads of craps and other stuff, we headed over to NB for dinner after waking the fish from his sleep. I introduced to them a Thai Restaurant which I think might have killed them because the Green Curry had the spiciness of the birds eye chilli even though it was called “mild”. Nonetheless fish and I whom had dine here a couple of times already, enjoyed ourselves.


Yiheng’s  spicy mince pork with basil leaves and steamed rice.



My Thai salad with minced meat also known as Larb was an overdose with onions. I had to scoop some onions away ahah. But I still enjoyed the meaty salad!



Lynn’s Pad Thai loaded with Prawns. I’ve had this before and I liked it. It definitely beats the “award” winning Pad Thai at Baiyoke Tower, Bangkok!



This was Jasmine’s pick, the Thai green curry with Spaghetti ahah. Her face turned RED after having it but I felt it tasted ok ahha. Amanda had something similar but instead of noodles, she opted for rice.




A picture together hoho. Not quite clear but oh well, too lazy to set over and over ahah :D


The end of my day!!

Weekend Brunch: Tiamo Cafe

Rwarr! Just woke up from my afternoon nap! SO tired! I slept for 4 hours the night before and last night I had about 7 hours of sleep. I feel that I need to have breakfast every morning if not my stomach will not feel well and that wakes me up before 9 almost everyday!! Last night we went to Burswood Casino where Liz and Pauline lost 20 bucks each. Fishman lost 10. High roller we’re not! All I gambled was a dollar ehehe. I also had a family dinner last night at my Tai Pak’s house. The gathering was pretty large with relatives from Sydney and Singapore here to visit us.


This morning after my breakfast of noodles and egg, my sister dropped by my house at about 10 with Bibi. The so very naughty dog. Still so white, long and playful ahah. She had just visited my aunty from Sydney that was living with my other aunt in Mosman Park. When she reached she was happily running around the house she lived in when my sister left her with us earlier this year for a week or two before heading to Bangkok. She woke Polly and fishman up. Kelvin join the awakened after awhile. When everyone woke up we headed just outside the house for lunch at Tiamo:



Pauline and my Sister!






WenY and Fishman



Kelvin and Polly both ordered  Foccacia with Chicken Strips:


Polly complained tat there was too much bread for its own good. Kelvin seemed fine although he added heaps of aoli to the thing.


Sister’s Penne Mafiosa done with Spaghetti instead!


Looks delicious as usual but unfortunately this time around, it was not salty enough.


This was Yi Heng’s Carbonara!


Should be good. Everyone that has eaten this found it well suited to their taste buds.


And lastly, my BLT with chips! It was yummy, filled with plenty of bacon and tomatoes along with lettuce. Its a healthy option for a carnivore like me who would not have the salad if it came as a side with the sandwich. The bread was thin but because I had breakfast earlier, I was still too full!


Before we had our meals, we made up our minds to have ice choc and sort for dessert. But once we were done with the food. Ours plans were demolished because we were too full to fit anything else in! Been here twice this week. The food is pretty good here although the pasta can sometimes be too soft.


Tonight tonight hmmm what’s happening tonight? Dung knowwwww! TERMINATORRRRRRR

The start of a new end: Finito

My morning started cold and early at about 6.45-ish. Had a cup of warm water as I prepared for my final journey for the semester. Flipped through the notes as I always do, looking for the notes where I’d put the formulas I needed. Left the house around 8.20 and grouped with the other peeps outside the venue where I saw a baby peacock and it’s mom walking around the courtyard! So cute ahah. Exam was ok although I really did not like this unit. Worst unit ever. Did a few excusable mistakes here and there but oh well :P I’m glad its over now.




After the exam we had  lunch @ Toraya a Japanese Restaurant promoted on the Food Pornographer’s Blog which I follow every off and on! Toraya is located in Subiaco just around the corner of Woolworths Subiaco.  I’'ve been around that corner a thousand times since I came to Perth but I’ve never set foot into that restaurant before until just recently!



A little decoration @ Toraya and that is my housemate Kelvin. He looks very Japanese in the picture as he waits for his food :D




I think I’ve gotten fish and Kelvin hooked to the dish recommended. Karage Donburi with Spicy Mayo started my taste buds for the day. Very nicely done.


MODIMG_4125Their Miso soup which is included with the donburi set was easily one of the best Miso soups around. Some might find it too salty but I oh’ just loved it! No stinginess on the paste! Kelvin commented it to be very flavourful when we firs tried it!And damnnn!! At the end of our previous meal here, Kelvin and Fishman says this place pass the taste test. Splendid suggestion from the Food Pornographer!! Wots happening to night? Its HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!!!

Perth’s Mario!: Nuzzino’s il Padrino Caffe!

Yesterday night we have dinner together with my sister and William at Northbridge. Pondering on what to have, Pauline finally decided that we have pizza for dinner. We were not sure what where to eat, so I spontaneously suggested the place where I had my first slice of Pizza in Australia, the il Padrino Caffe just opposite Kakulas Bros which sells spices. This place serves really nice food! Well, with the exception of the Marinara Spaghetti which was an onslaught of seafood @.@. Yh loved it though. The last time I came here was easily 7 years ago.


Forget Caesar’s Pizza in Mundaring and all the hype on it’s pizzas appearing on Iron Chef! Make way for the best Pizza in the world:


This is no joke peeps! Although the owner Nuzzino looks like real life old skool Mario! The food was nice! Damn!! If only I had brought my camera yesterday night! I loved the Tortellini Panna e Prosciutto! Oh the so awesome texture of the Prosciutto on top of the pizza! I find the serving at il Padrino enough for me but for the rest, the serving felt a little small ahah.


At the end of the meal we paid 150 for 2 pizza, 4 pastas and 3 serves of Tiramisu! The elderly waitress, his wife I believe was very nice to serve us large slices of tiramisu with ice cream. Both which are homemade of course!! But Polly says that the Tiramisu @ South Perth is larger! And for some reason, everyone calls me Aunty Killer. Not that I kill them but they’re normally very nice to me. Good Fortune, Il Padrino, Fruit Grocer and even Joy Cafe today!


N DAMNNN finals started today with structural analysis! So much to write so little time! Lets see what happens next for hydraulics! Time to nerd!!
