Birthday Surprises..



It was a big weekend! Special birthday for P and as he had a fancy for Thai food we booked into Long Chim, basement level in the restored State Treasury buildings in the city. Long Chim, adorned with the work of Thai graffiti artists, a small sample above, brings 'Bangkok buzz to the heart of the CBD' along with traditional dishes that renowned Australian chef David Thompson discovered 'during his many years in the Thai capital'. The food was indeed fabulous but even more so were the special guests that flew in for the weekend for dad/granddad's birthday, seen below heading back to Sydney after a hectic 48 hours. First dad and daughter trip away and although my adorable granddaughter had a wonderful time she was looking forward to getting back to mum and little brother 💙 I hope all is well with you, take care and stay safe..

  7. Hello,
    That was a busy time. Congratulations with all birthdays.
    Nice pictures. So sweet to see that girl with the fish above the fire. And so special to see her traveling with her own small suitcase.

    Greetings, Marco

  10. A very happy birthday to P. I had forgotten about David Thompson. I met him once but off hand, I can't remember why, when or where. Something to do with Thailand.
