Starving greyhound as seen on Animal Rescue the other night. You get these turkeys who race the poor dogs then severley neglect them when the can no longer race.  Made me realize were lucky to have the RSPCA in Australia. The other stories were a poor little kitty who had its paw chopped off in a rabbit trap, and a beautiful newborn calf who's mother just passed away, poor little calfy was having trouble drinking milk from a bottle.
is that a huge lizard in the paddle boat or are you just pleased to see me?
this could potentially ruin someones date

Lulu still has all her soft toys in her bedroom – very cute really for an 8 year old.  On Sunday we went to her piano recital.  There were about 10 pianists – she was 4th on and did a very good job of 2 pieces.  It is a good idea to get them to perform early, like they do at their school when they have different grades doing a singing item most Mondays.  The Sunday concert had beginners up to grade 8 pianists who could have performed at the concert hall.  There was one poor Chinese kid, Richard Fu, 8th grade pianist and played amazingly but poor kid had the personality of a dial tone and Mum was hovering around him and I reckon he would practise about 10 hours a day. He had on a white shirt even with the top button done up.

dear God why did you make me black, its so darn hot here in Bangkok. Spotted these little guys hangin out in Lumphini park and really felt for the hot crow.

caught up with the lovely Laith and Kylie on their way from Barcelona through Bangkok to Bali a few weeks ago. Now Laith's back home in Melbs with a huge drawing to show everyone at Kaliman Rawlins today.  This was a size small ice coffee, looked huge...

the MOL croc looks a lot tougher than the lacoste croc, maybe they should meet and hang out for a bit together. Saw this on a passing truck on our way to Central Bangna or somewhere...

Jealousy is an art form in itself here in Thailand. TV is smothered in crazy drama shows. The facial expressions in this clip really warm up towards the end. She's absolutely livered her new fella still has feelings for his old tart. Looks like the clip was filmed at the V64 art studios in Bangkok. I went out there and had a sniff around, the art was a bit smelly but there was some nice ceramics stuff there.

Been loving the romantic tunes of days gone by in Thailand. Taxi drivers here also listen to the old stuff which is nice. Theres a store on the ground floor of MBK Bangkok where you can by all the old records on CD, for 5 bucks. I've bought a few and it helps lul us all to sleep. if you can read Thai
