Oh For Those Red Shoes

Righto, so I know I've been neglecting my blog this morning, but right now I feel as tho I've just been dumped out of a work whirlwind, not unlike Dorothy. Finally I have a free moment (let's hope it lasts the afternoon!) after a crazy meeting-filled morning.

So, I skipped Yoga last night. I know I said I had every intention of going but as the day wore on and my breathing didn't improve, I realised I would just be wasting my money to lie on my back recovering in a hot room :)

So instead I arranged to meet Lady for drinks at 4pm. What a fabulous idea, an afternoon spent outside enjoying a drink and catching up. Which was more than required on my part because I've been feeling very disconnected from her as a friend since she joined Book Club and that's the only time we seem to end up seeing each other these days.

Later DJMike and I had dinner at the Kai Thai Village in Randburg (aargh, web no presence??) - Varen had to work late again :( I've been to the Kai Thai in Montecasino before but hadn't tried this one. I must say the ygo the extra mile with decor, but I still prefer the food at Cranks. The food was good if you like what I call "Western Thai Food" - it's all the creamy curries. Cranks is more Authentic Thai Food. Either way, the food was good, we shared a start platter (always nice to get a little taste of everything) and both had the Prawn Peanang Curry for mains.

It wasn't a late night and I was home in time for Varen to swing by for a goodnight kiss on his way home from the office - well, technically, it's not on his way ...

A good jam-packed evening :)

Yep... I'm so over trying out new thai restaurants because I'm always disappointed... like you say, too creamy and no karma sutra barbie's hanging from the ceiling.

I have a question for you phillygirl - do you ever cook? ;)

phillygirl said...

@msmozi - I know, but sometimes you just gotta remind yourself why we love The Cranks sooo much! To be fair, it was picked mostly because of it's close-to-home factor ;)

@missm - yes ... I refer you back to my previous posts:
1. For Varen's mom even, just last weekend!
2. 23 August I cooked yummy Calamari with veg
3. 22 August I cooked Chicken Roulade
So there :P

Waa waa waa

Somehow I just don't see you as the "stay at home cooking" type ;)

I still love you though!!

phillygirl said...

@missm - well, I may surprise you yet ;)

Are we flirting with each other? *snigger*

Have you tried the crispy duck at Kai Thai? To die for! I don't really like their curries.
Nice blog btw, I've been lurking for a few weeks :)

phillygirl said...

@missm - most definitely not, we have enough of that sort of banter on GT already ;)

@jenty - I must say I have not tried the crispy duck, but since I have an aversion to "meat on the bone", I'm not sure it's up there on my list (although if I do find myself unexpectedly dining at Kai Thai again, I'll keep it in mind). Glad you are enjoying the blog, checked yours out a while back and love the idea & discipline a photo a day must take! And some of those pics are really stunning :)

It's not "on the bone", it's a kinda stir fry rather. Really yum

phillygirl said...

@jenty - oooh, well that immediately bumps it up as a possible ordering option ;) Will keep in mind if there's a next time!
