Off We Go, Up The Stairs

You'll be so proud ... I went to gym yesterday. Even tho it was pouring rain (the least gym-motivational type of weather ... cause it'd be so much better to just go home and snuggle up in front of the tv or with a book!) and I was running late (freaking traffic! And what's with the people driving with no lights on when there were sections of highway I was going at like 40km/h because it was raining so hard you could barely see the car in front!). Well anyway, I was proud :)

I do love the rain ... but it's very sad for the boons, they couldn't have their usual grass-time outside, they were stuck inside causing havoc. Lily has now discovered that she can climb the stairs with Coal and boy did they have hours of fun doing that yesterday ;) Here are some photos. But please excuse the lighting, it really wasn't great what with it a) being indoors and b) there being no sunlight streaming in from outside due to the giant storm.

1. Lily almost to the top 2. What my camera thinks a bunny jumping up stairs looks like - was too hysterical not to post :)

3. Coaly-boy in his usual pose (in front of Singha, my Thai Lion) 4. The best shot I managed to get of the two of them together in front of Singha (they tend not to keep still which is a real problem in bad lighting!), see how big Lily has gotten!

Other than that, Varen got home late ... but picked up some dinner from Simply Asia. I had their Chicken Satay, which was no where near as delicious as Cranks ... the chicken pieces were measly and practically glue to the stick and pretty close to rock hard. Their peanut sauce is also nothing to write home about. But then I had my favourite (in fact the entire reason I have Simply Asia these days), Tom Yum Goong Pla-Muk (that's spicy prawn soup). I love it. You used to be able to get it frozen from PnP and I always had one lurking in my freezer, was quite disappointed whne they stopped stocking it :( But then I discovered that Simply Asia offered the closest thing I've found to it (although they're more stingy with their prawns). There's nothing better!

Oooh... I love the corn fritter things from Simply Asia. Yum!

Your bunnies are too sweet. I'm amazed that they can climb stairs - pretty impressive.

The first Thai dish I tried was Tom Yum Goong Pla Muk and it's been my favourite ever since... I think, Woolies stocks a canned version of the broth and then you can add your prawns, etc. I think I'll have that for lunch today :)

Plus, your bunny posts are making me want to get one of my own :)

I really like the Satay Chicken from Kai Thai as well.

Still can't believe Coal is a girl now!

@tamara - haven't tried those before ... next time perhaps.

@nielfa - Oooh, may have to try the Woolies one, although my dad just sent me his recipe in reply to this post :) haha. I'd recommend a bunny pet to anyone!

@louisa - haven't been to Kai Thai in ages ... hmmm. Hahahahaha, I know, me either!

@angel - aren't they just :)
