Special thanks to my dear friends, for their presence,
driving all the way from Krabi to hand their gifts to me at home,
for spending priceless moments, filled with happiness & joy with me
and for dragging me out of my nest... Bravo! ;-)
p.s We all laughed at one another as they stepped out of the car upon their arrival,
seeing all of us wearing something black with smart-casual dress-code
without any plan or telepathy! What a coincidence! ;)

As my bank account is very slim, I cannot afford a Ferrari, a yacht, things that glitter & luxurious stuff...to repay their kindness and generosity. However, I only have a rich heart and rich heart-made Chunky Brownie Cheesecake, created from Vodka Cranberry Brownie Chunks, a very special give-away in exchange for their warm visit, thoughtful gifts, hugs, smiles and laughter. Hopefully, they enjoyed my pieces of richness, anyway! ;-)

It was such a lovely day with sunshine, clear blue sky, gentle breeze, laughters, food & drinks and cakes, starting from my place... Later just before noon, we moved to our next station: a cozy retro cafe-bistro in an old-time corner by the river...followed by a coffee/tea break, in Khaolak. The cafe's name is "Hua Tah Bistro" a revamped Sino-Portuguese old house with nostalgic ambiance, free wifi, live music, situated only steps away from my nest.

There are varieties of food (easy home-cooking, Thai style, Japanese, Chinese and Western...with affordable budget. My friends made a big compliment on F&B as well as TOP dessert to drool & die for, namely "Honey Toast", served with a super-sized scoop of vanilla ice-cream, whipped cream, banana & almond slices and dusted with icing sugar! Shhhhh...we 3 could fast-forward the whole toast & co. within 2-3 minutes! Thanks to our efficient & effective dessert stomachs!!! ;)

Café Kantary is my favourite meeting place with friends due to its clean 'n' cozy ambiance with variety of savoury Salé crêpes e.g spinach & cheese, salmon & cheese, tuna, ham & cheese, with or without additional fried egg on top... plus choco-banana, mixed berries Sucré crêpes....and irresistible cheesecakes, cookies, waffles, Gelato and assorted macaroon.... for your sweet teeth! :)

So here we go...Eat eat eat, Laugh laugh laugh and Eat eat eat again...
