July 21st, 2012 goes down in my diary as the first night out for my husband and I since the arrival of our little one. We left our son under the care of my in laws. It all turned out well. I felt like crying when I dropped him off. My MIL handled him better than I imagined.
It didn’t feel right at the start but I was slowly at ease shortly after arriving at the reception. I couldn’t help but wonder what my son was up to and needed ample distraction!
He turned to me looking puzzled.
‘What were we doing this time last year?’
‘We were in India, love.’
I couldn’t help but think about our travels so far.
As boyfriend and girlfriend, as husband and wife.
One luggage between the two of us, always checked-in.
A map in one hand, my hand in the other.
Spontaneous decisions on where to go, what to eat.
I remember each trip vividly, right up to the babymoon in Koh Samui.
I will miss it.
Traveling is going to be a lot different now. We both agree that it’s time to start making memories with the new addition to our family. After all, good things are meant to be shared.
A quiet Saturday night in Bangsar.
In Penang, I send the indian boy to order cause I speak neither Hokkien nor Mandarin. I do the same in Singapore too. Tsk! Shame shame.
Dim sum on a lovely Sunday morning in Penang. These prawn & fish dumplings are a must have.

I can never get enough of Thai food. Since our trip to Krabi over a month ago, our taste buds crave kieffer lime and lemon grass tingles. We usually head to Viccuda for a tom yam fix but of late, the service there has deteriorated, a very long wait for food and portions have reduced significantly.
After a good workout at the gym, we decided it was time to treat ourselves at My Elephant.
For more information on what we ate, please see Praveen’s review.
I always find dining most pleasurable in the presence of friendly restaurant staff. The waiters and waitress at My Elephant were pleasant despite being extremely busy. We were seated immediately as we arrived early and food was served no more than 10 minutes after ordering.
I really enjoyed our meal and would definitely return soon.
