Next Destination: Orlando Florida

I never dreamed of going to Disneyland but my sweet husband surprised me by securing 2 tickets for my 40th birthday. So we went and had fun. I thought it was a good way of saying goodbye to the younger half of my life.

My daughters were more excited to hear that we were actually in Disneyland when we called them. They thought we were only on a business trip to Hong Kong. I thought so, too. But life is indeed full of surprises!

Hopefully, we'll be able to take the girls with us so they also get to meet Belle and Aurora, and other Disney characters on our next trip. This time I would not be surprised if I found myself in Disney World in Orlando Florida. Aside from the fact that I have friends and relatives to visit there, I found out via Facebook that there are lots of things to do in Florida. So that's not an odd thing to start thinking about it now and checking Orlando Hotels for our future accommodation. Dreaming is a good thing!

While waiting to get to our next destination, let me share some photos from our trip to Disneyland Resort in Hong Kong.


The Yummiest Cheesecake

I was glad when I found a place to enjoy a slice of yummy blueberry cheesecake without spending much. Though it's a favorite, I seldom have it because I haven't tried making it by myself, and it is not always affordable. So we ordered a slice the last time our family went out for dinner. A slice was rich enough to satisfy the cravings of four of us. It's not as good as Secret Recipe's in Malaysia but after some time of not having a cheesecake here in Thailand, I thought it was the yummiest :-)

I wonder how cheesecakes taste in Greece as it is said that the earliest attested mention of a cheesecake is by a Greek physician who wrote a book on the art of making cheesecakes. It's been a popular dessert in Ancient Greece before the Romans adopted it with the conquest of Greece.[Source: Wikipedia]

Nowadays, there are many different varieties of cheesecakes around the world. Baked or unbaked. Sweetened by sugar and flavored or topped by fruits. The presentation differs, too. But however it is done or presented, I would enjoy it all the same!

One-Stop Shopping Around the World

Terminal 21 is the newest tourist destination in Bangkok. It's big. It's modern. And it's a big hit!

A view from one of it's glass wall on the 3rd floor.
Terminal 21, an "airport-shopping" themed gigantic mall is conveniently located at the heart of Asoke-Sukhumvit. So if you're in Bangkok  and you feel like you want to be in many places with your limited time, come to Terminal 21 and it takes to you the street market of Tokyo, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, London, Istanbul, Hollywood and the Carribean.
