Pad Thai and Paddling at Karon Beach

Keeping up with Kulsum

The island of Phuket has a grand total of 36 beautiful beaches, all with soft, white sand and clear, blue sea. Ranging from beaches with restaurants, bars and buzzing nightlife to hidden spots offering ultimate seclusion, there is something to suit everyone. We opted for a beach that presented the best of both worlds: Karon Beach. This is one of Phuket‘s more popular beaches but is big enough that it never feels crowded.

To get to Karon Beach we took the local blue bus from Phuket Town. This is a great option costing only about 20 Baht (~£0.50). The journey took around 40 minutes and dropped us offjust in time for lunch.

A major factor in our decision to visit Karon was The Pad Thai Shop; a local, modest restaurant rumoured to serve the best pad thai in Phuket,and maybe even the world!

The kitchen…

Words matter


Words matter

“Who is going to guard us?”  This is deer hunting weekend in Wisconsin.  Our oldest daughter and my husband go hunting and my role is to babysit.  The hunters were going out the door and the 4 and 8-year-old were up and playing.  I was still getting dressed for the day.  My sister and our dog were still asleep. The grandkids were playing in the front room and asked their mom as she was heading out the door “Who is going to guard us?”

Words matter. Maybe a 4 and 8-year-old need guarding or a referee rather than a babysitter!  I remember asking one of the about their “Child care” and their response was “We do to Day care.  We are cared for during the day while mom and dad are at work.”  Words matter.  One must be precise when you are talking to children.  They are concrete…

Letter never sent…

Cyranny's cove

Words unspoken,

feelings never admitted,

bad timing, perhaps.

Confessions carefully laid

kept like a treasure, precious

yet a secret that might not get to be told…

Love wrapped in a perfect letter

never sent, waiting for a chance

meeting again, maybe, someday.

Movie Review: Justice League

The Pink Herald's Blog

Let me premise this review with I am not a comic-reading individual.  My knowledge of the Justice League characters come from Saturday morning cartoons (35+ years ago) and various movies that I have seen over the years.

That being said, last night I took my 11-year old daughter to see the Justice League movie.  It wasn’t a movie I would have gone to on my own.  I’ve never been a comic book fan or even cared about the different aspects of the progression of say, Superman or Batman.

Without having multiple backstories, character knowledge or development, we enjoyed the movie.  I won’t go into too many details, as I won’t be a spoiler to those who have yet to see the movie.

I would actually give the movie 4 out of 5 stars.  Hold your horses comic lovers.  My rating is based on the following criteria:  My 11-year old LOVED…
