Wow! I gotta say, Siem Reap's "Little Italy" located in Alley West has just over-delivered on a salad. Not only does it look great on the plate, it tasted even better! Several different cheeses (including taleggio cheese, what a treat!), fresh juicy apple, nuts, croutons, leaves and chicken - all with a french mustard dressing and fresh warm bread roll. YUMMY!
 
 
Not content at just sitting at the bar, "Patch" decides to wear Victoria's handbag too. Very cute - except Patch is a boy! ;-) 
And while we're with Patch, here's a couple more of the cute little one fast asleep! Soooo adorable!
 
 
Charles Nathaniel Watkins I -  better known as Charlie - has had a hard day miaowing at everything that moves (and other items that don't), so he's decided to take a nap on my lap. Perhaps he's trying to lull the gecko on my tshirt into a false sense of security!
 
 
Tonight is the birthhday of good friend, Mark - and a middling-to-big birthday at that. 

A quirky Irishman who loves a drink, singsong and playing air guitar (when he's not being a serious teacher), it proved to be quite a night - even though I could only drink water all night because of my dengue recovery! 

A highlight of the night was his singing and dancing to several of Queen's greatest hits (the evidence has been destroyed, don't worry Mark)!
 
 
So Beezebubba aka Skeletor has given birth to her newest litter of kittens in our washing basket, and they are ADORABLE! After a few days, she moved them into a giant vase to hide them - possibly because the previous litter of kittens were curious. We can now pick them up and they are keen for affection. Check out some of the best Photos below!
 
 
Tonight, we sadly waved goodbye to 2 good friends - Shaelinn and Jake. However, the great news is that they are from Pittsburgh, which isn't actually that far from Toronto, so we'll hopefully hook up later in the year! :-)

Shaelinn & Jake - fun down to earth "normal" people. You will be missed guys.

And thanks to the larger than life Roman for popping up at the most unexpected time too ;-)
 
 
Today is a particularly odd day. Yes, we changed the cat food brand (Lucky Mall had run out of the usual one), but could this really be the reason for these very cool poses being struck up by our gorgeous resident cats?! Some of them look almost human and dare I say, posed for the camera! Although "Red" is obviously dreaming of being a superhero... ;-)
 
 
Amazing, one of the cats has again decided to look for their adopted "daddy" and followed Vix back to the hotel! I'm feeling particularly poorly today thanks to my ongoing dengue fever recovery, so this is a lovely surprise as I get to have a snuggle with them before they get taken back!

Having sneaked in, Tapas is looking around to make sure everything is "how it should be"...

... before deciding the bed next to me is the best place to rest...

...and quickly falling into a deep sleep. Look at the face of satisfaction! :-)
 
 
The not so little kittens are now really starting to come out of their shells... the below is one of my favourite photos as Vix is singing a song and as Tigger decides to join in!
 
 
Wowser - I don't think I've ever felt so ill! Turns out it wasn't (just) a hangover, rather I had been bitten by a nasty little mosquito who gave me a serious bout of denge fever! After waving goodbye to Todd and leaving The Sun, I felt steadily worse to the point where I had to shut myself into the bedroom with an eye mask and earplugs. 

Think of the worst migrane you've ever had combined with the worst 'flu as well. As my temperature spiked, so did the headaches.

Eventually Vix made me see a doctor who confirmed our fears, and between her and our chef I was literally carried across the road to a boutique hotel (Soria Moria) so I could sleep in freezing aircon - just so I could lower my temperature.

There will be no posts for a while now, as I recover.
