I am here but the PC is still not cooperating

I am so sorry to have missed so many postings.   It 's already end of June.     My PC desktop is still under water with all the photos locked up that I need to recover.   My first generation Pentium III with 256 MB RAM just cannot keep up with all the photo editing I was doing.     On the other hand, I have tested a few recipes as well as baked breads "my way" -- that means my own recipe that I would love to share with my family and friends.    I baked a loaf, and it filled the house with that wonderful aroma of "fresh bread is baking".     I also got another batch going right now.     I am hoping for the best for my desktop PC to recover.     In the meantime, I want to thank all the visitors for stopping by and also for joining my site.     As I stated before, if you don't see the recipe (because I've already used up my spare time editing the photos and uploading the photos), and you would like a copy of the recipe, please let me know.   I will post it as soon as I can.   If there is no request, I figure you guesstimated it from the photos.    If the recipe is owned by another blogger, I will refer you to their site(s).     If the recipe is mine, I am more than happy to share. 
Until my PC's happy recovery, keep-on cooking!

Haunted by Another PC Problem

I have been haunted by PC crash.   Until then, I won't be able to post blog.   It's likely a time for a new model - PC or MAC?   or iPAD?   or ????   kind of nice though not touching any computer for two weeks...   But miss all the Food Blog adventures that everyone is having.
Till my PC recovers, then, have a great Food adventure.

Tuk Tuk Thai - knock, knock ...

Tuk Tuk Thai was an interesting Thai restaurant with pretty decors.     It's been opened in our neighborhood for a few years now.   Out of curiosity, we visited the restaurant.    We ordered the usual 'must' for visiting the authentic restaurant - Tom Yum Goong soup as the tester.    We ordered everything at THAI spicy.     The soup was spicy hot and tasted good.   The spicy fried fish - Pla Nam Pla Wan  was bit disappointing, it's suppose to be the Orange Roughy - deep fried topped with a sweet and spicy tamarind sauce.     But I was very sure that it tasted like catfish.    I have eaten catfish many times before to know the difference.    Perhaps they decided to serve us the Pri Tak Oan instead - fresh deep fired catfish with young pepper corn and fresh basil.... but naaa, it has tamarind sauce, so, I think they decided to switch on the fish - unannounced.       Not so sure about the pineapple used for the Pineapple fried rice - fresh or reused?     Oh well, least the soup was good.    But would have enjoyed it more if the fish tasted like orange roughy.
