True Love Cafe (Neverland Siberians Husky Cafe) Bangkok

Hubb been wanna go this husky cafe long ago and finally this trip we make it happen.. 
It's amazing! 
True love cafe was one of the main reason why I visited Bangkok this time round 
(yes, as you all know, this was my third time in Bangkok.)
I read online the cafe have different kinds of set menu with different price.. Not sure is it because is festive season or is it we went to the last slot of the day, we are being offer a standard menu which is 1 cake + 1 drink for 350baht which include the entry fee to take interact with all the Huskies..

It's a pretty small cafe so the seats is limited. 
Lucky enough we gotten a place as we didn't make any reservation.. Please do if you are travelling in group as I think they got limited the amount of ppl every slot ..
so beside the desserts, we decided to order the calamari and fries to munch..
JinJa Tam Chiak!

Recently fall in love with Chamomile tea.. 
Together with the ice-cream cake(I think it because we are the last group, we only left with ice cream cake..)
It tasted normal berry normal but it pretty yummylicous... (cause it had been ages since I last ate ice cream.. whoopz)

All customers will be given disposable plastics bag to cover yr feets..
You are not allowed to wear your shoes inside when playing with the Huskies. 
Everyone have to sanitize yr hands before stepping in.. 
It's all for huskies good.. 

the FUN begins... much love!

Psssssssst: I'm actually afraid of dogs ( I'm scared of everything that is not human.. actually human are more scary! well...)

This cafe has a total of 30 huskies. As far as I rem I heard from the owner.. but I read some blog saying 17-24.. Well, this is just a number.. Cause you wun be interact with all dogs.. 
Huskies are divided into 3 groups to avoid overwhelming and tiring the dogs..

The owner with the husky.. Sweet moment lei!
I wish I can get so close with them BUT I'm still quite scare of doggies...

Photo started with Hubb.. 

Isn't he so hannnddsoome...!! 

I mean the husky ar..

Photo overloaded..
This is why I decided to have this separate post cause I have taken tooooo many photos..

Me and Momo

2 photos
Mi with a pool of huskies.. Cannot believe I so scare of dogs rite... 
Aiyo... Photobomb uncle lei... We take how long, he squat there how long... 
*Roll eyes many times*
Manage to crop photobomb uncle away.. Did u see his disposal slipper?? 

Hubb, why did you sit so far away?? I think you look more scare than me wor.. 

Surprisingly, I keep going closer and closer to the huskies.. But I definitely dun dare to hugg or carry(referring to Momo only.. you are not suppose to carry any of the husky..)

Photos overloaded!!
Finally.. well.. this is not all lei.. But I cannot simply upload the whole album here ba.. hahaha

My brother in law and his gf, O..
THE look alike couple...!!

There are three enclosures to separate different gangs..
Every gang has their head and every head wanna lead the whole brunch..
They are not that fierce la..

Oh ya.. if you feeling you wanna step out or re-enter the area, please inform the staff before leaving the area as all the huskies will dash over..
You dun wan to run over the place just to catch one back..

Well, all rules and regulation will be told right before we enter the area..

It's so fluffy I gonna die!!!

Actually 1.5 hrs is kanna long for mi, I think my bil and his gf and many others need more than 1.5 hrs ba... 
Or maybe it due to too many ppl and all wanna take selfies with the huskies so you have to wait and wait, wait till sianz lor.. Coz many juz can't stop snapping.. Well, I dun mind la... If I really do, I already walk over and photo bomb their selfies already.. Whoopz! Okay, say say only la.. I'm not that bad la...

After 1.5 hrs, it's time for the huskies to go back to their nest.. 

Spot Hubb, bil and his gf standing by at the entrance of the huskies nest.. Well, if you wan a best shot, you definitely need to be kiasu abit lah....

Best place is just outside the entrance door (I repeat entrance door not gate ya..) 
One of keeper ask us to move over to another.. Thank you...   

I would definitely recommend this husky cafe to anyone who love dogs (especially Huskies, yes whole bunch of huskies).. 
So if you are visiting Bangkok soon, you have to go this cafe..

Budae Jjigae ~ Korean Army Stew

As you all may had read, I'm going Korea next year March with Hubb.. I had been saying I wanna go Korea for years and finally I managed to persuade Hubb lo..
I had never been to Korea before but I always love to eat Korea food (okay I love food, but who can reject yummy food right in front of you..) 
I think army stew could feel a whole village!! 
Recipe for 4 people
Ingredients (For the broth)
2 tablespoons gochujang (Korean chili paste)
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic ( I used those NTUC ready made minced garlic, it will taste better if you have the time to dice it yrself..)
750ml chicken stock
Add in 1 tablespoon hua diao jiu (chinese cooking wine) if prefer

Ingredients (For the stew)
120g minced beef/pork, pre-marinated with 1 tablespoon of gochujang, 1 teaspoon of sesame oil and some white pepper
1/2 stalk of leek, sliced
1/2 white onion, chopped
2-3 cheese sausages, sliced (personally I love Gourmet brand - sell over at counter at NTUC)
1/2 can luncheon meat, sliced
100g enoki mushrooms
100g silen tofu
100g tteokboki (Korean rice cake)
1 cup kimchi ( For a good flavour to the broth, this is a berry important ingredient)
1-2 packet ramyeon or instant noodles without seasoning (preferably use Korean brand)
1 slice of cheese
Some spring onions for garnish

*For the soup paste, combine the gochujang, sesame oil, garlic and hua diao jiu(if using) in a small bowl. Stir to mix well.

* To make the broth, bring the chicken stock to boil and add in the soup paste. Stir and make sure that the soup paste is fully dissolved into the stock.

* In a shallow pot ( if you prefer to have it simmer while eating, you can use steamboat pot like I do..), arrange all the ingredients for the stew exceptthe ramyeon, cheese & spring onion and set aside.

* Pour the broth into the pot where all the other ingredients are

* Break up the minced meat using a spoon

* Cover the pot with a lid and simmer for 15 minutes till boil

* If using the steamboat style, switch to the lowest and add in ramyeon and let it cook ill your preferred consistency. Add in cheese slice on the top and stir until it fully dissolved within the stew

* Garnish with spring onions
