Well itâ€™s done now â€“ we are engaged. Team wanted the smaller diamond for the engagement butÂ I plan to have his wedding ring match mine with the larger diamond.Â Â No plans yet for a actual weddingÂ – no gay marriages here in Thailand â€“ just hoping they pass the Civil Partnership Law soon so we can make it official..
Just got a new smart TV and enjoying many movies together at home and getting our mutual calendar setup.Â So many things to do â€“ especially to plan the future, trips, things we need and want.Â And here is a shot of his first load of bread made at home. If life together goes and taste as good as the bread came out then we should have a great future.
Just got back from BKK and the second operation for the blocked left kidney artery â€“ 74,000 Baht this time â€“ so far the total bill for 2 stents comes to 169,000 Baht = $4694. Feeling great â€“ scheduled for check up and blood tests to see if everything is going OK next week, should know how well the kidneys are doing then.
Remember that BKK Hospital in Pattaya wanted 1,000,000 Baht for the same thing. —— Please, if you come to Thailand for a medical vacation be sure and check out the Govâ€™t teaching and training hospitals first â€“ Sriphat in Chiang Mai and Sririaj in BKK . Great service, pricing and quality.
Iâ€™ll post more and some photos taken on the trip later.
You may have noticed the new heading for the blog â€“ Meet Teamnoi (TinTin) my better half.Â Â Â TinTin and I will be traveling around Thailand and showing you the best spots to visit when you come here to Thailand.
What a wonderful guy â€“ full of spirit and adventure, presently working on his Masters of Toxicology at a local teaching hospital and he also holds a Bachelorâ€™s degree in chemistry from CMU.Â Â He loves traveling, cooking, photography and meeting new people and challenges.Â I can go on and on.
He will be going with me to BKK for the next operation on the 11th for the left blocked kidney artery and hopefully be able to enjoy a brief vacation in Pattaya before we come back.
As you may be able to tell â€“ I am extremely happy and excited about our new life together.Â I know you will find the new articles and photos of our trips around Thailand together more colorful and exciting â€“ what else could be expected with such a lovely and charming companion.Â I hope to get him to write some of the new posts adding his look and feel to the Blog.
