Thai Chai – Asian Fusion Meets Tea

It’s been a busy time for me recently, that’s what I’m using as my excuse for a lack of blog posts anyway.  I’ve got a new job (starting on Friday), been fervently house hunting with Gabby, and generally just being highly disorganised.  As good as it is to be busy though, sometimes you just have…
