Day 22 - Looking Like Michael JacksonJanuary 1 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C
Woke up at 9.30am, slightly hungover, but grateful for a full 8 hours sleep. We couldn’t drag ourselves out of bed until 10.30am, then we went all veggie. Not a New Years resolution.
We had breakfast at Happy Veggie next door. I had a standard scrambled eggs, baked beans & toast with jam and an Energising Smoothie, which was effectively a liquid Snickers Bar. Jackie had an iced latte & a spicy hummus sandwich, which tasted like a curry sandwich!!
We then headed to the beach, but half an hour later, we were having a ‘hair of the dog’ in the form of 4 Changs each at the beach shack. Back on the beach for Part 2 of a our sunbathing, I looked at the tube of our sunblock & noticed that it contained whitening properties. Brilliant, we are sunbathing, but bleaching ourselves at the same time. We are going to end up looking like Michael Jackson!!
We had an early bath from sunbathing & returned home for a couple of Hong Thongs on our balcony. We went out to Ni Restaurant for a Massaman curry each, which we had been fantasing about all day. It was nice but not as sensational as the previous night.
The Ni Restaurant owner told me that I drink a lot (2 large bottles of Chang) & also that I’ve had too much sun. Luckily he didn’t know that we had 4 Changs each at lunch & had pre-dinner Hong Thongs. During our conversation he also told us the his wife, the chef, was called Ni and their child was called No!!
After dinner, we got some more cash out & then returned home, where Jackie fell asleep. I listened to some Justin Sullivan podcasts. It was an early night.
