Thailand - Day Nine

Well this will be the shortest of all the blog posts I’m sure. We have another chill day and we are lucky enough to get some sunshine at least but it doesn’t last long. The rain sets in and we are banished to our sheltered living room to catch up on blog writing and the occasional puzzler. We book ourselves in for 90 minute sport massages for tomorrow as they didn’t have any availability for today. Definitely looking forward to that after our trip to Angthong national park.

Tonight we stay local for some food and find a small restaurant around the corner. We really weren’t expecting much but the food was lovely as was the Mai Tai cocktail to wash it down.

Now when I asked if my chicken in ginger sauce was spicy and she said not I’m not sure if she thought that meant I wanted it spicy or that to her it was not classed as spicy. It certainly warmed me up and gave me a case of the food sweats that’s for sure.

Al tried a penang curry based on a tip from one of our crossfit friends, Kate, and he really enjoyed it along with the deep fried ice cream he had for dessert.

We were going to try an outdoor bath tonight but after about 10 minutes we only had an inch of water in it so that’s probably not going to happen then.

We did however remember that we hadn't set off our loy krathong festival gift from yesterday so we lit the candle and insence and floated it in our pool.

So while this is a short entry I might as well get an updated mojito list:

  1. Virgin mojito at the waterfall, Koh Samui
  2. Shangri-La poolside, Chiang Mai
  3. Riverside restaurant, Chiang Mai
  4. Farmer restaurant, Koh Samui
  5. Saree Samui poolside, Koh Samui
  6. Sali aat market restaurant,Chiang Mai
  7. Dining on the Rocks, Koh Samui
  8. Bucket at Full Moon Party, Koh Phangan
  9. Pre bottled from local shop, Koh Samui

Overall, still very disappointed in the mojitos. Will probably have to try one in Bangkok to get the full set but I’ve had some fantastic other cocktails.
