Haven't slept on the night before the trip coz i was excited about the donation and eating :)
After i realized that i have done lots of bad thing in my life (haha actually not that bad), it should be the best time to do something good for .. someone.
Friends were ageed so we chose to visit Wassanawate retirement community and senior housing in Ayutthaya. Heard that here needs help. Ok, gooooooooo.
8 people with 2 cars. Two couples and odd-four. Go go go!
Was a longggg trip, even Ayutthaya is far from bangkok just 1 and a half hour but we took 3.
We went straight on to Singburi province which is next to Ayutthaya to have lunch first at Tong shoop Restaurant. A five star restaurant in Thailand. For lobsters!! :D Well, actually it's not a lobster coz lobster comes from the sea but this is a biggest river shrimp. (sorry i don't know how to call it right :P) Very, hungry! I heard my stomache cried when the waiter took a big dish of roasted shrimp passed by!! :O
Twenty minutes later we got a table. As we're really hungry so we ordered 11 menus :D One of them is the favorite, yes roasted big river shrimp. We already prepared to pay for this coz we knew it's expensive (for Thai). 300 baht per each. (Few years ago just 250bt.
After the big shrimps stood in front of me! Woooooooow!!!! Can't do anything. Shrimpmania!! It's as big as a palm, tight, wooooow. I really love the head, the best part of it. When i was young, i didn't eat it but dad told me that it'll make you smart! lol ok ok then i tried and i really looooooove it! :) With this in my hand, i could die now.
Time to enjoy it! Haha, you are mine now, my sweetheart, shrimp! You and me will become one in my stomache hoho!! :D lol If you were there at that moment, you wouldn't hear even just single word from us because we're really concentrate with our beloved shrimp lol After done the first one, my friends asked to have some more? .
Some of places have put a tin in their head to make it get more weight. That's the way to cheat the customer. But here wasn't. Real shrimpppp!!! :D
Then tom-yam-goong came, mara-pad-kai came. Really enjoy. Waiting for the rest but it doesn't come. The restaurant had many people at that time so the food served soooo late. We understood but not for 2 hours like this, yeah, they forgot us.
I went outside while friends were waiting for the food, to enjoy the shops out there. People sells fishes, food and lottos! I met the owner of the restaurant so had a chat. He opens this one for more than 20 years. The restaurant is the same size as in the past but the bigger is his house. Make money a lot from this carreer, hah? I came back a half an hour later, food isn't come yet and my friends wanted to check.
That lunch cost about 5000 baht!! lol With only 4 menus, imagine how much it cost if what we ordered has served us all!! :D
Ok, hunger has gone. Now it's time to win the loneliness!!
