Here we go!


Another big meet up for me this year was set up by TBdarkinvader143 (JOE) from Philippines. I wasn't sure if I can join them so I put my name on a maybe list. Also at the second half of this year I hardly had time to log in travbuddy so I didn't know what was going on? Then again, one month before the due date I knew that I could join so I showed up again to say yes and saw that it was about 32 people would come for this party already. Wow. A huge party really! Too bad that dodge  (Thai TB who helped Joe Organized this) can't join. I showed up at Hippied Hi Bar on Kaosarn Road with Jane (my ex co-workers) from Philippines.
Cheers to all
We went to the second floor of this pub as Dodge booked for us and saw that area was full so I asked the waiters to see if any tables were for us. The waiter said "All tables here are for travbuddy members" OOoh...

Joe turned and said Hi, to confirm me that you're in the right place haha. It was the first time that I joined Travbuddy meetup with a lot of people. Usually from 1-20. This time was about 32 and everyone came. I can say that I didn't know the name of them all and they don't know my name too. I was inactive before the meet up while the others were more active because most of them will go to Phangan Island for full moon party during New year time. Joe told me that most of them knew each other as they've talked a lot on website  about party here and at phangan island. So I just had a conversation with people who were in the same table ; JOE, MARIUS, JODY and her companion, MARK, ANDY, ANNA, MELLISSA, EDWARD, MICKEY, BOMMIE, DEL, RYAN.
Cheers!
But there are the other half that i haven't had a chance to talk to them - but the party was fun anyway :)

We waited until everyone showed up then moved to Gazebo where had a space for 32 people without making a reservation. It was too noisy as the band started playing music then two little cute girls from Thailand (TB Mickey and TB Bommie) asked us to move to the dancing room. I had a TRavbuddy meet up two times here but we never get inside the dancing room. If you love to dance, you'll like it. I don't dance since 5 years ago (I think) so I was just drinking and enjoying watching them. This time some of us had left because they had to wake up early to leave Bangkok on the next morning while the others chose to sit outside.

We can't smoke in the dancing room and we can't talk smoothly because the music was loud.
Hmmm you'll be famous/rich/and have a great life after you have this 5 rows tattoo! :D
I went out to smoke, Jane followed me then a new friend TB Marius joined us. Almost midnight the others came out. Mickey and Bommie asked to leave to the Club, another nice club. Joe told us that some of them wanted to go to Silom. I stayed for a half and hour then we said bye. We told Marius + Joe that we'd meet again tomorrow (x'mas day) in a quiet place that we can talk better but the next morning I got a call from my parents to have dinner with them on x'mas day. Then my battery was dead. I can't text Joe so I wrote him on travbuddy and to say sorry to him and Marius and maybe the others who wanted to meet again too. But I think Joe doesn't receive my message on Travbuddy (as maybe he can't check it). He texted me on my mobile about 6.30pm to have dinner with the others. I just got a charger again when I was at my parents' house so I answered him that I can't join. Hope you don't hate me Joe and Marius!!!!! :D

Now I think some of them are going to move to Phangan island. Joe told me it'll be about 200+ TBs there. Wow! Have fun everyone. Hope you like Thailand and enjoy at the full moon party. Merry x'mas and Happy New year to you all! And big thanks again to Joe who set up this meet up! It was fun! :)
