Wat prasing. The big buddha!

We've left Sukhothai almost in the night. I don't remember where were we?! Really? Short memory I have! I took about two hours to remind myself what we're doing after Sukhothai?! I think maybe we went to see some temples around. Or we just drove around? I don't know ... anyway after we finished that, we drove to Singburi. Stopped at Wat prasing where has the big buddha inside. Impressive! We stopped there about two hours then we tried to have dinner at Tong Shoop restaurant. It's a famous place in Singburi Province for river shrimp. Big one! (i had it everytime I come here - the pictures are in my Ayuttaya blog). But we were there quite late. And the normal road was closed by the rice mob. We had to go another way.
Sala god.
I called the restaurant, they said they close at 8.30pm. So we were in a hurry to be there before they close. Ale drove too fast. But because the normal road is closed, we had to take another way so we made a u-turn. And it's a quick u-turn then BAM! Car crashed.

We're wrong!

Well, my super driver ... now he made a mistake ... I was panic because i was thinking about how to tell to the car rent shop. But stephane told me that we had an insurance. The credit card we used covers everything. So ok. Ale felt bad, I know. He shouldn't miss it but he did. Anyway he didn't stop driving so fast. Haha because we wanted to eat those shrimps!!!

We arrived at 8.30pm. I didn't remember the way to go to the restaurant. We're lost. We got in to the center of the city. I called the restaurant at 8pm, asking the way.
Sala tree - a lucky one.
The one who picked the line said "sorry we're close". I said "the one before said you close at 8.30pm. Now just 8pm. We're three people, we're hungry and we'll eat a lot and we're here in your city!" So he said "ok, so you can come now".

Me "Could you please tell me an exactly area that your restauant located?"

Him "where are you?

me "here in the city"

him "come to the xxx temple"

me "where is that xxx temple?"

him "i don't believe you don't know xxx temple, we're at this temple"

me "i don't know, could you explain?"

him "how come you don't know? have you ever been here before?"

me "yes many times"

him "but you don't know?"

me "yes, just tell me the way please"

him "Oh, I don't believe it so what did you pass?"

me "aaa restaurant"

him "that's the opposite site, if you come from bangkok, what did you see?"

me "i didn't come from bangkok, i came from sukhothai, i was on the highway, the opposite site of aaa restaurant"

him "how come you don't know xxx temple and how come you don't know what did you pass from bangkok"

me "just explain please, I don't remember and i didn't come this way this time"

him "but you've been here before.
Make a wish then ask if you can lift it up, your wish will come true. Then make the opposite wish and ask if you can lift it up, if yes, you got it! (But you have to use your fourth finger to lift it alone). I did it! And I hope I get it soon!
do you know anything?"

me wtf! "I slept when i've come before, so i don't know"

him "oh, nice, so the drivers must be good, let you sleep and did he remember anything?"

me "yeah they are good but this time not them, they are foreigners this time so they don't know"

him "oh, too nice, foreigners drive for you? and they don't know the way, and you slept?"

me "We want to eat at your restaurant. Just explain please"

him "why don't you know where we are?"

me "if i know it, i don't call you?

him "but why did you sleep?"

me "i call you back, i'll find the way myself. I didn't know the way, I'm like this so what?"

him "no one doesn't know this restaurant"

me "me, i don't know. And this is me. It isn't a joke. And if you don't want to explain, i find my way.
Crashing with another pick-up
And hey, I asked you the way, why don't you just tell me. Why did you have to speak like that to me? I'm your customer. ANd I really don't know. And you did like this to me? You do it to the other also. I'll find out where you are by myself and let's see!"

him "i wonder how don't you know this restaurant, we're famous"

oh fuck!

me "hey ok, i tell you the truth. I'm a journalist. I went there many times. And people took me there , that's why I don't have to remember where is it because people took me there. This time, I come with the other two foreigner jounalists. I recommeneded them to go to your restaurant but if you 're not pleased that we go now, i want to talk to your manager and i will ask him by myself"

then he told me the way - Bastard!
and said "ok, when you're near here, call me again, ok?"

then i hung up!

And called again

Me "it's me again"

him "ahhh, too fast"

me "no, i just call you that I don't go there"

him "why?"

me "and just want to tell you one more thing.
Yummy steaks!
I like this restaurant before, but now know because the way you treat the customers. I am really don't know the way - because i'm not the one that can remember the way but you're trying to make me remember everything but how can i? And you didn't tell me the way, you waste my time but when i said i'm a journalist you're changed! I go there to eat your food and give you money, I didn't ask your food for free. That's why I don't go now. And next time, please be nice to the other customers. Now you do that to me, i'm a journalist, you know what i'm gonna write about you, right? ... "

I didn't finish yet, he hung up!

Wow! What a nice service.

I wanted to call them again but Ale and Stephane told me 'don't' but I was angry! Really.

So I called again and said "FUCK YOU!" and hung up!
Hahahaha i felt better yes!

In thai 'fuck you' is really bad if you speak to people! But it's good for him!

Well, I won't go there again!

They became famous and they did it.

I forgot to call the manager the day after. I want. I will do it tomorrow if i don't forget again! (see? i have a short memory .. sux)!

So we went to the center of the city. Found one steak house, nice. We had dinner there. It's about 11pm at that time. So we decided to stay over night here. There are a few hotels around. We got this one "grand lion". 700THB per night with the big room, big balcony and hot shower. Yes, here!
