Again for 4 days (for my fifth trip) in Phangan. Can't believe that last year I didn't step on the beach at all. So it's good to do it again now!
Phangan was our target. It's not around full moon nights but we just need to be relax. Planning two weeks before going. Would like to stay at Tong Nai Pan noi beach but they're fully booked, every guesthouse, hotel, resort! What happened?!!
So had to think about where to stay. We don't like Had Rin. Last time we're there for Full moon party, well, it's not for us, we thought. So only one idea was the same place we've been in the last two years, Central Cottage Resort at Tong Nai Pan Yai Beach. They had room, enough for us all!! Wow!
We heading on Friday night, Ale was just arrived Thailand on that day then he had to move again to Phangan.
Don't have any plan for this trip. Just to be relax really. Central Cottage was different from the first time i've been. They re-decorated, rebuilt new houses. i'm glad that they still have those huts I love. And now they have swimming pool!!! oooh.
Tong Nai Pan beach is a quiet beach. They called it "a beach for old people". Anyway we're old so it suits us well. We stayed in the big houses with air con. This is the first time in the last ten years that I stayed in the aircon room on the beach. But as my friends booked for us all so .
I love this beach but this time was like I wasn't ready to travel. Not only couldn't swim but one of my eyes turned red on the last day also. I was like a monster. I saw it in the morning. Everyone was wondering what was happened to me? Me too! After the trip, I met the doctor. He asked me a lot of questions to see what happened. "Did you scratch your eyes?" No. "Did something attack your eyes?" No. "Did you fall down?" No. "Did you drink?" Yes "A lot" Yes. "Ok I know now why!" ... The doctor said the conjunctiva was blew out because there were a lot of pressure in my right eye as I drank too much. !!!!!!! I drank a lot often in the last two years but nothing happened. After I stopped drinking a lot and do it just socially, it happened! And just one eye?!!! Well. The red spot became bigger then fully filled in my right eye. Just be cured three weeks after that. Aww, I don't wanna drink ... no more. Should say thanks Phangan, right? :)
