I come to think ...

I was thinking about to stay here for one more week .. but I can't because of work (freelance job).

I was thinking about what to do in the future .. and I still don't find the answer because I don't do anything new thing yet.

I was thinking about how I would get the job at world writer ... well, later the beach gave me this! wahoo!

I was thinking about would I die sooner or later by alcohol and cigarette ... must be sooner if I continue doing the same habit!

I was thinking about the long distance relationship ... which still works! I love that ...

I was thinking about everything then looked at the sky, the sea and the stars upon my head .. and stopped thinking to drink again .
New friends. Phil, Joe, Gemma and Pookie.
..

Three bottles of Singha Beer (for me) plus 4 bottles of Sangsom (Thai rum) (for two people) (Jane did not drink). Then we got a company. They are English, three people. They were there since yesterday. We're only on Thai group on this beach and at that time only two tables left at the bar. Our table and their table. So Joe was the one who came to us and asked to join. Sure! Gemma and Phil are a couple from England. They travelled around SEA for months and had only 9 days left so they came to Phangan Island and they met Joe, English-Italian, on the bus so they became three. It's funny that they gossip us. Haha. They tried to think that Aod is a boyfriend of me or Jane then they thought no, Aod is Gay. Hahaha ... Anyway, we told them that we're all friends - just friends - and Aod isn't Gay.
I love this view
Hope no one's disappointed? ;)

They wonder why we spoke English to each other, had to tell them that because of Jane as she's a Filipino. After talked, they were surprised that we can speak English better than they thought. Yes, not every Thais can speak English but I can say now most of Thai people can and better than us but on the street maybe not much as the tuk tuk driver, shop sellers, so sometimes is difficult to communicate with them. So they told me to teach some Thai words like "expensive" "not spicy" "delicious" just in case :)

I asked them why they chose this beach to stay, Gemma answered that they love the quiet place to relax and someone recommended them here and they love it because it's quiet. They don't want to go to the crowded beach as Had Rin and they don't need a Full Moon party.
:D We had taken many shots to get this one hahahahaha
I love her thought. Not only about this but after we shared more I know that they are different from people I know. Some of my colleagues are English who has the same age as them but their thoughts are quite different from these three people. Gemma and Phil are younger than us but their thought is free and they are here to learn not to take. They respect the culture, the place, the people but a few people I know at work do not. I was glad to meet them.  For Joe, I don't have to compare. He's older than us and he is kind enough to make friends. It's always good to meet new people. This is not a meet up that we can plan to go to meet and we know who we will meet but this you will never know who will you meet on the street, on the beach or anywhere you go.
not crowded at all
And it's a luck if you meet people who talk about the same thing and look at the same way.

It's about 2am, I think. Only our bar was opened then one lady boy showed up from nowhere. We didn't notice when she came but she joined us and sang a song. We loved it as it was funny - she came from where?! What? It's all dark but she walked alone to here? Then she looked at Joe then passed to Phil. We were thinking what was in her mind? After Gemma said bye to bed, the lady boy told us "I come to eat a boy!" And looked at Phil with a hungry way. Hahahaha ... Anyway she was fun, and Phil doesn't allow her to do it as well. Her name is Pookie.

In the morning Aod told us that tomorrow he wanted to go to another beach just to have a look for one day trip.
the bar at night
He never came here before, so does Jane so they wanted to see more. But after met Joe, Gemma and Phil. I went to bed at 4, Aod at 5 and Jane at 6am. No wonder why we're all still here in the next morning - Hungover!

...........................

For me just to sit - stay still - look at the sea in front of me and free my mind are good enough but I don't know if Jane and Aod like the same? I always come to Phangan when I want to take a break .. so I don't want to make any move or do any adventurous thing or any other things but concentrate on the beach and drink there. I'm lazy? :) I bought another hammock which was doesn't fit for this bungalow but can tied it up at last. Love this moment.  Today we're hungover. We're like a zombie.
our dinner
I wanted to jump into the sea but I was on a period so better don't make it become a red sea, but was horrible really. Gemma, Phil and Joe were hungover too but later we drank again together with the other two more, Tony and Laura, from Nashville, USA. They stayed in another bungalow but came to have dinner here. They sat next to us and they wondered why we spoke English as no one can notice that Jane is a Filipino (again!). 

So that night, we drank together. Laura is beautiful. Tony looks like Richard Gere. What a nice couple! It was another lovely day. And our mini party was fun. Everyone can talk to anyone -  not too many people to remember the name of them. I love this. It's good and everyone will be in your memory last longer.
