I'm not the kind of person who wakes up early and can have breakfast at the hotel on time, but even I can wake up on time, I'm not the person who teats breakfast naturally but for here I have to do it! :P I ate a lot as much as I can because I don't want to get out of Laguna to find a food and I don't want to pay that unfair price here. I can understand the expensive price of food if the food is good to be expensive but if it is just Pad Thai or stir fried vegetable, it shouldn't be 500THB per dish!
Today we've done nothing again, just stayed in the room, read my books "the Kite runner". We had the ticket of the marathon dinner party at 5-8PM. Ale got the ticket for free because he joined the marathon but he doesn't want to go there alone so I joined him but for me wasn't free, I had to buy the ticket.
Anyway Ale and I met a new friend. We took the same flight and stayed in the same hotel but we don't know that she's the runner until the party. She's Thai, her name is Bow. Bow supposed to come with her friend but she got an urgent fight for work at Dubai so Bow had to come alone. Bow loves to run, and this is not her first time for marathon.
By the way, our dinner was good. There are a lot of menus to choose but Ale chose to fill up with all carbohydrate menu. I didn't run so I enjoyed eating everything :D The dinner set up at Laguna Beach resort where is next to the beach so after dinner, nothing to do, people went back to sleep as the marathon was on the next day. Ale, Bow and I had a survey around this hotel. The hotel is good as same as Laguna Phuket Holiday Resort. They have their own beach but this month isn't a season to come to the sea at Andaman. High wave, short beach. We're there just a half an hour and decided to go back to take a rest. Ale and Bow had to wake up at 4.30AM to prepare to run.
Ale's back and tried his T-Shirt that the marathon organization gave the runner, with the number. In 15 minutes he slept. I was still awake, reading "The Kite Runner" until finished (I really love this book!) then slept.....zzzzzzzzzz Goodnight.
p.s. This is a kind of hotel that I looked for when I was at Koh Tao last month!!!!!! :D:D:D:D
