Khao Lak Beach
The afternoon smoothies
Blue(ish) sky, beach, infinity pool and swim up bar......life is tough ️ (that's the boys in the middle)
Third and last dish - Pineapple Thai Fried Rice 😀
Second dish - Thai chicken and cashew nut. My fav
First dish we cooked - Vegetarian Thai Spring Rolls. YUM!
Cooking class tour of the Wet Markets. It is always an eye opener. Ben spent the whole time holding his nose.
Ok..... I went into this massage parlor and asked for a coconut oil leg massage. I'm always a little nervous to ask for anything else. . I took off my shoes and waited in the leg massage chairs. The male owner looked at me and shook his head and said 'No, no on bed'. The beds had the curtains down for some privacy. But there where still gaps. I thought 'Ok I get to lay down for this leg massage'. So I make myself comfy and lay down. The massage lady comes in, looks at me and shakes her head saying 'Clothes off, clothes off'. Then proceeds to pull off my top and points to my shorts. Then she undoes my bra! Ummmm ok I thought 'we have lost something in translation here but I can do this'. Then just as I'm unbuttoning my shorts (nice of her to let me do this part) I remembered 'Oh crap!! I have my most comfy granny panties on!!! Crap crap crap!!!'. I was standing there topless In front of the massage lady who had nicely put a peg on the curtain so the whole world could not see me in all my glory. I whipped my shorts off said to myself 'What the hell!! Let's do this!!!' As I lay down I can hear a man on the bed next to me snoring.....hehe! OH MY GOODNESS it was the best massage I have ever had - 60 minutes for 500 baht ($20). The massage lady did giggle at my granny panties though
