Finally ..we are here

Hi all

Just thought I will do daily updates here instead. But I will also post at the countdown thread!!!

Had a quick walk to the beach ( beach bar actually) and a quick mojito. The sea is very rough and the RED FLAGS are up.

Friend pick up us for dinner for Issan food ( on the ring road) the restaurant called " mod yim" which mean " smiley ants" the food was delicious, for 5 people food and drinks came to 1085 there were 6 dishes, rice, 2 coke and 2 large Chang beer and mixer for Whisky for our friends.

Master 15 want to get some movie so off we went to chaweng central. OMG where are the people come from. I think the party already started for some. I have never experience the traffics jam in koh Samui like this ever. Normally the 5 mins journey now it take longer than 25 mins. However once the taxi ( we caught taxi back to hotel ) approaching south chaweng beach they are quite different zone altogether.

Want to know more just ask :-)

Hi Pea, the food at Mod Yim sounds delicious.

I mean if the ants are smiling, then how could it not be.

Pea, you lucky, lucky thing!

Enjoy your TA meet up, and give Mossy a hug - I have asked her via Facebook to give you my best.

Have fun, we have 59 days to go. Never have done NYE in Samui, but arrived on 2nd and the sea on South Chaweng is always very rough, so I normally get the boogey boards out, but forget to change from a bikini to full swimming costume, so sorry if any of you have accidently seen my white bits.

Enjoy, expect lots of reports . . . . please??

Good Morning every one :-)

Thanks for the wishes. We will defiantly will enjoy ourselves even though the weather might be a it dodgy ( at the moment is 8.47am).

Woke up with the sounds of heavy rains but at the moment outside look pretty promising with the sun shining through ( a bit ) on my right side ( south towards Lamai). From my balcony usually this time of the day i can see the beach full with an empty sun lounges but with the towels over to mark's their territory. But not today not a single soul on the beach. The beach look very short as the tide very high. Every one that love surfing will be in heaven.

After breakfast if is not rain will go and checkout the new hotel down the road.
