WOW, I am young and only been over seas once, where i ran into Chet and the knockoutbar.
there some dramas during our trip but absolutley no regrets simply because of meeting him, his friends family and pretty much the whole village behind the resort. To this day I understand that i live in Australia and have a quality of life people around the world can only dream of, but the experience of going to another country, meeting the locals, playing a simple game of football, smiling, laughing just having a good time nothing can really come close. I leanrt quite a bit of Thai when I was over there, but even then if you smile laugh and embrace the culture, you are always going to be welcomed. ANYWAY back to the point, my time in phi phi islands was only made as good as it was simpply because of the KNOCKOUT BAR, the snorkelling trip was nothing but incredible, very well informed, very well fed and very pleasant to be around the KNOCKOUT staff all day, all great characters, all great people. The restaurant itself was a bit um, AWESOME, great food, even better if you are willing to try something new! After you finish eating you are always welcomed for another (or 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) more drinks, stay in your chair, watch some football, or even better (if they are not busy) talk to the staff, or the locals to embrace their life, their smiles, their friendliness.
One day soon I will come back to the KNOCKOUT bar, just to re live the beautiful experience, I miss Chet and all his friends and the villagers who welcomed me onto their field to play with them.
I learnt alot off these kind hearted people which i try my best to practice and embrace in my life.
NOTHING BUT GREAT MEMORIES!
