B: Let's get out of here- next round's mine.
(walk across the street and order a few Tiger's)
Ging: Hmm. Look at that, it's 10 to 4.
B: 10 to 4?! We're taking these to go.
This city, does not sleep. As a confidant of B once said- this place is like Vegas on acid with ladyboys. Agreed.
Thursday was our last day in Thailand, so we knocked a few things off the list- morning sun session at the beach. You can rent chairs and umbrellas for THB100 each. A steal of a deal, mainly for the umbrella, as the day goes on the sun can be a killer. I also (finally!) got to practice my newly formed frisbee skills as taught to me by Ming in Hawaii over Christmas. There was a lot of flailing and some near misses on frisbee casualties- but we made it work.
We took a team time out in the afternoon, as the Ging and B wanted to get massages and I went out for a shop. Upon reuniting, the girls reminded me of how you get "tossed around a little" during Thai massage. B said to me "the girl started getting a little rough and I thought- I bet Ging has no idea this is supposed to be happening." Too funny.
We made reservations at White Box for dinner. The restaurant is a THB500 taxi ride from the Patong Area, at Kalim Beach. The restaurant is quite literally a white box on the beach, with a deco-mod rooftop patio, where we were able to enjoy the sunset before dinner. White Box is hands down the best meal we have had on our travels thus far. To start I enjoyed the proscuitto wrapped mango and mozzarella, while Ging had the duo of spicy salads and B enjoyed the pan fried rock lobster- all were fantastic. For mains, the girls had red tuna while I enjoyed a spicy green seafood curry. The sound of the ocean in the background, we reminisced about the weeks prior over great food and good wine- exactly the way we wanted to.
The next event was the Simon Cabaret (THB900). I am not sure how to categorize this, other than Ashlee Simpson dressed as Big Bird on SNL- lots of feathers and terrible lip syncing. But it was an absolute treat to try and guess which were "she's" and which were "he's", and the costumes were beautiful (much nicer than Big Bird). I would recommend this as an excursion- even for you skeptic conservative boyfriends/husbands/brothers/fathers. You are sure to get a laugh out of it... But grab a cocktail first.
The night was rounded out at Seductions on Bang La (after a weak pit stop at Tai Pan). Seductions has no cover for ladies, and a mostly foreigner crowd and three different dance floors. We threw it down with some rowdy travelers until... Well you read how it ended. This city never sleeps- and sitting in the airport waiting to head back to Singapore- we wish we could have had a few more hours in bed...
