Got to Hua Hin after another torturous bus journey (8 hours this time) On the plus side, got speaking to a lovely Thai girl called Mam on the bus about herself and myself. She told me she was studying 'US studeis'. I think she wanted to practice her English - must remember to send her a message.
Upon locating the Sukwilai hotel once more, N the girl J saw last year accosted me outside the front door asking me where he was. I tried to explain that I didn't know yet myself as I had just arrived! Thankfully, he saw us from Lucky Luke's and came over while I dropped my stuff off in the room. Feels good to be back in Hua Hin, always had a soft spot for here since I first came. Stayed in Sukwilai for only the one night, as J didn't want to keep bumping into N, despite getting pretty cosy with her in her new bar on the first night!
Couldn't see O or any of the girls from last year, so I asked N and she couldn't tell me where any of them were either, so I messaged O who replied that she is back at her home in Isaan. Had a nice chat with her, though, and she seemd genuinely pleased to speak with me, sespite saying she probably won't come back to HH in time for me to see her. Shame. Also went back to Geronimo's and had some fun with the girls in there (especially J!)
Got speaking to a couple of guys on the beach. One of them, Gary, is with one of the ladies from Lazy Daze and her ladyboy friends. Seems like a good guy and came up with some amusing stuff, especially his surprise free shag after the lady in question repeatedly told him 'No, I love pumpui, I love pumpui'! Got a good massage on the beach from one of the aforementioned ladyboys. Me and J popped in for a drink later and I unfortunately courted a little too much attention from one of the rather large one who massaged me on the beach! Bought he/she a drink as a thank-you for the beach massage, perhaps this is where I went wrong. Another one was shockingly attractive!
Went out another night and got speaking to a guy from Burton-on-Trent called Pav. He is crackers and was doing a tour of each bar trying to speak and flirt with every Thai (or western for that matter) girl in there. Ended up leaving because a girl he'd hooked up with before was waiting outside the door of his Guest House (21 Guest House, the same as me. Not the nicest or most spacious place, but cheap at 300 Baht a night). I left alone as J left with a lady again.
M called at 4.30 am and sounded particularly upset after being left alone by her friends when she used the toilet, whilst they paid their own barfines and went to Hollywood disco - poor thing. Hope she's happier today, I'm sure she will be with some sleep & sobriety, even though she said she wasn't drunk by the end of last night.
Went karoke last night, me and J butchered a variety of songs including teeny, weeny polka-dot bikini, Livin' la vida, my Sharona, play that funky music and doo doo doo (him). Saw Joy from 2 years ago. Nice to see her again, what a lovely girl. Gave me some useful info about On, too. Ran into Gary, who's getting 'bled dry' by the girl he's with (and her friends). May see him again in Pattaya - great guy, really nice guy but will probably never learn!
Got speaking to a couple of good guys called Barry (New Zealand) and Johan (Sweden) and we played the at pool and darts. Johan asked us to visit his house if we return to Hua Hin, James has his number. Played a Chinese guy at table-tennis who looked pretty useful in Barry's bar after he'd whipped his mate. I managed to scrape a 21-18 win after a dire start!!!
Had a great time in Hua Hin as always. Would have been nice to see some of the old faces, but I think they were all visiting home - maybe I will go back there later on.
