Phuket is VERY touristy! There are a lot of ex-pats here and and it's bloody hot. They know how to party here, too.
Good to have a proper drink for P's last night with us on the 7th - then even after suffering all day with a dodgy stomach and frequent toilet visits - another heavy one last night. Visited a rather nice ? too.
Another heavy one on 8th. Was dancing on bar with the girls and me and J tried some of their deep fried bugs! They weren't actually too bad, better than the chicken's foot anyway. Last night I had the discipline to call it a night at about 2 am. Just been to see if J is up and he looks decidedly rough. Said he was out until 5 am, so it's a good job I did go back by the sounds of it, as my budget in considerably less than his. Had a nice Thai oil massage lasting 1 hour.
Worst day so far (10th). Had an elephant ride, which was fine. Then in the evening, two girls from Bar one ripped me and J off big time. We were playing pool and they came over and suggested doubles, which we happily obliged. They made it a game for a drink, which we won. We then proceeded to lose the next 3 games as a result of some serious showboating and rule confusion. Upon leaving, we were presented with a bill for a little over 1,100 baht, having bought 1 singha each!!!!! We had clearly not agreed to play 4 games and buy 2 lady drinks for each game lost. Unfortunately, I let this colour the whole evening and was in a real stink all night. Then managed to have a misunderstanding with 1 of the girls who we went to a karoake bar with later on, so I left. Hopefully today will be better.
