This day I had planned to be a chill one. A slow day with mostly planning my last two weeks in Thailand.
I had only booked a cooking class with the owner of the guest house, Jum around 3 o clock in the afternoon.
So until then I just read up on a couple of places around Phuket, I sent some emails and wrote some stuff. Not very productive at all since I still don’t know what to do in Phuket and my blog is not as updated as I want.
We stoped by the local market amd got the ingredients for Panang Thai Kai (I think), cabbage soup and some kind of coconut banana thing for desert. It didn’t take that much time to cook it all and even though I didn’t do thaat much, I think I can make it all at home 😀 And it was delicious!
Jeff, a retired fire fighter stoped by and we had enough food to share. We had nice conversations and it was all in all very pleasant dinner. He inspired me to learn a bit more Thai since he himself knew much more than me.
And later a german couple, Wald and his wife stoped by as well and we had interesting conversations about Sweden, because as it turns out, they had been sailing in Sweden for many years, around Saltsjöbaden and around all the islands.
In the evening the girls working at the guest house, Ni and Kwam took me out to walk, shop and eat at the night market. Togheter with us was their friend, Boun (I could not get his name right, so maybe it is actually something else :p). They bought me some street food to try out which was very nice of them and we talked about differences between Thailand and Sweden. We also compared animals and fruit and other things we came up with that we could look up on our smartphones (Yay technology). And during all of this they tried to teach me a bit of thai… but I am totally worthless with the different tones, but I really appreciate the effort though. 😀 And I hope I can come back some time and actually be able to speak at least sone thai to redeem myself 🙂
Oh and yeah, I had this fruit for the first time in my life. Sapodilla! Very good 😀
