we might hit more traffic than our previous ping pong show post with this one b/c this one has videos. this is in pattaya, where we saw a ping pong show. to avoid rape or thai jails, i didn’t record anything inside the actual ping pong show. sorry, PERVS. but here are a few videos of what it’s like on the famous strip of pattaya. instead of a red light district, thailand has a famous pink light district. and there you can find open bars with ladies and ladyboys vying for your attention (and money).

i can’t believe it’s already been 5 months. and upon revisiting the blog, i’ve been reminded of how much fun we had and still surprised by the profound success of our rather impromptu trip. here are some videos that i have neglected. i’ll upload them in 4 separate posts. 

the following are videos from samed island, our first destination in thailand.

have you ever seen a dog to that before?

today we explored adit’s hometown, rachaburi. home of the original floating market. we had a rather nature-filled day as we explored some mountain, a waterfall, a sheep farm and even a bat cave! first we went to the floating market. it was hot and sticky. we didn’t ride the boat because we were lazy.

we then headed off to some serene lake/mountain thing.

as we went left for the other side of the lake, we found ourselves surrounded by monkeys and emaciated cows (even the cows are skinnier than me 😦 ).
gross. at least they werent as hostile and aggressive as the previous ones we saw.

and then a funny thing happened. shawn leaned in to wash his hands. and he fell. he yelped and i was nearest to him. and i saw him reach out his hand for help. and within that quick second i had the option to a. help him. or b. take photos of the event. guess which option i chose.
if you notice, his clothes are still dry. meaning. i couldve helped him.

and then we went to this park looking area with statues of bats on top of street lights. we were told to wait. and after 10 minutes of waiting we saw a huge stream of flying things come out ot the mountain. and turns out they were BATS. there were so many of them, i can’t even begin to tell you. it was just this long, never ending stream of bats. we stood there for about 15 minutes and there were still more flying out. it began to rain and so we left. and as we looked back there were still bats flying out.
yuck!

yuck!

looks like smoke, MADE OF BATS!

i was really excited about the aquarium b/c i wanted to see all the jellyfish. jenna led the way so she can do all the talking and hopefully get me that thai discount. but the lady, being a bitch and charged me full. and i didn’t care b/c i wanted to see jellyfish! but they conveniently decided not to tell us till the very end that the jellyfish exhibit was closed. LAME! you can also pay about $200 to swim with the sharks but no one wanted to do that with me. also, i thought $200 was too expensive. the lady was eagerly trying to get me to do it. and then i asked her if i could punch the sharks and she kind of didn’t know how to respond.

im really excited.

this is how im going to smile for the rest of the trip.

anyway, we’ve been to three different flea markets now and i’ve been going nuts over all the cute clothes. they have booths with reconstructed vintage dresses, architectural-ish harem pants and oddly structured layering shirts, etc. etc. etc. all so cute. and all for so cheap! my main and only obstacle is that i’m a fat cow. since most of the clothes are custom/hand made, they carry clothes in one size. and i am evidently, way too fat. it’s so depressing. i wanted this harem pant/romper thing but i couldn’t even get my foot through. to which kanu said, “angela, this place is not for people like you. this place is for skinny people.”

thank you, kanu for stating the obvious.

therefore, i have to resort to shopping for rings, shoes and bracelets. like a fat girl. i then went and ate my sorrows in my new favorite thai dish. some meat noodle soup. it’s like pho but tastier.

so i met kanu, corlid, jenna, adit and apple 5 years ago on my first trip to thailand. they were still in school and their gang of friends were active and pretty popular within their department (forming a boy band, hosting talent shows, putting on plays, etc.). they’ve graduated since then and even though they all live in bangkok, they rarely get to hang out together (last time they all saw each other was several years ago). so it was cool to see them together again.

After the zoo, we went to a walking street market/flea market. Most of the stuff being sold were either handmade or “vintage” like old cameras and hipster glass frames. there were also A LOT of food vendors as well. i got my fill of hoi-turd (i don’t know how it’s spelled). it’s basically a seafood omelette with bean sprouts and some other green unidentifiable vegetables. and it’s so so so so good. for dessert i had roti (don’t know how it’s spelled either) which is like a thai version of crepe. it was good. i’m going to find potato balls to eat for breakfast today. OH YEAH. i also got my nails did. a girl handpainted tiger prints on my nails and jeweled them as well. jealous?

there were tons of old crap that silverlake kids would go gaga over.

i feel like we’ve already done so much and that we’ve been here for a long time now. but it hasn’t even been a full week yet and we haven’t even explored bangkok. today we are going to JJ market and then back to jenna’s hometown to do laundry and chill out for a bit and do some massive photo uploading. then it’s off to bangkok again. hopefully by the next post we will have photos up as well.

oh yeah. and the two times i’ve seen a black person here, it has been pretty racist. the first was in pattaya on that seedy strip where all the hookers hang out. he was playing reggae music in one of the restaurants. the second was the most racist thing ever (and i have a photo to prove it). it was at the tiger zoo. and there was a black guy and a black girl in the zoo. not at, but IN. as in, they were behind the glass as one of the attractions. they were wearing the traditional racist african garb (just some tiger print cloth) and the male was smiling and posing while holding a tiger leash and the female had her arms crossed and looked pretty pissed. and people were taking pictures! (myself included but for far different reasons). a lot of things ran through my mind. things like do THEY know this is racist? or how do you even find a position like that? the only thing john and i can come up with is that the girl is actually very well educated with a degree in anthropology and she submitted her resume to the zoo for some field and they said “we have the perfect position for you!” and now she’s really mad.

racism?
