When I know I will see a beautiful beach I don't know what happens but I usually end up in calm, ocean blues. For our last day in Koh Samet, we decided to head to the hills via motorbike and find some hidden beach somewhere up there. Well...no hidden beach, but Koh Samet is a hell of a drive, with so much to see. The roads are so quiet save for the occasional tourists or locals in similar bikes. Hellos are given, and then they go on their way. Outfit-wise, I looked pretty touristy, didn't I? Well, it was hot and stuffy, and we weren't gonna be in the water the whole time. I had to adapt somehow right? So this peplum top and my denim shorts (which I now realize you will find in almost all my travel diaries!)

The last few hours though we spent back at our beach, sipping cocktails like we had all the time in the world. Haha...we used the hotel's public shower area while other guests gave us weird looks...no choice, but it was a bit embarrassing. It was better than nothing, as a few hours after that we were back in Bangkok to heavy traffic and rain. A few hours for souvenirs and dinner, and then a long hot bath back at our final hotel, Four Points by Sheraton, watching the Godfather II and eating some souvenirs meant for our friends back home...shhhh...don't tell!

Anyways, where would you go for vacation next? Let me know...I'm already planning our next trip. Somewhere farther. Well, that's it for now, see you soon

TOO HOT TO FUNCTION

It is really too hot nowadays, so much so that my brain has turned off. Of course this plasticky top is a perfect summer choice right? But it's exactly what I wore one super sunny day a few weeks back, even before my mini wedding.

Yep, looking to my archives again for something to post. My last photos of Thailand are in my laptop ,untouched. And I had super bad luck with the camera, after years of abuse, it malfunctioned when rain got in it. I don't know if it can be salvaged. Oh yes, I'm heartbroken....I don't know what I'll do if it actually is beyond repair.

Anyways, I don't feel like I'm unemployed. I'm so busy my face is sprouting new pimples due to stress every day. But everyday I wonder what now? It's only a matter of time before everything is done so what should I do after that? I'm hoping against hope I find something stable soon! Oh well, till next time sweeties!

ISLAND LIFE


Top: Motel// Skirt: local store// Shoes: MNG// Bag: Monki// Sunnies: Pull & Bear

Sigh...I really want to show you these pictures ASAP but getting to the end means it's the end of my vacation. And who can let go of this right? I mean, is this not an awesome beach?

Koh Samet is a dream. We booked a villa suite in Le Vimarn Cottages and Spa located on the private Ao Prao Beach, probably the quietest beach in all of the island. Our time in Koh Samet was little more than enjoying our time under the sun, swimming in the clear blue beach, and of course sipping summery cocktails during happy hour. 

Nighttime we made our way by a local cab, a songtham I think, and made our way to the party beach - Sai Kaew. After a large Thai spread, we ended our one night watching fire dancers on the beach, munching on yumyum banana roti. Sigh...Blisss....

Anyways, one more post to go sweeties, see you soon!
