Calm Cloudy Days

Text by Olle - Living on Lamai Beach - Friday, June 18, 2010


The last two days has been very cloudy all days long in a way that we have not seen much before. I hope it will be a little bit more sun even if some clouds does not matter at all for me. It is just that everything gets so much more beautiful when it is sunny. We have not done that much yet but my family have been staying on the beach and also have been sleeping kind of late these two first mornings.

Nui, Jessica and I went to Nathon in the day to get a few things and we also ate a less good lunch there as well in a small place. Either we are unlucky to find good places or we are to picky after eating good food. Anyway there are a lot of places serving regular Thai dishes less tasty.

When we got back to Lamai we stayed with my family at the beach until the sun started to go down. The water was very still today while yesterday some waves were rolling on to the beach. Just before we left we got a few drops of rain on us. I would not say it was raining because it were so few drops. In the evening we all went to Chaweng with Songtaew and had a very nice dinner and also did some shopping. Interesting to see the advantage when speaking good Thai. Even with pale white skin the price I got on most places was half or less than my family got when asking and from there it is rarely a problem to get a really good price without any back and forth price ping pong game. On the other hand I am not the kind of person spending time to lower a good price with 20 bath. For me that's just stupid unless not planning on eating noodles from 7-eleven and renting a tent to save money. We then ended the night on the beach in Chaweng sipping on some nice drinks and Khun got a ball of fried ice cream big as a handball.

Yet another Friday have passed by and I am sure this weekend will be great for me and I hope it will for you too.

After a weekend in the big city we are now back on Samui again. Today was also the day my family arrived here and I went to meet them at the airport in the early morning. At 7 o'clock, before I had left home it started to rain and it kept raining for about an hour. When I left at about 8:30 the sun started to shine more and more and the rest of the day was not at all bad. It was extremely fun to meet my parents and brothers again. After we had dropped everything off at their hotel we went to eat lunch that Nui prepared at our house and then we went to take a swim in the 32 degree ocean and later in the 33 degree swimming pool. Today I got one of those wow moments that I get sometimes. It is the moments when I realize how nice things can be here and how beautiful it is. When living in it every day it is easy to forget so it is nice to get reminded some times now and then. Just the feeling of driving from home and a minute later be on a fantastic beach is something that I would miss like crazy if I would not do.

When Nala saw the family she got more than happy. She got absolutely blocked and crazy, she threw herself around as a tennis ball and acted as she gone nuts for a short while. Good that my family knows how to act not to make it worse. Most other people does not care what we say but start to talk and give her attention. Black thought it was interesting to meet new people as well but he greeted them in a much more calm way.

In the evening we went for a dinner all together, including Jessica. We do not think it is strange at all that it is possible to spend time together with a previous partner, but for the thai people she is my sister because there are so many that just cannot understand that you actually can be friends like this. After the dinner my family was half a sleep at the table, at least my brothers, so we said good night pretty early. I admit the sun and the playing around in the water had made me kind of tired without any jetlag and lack of sleep so I totally understand them.
