Picking Ticks Again

Picking Ticks

This Friday has been very nice. I had to stay by the computer most of the day but after noon I took a longer walk with Nala which she enjoyed. Sometimes she only wants to go a short walk but today she was in the same mood as me. The weather has been very hot today with more than 34 degrees and very humid which made me soaked. When I got back home I picked up Khun from school and short after he went to the beach to play in the water with some friends. That's the beauty of Samui, even in the summer the ocean is most often safe to play in.

The high humidity has made the ticks pop up as crazy and yesterday before sleep I said goodnight to Nala and at the same time I saw a bunch of ticks on her ear. In a spot not bigger than 2x2 cm she had 15 small bastards. This morning I picked a lot as well, and many of them had fallen off by themselves during the night as well. If she only jumps up in the bed for a few seconds there are ticks crawling around. Sick and tired of them is the least I can say. At least Nala know how to lay still on her back while we pick them.

In the evening after Nui got home after a good day at work we all ate watermelon in front of the TV, even Nala ate a whole lot of melon. We recently noticed that we have a movie channel which only show Thai movies, many old ones too and this channel has become our favorite one. There are no breaks between the movies and many of the movies are very good as well. Some of them might even be in my top list all time movies. On the other Thai channels most of the movies I have seen have been very bad ones, either to silly to be funny or just bad ghost movies.

Good Days

Having Fun

This morning the weather was a little bit cloudy but anyway okay. It really changes from day to day now but the rain mostly falls during the late afternoon and in the nights but it does not rain that much at all. Nui has been running low on coffee and the store, Macro who are the only ones here selling the coffee told us last time we went there that they had quit selling this brand. Luckily we got the telephone number to the company so that Nui could call them and see if she could buy directly from them. However the price would be slightly higher due to transportation and after a few phone calls the company said they will talk to Macro again and see if they could continue to have this brand in stock. After a few minutes they called again and said they will keep sending the coffee to Macro which was more than we expected to hear, but it would take one week until the next delivery. This coffee is so much tastier than any other we found here and Nui's costumers really think it is something special too.

While I was by the computer Nui decided to take Nala outside to let her play with her tennis balls for a while. Black tagged along even if he does not understand the idea of catching the tennis balls. He anyway ran after Nala while she was hunting down the balls. Most Thai dogs are not used to play like this. The raining and the humid weather today had made the mosquitoes a lot more than usual and Nui had to go back inside after a short while because she was bitter so much and normally she almost never gets bitten.

In the evening we were about to go to the beach even though the weather was cloudy. We were just about to take off when it started to rain and we changed our minds. Khun went away to a friend who had a birthday party while we looked at a movie.

Lazy Weekend

Text by Olle - Living on Lamai Beach - Tuesday, July 27, 2010

This weekend was one of the most lazy ever. On Sunday we had almost no electric but it was enough to make the TV work. The computer however would not start. The weather was also very bad so we ended up staying inside all day long watching TV. Since Khun was at home we had to see dubbed movies and in Thailand they have zero to no skill at all to make it sound real. They all speak in such an extreme fake way and when it is children speaking in the movie adult fake their voices and when not looking it is impossible to tell if it is a cartoon or a "real" movie. After a while of that sound I had enough and went outside on the porch and read a magazine. I really hate to listen to dubbed movies in general and this takes the price. To make realistic voices is half the skill of an actor or not more I think.

Nala slept most of the day, or pretended to sleep so that she would not have to go outside and I do not complain about that either. The one good thing about bad weather is that the temperature drops. In the evening the electric came back 100% and I started to watch a movie by myself but after 50 minutes the power went out, this time 100%. It all got pitch black and we all went outside together and played a little games and just sat down and talked. The reason for these power cuts is that they are replacing the power poles with bigger ones so it really is for the better. Just before midnight the power came back for the second time.

Yesterday and today Khun have not been in school. They had two days off which practically meant that I had to put up with more sound of dubbed movies, it equals torture for me. After he had watched TV for 10 straight hours I had him turn it off I guess he did not mind that much but it was like heaven to my ears not having to crank up music to get away. Maybe I exaggerating but my gosh but I hate it so much, ha ha. As long as my problems stays on that level I guess one should not complain.

In the evening after working all day I relaxed with another movie, it has been a while since I saw any good movies so I appreciated it a lot.
