Nothing new here, still a scrooge and doing my own nails. Pinky Doodle Doo sponsored the rubber 3D bought in Queensbay Mall.
Was sick as hell when I arrived, had cough and very bad sinus problem. How bad? I didn't realize it was this bad. For everynight for the next 5 days, both nostrils were completely blocked. Go me!
On our first night there, we had our dinner in a restaurant called 'Raya' and it was delicious. We had crab noodles with plenty of crabs! YUM!
To be truthful, I couldn't really taste half the things thanks to my messed up taste buds but whatever I could taste was gooood. I forgotten the names of the two dishes below but the one on the left was yum yum while the fried 'Petai' (Parkia speciosa aka Stink Beans) that my manager loves so much was err.. only eaten by her and her alone.
Eating Petai is very good for health. Seriously.
Benefits of eating Petai
It helps with depression, anemia, PMS, blood pressue, brain power, constipation, heartburn, hangover, morning sickness, nerves, mosquito bite.
Looking at the list, it's like wow! This ought to be sold at all hospitals and pharmacies, right? There's just one tiny downfall to Petai. The smell is second to none. Your fart, breath, urine will have the wonderful aroma Eau de Petai for a while..
I mean, I had blocked nose, even if I fart, I can't smell it but I swear it might just kill my manager off so I refrained from eating it... for her sake XD
Argh didn't mean to dedicate so much space to one dish but moving on, we had prawns! So anyway for the next five days, me and my manager were the perfect little girls (actually not so little but..) we slept early, woke up early and visited hospitals. Many many hospitals.
Not for MY sake anyway. We stopped at the Phuket International Hospital and they were selling small little teddy bears for kids living with HIV. For 100baht each, we could either donate the bears and hang them on the tree (both money and bear will be given to the patient) or take the bear home.
I decided to make the donation and hang the bear on the tree. I wasn't suppose to remove the clear plastic but I didn't know. I hope the kid who receives it won't mind a gray,dusty, dirty bear. I'm so sorry!!
I felt a little sad on returning, not because of anything but the hospitals there were fabulous looking compared to ours here. Sure we're cheaper and all but their hospitals are almost like big shopping malls. Theirs smells of coffee from the little cafes, our smells of disinfectants. Their share holders sure pumped in alot of monies. *twiddle thumbs*
