Took and friends

posted on October 11, 2006 in Thailand,Travel


We’ve been on Ko Samui, the island a bit further down than Phangan. Spent a few days in Chaweng – played some football golf, frollicked a little on the beach.

Here is the football golf place, with the guy in charge. He was very happy.

We then moved down to Hat Lamai on the South East coast. We stayed at Best Resort, run by a rather friendly lady boy, in rooms that were similar to cells (one room, which technically contained the toilet too – there was no sink). We went to a little place called Kokila and readily agreed that the waitress was the most awesomest thing in the world.

Kokila shows films in the evening so we went back that night and got talking to another waitress, called Took. She spoke excellent English and mostly put it to use ripping Rosey to pieces. It was hilarious. We ended up playing a little Killer Pool with the staff at Kokilas, and mostly got hustled real good.

Later Took offered to take us around Ko Samui the following day and show us the various sights it has to offer. Also, in the course of the evening we learn the amazing waitress is called Miaow (yes, as in the noise a cat makes when you kick it). This simply adds to the awesomeness. Took also lets us choose which two films to play the following night. (We go for Superman Returns and You, Me and Dupree).

So the following day Took takes us around, and clearly she’s doing something right, as the car is a beast. A Chevy Colorado with a built in DVD player.
We ask her how long ago she learnt to drive.
“Oh, I don’t have a license!” she said happily.
There are three clicks as we exchange glances and buckle the seat belts, I tug mine just to make sure. We go to see the waterfalls and the Big Buddha and all in all it was a top day.

Some kids enjoying the water.

So that evening we spend our last night in Lamai and Kokilas, enjoying our films and nabbing a few photos with everyone.

This is everyone; Took, Miaow and the other one.

The whole gang
And one with Miaow. The photo does not do her justice. She is awesome and will make me a great wife.

Truly we were sad to leave Hat Lamai. The pics are courtesy of Lewis.


  1. I agree – Miaow is hot!
