greg meets mariah





after all the crap weather on the west coast we came to our senses & headed back to the east coast islands- koh samui was a v.touristy island- more like a resort. Gorg restaurants on beach for eating out at night though, we went kayaking around the beach, more thai massages on the beach, Greg did the obligatory tourist thing & got some custom made clothes, avoided having monkeys or iguanas thrown on us by touts, did a thai cooking course which was awesome- at SITCA, where people who want to be trained as proper thai chefs go, its been shown on the BBC apparently. Learnt how to make massamam paste from scratch using a pestle & mortar, massamam curry, tiger prawn salad with chillies & spicy fish ball soup in coconut milk- all v.scrummy if we do say so ourself- u get to eat what u made in the restaurant upsatairs after- only downside being we couldnt eat it all!

saw a lady boy cababret show, was hilarious, they all mimed along to madonna, mariah carey, 'big mama', beyonce, whitney houston etc. Greg was unfortunate enough to attract the unwanted attention of 1 of the performers so when they needed male audience participants he was dragged backside- where there were hands & things everywhere- poor guy was pretty traumatised, I'll leave it to him to explain what went on backstage. On stage they all did a little dance for us all dressed as lady boys, have to say the dress suited him- look at the pics & judge for yourself!
