An ode to icecream

15 Dec

In between ferries I had time for an ice lolly. Check this gem out,

Not only is it banana flavoured, but it looks like a banana! Including a frozen jelly peelable skin. Import this to Britain NOW and I may just stop complaining about the lack of Maxibons back home.

Ps. If anyone else misses Maxibons please leave a comment. together we can make a difference.

Street Pancake, Koh Tao

12 Dec

This might not look like much:

In fact it probably looks awful. Well, let me tell you that it’s fucking delicious! A banana and chocolate pancake with extra condensed milk is the bomb.

Furthermore, the chef/cook/pancake maker had so much flair and je ne sais quoi that if a movie called ‘Pancake’ was ever made, then Tom Cruise would have play the main guy. I’ve never seen anyone dispose of a banana skin with such finesse. He would devotedly win Britain’s Got Talent, whilst simultaneously sating everyone’s appetite.

Zu Chilli, Koh Tao, Thailand

12 Dec

Zu Chilli was tucked away in Sairee Village on Koh Tao. It was busy most nights, being full of hungry divers. If you can’t beat off on them, might as well join them (oop, saucy).

I had the seafood Pad Thai: prawns and squid, wonderfully seasoned noodles, lime zest, and ground peanuts as a condiment (which fast becoming essential to my diet!)

Tasty and affordable at 70-80 baht. The portions are decent but as it’s so tasty I always want more.

Very good shit.

Big Blue Scuba Diving on Koh Tao

12 Dec

We spent a few days on Koh Tao at the beginning of last week, lounging around and warning our SSI Open Water Dive qualifications. Yes, we are both now qualified scuba divers, although I prefer the term “professional”.

We have membership cards now and I kind of wish I’d given them the wrong name so as to have my own McLovin moment:

Oh well, it could be worse, they could have misspelt my name…oh wait:

Anyhow we both have cards, we’re both legit and we both loved our time at Big Blue. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly, and the dives were serene, tranquil and otherworldly. Koh rap is also the cheapest place to do it worldwide.

Do it.
