Sunday Dinner With the Fern House Family – Day 15 – June 10th

One of the guys I first met in Thailand was David Le…An Asian (Viet) – Australian , almost like me…we walk around Phuket and people think we’re Thai until we open our mouths, lol.  He helped show me the ropes when I got here and has an awesome the big brother I never had, haha.  Anyways, he’s been here for a little more than a month and leaves Monday…so Kwan & Koy invited the whole Fern House Retreat for a home-made Thai style dinner on Sunday night to give him a proper send-off.

They cooked from scratch:

  • massaman chicken curry (my favorite)
  • tom yum soup
  • a vegetable dish
  • rice
  • various deserts

Everything was “aloy mak mak” (very tasty).

Later that night, I started to feel sick…I think it was from the drinking we did on Friday and Saturday night.  With training, your immune system is already worn down.  So I took the Z-pack antibiotics that I packed from the US and went to sleep early.

    Hey Chris – Its Mohan (yes thats right the guy from the office which I’m sure you don’t want to be reminded of right now but still…)… i’ve been following your blog actually, esp given how jealous I am of this trip you’ve been able to take. Do you have a new e-mail address I can reach you at? I saw a couple pics of some of the shorts you bought and was wondering if you could pick up a few for me as well before you leave?
