Living Like a Thai Day 11
Not a lot to report today, budget wise it has been a very boring day. Last night my friend Ting came by for a little while and she brought with her the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie and a few beers The movie was so so ( and Pirated ), the beers were cold ( I swear I don’t drink as much as you think ) and the company was nice.
Today I woke up and took a shower and fate dealt the budget another cruel blow as one by one I ran out of Soap, Shampoo and then toothpaste. Okay, I screwed up one night on the budget, I don’t deserve to get hammered like this *shakes his fists at the sky*. No biggie, I think I can squeeze one more tooth brushing out of the toothpaste tube and the shower soap I use is the body wash type so I can get by with adding a little water to that and the shampoo bottle and get by with a shower tonight and one tomorrow morning. Looks like tomorrows budget is already spent!
After my disappointing shower I headed out to the street to get me a breakfast of banana and pineapple for all of 20 baht ( $.68 ). I then went for my morning walk before heading back to the man cave to work on some things. For lunch I had my Favorite…ramen noodles mixed up with some rice which was a bit different and good.
For dinner I walked up to the night market and got me some Wu Chai otherwise known as fried tofu with green leafy vegetables ( I have no idea what vegetables they are but they are definitely green). Doesn’t sound very appetizing but trust me this stuff is delicious especially dipped into the sweet soy sauce it comes with. And for 20 baht ( $.68 ) you get a big bag full of it cut up into chunks. Not only tastes good but apparently it’s good for you and it’s very filling.
And that brings to a close another day living like a Thai I might as well add another 17 baht to the total because I have a hankering for an Oishi Black tea with lemon and I might head up to 7/11 now and get me one Oishi Black Tea 17 baht ( $.57 ).
