Tigers and Thai Food

Thai food. I wouldn't be sad if I never saw it again in my life. It's been over a week and I'm over it. I find every opportunity not to eat it. Breakfast for instance...

A few mornings ago, I ordered an omelet and a bagel with lox and cream cheese.

It got so bad that we ventured out to the local mall and had pizza at The Pizza Company.

Can't say it was the best pizza I've ever had but it wasn't Thai food!

Neither was the Haagen Daaz ice cream!

When we got back to the hotel we rested up for dinner. Bring on the Thai food.

Oh yeah….and the pizza some of our friends brought back from their travels that day. I'm not the only one sick of Thai food.

Then these Thai chicken wings arrived. I have to say, I was all over those. All they needed was a little Frank's hot sauce...

We went out to the Simon Cabaret (aka Lady Boy Show). I giggled a bit when I saw this sign:

Good thing I left my durians at the hotel. Lol.

The show was pretty stupid and was a complete tourist trap but it was still entertaining nonetheless. 

Breakfast yesterday morning was pancakes, bacon and toast.

We went to the beach for a few hours. Beautiful.

We had lunch at the resort restaurant. Guess what I didn't order…Thai food. I went straight for the cheeseburger and fries.

Pretty delicious. 

We went back to the pool to swim for a bit. It rains here quite a bit. Joe and Dave got caught in the rain.

More Thai food for dinner.

I think one of the issues I'm having with the Thai food is that everything is starting to taste the same. I'm craving other flavors. 

Look what someone brought me back from a vending machine:

That's serious desperation, my friends. 

We went last night to see Muay Thai Boxing.

Afterwards, we hit Patong Beach again and they headed back to the hotel.

Breakfast this morning was a giant plate of bacon.

:) And poached eggs that arrived later.

We took a trip out to Tiger Land where you can go into tiger enclosures and pet them. Yep. Pet live tigers.

What does one do after petting giant tigers? Go Kart racing!

For lunch we ended up at Casa Mia Italian Restaurant by our hotel. There wasn't Thai food on the menu.

My husband and I shared a Caesar salad and bruschetta.

I was so over joyed with these fabulous flavors that I couldn't stand it.

Spaghetti with Meat Sauce:

Tartufo:

Life changing meal. Fabulous Italian food and such a nice break from Thai! I see myself going back to Casa Mia for sure.

We came back to the hotel and I took a nap. Dinner was more Thai food with the group. I still was full from lunch so I basically skipped dinner. I did eat the ice cream off the dessert plate with fried bananas and pineapple.

The weather here is insanely hot and humid and sucks the life right out of you…I'm off to bed!

Any foods you're currently sick of?
