Saturday Night in Ao Nang Beach

We started off the evening at Taj Restaurant, and it was the most delicious food we've had since arriving in Thailand. period. We had a delicious Indian vegetarian dish called "Mutter Paneer" which was a sort of tomato/cream based sauce with cubes of cottage cheese that tasted like tofu..quite lovely..with cilantro and fresh peas. We also ordered a vegetarian pizza, which tasted just like home, and quenched our thirst with Pina Colada's and Chang beers. We had almost finished our food, when a couple sat down at the table beside us, and engaged us in conversation- and we ended up spending the whole night with them, from one bar to the next.

We wandered down a dark alley and wound up at a seedy little bar called climax...where we played a game of pool and had a few Changs..
Then hit up an awesome reggae inspired spot complete with baby kittens lounging on the bar..and before we left rasta bartender/owner Mr.Long hooked us up with a free shot of his special tequila..

We had been aching for some rock n roll since arriving in Thailand, and were drawn around the corner by booming female vocals and a live band! Shaun got up on stage and played drums to a cover of Metallica's "Enter Sandman" and then I took the mic and slayed Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" and Joan Jett's "I Love Rock n Roll" it was effing amazing. Every member of the band was so fun and engaging..the other vocalist/keys master was so awesome rocking his toque and nike shirt with converse runners!

It was an amazing night and we stumbled back to our hotel room at around 2am..the latest we've stayed up since arriving here!!!
