A soggy morning in Koh Samui
Having a washing machine and a drier on a rainy Saturday morning is a bliss!
The scene taken off my room's balcony at 07:00 this morning..
It's great to have the time advantage here as well as the freedom of moving around alone. The organiser had assigned a driver for me so that I can go and get some common sights of the island. But I guess with the rain and all, there won't be much to photograph. Thankfully, I can also do some laundry and by the time I get back, the clothes are already dry and I can wear them. Especially my shorts. Last nite's dinner was a disaster. Solely because all the travel pundits thought they knew what they were doing. There is this woman travelling with the group who used to be with Malay Mail. I spotted her at the airport, but her attitude showed me that she was indeed the person I kinda marked out.. Anyways, she got a kiasu attitude, so, I guess better leave this one out alone. She also bragged a lot, and the TV crew that I am travelling with were impressed.. I can see the organiser was also very pissed off with the TV crew's team leader last night for demanding this and that. Lucky for me, I was patient enough to watch the drama unfold and the whole world go by. Today would be a heavy day for picture taking and all the hoohahs. I hope to get some good shots in town as well as the fishing village around Koh Samui. Maybe a temple shot or some scenery and have a swell time during lunch.. More updates later...
