OLIVIA: WOW! The lead up to NYE's Full Moon party is caos, this place is filling up by the day and it's a 24hr party The cocky steroid Aussies strutting around takes some getting used to...
Following the jungle party episode,
Becky and rob knocked for us that m
orning, well we thought it was morning but it was in fact 13.30pm! still on English time! We grabbed some breakfast/brunch & decided to hire a moped ,Parker already had a bike as they were staying much further north of the island compared to the rest of us... So Becky & I stayed local while the boys headed off on robs bike to find another one, It was bloody scorching that day and the boys had been gone ages... We walked up & down looking for them until we plotted up & got a drink. Not long after they returned with a funny look on their faces!
Koh Phangan has some seriously steep roads with blind bends that drop off cliffs. Any way Jak & rob were coming up this hill on their way back, well trying to there was a 4x4 in front of them which wasn't going forward if anything rolling backwards down the hill, as the boys slowly passed looking in at the idiot driver holding everyone up there were two girls in the truck histerical, their hand break wouldn't work and she couldn't find the biting point on the clutch! So she was stuck with her foot on the brake crying.
Jak hopped off robs bike which by this point was barely moving up the hill anyway as they'd lost all speed and asked the girls if they wanted help? Yes they replied We cant get it up the hill, Jak opened the drivers door and put his hand on the break while the girl moved out of the way over to the passenger side, he needed the hysterical girl to put her hand on the break from the passenger side while he hopped in! ... Eventually the spastic girls got it together ( their from Essex by the way) and Jak reved the s*** out of it the rest of the way up the hil. Dramas!!!, why they got a 4x4 in the first place I don't know! So they returned eventually and we all rode over to the boys hotel to see what they were up to.
None of us had been over robs way yet so the four lads decided to get peds too, Foxy & Walters on one Ryan & Charles on the other ... It was a good 20min ride to their place but it was lovely and peaceful unlike our mad resort. We stopped at this cute little hut place on a beach called Malibu ... It was gorgeous white powder sands and clear blue sea!
With the sun going down we decided to head back to our end of the island, none of us fancied the winding roads and drop offs in the dark. On the way home Ryan and Charlie whitnessed an awfull crash with two bikes head on and said they didn't think the guy would make it ... We were glad to of just missed it , they were pretty shook up and gave their bike back as soon as they got back. To calm things down that night we all decided to go out for dinner. We ate in a seafood resturant just back from the beach, wow! I love sea food and this meal was gorgeous jumbo prawns with salad and jacket potato! I think I can get used to this.
The next few days kinda blended together as everyone was buzzin for the full moon and It didn't slow down, the build up to full mon is half of it. When Jak and I returned back to our hotel after spending the day with Charlie and Ryan over at their beach we noticed huge crowds gathering on our beach. There was a bikini contest going on! Girls from all over the world whom were staying in had rin were parading up and down this stage doing all sorts of things, I wish I took pictures it was pretty funny, some girls just absolutely love themselves ...! (also pretty strange standing with your bf watching other girls). A Canadian girl came out in a Santa bikini and then took here top off for the crowd that got her through to the semi's lol! It was fun to watch, good banter, our English girl got through to the finals but didn't manage to win but she had my vote!
