    I did a tour around Maprachan Lake this afternoon and it seemed most bars were gearing up for a big night with the girls making banana leaf floats and dressed in traditional outfits.

    We also had a big thunder storm around 7.00 pm which may have dampened festivities.

    Loy, there you are. Your fan club were missing you over in beer o'clock thread in the dog house, forum prizes like Teachy, Reachy and Princess; sleepless night for them i fear if you don't hop over and allay their worries. Welcome back.

    I was planning to pay money to dump some festive looking items in the river but decided to skip the middleman and just threw 2 days' worth of garbage into the klong.

    Room is sparkling now

    I rinsed the garbage first, Dill... Some of it (I suppose) was even edible by klong-fish standards.
