Sitting down for breakfast I was still missing my cereal as they served up rice, fried vegetables and some grisly battered pork as my craving for cornflakes grew exponentially.
With Khoon Maa and Phaaw out for a little while I had some time, and privacy, to attempt to suss out how the toilet worked with no flush system and the apparent absence of any bog roll.
With what would be become a common theme of failing to tell me what was going on most of the time they told me we were heading out to a Thai wedding party in 10 minutes and to get ready, as I raked through my limited bundle of clothes for the least creased formal looking things to throw on
Having to pose for photos with the wedding couple I wondered if they were as bemused about the whole situation as I was or more likely wondering who the dodgy geezer at the end was dressed in a shirt that looked like it had just been swiped off the kitchen table (thanks Khoon Phaaw!) who they would have to be paying dinner for.
The wedding party was more of a wedding feast with enough food to feed the whole town which was a good thing since it seemed like the whole town was invited or at least had decided to turn up anyway. With plenty of speeches and singing from anyone who felt like grabbing the microphone, Thais never seem to turn down an opportunity to belt out a tune or two, what better why to express your love for the person you have just married than by serving tongue for dinner, whose tongue I never did find out, or really want to know.
