Hey everybody, well as you know, Bangkok is not a great fan of safety, as we have once again experienced!, Andy needed some more trainers, so we decided to go to the MBK mall. Its absolutely huge, 5 stories tall! But 2 get there we had to get on a "tuck tuck" which is basically a mo ped connected to a trailer. The deal is that if they stop off on the weay, and get us to make shop owners believe taht we are interested in buyin a suite for ten minutes, they will be rewarded with free fuel.
So we went into this taylors where this man new we wernt wanting to buy, just to get the free fuel, so he was wanting us to get out. But we sat down and had a look at these suits that were really overpriced. He then asked us what suit we wanted, in which we responded, we were not sure. he then started to be really horrible saying that at our age, we shopuld know what we want! I then came up with a masterplan in my head (jack's),so, i leant over to the guy and whispered that andrew needed a suit becuse he was an international secret agent for England, and made him swore secrecy. The man must have guessed that andy had some licence to kill or something because after that he became alot more friendly!
We then left in the tuck tuck with no suite, but our driver was given no petrol, so not surprisingly, it ran out! So we had to get another one.
The same happened on the way back ecept, because we didnt get the man any petrol, he chucked us out the taxi! If i see that driver again, in think the secret agent story may have to come out!
Anyway, hope everyone is ok. Off to ko samui in a few hours. Should really enjoy the 12 hour bus journey! We will talk 2 y'all soon!
