Tonight my friend J and I went for drinks and dinner at Khao San Road.
It was so lovely – we talked non stop for four hours!
J and I met on the train about a year ago. We really only speak for ten minutes at a time each morning on the train, so we certainly made up for lost conversation tonight! We both listen to our iPods on the train, and I think that is how conversation started. That, or she grabbed me when I was about to fall from the movement of the train!
We discussed our music tastes, and it turns out we have a lot in common. She and I both love Genevieve Maynard, and it really impressed me that someone I randomly met knew of Genevieve’s music.
Tonight we probably talked about music for about three of the four hours! There was a lot of music we have in common, and then some others we can introduce each other to. She is so very passionate about music and I love to see that quality in people.
I had a great time and look forward to doing it again soon.
This is what I wore.
The dress and jacket were picked up from layby last week. I adore the colour and shape of the dress – it reminds me a bit of Carrie Bradshaw.
I am wearing lipstick. I only have lipstick because the lovely girls at my pharmacy threw in some bonus samples with a really expensive script purchase one day when I was sick. I think lipstick on me looks a bit gaudy. But it probably looks ok.
Jacket – Free Fusion by Target
Dress – Hot Options by Target
Boots – Wittner (you can’t see them closely but they are amazing black, grey and green snakeskin boots with a super-thin high heel – I am in love!)
Tee shirt – Target
Necklace – seven rings of luck – 21st present from close friends
Ring – Diva
Hairclip – Mimco
I drank Frangelico and lemonade, wedge of lime, no ice. The drink I order if there is no Moscato.
We shared these dishes:
Prawn cutlets wrapped in crispy potato ‘noodles’
Chicken and sago balls served in lettuce leaves
Banana fritters with coconut icecream
Pumpkin custard with vanilla icecream
It was all delicious! And beautifully presented. Look at how delicate the prawn cutlets are!
I had such a great time with J tonight and am really glad to have struck up a conversation with a stranger on the train. I challenge you to do the same – you never know, you may just create a close friendship!
