Both still feeling ill but Vikki mustered the energy to sing for Paula's special day complimented by 39 'wake-up shakes' (plus one for luck...) which Paula was thrilled to receive as soon as she woke up...
Having been presented with a birthday card with V & P skirrels on it the gift of an island boat trip was best postponed until the following day when we could more fully enjoy it! With that in mind we bought masks and snorkels and headed to Ton Sai Bay for a gentle swim and a birthday cocktail.
Whilst Paula lounged like a lizard in the sun, Vikki went to the bar and ordered her a 'Monkey Smile' and when the waiter handed it to Paula ten minutes later it looked more like monkey jizz in a coconut..
With the weather not so great and our continued blowing of running noses we were trying hard to make the best of the day. So with that we took a walk along to what we thought was Long Beach (we later found out it wasn't long beach at all) and Vikki went off for a snorkel leaving Paula to soak up the much improved afternoon rays with a Chang.
After a couple of hours we had had enough and began to head back stopping in the bayside Carlitos Bar for a drink with a view across to Phi Phi Ley.
We went back to the room and had some chill out time before we changed and headed to the Irish Bar across the road for two birthday buckets of Thai Whisky with red bull. Hauling the buckets upstairs to a balcony table it wasn't long before Vikki took a funny turn and had to take herself off to the toilet for a little bit of 'alone time'!
With Vikki having to red card herself and go back to the room for a lie down Paula remained in the bar to finish the buckets of Thai whisky alone. Happy Birthday!
With a night out off the cards Paula headed back to the room shortly after with pizza slices and with that we settled in to watch a nice Australian cookery show....living the dream!!
Vikki was gutted and promised Paula a birthday +1 day tomorrow with lots of special treats...Paula dribbled Thai whisky as she dreamed of the extended birthday fun...
