Another Early Start,

as I am off to the dentist,

 so straight on with today's post, we made our way past the coffee seller,

 and the side entrance to TukCom,

 crossing Pattaya Tai,

 and into Soi Bukaow,

 to go to the Tuesday and Friday day market,

 lots of produce for sale,

 I also had a look at the aquatic stall,

 which had a few nice,

 Siamese fighting fish, (Betta splendens),

 they are called fighting fish,

 because two males will fight for territory, their part of the stream or pond they live in, but these have been selectively breed for their colour and large fins,

 back to farm produce with pineapples, melons and bananas,

 black and white rice,

 and here white and black mice,

 a quick look at the permanent aquatic shop,

 and back over the road,

  to the coffee stall and home,

 in the evening glad rags on,

 and we were out to Central Festival,

 outside street stalls,

 have taken over the entrance, 

 and on the 6th floor,

 this was where we were going,

 it sounds strange, but then down the escalators,

 to the Edge restaurant, we had a table booked for 6.30,

 before we started to eat,

 I had a quick look around,

 at some of the, 

 dishes to tempt us,

 there was a bar-b-q for seafood,

 and a number of heated dishes,

 Diana's favourite, pizza!

 and a carvery with tonight beef and lamb,

 lots of condiments,

 as I passed this cooking station I was so reminded of Brighton pier where there is a fresh doughnut stall, the smell was just so delicious both here and there,

 there were just,

 so many desserts to tempt us,

 talk about spoilt for choice,

 and of course the two chocolate fountains,

 sushi anyone?

 well maybe latter but on my way back to the table, a glass of bubbly,


 Diana had a quick look outside,

 not many dinners there as a storm front was moving in,

 the islands in the distance hidden by falling rain,

 this view from the outside dinning area,

 and looking down, 

 this seating area looked so nice, but not today, 

 on to our meal, a selection of cold cuts and salmon for myself,

 some cheeses later,

 after our first course I went outside,

 the sky really grey now, 

 one of the restaurant/disco ships in the bay as bright as ever,

 but the sky was not,  

 pizza for Diana,

 another glass of bubbly for myself, 

 sushi and shrimps for myself, 

 rock lobster and sea bass in banana leaves for Diana, 

 followed by more pizza,

 and you have guessed it,

 a dessert dish,

 it seemed a shame not to have a top up as one of the charming waitresses passed us,

 for myself, to the barby!

 rice, pad Thai and three huge prawns,

 and a change to red wine,

 Diana looking as beautiful as ever,

 the wine waitress was back,

 next Diana was,

 looking at,


 there was just so many,

 to chose from,

 oh the agony of choice!

 and we must not forget the fresh doughnuts,

 for myself on to my main course,

 I was so full, well we both were, 

 by now it was late,

 I am not saying we were the last to leave, but we were pretty close! 

 a few pictures,

 on the way out,

 this is the corridor that leads to the restaurant,

 and lifts to the hotel above,

 we went for the Friday evening buffet, but there are other day time options,

outside the mobile bars had set up shop, but for us a taxi home, a nightcap and we were off to bed.
