Again We Are Only Making One Post Today,

as we are off early to immigration,

yesterday we popped over to the FedEx office in Naklua, a few hundred yards going up the hill towards Naklua from the Dolphin roundabout, the office is on the right-hand side, the first thing we noticed was that there is now no parking out side, the space where we used to park on the road is now a bus stop,

this is the sign to look out for,

 and the bicycles on the pole,

 the office, 

 is at the rear of a courtyard,

 normally a fountain is operating here, but with Christmas just around the corner, now a Christmas tree, 

 this is the second thing about this trip that we found out, I had thought the office opened at 08.00 but it does not open until 10.00, 

 during the afternoon we popped over to see Mr. Tony and Booie,

and with Booie's talent at growing produce, gave us a hand of bananas and this huge double headed pineapple,

 in the evening it was,

 glad rags on, 

 and we were off to the Momento Beach, it is on Soi 8 off of the Thepprasit Road,

 we made our way past the bar,

 to the seating area around the pool, 

 we were not sure if it was going to rain, so we sat undercover,

 firstly an amuse bouche,

 and a bottle of bubbly, 


 Diana's starter arrive, 

 a Caesar salad, it looked and was huge, and this was the small one! 

 then my starter arrived, 

 the small cold cuts,  

 I had to have another glass, 

 we had a long break between courses, and were watched by one of the local cats, 

 then heavens above, the main courses arrived, Diana decided on a chicken kebab,

 I decided on the prawn one,

 a quick pose, 

 then on to the food,  

 the prawns were the biggest I have ever been served, 

 I should also mention that under the kebab there are some vegetables, I chose sautéed potatoes, Diana went with chips, 

 so shells off,

 and there they were,


 now time to relax before our desserts,

 a tiramisu for Diana, which came with it's own coffee and vanilla ice cream,

 which she thoroughly enjoyed,

 for myself the baked Alaska, 

 the presentation spot on, 

 note to self, let the flames die down before eating, 

 and it was so delicious, 

 I have to say it, this is one of the very few restaurants where the desserts tempt us both so much that we have one each, praise indeed, the bill came to just a tad over 2,700 baht, including an extra glass of wine, what a meal! 

we, our I should say I, rounded off the meal with 2 complimentary drinks, then home, feet up, a few quiz shows and we were off to bed.
