Just came back from Koh Samui...was there for 4 days but didnt really
enjoy the trip...
As expected, the resort I stayed in was full of caucasians and I think me
and my spouse were the only Asians. The resort's beach chairs were quite
limited and those ang mohs always "choop" the beach chairs with their
personal belongings (slippers, towels...etc) and then disappeared for days !!
So those ppl who want to have some tanning and didnt manage to "choop"
the beach chairs will have to lie on the sand beach while those slippers and
towels lie comfortably on the beach chairs.
Then the next day, we saw the same things laying on the same beach
chairs again. Apparently the owners had left their personal belongings
there overnight just to reserve the beach chairs.
On the third day, we really buay tahan liao when we saw those things still on
the beach chairs, so we asked the resort staff to either collect those things
from the beach chairs or provide us with more chairs. The resort staff bo pian
have to collect and safe keep those things and let us have the beach chairs.
Then when we were enjoying our sun tanning on the beach chairs, the
owners of the slippers and towels finally decided to come out from their
hibernation and confronted us "what are you doing on my beach chairs? "
(yeah, as if they were really "their" beach chairs, not the resort's)
We took a look at them but continued to lie there not moving cos too lazy
to open our mouths to argue with these kind of ppl, so the rude couple have
to LL walk away and I guess they went to complain to the resort staff.
So our way of "chooping" seats in the hawker centres by using a pack of
tissue is really nothing compared to their way reserving beach chairs.
And who said Asian/Chinese the only one who is kiasu ?!
And I will rather go to Redang next time, so much better than Koh Samui.
