Am I a sucker or what? Mind you, I have beed drinking a bit today, so that may be explaining why my head is spinning a bit right now. Well down to business: So here I am, minding my own business, sitting in a bar, not chatting up any girls and what walks up to me? A very nice girl of course. Doh!.... I am playing a little with her, when she asks for my name, I tell her: My name is Ya! ....But thats a Thai name? Oh it is? Where do you come from? Im from Isaan. She looks at me like Im taking the piss on her, which of course I am, so I just starts laughing a bit at her..(Kind of like an ice breaker, I like to think of it, but do I really need an icebreaker, I keep asking myself everytime I have used it? I dont know, maybe it's just my playfull nature.) Anyway we sit and talk a bit and I fess up to having rented a room in Patong for a year and being from where I am and all that. So she says that she was born and raised in Kathu, lost both parents in the Tsunami, didnt talk to anyone for 3 months, then moved to BKK, where she now works in a bar, where she plans to save up enough money for a business (That she told me much about, wont go into detail on it, but it actually sounds ok) She needed to get away from Phuket, because of bad memories etc. and decided to go to BKK and become a Bargirl. Sucker that I am, I actually believe her, and I get a bit sad of her story and all. And she feels sorry for me, and that she put her story on me and all. So we play a little pool and I barfine her, so she can play pool (Apparently according to the rules of the bar, she can not work (Pull customers in, get lady drinks) and play pool at the same time) So I decided to barfine her so we can play a little pool. Oh yeah, by the way, she beats me. So after that has gone on, I have somewhere along the way told her I was planning to go to Soi Cowboy tonight, so I decided now is time for me to leave. But something in me tells me she is a genuinely nice girl (Bargirl and all) so I tell her, when she is ready to set up her business in Phuket, she should call me, because I plan to live here for a long long time... So we swap numbers and I leave the bar. Here I am in the hotel room, just getting ready to go to Soi Cowboy and this urge to tell someone about it comes over me... All things equal, depending on who said what at what point in time in our conversation, she could be setting me up, but somehow I think she is genuine. Well, am I just another sucker or what? Edited to add: Not sure where to put this, so I put it in Nightlife. This is in Bangkok, but also touches nightlife and relationships with bargirls, so put I put it here, as I'd proberbly get more input here than in the non-phuket sections. Sorry Mods.
