Yes yes, the hungry blogger is back! 

In a sense, I don't even really qualify myself as a "blogger," as the term usually describes a person who keeps and updates a blog..." But heck, now that I am no longer occupied by table settings, dress changes, color themes and other wedding madness, I finally have some "me" time to concentrate on my favorite activities: eating and writing. 

To make up for the months of disappearance, I hope my honeymoon details will suffice. I will keep it F-Rated, of course. F for food. ;)

As some of you may know, the husband (now THAT will take some getting use toand I spent 6 fine days/5 lovely nights on the beautiful, fun and funky island of Koh Samuieast coast of the Kra Isthmus in Thailand.  

The perfect honeymoon spot, the island offers something for everyone. For the lazies (like me!), Koh Samui has beautiful white, sandy beaches and tranquil pools where you can read, nap and tan for hours without ever feeling restless. To spoil yourself even more because you deserve it, arrange a long Thai massage set up right on the beachfront!

For those who are more adventurous and not afraid of the outdoor heat, Koh Samui also has plenty of water activities, elephant rides, crocodile shows, bungy jumping, horseback riding, boxing shows, full moon/half moon parties and touristy locations to visit like The Big Bhudda, Namuang Waterfall, and my favorite, the "Secret Bhudda Garden" where we blasphemed the sacred Thai gods by throwing up fives and peace signs behind their holy statues for our memory sake. 

I also highly recommend renting a scooter for a day to discover the island all by yourself. If you're not good with maps, make sure to grab along someone who does :)
And I dont know if this happens to you but many times, when I go on vacations, there's always ONE thing that could've been better - the hotel, the service, the people, the food.... But this time around, I enjoyed every bit of my dear Samui, especially the meals. From lunch to dinner to midnight munchies,  even the drinks and fruits were outstanding! I'm sure breakfast was just as good but being on vacation mode, I slept through my daily snooze button and let my husband enjoy the mornings to himself. 

Whether you crave American, Australian, Italian, Spanish, or Thai food, Koh Samui has it all. But unlike the time when I ordered salmon sushi in Dominican Republic and was given smoked salmon over a hard bulk of dried rice, the chefs here know their ingredients and how each type of cuisine should taste. Fresh, authentic, complex and always with a hint of sweetness and spiciness, it's almost impossible to order the wrong thing... 

There's always an end to a journey, but I will never forget Koh Samui. Nothing will ever beat (affordable) fancy dinners under the starry skies, right on the beach, accompanied by live music and gentle breeze. As the evening tides softly hit against the white sands and coral reefs, a lighted lantern will pass you by, flying higher and higher into the night, filled with the romantic wishes and whispers of the lovers around you. 

You can't help but fall in love all over again...

Corinna - I definitely recommend Koh Samui. It's decent price, full of activities, delicious food, romantic atmosphere and perfect for vacationing all year round. And no, no honeymoon babies quite yet!

Jane - Thank you so much for your lovely comment. Will continue putting more work into my writing :)
