Sick, Relaxed, and Scared

Later on Saturday afternoon, after eating a full Indian lunch from Mehmaan, we headed over to Ahman's apartment to take a short rest and drop our bag O' junk.

Chhimi and Namdrul decided to play NBA Playoffs on the PS2 station...of course, Chhimi played the Sacramento King's and Namdrul played the Dallas Mavericks. After about 15 minutes of playing, phrases of "Who's your Daddy?", "How you like that move?"...we all decided to heat out to the GV theaters to catch "Day After Tomorrow" since the boyz wanted to see it.

On the way to the theater, Tabitha and Chhimi got extremely sick. At one point, Tabitha had to stop at the skytrain stop and threw up. Yup! Not a very pleasant site. Thank goodness Chhimi had a little towel or else it would have been a big mess. We think it was all the combination of Bangkok "bottled" water, Oily - Fatty Indian Food, and stale smoke from Ahman's apartment that totally threw our bodies into shock. Namdrul and Ahman were quite gentlemen though. Ahman kept holding a seat for Tabitha on the Skytrain so she can rest. Namdrul went and got proper bottled water to make Tabitha feel better.

As for Chhimi, he had to throw up too at the GV Theater's VIP lounge. Poor Thing. He had to force himself twice. After a while, Chhimi felt a little better and had a sip of Sprite to calm his stomach. We think it's his body telling Chhimi physically to STOP EATING!

We met Ahman's girl-friend, Chuni, and her friend, Sonam at the GV Theaters. Of course, per Chhimi, we must watch one last movie in Bangkok VIP / Gold Class style. So we bought 6 tickets Gold Class to see "Day After Tomorrow". We all relaxed in the VIP lounge and received our "complimentary" drinks. However, we had to move because the Princess of Thailand was at the same theater and was coming out... :-P Sheesh! Royalty. Tabitha wanted to take a picture of the Princess so badly but the staff wouldn't allow us to go near that area!!

Anyways, as we said, we met Ahman's girl-friend, Chuni. She was quite nice but both she and her friend though Chhimi and I were brother & sister. Eewww! Bad Bad! Of couse, Tabitha did her usual 20+ questions on strangers to help them feel "at ease". Chuni and Sonam were quite good sports though. The 6 of us relaxed in the lounge for over 1.5 hours since Namdrul, Chhimi, and Tabitha didn't feel so good after lunch. Yikes! We take back on the recommendation of Mehmaan. Do not go there if you cannot handle 'very-rich' food.

The scared part is while watching the movie. There were some scenes that made us jump our seats. Tabitha and Chhimi were holding hands ["awwwww!"] and during one of the scary scenes, Tabitha accidentally squeezed Chhimi's fingers so hard that we heard a loud "SNAP!". Poor thing...Chhimi jumped like at least 1 feet from the very comfortable chairs....there may have been tears in his eyes. Oops!
