Today I went to Khao San Rd to find a cafe where I could peacefully study. I found it at The Fabulous Cafe and Cake shop.
When I walked in, ordered iced green tea, and found a nice table in the back. I realize I need a password to access the wifi so I go up to the counter again to ask, only to have all the male workers turn to stare at me and just to answer my simple question. Flattery #1
When the guy brings me my drink, he asks me if I wanted any dessert. I said of course and proceeded to order a Chocolate Silk cake that came with vanilla gelato. When he brings me my cake, he tells me, “I just wanted to say you’re really cute!” I smile and thank him and he goes off on his merry way and I turn back to my research. Flattery #2
Later on, he comes back again to give me a free sample of one of their smoothies. I thank him and turn back to my computer, only to have him ask me what my name was. But before he goes, I ask if I could order a glass of the blueberry/lychee smoothie, which was DELICIOUS.
He comes back with my smoothie and he asks whether I’m Korean/Chinese/or something else. I tell him that I’m actually American.
Anywho, two hours into my studying…it’s getting late so I go to pay my bill and leave. As I’m walking away, maybe like 3-4 minutes outside of the cafe…someone taps me on the shoulder. I look up in surprise to see the waiter. He had left his work to come chase me down to ask for my facebook name! He tells me that he wants to get to know me better. Flattery #3
But I have a boyfriend and tell him so and he walks away without saying anything. Still, I’m super flattered that a guy would chase after me to try to get my facebook name/number. Never had that happened. Also, he never charged me for that smoothie. But now that I’ve rejected him…can I still go back to the cafe?? I wanted to make it my study place.
ALSO…I went to buy pad thai for dinner. I found a one-baht coin in my food.
