Goodbye to January 2016

Goodbye to January 2016

It's time to say Goodbye to January 2016, the first month of this year is about to be done and over with.

Let's start with the weather, it was a mixed bag, there were plenty of nice and sunny days but also plenty of stormy and wet days and for Thai meanings, even cold days. Although, fair enough, nothing like the 16C that came along in Bangkok and Northern Thailand, that would even have been cold for me, after having lived here for 16 years.
Especially the storm that raged over Koh Samui 25th January was noteworthy!
The last couple of days have been nice and fairly sunny again. I would measure this January fairly average for a January on Koh Samui.

Goodbye to January 2016

Fisherman's boat at Plai Laem

On a personal level, I was busy on Koh Lanta for a PADI IDC and spent a good two weeks there. A lot of running was done this month, both on Koh Lanta and Koh Samui, I'm attempting to run my third full marathon ever 14th February in Surat Thani and I got 290km's on the clock this month.

Great food was had at two of our fave eateries on the island, Kobori, a Japanese restaurant in Maenam and Juzza Pizza in Fisherman's Village,

A good month for me and I'm looking forward to February, hopefully less bills to pay and a good marathon time in the making!

Overall though, it was not as busy as the previous two events, last month's Samui Green Market was buzzing, this month it seemed a bit more quiet.

Samui Green Market January 2016 some of the produce available today, German bread and German sour dough bread in the front and Sweet Sisters in the middle

We got our dose of German bread and sour dough bread and enjoyed a few drinks and chatting to some people. As always it was very relaxed and I hope the Samui Green Market can establish itself. There's a location now and this is the third or fourth month running.

Storm rages over Koh Samui

Storm rages over Koh Samui


A real storm rages over Koh Samui today and it is having an impact! The beaches are being pounded by big waves and floods are being observed all over the island. However, this time not only from the rain but also from ocean water.

Our children had to be picked up from the Bophud school, after we received a phone call from the teachers that ocean water had entered the school. The ocean is a couple of hundred meters away from the school!

Storm rages over Koh Samui

Ocean water crashing onto buildings

Here are a few pictures from the situation earlier today in Nathon. The ocean boulevard is swept over by waves, at times the water gets pretty high!

Storm rages over Koh Samui

Nathon boulevard

It seems that the boulevard wall might be partially disintegrating, as people carry bricks away from the ocean side of the boulevard.

Amazingly, yesterday the Samui Ride & Run event could happen without any of natures forces playing around!

I was supposed to get back home today, but got sidetracked for one night to Phuket, where I am right now and where it's nice and sunny but with a very strong wind blowing.

This may be a good thing, since the Seatran ferry coming from Koh Samui had to turn around once it reached Don Sak, since the ferry couldn't dock due to the high waves. People on the ferry were even wearing life jackets!

For tomorrow I have secured a reservation on a ferry bound for Koh Samui, the weather forecast is looking slightly better, so I'm crossing my fingers that the ferry will run tomorrow and any possible queues are being dealt with before I arrive.

At this moment I have no updates about Koh Samui airport but I can imagine that there may be delays or cancellations.

Storm raging over Koh Samui

Nathon boulevard seems to be disintegrating 

As already mentioned, tomorrow morning there should still be a strong wind but around noon things should start to slow down and slowly get back to normal.

Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon

Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon


Just before the weekend a new and reconstructed statue at Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon has been officially opened with a ceremony.
It's the second change within a few years. In 2012 there was a ceremony for a complete new shrine and as the previous link shows, with a big red head in front of the shrine.

Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon

Frontal view of the renewed statue at the Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon

Well, this head has now been replaced with the new statue that is in the pictures in this post.
What I still dearly remember is the original old, wooden Guang Yu shrine, check out this post from June 2008. I was well impressed with the shrine and it surroundings and to be quite honest, I liked that old wooden shrine a lot more than the new one.

Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon

A side view of the renewed statue at the Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon

Having said that, the new statue is impressive and looks good, however, the atmosphere on the old shrine was unique and has not been caught in my humble opinion with the new concrete shrine complex. How impressive it may look like. 
Guess it's called progress, as with plenty more things around the island.

Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon

A rear view of the renewed statue at the Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon

The previous big, red head was impressive in it's right, but admittedly, this new statue has something going for itself and it's all part of Koh Samui history with a strong Hainanese link to the shrine.
The Chinese island of Hainan is where the original inhabitants, or at least a lot or most of them, originate from.

Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon

Inside the renewed Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon

This can be found back at the original Hainanese style of most of the original wooden houses around Hua Thanon and the restaurant next to the Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon, where you can find this restaurant,

Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon

The actual shrine at the Guang Yu Shrine in Hua Thanon

It's well worth a stop, if you drive by or are doing a trip around the island, in that case it;s almost a mandatory stop. There's a very different feel and vibe at this shrine compared to a traditional Thai temple, of which you can find many around the island.
