Anyways, after the long ride, we were absolutely famished, and we headed straight to the apparent local joint for breakfast/brunch @ Restoran Guan Hwat which is recognisable by its blue walls and hawk-like behaviour of customers waiting in line.
Satisfied and mildly buzzed from the coffee, we made our way to the paddy field to do a little exploration and trying not too act too much like a tourist who has never seen a paddy field. That was kinda hard, considering that only tourists would go and see the fields instead of going to work there! Having said that, the views at the fields were pretty awesome and somewhat invigorating.
Unfortunately, I didn't get to take many pictures while we were there as my fellow roadtrippers forbade me to! Well, I guess they had a fair reason as when we walked into the orchard, all the (male) workers stopped working and started to talk to us by asking our names, where our boyfriends were and if they could have our phone numbers! Talk about being bold! Being at the fruit orchard was way creepier than being in a dodgy Chow Kit road night club! If you can spot the topless male in the pic above, he was the boldest and offered us free fruit for our numbers...errm...no thanks! We quickly paid for our mangoes (which were super tasty, I might add) and went on our merry way out of the orchard!
With all that, we had such a hilarious ride back home recounting our adventures for the day and our run-ins with the Sekinchan folks. Having said that, we know that they meant no harm and it was all in good faith, in other words, they were (super) friendly!
