This past Saturday, the Super English team gathered at a great restaurant called Anothai. I think it’s probably the first time any of us have been there. It’s a bit of a trip out there–all the way down to the highway near Big C, near the outskirts of town, but worth every second of the drive! It’s safe to say we dined on some of the best dishes I’ve had since living in Surat. My particular favorite was the green chicken curry with roti! Delicious! Of course, I was running on Thai time and had the directions. Naturally, it’s the appropriate time for my phone to not work, either!! Luckily, the caravan of teachers on motorbikes weren’t too late to enjoy the festivities!
We also welcomed two new team members, Cati and Aleya, to our staff! They’ll be starting at the International School next week. It was nice to have a comfortable, relaxed environment to hang out and enjoy one another’s company outside of school. I know we all get busy with our day to day schedules and individual activities outside of the workplace, but it’s nice how we all come together and support one another. It’s important we show support for one another while being so far from home. Next time the rest of the teachers from the International School will be able to join us, as they were traveling back from visits home.
The night concluded with plenty of laughs, wine/whisky flowing, and a good time. Some of the teachers went to a local pub that’s become popular, Feel Good. Not sure how long the evening lasted, as I think people were well full and feeling merry!
We’re all looking forward to our next get together–the much anticipated pool party in August!
