It's a party to celebrate full moon that is held in Koh Panghan, Thailand every month.
Thousands of people, most of them are young travelers from all over the world will come to this island.
Me and my two others Indonesian pals had been so excited planning to come to this craziest party in the world. We also knew that budget was one of the big issue for the three of us, so shameful. So we decided to come to the island only for the party itself a day before the party and would leave the island in the morning after the party. Hotel? Hmmm as what we knew all the hotel price will be freaking expensive during the full moon party, and because three of us had this issue of (arrghhh so annoying to mention it again!) so we chose just spend the night at the beach before and after the party while waiting for the morning ferry to leave the island. That was the plan.
But one of my so called friend was over excited about this party even before we left our city, Songkhla. He was like one of those little kids who eat too much sweet food and finally got too hyper active. Me and my other friend assumed that he was just having some kind of mental disorder that even the experts can't classify. Duh!
It was a long and tiring journey. We left Songkhla at 9pm on Friday. Took a 5 hours bus and 2hours ferry finally brought us safely to the island. During the journey we felt so sorry to see our boy friend who was still acting hyper and could not control himself. We kept reminding him to save energy because we knew that it was going to be more exhausted. But it did not work. Not to mention that he even fell from the stairs on the ferry because he was TOO hyper !!!

At 5pm we woke up and got ourselves ready.
The plan was to meet other Couchsurfing people at one of the bar. We stayed at the bar, played pool (though I did not know exactly what I was doing), did body painting and talked until 11pm. After that we headed to the beach for full moon party yaiiiiii !
But our hyper friend, I don't know what was going on with him, decided to walked at the beach first and left us the girls alone. So fine, I guess we also needed some time to get away from him. But trust me, that was the bad idea. As soon as he left us, we felt bad and thought it was not cool to enjoy the night without him so we tried to look for him around the beach. Looking for one person at the party was not an easy thing to do. So if you happen to come with your friends, stick to them during the party. Don't ever think to leave them because you will not want to be like chicken looking for his mother.
And guess what, when we called him, he said that he was too tired and just went back to the room to sleep. What the f***? Seriously?! Me and the other girl were angry and asked him to come again to the party.
So guys, I tell you know, if you want to come to full moon party, don't be like my friend, too hyper. Save your energy, unless you want to be too exhausted and can just stay at the hotel while others partying like hell.
Many silly things happened at the party.
The silliest one was to see my friend drank Ovaltine at the party. Duh Chocolate milk, hahaha.
And danced around the lady boys hahaha no way !! this part I will write in Bahasa: kita sih ngarepnya digodain ama si tuh bule2 cakep, tpi stlh bbrp lama joget koq ga ada yg godain kita sih, n pas liat sekeliling duh ternyata semuanya pada bencong and penyuka lelaki. Pantesan kita ga laku bu.. hahaha apes deh, akhirnya kita memutuskan untuk mengganti lokasi mangkal, dan syukurlah akhirnya kita berada di tengah-tengah orang normal and yaiiii ada juga yang godain. Amang tahe !!!
We stayed at the party until 3am.
Good times + crazy friends = amazing memories !!
That was the best night ever in Thailand.
