Sex and the City - in Haikou

A table of four ladies sat next to me at the elegant Sichuanese restaurant -- see blog below. Well it was apparent that it was a girls' night out -- as the night progressed they grew louder and louder, especially the lady in blue with her back facing our table. She started to complain about men, how the womanizing ones are mean at home, well duh. She talked so fast and so high pitched that it was rather annoying. Then she went to the restroom and came back with her face flushed red and stumbling a bit. As she sat down she blew her nose, with her BARE hand, and threw the yucky stuff onto the floor. I was just about to put a piece of the spicy kidney into my mouth and my jaw just dropped at the sight.

After further inspection, I found the culprit. Ten large bottles of beer for four ladies. Mind you, these are at least twice the size of regular single serving beer bottles.

The ladies talked more -- how their kids are growing uglier and uglier, etc. -- and then they ordered more drinks!
