Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan

Succumbing to the whims of the masse, I joined a group of about 50 of my classmates to attend the Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan, Thailand.
If you're an early 30's workaholic, the Full Moon Party sounds like a semi-touristy of cultural experience and a great opportunity to enjoy a night out doors on the beach. But, if you're an early-20's overweight-substance-abusing-Australian, you'll know that the Full Moon Party is a chance to meet up with all of your friends and do things that you wouldn't think of telling your mother about.

The first clue that this is a soulless night of mayhem is the plethora of booths selling alcoholic drinks in buckets.
Fortunately, I was surrounded by many friends whose interests were closer to my own, which meant the fun was not entirely lost. One nice thing about traveling in a group this size is that you can rent out entire restaurants for your own purpose.
And when it comes to a night of fun on the beach, you can make your own party.
Of course, I didn't need to come all the way to Thailand to enjoy the company of my classmates. Then again, they don't have sunrises like this in Singapore.

Asian street vendors have the best marketing slogans I've ever seen. They're entrepreneurial and not apparently laden down with too much false advertising law.

That's a classic pic with both jesus' favourite buckets and fucking ____ buckets night next to each other.
