The Traveling Noob: First Trip To Phuket
Woop woop!! Went to Phuket for the first time with Audrey last week.
I tell you I love all the travel deal promos that are popping up now..my whole 4D3N trip with return tickets + airport tax, accomodation at a decent boutique hotel and breakfast was $350 net per person.
If you do not know what I am talking about Google “Pontianak definition”. Okay but anyway, let us start on the travels shall we?
Aeroplane food!!! OMG…you do not understand how excited I get when I see the stewardess walking down the aisle with that trolley..to give me my edible present wrapped in aluminium foil ❤
We were so lucky to find “Mr Tu” which was right around the corner from my hotel for dinner. It was, by far, the best for cheap good Thai food in Phuket.
Rise and shine bitches!!
Gosh..we had 2 full day tours for this trip. Both were so active some more..
We woke up at 7.15am to grab some breakfast and headed to the lobby to wait for our transport at 7.30am.
Since Rachel, technically wasnt allowed to stay with us unless she paid extra, we sneaked her around and brought breakfast for her.
The waterfall was ice cold man..I dont know how anyone is swimming in this.
After that, we went for the Elephant trekking which included animal shows..honestly, I didnt enjoy this too much cos at the back of my mind, I was wondering if their owners were cruel to them.
I HAD to take a picture of this PRC’s slipper…who would wear this? Why were her fake fruits so bulbous..
Dinner time again!!! God, this is why I can never diet. Food excites me too much. It is a miracle I am not obese yet..
We met Chanel and her husband, Michael, at Karon where they were staying for dinner. There area was so nice and quiet away from the tourists and commercialism. BUT because it is less crowded, it was very hard to get a taxi or a tuk-tuk after midnight.
We are going to Phi Phi Island today 🙂
Dont let this pic fool you..it was not always blue skies.
We went to Maya Bay where the filmed The Beach but it was quite disappointing for me..so crowded with tourists.
But one thing is for sure, the water is damn clear..just look at the pic below!! I just hated how crowded it was..
Then comes this FOOL on our speedboat who couldnt tell the difference between swimming trunks and briefs.
He kept staying near the girls who were in bikinis..just letting it all hang loose in his Jockey briefs.
But I had to take this pic for…*ahem* a few friends of mine. I am sure you know why..
Next stop – Phi Phi Don for lunch!!
On our way there, we saw a ferry with a shitload of people making a stop for snorkelling. So, what did we learn from this pic?NEVER TAKE A FERRY TO PHI PHI..
No food photos..they were not very impressive compared to my street stall food.
Last stop for the day was some Khai island (forgot the name) for some snorkelling.
The wind was so strong coming back to Phuket, my hair was blown upwards completely.
Dinner was simple and a bit more posh..we went to a small cafe outside the hotel.
After that plate, we had to get more!
We went to check out J.J Plaza afterwards for some shopping…NOT WORTH IT DO NOT GO.
Tonight, Rachel slept at Chanel’s resort after they went for seafood. After 2 full days of activities, tonight I didnt wanna go out at all.
Audrey wanted to go out with them at first but by the time we headed to our room and watched a bit of Brothers & Sisters, she fell asleep -_-
Nooooooo!!!! I did not wanna go home at all..It felt so short. I had to have one last round of all my fav Thai food so we headed back to Mr Tu.
This Spicy Papaya Salad was, by far, the spiciest salad I ever had in Thailand and Singapore. It looked so deceiving 😦 I finished my whole bottle of water.
We managed to get some shopping done but not that much though..
After this, we headed for a massage and went back to the hotel for our transport.
Look at how near Audrey made me sit to our gate when we got to the airport..
We were 90 mins early for our flight man..and we were so hungry, we each changed SGD $2 to go buy some Dairy Queen hotdogs.
Sigh, we had to go back already..one last food shot of my wonderful aeroplane food 😀
