Crystal's traveling episode: 3 days in Phuket (Thailand)
I was back KL at 12.30am on Sun. Everything was returned on time except my mind and my heart are still in Phuket. I had a wonderful 3 days trip this time, i could say. I love the place so much that I couldn't want to come back KL :o(. Everything was fantastic. What should i say? See the photos to believe!
Day 1: We arrived Phuket airport at 7.30am in the morning (local time) which means i had to leave KL at 3.30 in the morning. The night before, i didn't sleep at all. Not because of i was too excited. It's because i didn't pack anything yet until 11.30pm after reaching home from practice session, lolz. Phuket in the morning was so fresh and clean with a strong sea wind. We quickly got into the bus was waiting outside and headed to Patong beach town. As it's still early and the hotel could only be checked in by 12pm, hence the tour guy took us for a breakfast and here our tour began.
Surprisingly, they served us with Malays foods cooked by Thai people. And the amazing thing is, people here know Bahasa Malaysia well it seems. They spoke to us by BM, served us with BM menu, lolz. I was damn tired and sleepy so i ordered "whatever could eat!". After breakfast, we started our first destination.
Cashew nut Factory===> Honey shop===> T-Shirt Factory====>The Wat Chalong- old monastery
The first stop: The Cashew nut factory. Now only i know how and where the cashew nut comes from: Here it is!
This is the Wat Chalong- the century's old monastery. A recent addition to the temple is a 61.4 meter high chedi containing the Pra Borom Sareerikatta relic, a piece of the Lord Buddha's bones brought over from Sri Lanka.
An open-air bar and restaurant where you can enjoy the live music, the nice seafood, the sea wind and the dance floor is waiting for you too!
Funny road sign! These types of road signs are quite popular there, lolz :D
So nice, the wind blowed my hair, hehehe. There is anothing thing about Phuket that you should miss out. It's the paradise of seafoods all kinds. God! All the lobsters, the prawns, the fishes are sooooo BIG. Se this! Shopping session came on da away of course :D. There are so many hot stuffs, slutty stuffs around there and they are all cheap. The bag i was wearing here costs only BAHT 169, means RM16.90. Crazy! I bought one for myself definitely but not this one. This bag is for blogging purpose only, hehehe....
The pinky Helly kitty shop! It was all pink, my Godness from the calculator the toys and all. I wanted to take them all home :(
I couldn't count how many shops we've visited but it was plenty enough to make my legs and feet are so damn painful and tiring. It was 2am there, however Patong town seem not want to sleep. I had to :o( The next morning, we gotta wake up so early at 7am to start another interesting tour. We walked back hotel around 2am plus but we didn't even have to think of being careful and cautious. We just laughed, talked and enjoyed. It was really safe, I must say!
