20th May - Our flight is on 12:45 pm but we reached to the air port around 9:45 am. (I think on the way to air port was a bit too smooth on day even though nobody went to the new LCCT air port before. Well, it's better earlier than sorry) While we were there waiting, we had our breakfast at the local McDonald and took couples of picture there. (*I like 24 hours shop, that's why I took a photo under it. Wonder why I like 24 hours shop, perhaps because I used to be a late sleeper and at least there are 24 hours shops that I can go?!) When the time is around 10:45 am, we check in our luggage and waited there for our plane to come.
Our flight reach here around 12:30pm and we start boarding the plane around 12:45pm. While we're walking towards our flight, we noticed that they have a make over on their plane. (Yes, Manchester United picture was printed on it and I'm not one of their fans) On board, we found that the Boeing A320 was only 2 months old and they have this smoking air coming out from the wall. (Hey! I thought we're riding a non-smoking flight) (*Oh ya, smoking flight or steam flight? Haha)
Anyway, the flight took us around 1 hour to reach Phuket and we had our lunch on board. By the time we touch down, my sis already booked a taxi waiting for us. The taxi again took another hour from the air port to the hotel. By the time we reach the hotel, it was around 1:40 pm (Phuket is one hour slower before Malaysia time). After that, we met up my sis at the hotel lobby and check-in into our room. After putting our luggage at our hotel room, (It was a really nice room) (*I like the bathroom as it has 2 sliding doors. Haha..it's fast to get out from the secondary sliding door than the primary) We went down again to the nearby cafeteria and have an afternoon tea with my sister. After the tea time, my sis went back to work, so we went around the hotel and the beach for some photos. (*The wave was big and scary. I didn't even dare to stand near the sealine. It was also quite windy and foggy. But I still liked the weather and thought it was nice.)
Around 4 in the afternoon, we went back to the hotel to brush up and met up my sister again. My sister rented a white jeep and plan to take us around phuket.Our first stop is at the Nai Harn beach. We spent around 15mins there having our photo session. By the way, the weather in Phuket in May wasn't really good. The wave is big and the sky was cloudy most of the time. So, it seems we have to pass those other island trip. Anyway, after the beach, we went to the Cape Promthep for the sun set. As mentioned, the sun set wasn't quite visible due to the weather but we had a very nice coconut drink there. :D (*I like the way they eat the coconut flesh there. Unique! Cut out part of the coconut shell and use it as a spoon! Really creative! But i guess this is the caveman's way to eat.) After spend around an hour there, we headed to Patong town for dinner.
We reached to the famous patong street where the street went wild in the late night. Unfortunately, we reached there around 8pm so it wasn't crowded yet. We had our dinner at a small restaurant. Here is something i want to emphasise about. Even though the restaurant is small, but the food is taste really good. (After the trip, i went back and try out the thai food in malaysia because i miss them so much, the taste still taste not as good as the small restaurant.) Not mention the price which is quite reasonable even it's located in the town which flooded by the foreigners. (*Agree. thai food there is no doubt much more delicious and also the price - "nice and reasonable". Won't burn out your pocket!)
After meal, we walked around the town to get some souvienir. On our way back to the jeep, we saw a buch of westerners went nuts after they saw a Corrona mascot on the street. Especially the guy in between the mascot's legs! :D (*I like Patong Beach. It gives me an impression like the "lady's street" in HongKong. However, it does have its unique characteristic, like those "tiger" bars and the transsexual ladies (ah kuas). Just got so much to see there. :P Hehe)
it's about 10:00pm when we reached back to our hotel and rest for tomorrow trip. :P (*I didn't realise that we did so many things and went to so many places on that day itself. I didn't think I was that energetic! :P )
