4 Day 3 Nights Phuket getaway: Day 4!

The previous post i ended off with a photo taken with lady boys from the Simon Cabaret. Anyway, i realised i got "cheated" by them. #FML I didn't see the sign that says "Tipping 25 Baht each" so when they asked 50 baht from me each i gave it to them lor. Neh, This two below lor:

ACTUALLY i just wanted to take photo with the one in the middle (the boobs like spilling out, LOL), but then the one on the left just suka suka anyhow-ly come and join in the photo, 3 of us lor.

Tourist taking photos with the other performers! They all dress until very kua zhang!

This photo cost me 100 Baht. But i don't regret giving them the tips. 100 baht to us is like $4, but to them it might be a lot. I've seen documentaries, and i think their life is not that easy. Especially the 'transformation' part into a girl. I wish i took more photos though, i don't mind paying them lor.

BFF Nurul with them! I think both of them quite happy to take photos with us, LOL

Just when i thought 100 baht was too much, i think Chris gave them like 200 baht! LOLOLOL
(spot that hand on his waist, he like a happy boy only, heehee!)

The one is the pink dress caught my attention the most throughout the whole show. I think she is the prettiest amongst everyone there. If she is a real girl, confirm ALOT of people will go for her one.

Here's another photo i took with her with someone else! She damn sweet looking...

This one is also another that caught my attention! Very pretty also!!! I don't know why i never go take photos with those that caught my attention. /regret. In the end go take with those two that i don't even know whether they got appear on the stage during the show anot, LOL! Oh wells...

If you watched 'Burlesque', you will know that she's portraying Cher. Nicely done (:

Last photo of the lady boys!

Overall, the show was quite an experience. Some of them were pretty obvious that they were guys "previously" but there are those that totally you won't expect them to be lady boys. They are so perfect that you wished your girlfriend look like them, LOL! One way to identify would be to hear their voice, that's something it's difficult or cannot be change. Should have took more photos! :(

Went to a restaurant after the show to have our dinner! Finally on the last night in Phuket, some authentic thai food like tom yum soup, pineapple rice etc! Very delicious and not expensive at all!

Went back to Bangla street to experience their night life once again!

While walking along the street, it's common to be stopped by guys who will offer you 'FREE Ping Pong show' at their bar. It's hard to explain what the show is really about, it's basically a famous show where females will use their erm... private part to 'shoot' things like ping pong balls etc. O.O

Even though it sounds like it's free, they expect you to buy drinks from their bar while watching and their prices are exorbitant! Anyway, that's what i heard from my friends. However, WE DID NOT GO FOR THE SHOW (although i'm quite curious about it, plus there are females with us, not very nice.)

Those 2 storey bars will have these bar girls pole dancing, trying to entice customers!

From the outside, you can actually see the inside of the bar and you can see girls pole dancing on table tops while the customers are drinking as seen in the above photo. Some like no strength one!

Remember i showed this photo in my Day 1 post and i said this is one of the more popular bar because of the crowd gathered outside? Well, it's because of these 3 women on the table:

The focus is one on the left wearing black and the one on the right in gold.

Apparently, people are gathering outside this particular bar is because of the FREE SHOW. Once in awhile, as the two women are dancing, they will then randomly drop the front part of their dress, revealing their breast to the crowd! Then all the ang mo will go high, LOL! I was quite shocked.

Not only that, once in awhile, they will slowly lift up their dress to reveal that they are not wearing any panty, and show the crowd their... erm... you know. This is the kind of night life you can expect to see in Phuket. Damn crazy but exciting. Quite an EYE OPENER for me, HAHAHAHAHA

Since it's already the last night in Phuket, we spent our remaining money on buying souvenirs home for our friends and family. Bargaining was fun at Phuket! I realised when they ask you to quote a price, don't give them face, just pom and give them like half the actual price and slowly rise. If you not happy, just leave but normally they will give in. You happy, they also happy (:

It's finally the last day in Phuket. The past 3 days has been quite an experience.

Nothing much on the last day as we are taking the morning flight back to Singapore. Woke up, packed our luggage, clear the room and getting ready to check out of our hotel. Transport to the airport was arranged since we booked the Phi Phi tour package on the very first day. Going home!

Air Asia back to Singapore from Phuket!

This marks the end of my Phuket travelogue, hope you guys enjoyed reading it!

This trip was really an eye opener for me. As i said before, every of my overseas trip (not like i've been to alot of countries but still!) has been a shopping trip for me but this Phuket trip was rather unique. Spent most of the time outdoor, even the shopping centers has no effect on me! LOLOLOL

If i have a chance, i would still visit phuket someday (I still have 4 unused vouchers!) Maybe to snorkel again, or go for the Simon Cabaret show and take more photos this time, or simply go to the beach, rent a chair and read a book under the sun. Till my next travelogue, ciaos.

P/s: The crazy thing is, i flew to Hong Kong 2 days later :|
