Wanderlust: 4D3N Phuket Travelogue - Day 4

It's like towards the end of April 2015 and i have yet to complete the Phuket travelogue which happened last December. I'm even back from my recent Hong Kong trip already, LOL I figured out that before i can even write about my trip to Hong Kong, i have to finish this travelogue first. So without further ado, here's the very last post for the 4D3N Phuket Travelogue! Then again, nothing much happened on the last day because our flight was in the late afternoon so we had only a couple of hours to ourselves before heading to the airport... I would say this is one of the more relaxing overseas trip i ever had. There was good food, good accommodation, good company, lots of relax time, what more can i ask for?

Woke up for complimentary resort breakfast. Having the same thing again and again for the 3rd morning in a row but i'm not complaining one bit. In fact i wished i can have buffet breakfast every day, HAHHAHAH *dream mode on* LOL
 photo shop.jpg~original
Since we had a few hours, we decided to take the complimentary resort shuttle to mall to do some last minute shopping, see what we can get with our remaining Thai bahts. I kinda forgot what we got in the end but i supposed we got some souvenirs and food from the supermarket. Wait, I remember buying all the different flavors of Pretz back, LOL

Went back to our hotel after shopping to re-pack our luggage and we decided to do a little tour around our resort.  Apparently the place is quite big but we never really explore the other areas. I would highly recommend Deevana Patong Resort & Spa! Not exactly the cheapest but i would say it's damn worth it. Especially if you get a deluxe room with private jacuzzi like us! (That is if you intend to spend time in your room, if not then don't even bother. HAHAHA)

On top of the pool right outside our room (that comes with a bar) we found another pool at another side of the resort! It was filled with so many ang mo when we found the pool, LOL In my mind i was like, "so that's where they all are..." HAHAHAHA I only see them during breakfast! After checking out of our awesome room, we stayed at the lobby for some cakes while waiting for our car to pick us up to the airport. I will miss returning to our huge and comfortable room!!!!

Had Burger Kind before boarding the plane back to Singapore. Look at our sad faces :(

 photo end_1.jpg~original
By the time we arrived back in Singapore, it was already night time. I think we managed to get really good timings for this trip. It's like we arrived in the noon on the first day, and our return flight is in the late afternoon and arrive back in the night. I think it's the most ideal timing for air flights! All in all, i would say we really enjoyed ourselves throughout the 4 days and even till today, we will randomly mentioned how we missed the relaxing days in Phuket where we just lie on the beach for the entire afternoon, practically doing nothing. Alright, that's it for my 4D3N Phuket travelogue post!

Next up - Hong Kong!

Wanderlust: 4D3N Phuket Travelogue - Day 3

There seem to be a trend when it comes to doing up travelogues. It's like whenever i finishes one travelogue, i'm most likely departing for my next trip really soon. In this case, i'm traveling to Hong Kong next Friday! Without further ado, here's Day 3 of my seriously overdue Phuket travelogue which happened last December! Just in case you missed the previous Day 2 post for whatever reason, here's the LINK to it. Like i mentioned before in the past 2 post, this getaway trip has no itinerary because we wanted it to be relaxing, basically no rush factor. For Day 3, we decided to spend the first half of the day at the beach! Just sun-bathing under the sun, and also to try out para-sailing for the first time! :D
 photo selfie_1.jpg
#Selfie to start off the morning before breakfast! I  Phuket tee which i got from my previous trip!
 photo breakfast_1.jpg
Love the buffet breakfast spread at our Deevana Resort, can never get bored of it. What i normally do during hotel breakfast buffet would be to grab everything that i want to eat, plates after plates and finally sit down to finish everything. I'm always surprised at my morning appetite when i'm overseas, LOL In SG, i normally skip my breakfast :|
 photo beach1.jpg
The awesome thing about our resort is that they provide towels, beach mat and a bag in every room for their guest to bring along to the beach, really thoughtful. Patong beach is about 15 mins walk from our resort but we took the free shuttle bus over! Got ourselves a nice shady spot, rented a mini umbrella (100 baht i think) bought drinks and laze around taking photos. Definitely one of the highlights of this trip because it was so relaxing with nothing to worry about.
 photo parasailing.jpg
Para-sailing was one of our main objectives of this trip so after we lazed around, we decided to ask around for the price and being tourists, we got quoted quite an expensive price so we tried to bargain till about 1300 baht (SGD$55) before we come to a mutual agreement. The initial quote was about 2000 baht/person (SGD$84) if i remember correctly! Super kua zhang please. We took turns to be on the boat to help each other take photos and Jing long even brought his Go-Pro camera up along with him! A bit scary though. Imagine you panic then fling the whole Go-Pro into the water, HAHHAHAHA! Para-sailing was an amazing experience, it feels as though you are flying. At one point in time they even lower you down till your feet touches the water before lifting you up again! The whole experience lasted about 15 mins.
 photo beach2.jpg
After the para-sailing experience, we continued to laze around to dry ourselves, got more drinks and ice cream. took more photos before deciding to head back to our resort hotel to wash up. This is the first time i enjoyed myself so much by doing practically nothing and just lying down at the beach. I think it can never happen back in Singapore though...

Walked back to our resort from Patong Beach, got a couple of smoothies along the way and instead of resting, we dived straight for the pool! There is an awesome pool bar where you can order drinks and they will bill it to your room's bill. Sounds pretty cool sitting beside the pool enjoying a drink, LOL (Did not order any as the drinks were kinda pricey...)
 photo pool.jpg
Bought goggles from the supermarket the night before so that we can take underwater shots with the Go-Pro inside the swimming pool, LOL. Apparently none of us can open our eyes in the water. Took like a gazillion underwater shots but decided not to spam them in this travelogue, So considerate right. You guys will probably just scroll through them lor!

As for our  night plans, i intro-ed to Jing long and Jiaqi this famous Simon Cabaret show which features a group of transsexual performing a musical in various genres/ cultures. Watched it the previous time when i was in Phuket and i thought it's not bad. Managed to get VIP seats at quite a decent rate after bargaining at one of the street booths, LOL
 photo show.jpg
At the end of the musical, the performers will line up outside the theater for you to take photos with them. Then again, you must give them min. 100 baht (SGD$4) tips for each of them. Some of them really try to squeeze into your photos even though you might not want them to and they expect you to give them the tips as well. Like you see the photo of Jiaqi above, she only wanted to take photo with the girl on the left but the right one just join in casually. In the end have to tip both of them, LOL In the end, Jing long and i took with one of the prettier and most popular one. MUAHAHA

Since it was our last night in Phuket, we decided to queue for the highly raved No. 6 restaurant that everyone say must try. It was raining that night so the queue wasn't that long. Queued for about 15 mins i think and got a table. Honestly speaking, the food was pretty decent, but nothing really special to me but it's very affordable for authentic thai food :)
 photo end.jpg
Bought some snacks along the way back to our resort, and took out the drinks that we bought at the supermarket. Spent the night eating and chatting till late. Last night in Phuket. I think we met our objective to make this trip a relaxing one, it's like a "healing" getaway for me from all the stress. Got an awesome accommodation, my 2 best friends, cheap food and drinks, and an array of relaxing activities. What more can i ask for!

Before i end this Phuket day 3 post, I just wanna share this site with you guys which enables you guys to earn cashback while shopping online!

GRUB at Bishan Park!

This photo folder titled "Grub" has been sitting on my desktop for the longest time. Let me see, i think the photos were taken in December last year just before Christmas? I finally decided to do up a short post on my visit to Grub! When i say short post, expect it to be really short because i kinda forgot the details. It's like 4 months ago leh. I'm also not a professional food blogger so i can only comment whether the food is nice or not nice. HAHAHA Anyway i have been wanting to visit Grub for the longest time but was too lazy to travel all the way to Bishan just to have it. FINALLY!!!!!!

From the top: Churros ($9) Mentaiko Fries ($9) Crispy Fish Burger ($14) Grub Double Cheese burger ($18). Supposed to have one more burger which Angie had but i cannot remember/ figure out which burger is that but never mind, HAHA Honestly speaking, the food was pretty average but i quite like the alfresco dining ambiance and the place is located like right in a park. I wished there is a place like this in Pasir Ris. I would want to come back to Grub for brunch though!
