phuket photo diary























Got back from Thailand this morning at 6:30am and it was utterly insane amazing. There are so many highlights from my trip like, the resort we stayed at happened to be the Australian Consulate. We befriended the representative and he took us out for awesome Japanese one night. His stories were so interesting. Like, some couple came over for their honeymoon and one night, the guy disappeared to sleep with Thai women. What an ass! Anyways, even though all the locals speak very bad english, they are sooo nice. One hour massages were like $15AUD and I had my first manicure since it was about $20! I saw fireworks every night since you can buy them on the street and going elephant trekking was awesome. I just had to duck under the powerlines 5cm above my head LOL. We met a nice taxi driver who then turned into our private chauffeur.

In Thailand the driving is dangerous since there are like 1000 people riding scooters but there is no road rage, the driving is extremely courteous! Also we befriended some mad dudes at our resort. One guy holds the UFC merchanising rights, one guy was a miracle doctor (literally) and the other restored traditional houses and buildings in China after the government knocks them down. He was in a few documentaries and such. Shopping wise, I bought a few goodies. Cheap Chanel nailpolish thanks to duty free and other lame things like false eyelashes, makeup, a laptop slip and jewellery. Oh did I mention that I got some Tiffany & Co and Mulberry for xmas? :) OH wait! I bought a pair of legit diamond earrings too. They weren't cheap, but definitely cheaper than anywhere else so I said.. why not? LOL.

I hope you all had an amazing xmas and nye. Thanks for all your comments; I was reading them in Thailand when I could get a chance :)
Kob Kun Ka!! (thank you)

It is even worst in the city as every kind of just do what they want. And lets not talk about the traffic. I got stuck in traffic for three hours one day. Otherwise, LOVE thailand.
