|Morning sketch. View from outside my room in Casa Jip, Patong, Phuket. I've always loved the power cables running along and outlining the city line!|
|Fellow sunbathers... good day.|
|Always love Au Bon Pain.|
|These two Russian ladies from St Petersburg came over to look at my sketch and we had a good laugh. She insists that she's smaller (i.e. slimmer) than depicted in the picture and is drinking milk. I agreed: it's milk made from barley, wheat and hops.|
- It was my first time to Phuket;
- It was my first flight on a budget airline (AirAsia);
- It was my first overseas trip with Terrel;
- I came back just days before the Boxing Day Tsunami.
I love the place - the locals are so warm and friendly. The culture is so free and easy, live and let live. AND I have yet to find a place where you can go from beach to shops to shopping mall all within minutes of each other.
Yes, I love Phuket. Don't be surprise if one day, I should retire on that island with my own ocean view bungalow while running a B&B-cum-bar.
