Island Getaway - Phuket, Thailand

May 30th - June 3rd, 2013 (5 Days 4 Nights)

End of last year, MAS had offered 50% rebates to redeem enrich points. We took the opportunity to redeem some of our points and got 6 return tix to Phuket (2 tix for nenek and cik nah). Then we bought an infant tix for Harraz.

During matta fair, we bought the 3D2N package from triways, which cost us RM399 for adult and RM360 for child. This package includes all; accommodation at 3* hotel, airport transfer, muslim meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner), town tour, and Phanga Bay - James Bond Island tour.

The journey started in early morning on May 30th. Our flight was scheduled at 930am. We drove our own car to KLIA and parked the car at the long term parking. We were charged RM159 for 5 days parking.

We arrived in Phuket at 945am (local time). Phuket time difference is -1. Our tour guide came late! 1 hour late! From the airport to Patong town, was about 45 minutes. Most of us slept through out the journey. We checked in at Arman Residence. The hotel serves halal food and have free wifi ☺. Ramai jugak orang M'sia duk hotel nie... 

After having lunch at the hotel, we went for the town tour. Our stops include Karon viewpoint, local silk screen t-shirt shop (they sell really cheap tshirts here!), cashew nut factory, bees farm, and monkey school. Later we had our dinner at Kusuma seafood, which is quite famous among Malaysians.

On 2nd day, we went to Phang Nga Bay for a long tail boat ride to James Bond island. Hayl was eager to mandi laut here. Tapi takdak sapa pun mandi kat sini! Takat main2 dkt gigi air je la... After James Bond island, the tour continued to other small islands.

James Bond Island

Next stop was at a fishing village, Koh Panyee. It is also known as Muslim floating village, due to the predominantly Muslim population. We had our lunch here at Panyee restaurant. After we got back from the island tour, we made one last stop at Gems gallery. Nak beli, tapi org ramai sgt, lama nak tunggu!

On the 3rd day, we checked out from Arman residence. We had arranged for a transport with the same travel agent, Phuket BlueSea travel and tours to transfer us from Arman Residence to Dusit Thani Laguna in Bang Tao. On the way to Laguna, we made quick stop at Jungceylon Mall (sempat la makan eskrem Baskin Robbins) and Harley Davidson outlet. We had our lunch at BangSanDuan Muslim Food. They serve the best tomyam! We even went to this restaurant again on our way to the airport before flying off the next 2 days.

Dusit Thani Laguna. Haha! This was the much awaited relaxing beach holiday, dedicated for our boys. Lepas dah penat berjalan sana sini, naik bot bagai, masa utk relax pulak! The boys were so looking forward to swim at the swimming pool and play at the beach.

Dusit Thani is situated in Laguna, West coast of Phuket. There are 7 hotels in the Laguna area. They have a shopping village as well, called Canal village. To find halal food here, we need to get to the Bang Tao town. It is about 5-10 minutes drive. Taxi costs 800 baht for round trip. The taxi driver took us to Sakeenah Restaurant. It is situated next to the Bang Tao mosque. The food are good and cheap :)

Days spent in Dusit Thani just to ourselves, attending the kids. They played at the Kids' Club, feeding the fish at the pond, and Hayl even tried to play petangue ;) We glad we made the trip. So, next trip... where to???

Awesome Weekend at Limastiga - 26th-27th April 2013

Last weekend, we got the opportunity to stay at Limastiga. Thanks a lot to my high school seniors (abang2 and kakak2) for inviting me and my family to join their escapade :) As some of us know, Limastiga is always fully booked! We secured our booking in November 2012. It was an awesome weekend, very enjoyable! Sampai hari nie pun masih tersenyum sorang2 bila teringat moments kat sana.

Hayl goes to school

Our famous Hayl (famous kah?) gonna be 4 year-old this year. So, we decided to enroll him to school. Hayl is very talkative, and a copycat. He has very good memory. He is more than ready to go to school.

Hmmm... tapi drama jugak on his first 2 days of school. On the first day, mama had to sit in the classroom through out the school period. On 2nd day, he cried (because mama waited outside the classroom) and later slept through out the school period.

But, he is ok now. He loves to go to school. Cuma pagi2 nak bangun tido tu ada manja2 sikit.

"Nak rest dulu"
"Mama, mandikan Hayl"
"Mama, pakaikan baju Hayl"

Anak lelaki, memang manja mama pun!

Well Hayl, it is already 4 months you are in school. So far not a single complaint we heard. So, you are enjoying your school! :) Our hope, you will learn a lot, expand your knowledge, and get to explore new experience.

Hugs and kisses Haylasyad!!☺♥♥
