Well, it was fun and very eye-opening with the "lady-man" (man who becomes women..this is what they are called in Phuket), Loi Kratong festival (water festival), tan beach boys, motorcycle taxis, the weird food, thai massage, elephant ride, the bargaining during shopping, pole dancing and agogo clubs along the streets. Haha...yes yes a lot of things happened during that trip. The first thing we (my parents and I) did when we reached was the elephant ride. I got the huge mummy elephant that was so tall. I was so scared when I sat on it till my hands sweat and the Thai guy who sat on the elephant's head was so mean, he uses a rod with a sharp hook to pierce the elephant's ear to make it obey. I didn't get my elephant's name though, sadly but I did get pictures. :P
The next day we went looking for the right massage parlour to go to. I said 'right massage parlour' because the massage ladies are kinda scary, pulling any guys who walk past, into their shop and I really wonder what happens to the poor guys once they're inside. Finally we found an inexpensive and well, I can say genuine massage shop. Haha...it was good, really good though I couldn't stop giggling the whole time. It's a waste if you go to someplace and do not try their specialities.
After 2 days of rain, there was finally sunshine. We headed to the beach to get some sun tan. The beach there was really nice, soft sand, sunny, friendly beach boys and a spot to cuci mata. Hehe...yes, further down was the gay beach. Not the 'happy' beach but a beach where you can see guys hugging each other. I didn't go for the water sports this time round as I intended to just enjoy the beautiful horizon and allow the breeze to lullaby me to sleep. My oh my...how the mat sallehs rub oil all over their bodies to get themselves burnt....positioning their bodies in odd manners just to get the sun. How lucky we are that we can have the sun everyday!!
During the night however, we walked the streets and managed to catch a "lady-man" fashion show. Oh gosh, you can't even tell if they are a man or a lady. Yeah, they're that pretty. Oh, talking bout "lady-man", I got whacked on the arm by 1 of them and she asked if I wanna have a pic with her. You see, I was taking pictures and accidentally caught 'her' in it and 'she' earns her salary by taking pictures with people. But oh well, I said no and ran for my life...haha! While strolling the streets, I saw street dance and arrays of weird food being sold...it was because the next day was the water festivel-Lai Krathong, a festival where beautiful flower floats lighted with candles are released into the sea...symbolic of sending away bad omen. Something like that...
That's my experince in Phuket...many 1st....frightening but eye-opening.
In Phuket, one must always remember...."We are in the world but not of the world...."
Haha!! Here are some pictures...

Now I feel so handicap...doing everything with only my left hand. Thank God it's holidays! =P
Oh and guys, make sure you check the overgrip of your tennis racquet before you go back
to the court if you haven't been playing for some time. =) Just so you don't hurt yourself like I did...
I had my racquet's overgrip changed and re-stringed it as well...now, it is as good as new and I can't wait to use it next week :-> See you coach Quhar !

There's actually a poem on footprints in the sand and it goes like this...
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Scenes from his life flashed across the sky and he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, one belonging to him and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life had flashed before him,he recalled that at the lowest and saddest times of his lifethere was only one set of footprints. Dismayed, he asked, "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. I don't understand why, when I needed you most, you would leave me."
The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child. I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering when you saw only one set of footprints... That was when I carried you."

Sorry I haven't been writing for a long time. First, exam was round the corner and I was busy preparing for it and now, it's here. Just how fast time passes huh? It flies by...hehe. So make sure you make take advantage of it. Anyway, just decided to drop a post before I go back to being a book worm since my head feels a little cramped because of dear dear Sejarah. :P
P.S: I can's wait until exams are over. Gotta celebrate, definitely! Hahaha...

So, we went and ate and took pictures. It was fun and at least my friends could witness with their own eyes that I do have a big appetite. Don't underestimate my petite size!! Haha...but anyway, the highlight of the day was still my dear dear friend, Y3 the laughing hyena as usual laughed like a mad person about what? We do not know...

*Do we look alike?? Hmm....*
Well, I'm thankful God put into my life such wonderful friends. I learnt how to enjoy friendship better this year. But I doubt we can have more of such outings in the near future especially next year with SPM coming up. Hey guys! Thanks for a fun lunch-do today. Let's do it again....soon?
