Boys checking out the pool.
They’ve got 2 pools within the hotel.
A rooftop pool which is real deep and a much child friendly pool with a sit-in bar


What attracted the boys most was the Kids World area in the hotel!

Sleeping real soundly on the first night


Day 2!!
Got up early for our island hopping tour!
Got the package at some random place while on our way back to the hotel
SGD 88 per adult for the package. Includes ferry ride, lunch, snorkelling gear.
To Khai Nok island, then to Maya Bay & Phi Phi Don.

Everyone’s tellin me its soooo ex
Ya hahahah i know,  i know, but its tiring to bring kids around to bargain and get the cheapest rate so we just settled.

Island hoppers usually take their speedboat for island hopping.
We took the ferry cuz its safer for the kids and my preggy sis ^^

Then when the fishes gathered to nibble on the bread Trev fed,
HE FREAKED OUT hahahaha his reaction was epic and funny to watch :x

I've always loved being under the sun
I'd like to think that I live for it hahahahaha

Collage of our day spent at the beach.
Love that we can easily secure a tanning spot with $

You'll just have to rent a beach chair and you can sit there all day 
If its yours its yours no one's gonna come messing with your spot

I didn't even have to move my ass to get drinks or corn to nom on
Vendors will pass by with their boxes or baskets of stuff for sale

It was both Trev and mine, our first trip to Phuket.

It was overall an enjoyable family trip!
