Missing the sun kissed skin

IMG_7037

I went to bed hoping to wake up to an azure sky and yes, couldn't have asked for a better day. (Weather the next few days was scorchingly unbearable though). So, to Patong beach! There are many other picture-postcard spots with their seascape sceneries around in Phuket but since it was a trip to rest and relax, we set aside island hopping for another time. The sight of Patong beach and its idyllic backdrop fringed with palm tree leaves is just breathtaking. There's something about the beach and it's serenity that keeps me enraptured for hours cause it really does make me happy. (that is if the heat is bearable haha)

Writing this entry makes combating wanderlust a difficulty. Anyone else feels my pain?
Anyhow, enjoy the visuals!

Western breakfast -






Pictures can be so deceiving.. it's not actually as relaxing out there as these pictures may suggest  as the heat was too insane to bare.
Honestly, I'm really thankful to have had people around me who put up with the sweltering heat to get some blog worthy shots for me. Let's hope I'll find a boyfriend who would willingly do that for me? haha. Spent a good 15 mins under the scorching sun before going back to the shade. With that kind of heat, I really have no idea how these caucasians are able to soak it up under the sun for hours.

Still in awe with its beauty.

Lunch at Number 6 Restaurant, Rat-u-thi road -

I'd say this was one of my favourite Thai restaurant I dined at throughout my span of stay here. They serve authentic Thai food with a fairly reasonable price range from THB 70 and above and prices like these are hard to come by along Patong beach! It's located only 5 mins walk away from Jungceylon mall, the largest shopping mall (don't expect much from there) in Phuket.

Had my first ever parasailing experience. I've always wanted to try it but never had a chance to! Even with my not-so-severe acrophobia, I still insisted on giving it a try! That 10-15mins up there felt so surreal. Being able to take in the immensely spectacular vista, watching humans gradually turn into miniscule ants, the continuous buffeting of sea breeze across your face, and doing my best to ignore my fear of falling... made for a rather interesting experience. 

That's me up in the air! (the one infront) The guy was literally only holding onto the ropes attached.. scary.

& when I successfully 'landed'!
