The final and last day in Phuket. Once I got back to Singapore, it was exam time. I had the biggest Whopper at the airport.

I am starting to fall in love with the fact that I can wake up to the sound of clashing waves and look out at such an amazing view. It's only one more day until I have to leave, yet I am not tired with this place at all! But all good things come to an end and it's about time that I get away from this fairy tale dream back to reality.
Phuket was meant to be a total relaxation trip. However, I had an exam one day after we get back. During this time, I was suppose to read all the relevant chapters of the textbook, which I have never opened until now, but only managed to read 2 chapters. Also, the Italian restaurant at the resort, Diavolo, is extremely good, probably one of the best I've had so far. The white linen dress that you see in this set of pictures is the one that was made in Vietnam, what do you guys think? I've come to realize that linen gets wrinkly really easily...no more linen clothes for me.
I wrote this so long ago as this was a post from the old blog, but I just wanted to share this beautiful experience with you guys. Got home really late from Cambodia and had to quickly unpack and pack to get ready for the early flight the next day to Phuket. One thing to notice was that taxi was more expensive than Bali. When we arrived at the hotel, we weren't able to check in, so we decided to eat and wait around. When we were finally able to check in, they had upgraded us to the aqua suite, but we were quite disappointed because we wanted the Talay suite (or else I wouldn't have booked it, right, because there was literally like a $50 diff between the two rooms) which had a much much muchhhhh better view. I told them that I wanted the original room and they told me that it was fully booked...and I was thinking to myself...didn't I book it? Well...after another 2 hours of waiting and more waiting, finally got the Talay suite, 122, and started my stay in Phuket!

Last full day in Bali, we just spent it walking around town in Ubud, which is like the art center of Bali. Bought a few souvenirs to bring back with us. It was honestly such a rip off!!! I should have bargained more. $50 USD for the bag (picture near the end) was totally not worth it! I still have it with me today to remind myself what a rip off it was.
I sorta knew that Bali rained a lot, but I didn't know that it rained this much. Although the morning was nice and bright, the afternoon was totally dark and gloomy, making me so lazy that I just wanted to do absolutely nothing all day long. There was also a lack of internet once it started raining. We had breakfast at the infinity pool, which was quite lovely but they didn't lay the flowers until mid way through our breakfast. I guess we woke up too early?
