Phuket in 48hrs.

0730, Monique gone jogging. I refused to go, rather laze around some… 0915, all packed and ready to go. Checked out, finished breakfast rather quickly.. We kinda have a target for getting to Tesco at 1000. We just have to get local foods to bring home for family and friends. Using the last 2 hrs to gather what we can.

Midway thru shopping at Tesco..

1020, .. a little late.. Tesco is really the right place to go for getting these local snacks and cheap stuff. Monique went in and grabbed … I got just a bit..

Chili parade

Tesco, a UK chain supermarket, is one store that adapts itself to the market it is in. This is the Thai flavor Tesco! Chili galore! I wish Tesco in JB had this counter. 2nd tray on the lower shelf is not available in SG and JB. Have had it in Langkawi. This is my fav chili specie. Very spicy, great for making mildly flavored, wildly hot dips. Not so good for soup. Red chili padis are good for making TomYam soup as they are more flavourful.. I am very particular about the chilis that I use.

Our bags at the airport.

1200, packing in our new purchases took quite abit of time at the carpark.. Monique bought too much stuff. I had to help her take stuff out of the boxes, to save space. Most stuff have boxes over airtight foil packing.

1230, long drive to the airport. Return car in perfect condition, no extra charge 🙂 . Checked in and got tax rebate for the spreaders.

Flying out. Byebye Phuket.

1500, Yay! Finally we are out. This has been a very successful trip. I got everything on my list, including a large bag of fried pork skins… Think I am abit sick with the place and now looking forward to the comfort of home. Looking forward to climbing into a big soft bed and enjoying the aircon that works through the night.

1740, arrived at Changi, checked back into SG, bought duty-free.. as usual..

1830, home! Finally! Kitti cats were mighty glad to see me.. ..
