It's suppose to blog about the Raya House that i have mentioned in my previous post. but Cam Gigandet in Burlesque is toooo hot and irresistible :P

I watched Burlesque last night. It was a good movie and I feel like watching it again! xD

The dancing parts never fail to amaze me, I can't keep my eyes off from the dancing, singing parts and of course Cam Gigandet who plays "Jack" in the movie!

Don't you think he's too hot? His eyes could kill! I guess he make all the girls go "aww" when watching Burlesque. haha.

Phuket Town

We visited Phuket town on our first day in the land of smile. We have few places in mind but we only managed to go 1 place only due to the tuk-tuk driver we met! He didn't really know the places in Phuket town. grr. wasted our money and time. but luckily we went to Raya House, the restaurant which we put in our list before we reached Phuket. That somehow made us feel a bit better.

There are several ways from Patong to Phuket Town. If taxi, it costs around 400baht for one way. We went by the public bus which cost us 25baht per person only! haha! but it took us 1 hour+ to reach and it's very hot. You may be on the same ride with the ladyboys or gay couples. We are lucky, we same bus with one gay couple who sat beside eng siang. haha!

while waiting for the bus. She is my roommate, Sam. :)

The bus in Phuket, somehow it looks like a garbage truck?

The couple in the bus

Me & Sam's bf

They have Tesco Lotus

Here we are!

Inside the tuk-tuk which drove by a directionless tuk-tuk driver

So disappointed that unable to have some shots on Thalang Road and other roads. not many pictures of Phuket Town. We asked the tuk-tuk sent us back to Patong after he went wrong for few places, he charged us 350baht.

Coming up next: Raya House to have our late lunch

Bodega Phuket

I should start with the place where I spent my 3 nights. We spent our nights in this hostel, Bodega. It located strategically at Patong beach, 5 minutes away from Junceylon shopping mall and 7 minutes away from the happening street, Soi Bangla and 10 minutes away from the beach! everything is so convenient! Bodega itself is a hostel, cafe and gallery.

The staffs there are all very friendly and helpful, they will help you with all your doubts and also help you to plan on your trip if you have no idea where to visit! double thumbs up!

This is the chill out place. There is a computer provided there for the hostel guests. Look at the walls!

Happy hour

Now, time to show you our room. We booked a 4-bed mixed dorm with bathroom attached. Bodega has private room, 4-bed mixed dorm and 8-bed dorm. There are 3 of us so we chosen the 4-bed mixed dorm. Before i stepped into the room, I thought it would be 2 double decker beds but turn out to be four single bed with thick mattress and comforter! We are very satisfied with our bookings! =D The room doesn't look nice in this pic, but believe me, it's nice!

so who occupied the 4th bed? the first night was an european guy and the second and third night was a south african lady. :)

the bathroom

yes bath tub!

If you're happen to go Bodega, remember to try their Smoothies! I have tried their Banana, Mixed Berries and Mango Raspberry smoothies. Each cost 100baht only.

This is Mango Raspberry.

This is Mixed Berries

I don't have a picture of banana smoothies, try it yourself :P

I had this for my breakfast before I departed back to Malaysia. (Thai Chicken Burger)

If you wish to look for budget hostel when you visit Phuket, try Bodega. You can check their room/bed rates at their website. It is very comfortable and clean. :)
