Halloween in Phuket



The house was decorated the night previously with Jemma, Halloween shapes were made and painted, cobwebs were strewn through the house and a flying bat attached to the ceiling.



The next day started earlier with make up for Jemma to go to school as a witch...





Then the fun began at work - guests were invited to be painted.

fun was had by us all...


Feeding bread to the fish - a good idea?


During our trip to Koh Yao Noi we visited an island when the feeding of bread to the fish in the lagoon was not allowed and there was the possibility of being fined.

I did not know why until a few weeks later I saw the poster above on facebook  - with the text below.


We all know that throwing food into the water is bad ..But Why ?

1. Adding food to the water around reefs increases nutrient levels which will then increase the growth of harmful algae that will damage corals.

2. By feeding fish we modify their behaviour and these fish will then not graze on the harmful algae that need to be removed from the reef.

So tell your friend and boat captain not to throw their lunch scraps over board after a dive and place them in a bin....Please help us to protect the reef. Many thanks.

Think twice before you feed bread to the fish.

A trip from Phuket Airport - wats, shrines, traffic, festivals, people and more


Driving from the airport I took some 'snaps' as we drove home.
The Phuket Vegetarian was underway - a festival which must be visited

Roti Sai Mai must be tasted.

Chinese Shrines must be visited.

I love Cashew nuts and chilli.

The Heroines Monument is seen - there is a Geocache.

I love to visit Chinese Shrines 

I love to visit Buddhist Wats 

There are always new restaurants to visit.

The bus station takes you everywhere

Interesting passengers - where are they going?



Chinese burial areas are taken care of


Some Buddhist Wats are further away

There is a canal into Phuket Town

Always something different - fishing outside Hongsyok House?

There is still natural areas.

Best Tau Sar Piah in Phuket - Keng Tin


This is a very small pastry which I first had at Keng Tin in Phuket Old Town. I was then at Phuket Tea Station and found that they sold pastries which were baked by Keng Tin.

What they are specifically I am unsure - but here it is in Thai. But they do seem to be similar to a shop in Singapore called Loong Fatt?

Eggs and Nuts for sale


Why would someone want to walk around Phuket Town selling cooked eggs and nuts?



As I sipped my Iced Coffee from one of the many street coffee shops I watched this egg seller walk past sounding his horn but I could not understand why they chose these two products to sell together?

As he walked past me and down Rasada Road I saw nobody stop him?
