This was a day off so I started all days with something different.
I found the pack of Wild pigs (if that's right) and then proceeded to swiftly walk away because they began to chase me and I really did not want to have a discussion with the animals - especially as I had no food...
So the next step was to take a coffee at the Bake and more (a bit early today though and they were not quite ready).
So I finished the chapter on the book that I was reading and I swiftly made my way to a popular local Dim Sum restaurant -จนทรจรา ตมซำ (Janjira) - delicious but I had very little to know what it was that I was eating (no menu, simply point at) - a review will be posted here.
Following this I wandered into Phuket Town via Big C for toys to buy.
Then it was on to Central Festival but I was too early - only discovered this as I crossed the bridge - I do not think that this will be finished this year and there is little news on the tunnel through Patong Hill (an aside).
Then to ธดาพร ของเลน - a Toy Shop FULL of toys (not all of real quality) but what a visit... and bought so much.
This weight of bags meant that I needed to take a break in the air-conditioning of the Phuket Tea Station - lovely. After this refresh stop I decided to walk to Wat Kosit Wihan - I must add this to my map but I have not yet.

BUT on the way I could not resist 'popping in' to the Sam Se Je Hud Chinese Shrine at the bottom of Rang Hill the Shrine is always a pleasure and I do like to visit.
As I strolled the Mae Luan Road I found that there was a new coffee shop Sweet 'n Treats (a review to come her) so I had to stop there.
It was at this time that I noticed that there was รานพกนจน a shop across the street which sold articles for use in the Chinese Shrines which I so like to visit. Just been asked for some 'Moon Blocks' which are used on the Chinese Shrine and I hope that I am able to purchase them here.
Here I was welcomed and allowed to take photographs (a review to come here) and then given an Amulet. The shop has a website site if you are interested.
After this we went to Fuji at Central Festival for our Japanese lunch.
Followed by a visit to the Indy Market in Phuket Town
