It's breakfast time
Breakfast was at Cafe Lillawadee, it was the most expensive breakfast I've ever had. $40 per person... luckily we had 50% discount on all food & beverages ...we had went 3 times, the sausages & fried rice were simply divine and the pastries were to-die-for. We planned on checking out Khao Lak, see the Tsunami memorial, go to the national parks but decided not to and spent the entire morning lounging at the beach. Collected seashells (planned to sneak them back to Australia) and chased crabs (hahah they were so elusive). One thing that was a let down for this resort was it's not a place for singles or young people, it's a place for complete relaxation and for honeymooners/couples. We spent the entire two days missing our bfs and wishing they were there with us.

We certainly got a lot of looks, they probably thought we were lesbians. LOL Anyway, we also had mixed feelings about our stay there, it was 99% caucasians, the only other asians were the 4 korean couples and us. In one hand, we felt "rich, special and important" because we could "afford" to stay at a place like this and on the other hand, we felt bad for the people working there, it just seemed like they were slaves to the "white" people. Hmmmm... Ness & I discussed this throughout our stay there, don't get me wrong, we can't fault the place... as I said before, it's paradise! We had dinner at Cafe Lillawadee, opted out of the seafood buffet (kinda regretting it now though, it just looked sooo delicious), ordered ala carte instead. It took 1 hour for our pasta to arrive. >_<  But thankfully they kept the olive bread & bread sticks coming. We also ordered antipasto platter, we thought it'd look like the ones served here in Aus but it was just prosciutto and melon balls. *sigh* The staff were so helpful, they noticed us slapping ourselves silly so they brought insect repellant for us. Such angels, I tell you. LOL
