I was in holiday that time but dunno where i must to go until suddenly i think bout Thailand. so the tickets i bought was in the spot. I depart from Jakarta to Phuket Thailand n back from Singapore. When I arrived at Phuket It was drizzel around. The decided to go to Patong beach by bus, but lucky me that i met 4 indonesian guys on they to boarding pass after landing. So we share van together n it was 650 baht. They were nice n friendly enough. Even in Patong we were searching the guest house together. We got a guest house very close to to the main road.
The next day, I joined fullday trip to explore Phiphi Island around. Early morning i wake up only don't want to be late to go to this fuckn island. wow...i can't stop this spirit. the driver pick up in front of the hostel. i just eat chicken burger from 7 eleven when the van arrive. on the way there the driver pick each person at their hotel. one by one... until the van full according by the seat. well, that morning he drop us in the pier called ramada.some staff already there n allow us to enter the lobby.
"hello my name is pi, to day we r going to visit all places around phiphi island, all.
i saw 2 indian women pray in the corner. their mouths never stop to move...lol.. but i dunno what do they talk. n i don't care. i just thinking that this really really cool trip. at my back there r an oz family with their 2 kids. ghost... they bring kids in this fuckn boat... n the 2 kids r the youngest of us. maybe around 2 n 4 years old.
with this boat we visit viking cave, monkey island, maya bay, koh phiphi, khai island n some places which i don't remember the name. at phiphi island we stay there for a while for lunch n walking around.

notes n tips: if u r in budged traveling this recommended place to buy food:
i saw in the carefour, they sale rice n some meals ready to eat n the price cheap enough. too bad i didn't buy there. cuz i was late to know it...lol next is 7 eleven, they sale bread, burger, sandwich n some coffee. it's enough for ur breakfast. n try a canteens near by area, sometimes u will get lower price like when i bought the noodle...lol. plz bring ur own bath stuff n cosmetic its better.
after i arrived at phuket town i must walk for 15 minutes to reach bus terminal. i stop ay 7 eleven n buy 2 burgers n mineral water there. honestly, i m still full that time. but at least i kept it for the stock even i have some biscuits in my back. well i think better i buy, just for prepare. in the bus terminal it was almost 6 p.
a long nite i in bus i only saw a dark road n sometimes some big boards on the road with the thai writing to mention the road name n destination arrow.but its useless as i dunno what is the meaning..lol..its seem like a warm writing there...hehehehhe... to remove my boring time i try to sleep. but i can't do it. u know why? its very very cold. i guess the ac temperature was below 16 degrees. i wear my jacket n my sock. but still cold. o Jesus... how can i sleep....

khaosand rd very hot n messy. but i dunno why i really want to see this place. i saw tourists every 1 step i walk. may be they will to find some hotel or guest house like me. in the middle of the street i saw restaurant. there r some western guest chit chat with some beers...o nooo...beers for brunch time... i stop there n sit on the chair. my table is beside the wall in the corner. i order fried rice n soda.
