During our stay in Singapore, we took off for a week to Phuket which is about a 2 hour flight from Singapore. It's one of my favourite islands to visit - plenty of resorts to choose from, decent infrastructure, lots of activities and of course plenty of beaches.
Warning - tons of photos in this post as I had such a great time. This was a sea canoe trip starting at mid day till evening called Hong by Starlight I'll let the photos speak for themselves. It really made my trip to Phuket memorable besides spending time with D of course :) Anyone has other activities to recommend in Phuket?

You must be wondering where the food pictures are - so here goes: This was the dinner spread - cooked on board the boat. Not bad eh...It was very tasty, they start by serving some warm seafood tom yam soup to warm you up before you dig into the food. Just eat and enjoy and make sure you don't look at the kitchen. If you did you'd probably not touch anything.
After dinner, we saw a bat cave and then lit the kratong and looked at the bio luninescene in the water - uber cool.
