You’ve been Phuket-ed!

All thanks to The Glamourous Factory, A and I were all prepped up after weeks of hard work!
This cosy little space tucked away in a small corner is going to be your best friend, especially if you are one of those
who works in the CBD area.
We visited The Glamourous Factory last week and each enjoyed a pampering facial!
I also tried eyelash extension for the first time in my life (it really isn’t as uncomfortable as I’ve been told!)

The Glamourous Factory not only do facial treatments but also a whole array of other services like nails,
waxing, ear candling, IPL, and many more!
It’s just a stone’s throw away from my favourite Amoy Street Food Centre and it’s so convenient to just pop by to get a treatment
the next time I’m in the CBD area! Yay! πŸ˜€

They are currently having an Opening Special which will end on 30th November 2012 and Christmas promotions are also on.
I always liked how I can find treasures like that. πŸ™‚
Don’t forget to check them out the next time you need a quick facial during lunch time!

All this prepping is not done for nothing, of course!
A’s birthday is just round the corner and I planned a SURPRISE for her!
There’s one thing you don’t know though – I’m REALLY bad at keeping secrets and surprises.
And most of the time, I just end up telling her everything and ruin all my plans.
She likes to tease me for this all the time.

So this time round, I told her we will go get facials and feel refreshed and recharged,
and I’ll bring her for a nice staycation at a fancy hotel!
It was really torturing for me to keep the surprise for as long as 3 weeks!
But when the day finally arrived, I was really proud of myself.
It was a job well done! *big grin*

I got her blindfolded and took her to a cab.
Of course, I told the driver where we wanted to go before she got out of the house.
Sneaky. Hehehe!

And this is pretty much the essence of it.
She was so bewildered when she realised we were at the airport! Hahahaha!
“What are we doing at the airport?”

IMG_4622

I think she didn’t know whether to look confused or excited. But it gives me a damn big sense of satisfaction! :p
She was also a little taken aback when she knew I had stolen her passport. Hahaha!
I then handed her a little greeting card with our boarding details all printed.

And before she could digest everything, we are on our way to PHUKET for a sunny holiday!

The resort I got is my favourite place in Phuket – awesome location, awesome beaches, awesome people, awesome everything!
If anyone of you had been to Andara, you would totally agree with me when I say this place is really world class standard!
I love everything from the smell of their rooms to the taste of their room service food. Heh!

Here is a little virtual tour around the resort.

We have a one bedroom suite and this place is HUGE!
We have a fully functional kitchen that comes with all the things you might need – pots and pans, cutlery, crockery, etc.
There is even a dish washer and oven in the kitchen!

The living area is spacious and completed with Bose sound system too!
Good stuff.

Our clean and bright bedroom!

The bathroom is crazy big too – comes with two sinks so we won’t have to fight for space.
And the bath tub is massive as well!

We decided to just chill and slack the day away in this awesome suite.
So dinner will just be settled with room service.
The food was just superb, and the hotel staff would even set the table nicely for the guests!

Each suite comes with a huge tray of fresh tropical fruits, so we had fresh fruits after dinner. Yums!

Breakfast the next day was at the famous SILK Restaurant.
It was such a spread!
A had her Eggs Ben and I had my banana pancakes for breakfast!

I am not really a big fan of Patong Beach but I guess we have to drop by Patong at least once since we’re in Phuket.
So we headed out to town to grab lunch and buy some junk food for the night!

Something random. We found these PINK eggs in one of the convenience stores! So strange!

Those are century eggs by the way.

It was just a short 3D2N stay because we still have tons of work waiting for us in Singapore and
we really cannot afford to be away for too long.
Besides, I whisked her away secretly and I didn’t know if she was needed at home or had other stuff to do.
So time is of the essence!

The last (but most exciting) day was packed with activities!
We got up nice and early for breakfast before preparing for the beach! πŸ˜€

The resort offers free shuttle to the nearby Kamala Beach where the Andara Beach Lounge is at.
I much prefer this beach because it’s more private and not as crazily crowded as Patong Beach!
There are resort staff at the lounge too so there is no need to worry about not being able to get drinks or towels or what not.
In fact, we were welcomed with a nice chilled drink and cold towels the moment we arrived at the beach!

The beach is BEEEAAAUUUTIIFFUULLL!

In the picture above (which is also on the left of the lagoon at Kamala Beach),
you can see Andara resorts and villa littered all over the slopes!

To complete my day-at-the-beach look, I also packed along my studded bracelet from Style Locker!
I love how the bracelet can suit different looks, even for beachwear!

I’m looking like a pirate. 😑

We also went up to our private pool for a little dip to cool ourselves down after the tan.
I love the infinity pool and how we overlook the ocean! ❀

Makes my newly Juup-ed toes look prettier too. Hahaha!

And before we checked out at 8pm (yes the resort lets us check out that late!),
we had another nice bubble bath to end the trip on a sweet note. ❀

And I also found another new piece of accessory I absolutely love!
This chunky necklace from Rainbow Mochi works like magic on all my collared tops!
I like how the gem in the middle sits right between the collars when I pair it up with blouses.
