Anniversary Trip to Phuket! (Part Two)


Have you guys checked out Part 1 for some of the fun things to do and places to go already? If you haven't, please click HERE.

If you have, then let's jump straight into Part 2! :) I will be covering my Anniversary Day itself and some interesting meals we had with great views hehe.

Ceramic Kitchen

On the day of our Anniversary, my boyfriend decided to take me somewhere really special for lunch - the place was called Ceramic Kitchen. The name is to the point but still very cool: it is a restaurant that serves all its meals on ceramic plates/bowls, and there is a shop AND working room behind where their own ceramics are being made and sold! I couldn't help wandering all over the place and snapping photos because it was so unique and pretty at the same time.

The total meal came up to be about SGD $28, which I suppose is slightly pricier for Thailand. Still, the meal was good and the view around was great. We felt we deserved that little treat on a special day so why not? ;)


I wanted to take some OOTDs here but the full view of my body was pretty weird hahaha, so I'll leave you with something more "romantic" looking. I gotta give it to my boyfriend for being such a good sport with my photos sometimes.

My boyfriend surprised me with the trip to this restaurant for our anniversary dinner! :) I was super shocked because, when we arrived, it looked NOTHING like the rest of Phuket. Up to this point, everything looked very typical Thailand - shophouses, dusty roads, street foods. But the moment I stepped out of the taxi and entered the restaurant, it's like I was teleported to the Maldives.

The view of the sunset was stunning, albeit a few mosquito bites here and there towards night time, and the breeze was so welcome. Our food was all FRESH and my favorite were the scallops. I know this because I keep ordering scalloped pasta in Singapore hoping for something mouth watering, but they're always frozen and have this weird metallic taste. Not these though, these were succulent and savory all at the same time. I almost didn't want to share lol! To top it off, that dish was only SGD $12! Super worth it.


Here's an anniversary photo of my boyfriend and I. It was such a lovely evening, but it was so dark so I really had to edit this photo a lot. Forgive me for the graininess. Regardless, it's hands down one of my favorite photos of the trip.


Laguna's Eateries with a View

Now, here are two places we ate at that had an amazing view! The first one is Tony's Restaurant situated in the heart of Laguna. I'm guessing some people might call it a tourist trap because of the slightly higher prices, but my boyfriend and I just wanted a nice view for lunch that day so we didn't mind. We had pretty typical Thai Food: Pineapple Fried Rice, Fried Glass Noodles and Tom Ka Gai (chicken in a milky broth). If I were to be completely honest about the food quality, you're better off just going to Nakhon Kitchen hahahaha. But like I mentioned, you can't get that view just anywhere.


The second place we went was called Linda's Kitchen. Don't expect to really locate it since it's not a restaurant per se, it was just one of those little makeshift huts. We stopped here mainly because we bought a tie-dye shawl from a lady outside of Xana Beach Club and she mentioned that her friend served pretty good Thai Food from the stalls inside.

We half expected to be served takeaway plates and sit on a beach chair, which is completely not what I wanted because the SUN WAS EVIL THAT DAY haha. It was shining down particularly hard towards the side of the beach and I was really dreading this meal.

THEN the lady took her table and 2 chairs and went out through the BACK of her hut and set us down facing the lake(?) under lots of trees and shade. We were literally sitting on a table ALONE, surrounded by nothing but grass around us, like our own personal picnic cum restaurant. Besides the annoying birds that kept coming near in an attempt to eat our food, that was really a relaxing meal!


We've come to the end of my quick holiday post, and I hope you've enjoyed it! Editing 40+ pictures s no joke haha. I'm going off to Hainan in June and I can't wait for what I'll snap then!

Happy Monday all, hope this post takes away some of those blues so you can get down to some holiday planning too. ;)
