I think we have made a mistake... A huge mistake! We are currently at the Marriott 5 star resort in Phuket. There is no way that the Sultan Hostel in Istanbul is going to measure up to this! Huge Apartment with hot and cold running maids, water sports, shopping and a ridiculous number of pools. It occurs to me that Michelle and Justin have secured this beautiful resort which mirrors, almost exactly, their beautiful home in Singapore. It's a bit like people who live on Bondi beach going on holidays to Coffs Harbour beach. But I guess if you like the lifestyle, why change? And hey, what's wrong with eating chicken parmigiana in Thailand.

We flew into Singapore at 10pm and then out to Phuket at 7am. We only found this out the day before. Michelle (our daughter) is very organised like me but (like me) she sometimes forgets to tell others what she has planned in her head. We also found out that it was carry on luggage only so at midnight, in the Singapore humidity, Ashley and I repacked for the morning flight. Also turns out when we stay with them on the way back she has booked the family on a cruise for 4 days, leaving us to find for ourselves on Singapore. Just like to keep us on our toes.

Cooper and James are adorable and great fun. See photos for conformation.

Hi Julie, Sounds like my kind of resort. Think I would fit in perfectly. Love the baby elephant and the boys look great.
