We also had pineapple shakes and ice coffee. Total spent was 290baht.

We ordered cheese beef burger which comes with fries and salad, tomyam chicken, fish sweet and sour, omelette, mixed vege and rice. We drank lime juice, mixed fruit shake and coconut milkshake. Cost us 1020baht. Quite pricey but the tomyam was soooooo delicious.

After food with had a nice afternoon nap. The boys woke me up coz they are bored. We went to the beach and made our sand castle. Then we played with the wave again. It was just fun. Che Raeesa woke up and came with ayah. She doesnt enjoy the big ocean waves so we move on to the pool. Ayah stayed at the beach coz Che Rafael still wanted to play with the sand.

At the pool Che Rezael and Che Raeesa picked flowers and made new friend from Italy/Germany. Her name is Lara. Pool time was amazing coz the water was warm.

Woke early this morning to go fishing. We thought we had a good spot but unfortunately there were to many seaweed. Ayah caught a fish but the fishing line was so badly tangled that he had to cut off the line. Head back to the hotel for breakfast and continue playing at the beach.
