Fun In Phuket! Days 4 And 5
Welcome back and thank you for being interested in the second part of my Phuket trip. Heh heh! If you are new to the blog or missed the previous post, here’s Phuket Trip Part 1!Where did we stop? Oh yes – very abruptly – with a picture of the waters surrounding Phi Phi Island.Our post-lunch exercise: My hair craves attention more than I do. Always stealing the thunder! LOL! (Read: My hair has a soul of its own) Super cool picture! The positions were all kinda planned though. I believe this would make an excellent photo for school oral examination where students have to describe what they see.“This is a beach setting. In the foreground are three ladies posing for the camera. Judging from their sunglasses and attire, it seems to be a sunny day, with blue skies and a light breeze. Right behind them is a man who apparently can jump very high. His pose and expression suggest that he is photobombing. A few steps behind them all is another passerby who is taking in everything and seems to be amused at the sight.”HAHAHA!!!Another excellent composition below. SUPER COOL RIGHT!!! CY has this uncanny ability of freezing in mid air for an extended period of time, at least a second more than the rest of us. There are tricks to taking good jumpshots, you know.One is knowing your camera, like understanding its shutter speed, focus speed, how sensitive is the half-shutter button, etc.Also important is the ‘jumper’s’ experience at taking jumpshots. The more experienced, the better and faster you get your shots. So in the same way, the more experienced the photog is with taking jumpshots, the more likely he can quickly suss out the best angles and which count means ‘JUMP!’.And then there’s the chemistry between the photographer and the jumpers.This was what we got when we asked a stranger to help us with a group jumpshot. Super random jump timings. But still funny!! Look at BFF at the extreme right. Cannot stop laughing every single time I see this photo. Right out of a postcard – sun, sand, sea, sampan So blessed to have a sunny day during monsoon season so we could go out to sea and take jumpshots at the beach! After washing up at our homely inn, we went for dinner at a steamboat buffet that only the locals go to. I love to go where the locals go coz only then you get to eat what the locals eat! Good to have a mix of local and touristy nom-noms.The steamboat buffet place is called Cherng Talay and it costs only THB60 for an all-you-can-eat buffet! How awesome is that! And the food’s really good too! I love how flushed I look in this picture! It was a combination of heat from the steamboat and a little Thai beer called SPY. Sweet sweet! I like! Oh yes, did you see the frangipani on the girls’ heads? I made them wear it. HAHA! The flowers were bought during a Bali trip with The Boyfriend.Because the three guys on the next table were too health conscious and didn’t barbecue a single thing thus leaving the precious barbecue dome underutilized, I helped myself to the space.
