Recuperating like a King @ Amari Vogue Krabi, Thailand

I have to admit i miss my part time studying life.

Gone are the days when we would take 2 weeks off and study a paper.

The entire period; we would be shut out of the working world and although it was equally stressful, it gave us time to be "away".

So this year as an "away" holiday between the Girlfriend I (last year was Pangkor Laut), we booked ourselves into Amari Vogue (Rated #1 on Trip Advisor).

I knew there may have been some "catch" when there was an offer pay 2 free 1, and we found out on the day we arrived.

It was low season because it was the rainy season.

Well thank goodness, it was only a shower here and there but still beautiful sunshine.

The best part about going on holiday at a secluded resort is how our body clocks resumes back to what i call "normal humanbeing hours". Sleep early before midnight and wake up just when the sun is up.

Then proceed to feast like a king at breakfast.

Fresh fruits to start the digestion system. Ever seen light orange coloured papayas?

A basket of freshly toasted goodies

With home made jams, like rhubarb and tomato and chilli (tastes like our thai sweet chilli minus all the spice), this was awesome!

A savoury watery like Teo Cheow porridge with minced pork (thai style) that was simple yet delicious

To rather disappointing "german" waffles without texture


Then you have awesome pad thai with huge prawns

Omelettes with generous amounts of pork bacon, sausages, tomatoes and potatoes


Beautifully made poached eggs served with other sides like smoked salmon and spinach or hollandaise sauce.

How i wish i can live like a king once again.

Egads. I'd complain too but I notice every comment above me has more or less taken care of that, hehe.

Oh gosh, that sure is one breakfast fit for a king... or two kings, as it were. I wonder if the Devil is keen on Krabi next for a vacation? Hmm... :P
