JJ’s Bar At Mai Khao Beach Phuket

JJ’s Bar At Mai Khao Beach Phuket

Just 15 minutes walk away from JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa, there is a small and homely Thai seafood restaurant called JJ’s Bar. Located along the roadside and opposite Anatara Phuket Villa, this seafood restaurant was in my Phuket’s food itinerary listing because of it’s high popularity in TripAdvisor. Since it is our last night in Phuket, we decided to spend our dinner in JJ’s Bar.

JJ’s Bar isn’t a classy air-conditioned restaurant with exquisite decorations and lots of service staffs. In fact, this dining place is open-aired with less than five working staffs and is the home of the restaurant owner, Jit. He got his yard opened as a restaurant with the layout of some tables and chairs. That’s it! Jit is a very chatty guy and speaks English fluently. He also used to work as a bartender in a hotel, hence most of the decorations displayed in JJ’s Bar are bottles of alcoholic spirits.

Crafting And Turtle Feeding In JW Marriott Phuket

Crafting And Turtle Feeding In JW Marriott Phuket

Our resort in Phuket had a great timetable of activities planned out for all ages every day for the month. We got the timetable on our first day of arrival upon check-in. The activities are grouped into children, teens, adults and families. For teens age 13 to 18 , they get to enjoy activities like Outdoor Social Football, X-Box Team Games and Scuba Diving in the main pool. For adults more than 19 years old, most of the activities are for the health conscious like the Aqua Tai Chi, Muay Thai Boxing, Aqua Aerobic Exercise and Mountain Bike Tour. Both age groups have their activities taking place either at the Health Club or under the sun. The Health Club is a 24 hours recreational center with sauna, plunge pool and whirlpool tub.

A Day’s Trip In Phuket Town

A Day’s Trip In Phuket Town

“Dear readers, the transport timetables and pricing breakdown from JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa to Phuket Town will be shown at the end of this post.”

After our morning walk and sand playing by the beach, we headed back to our resort and get ready for our 10:30am shuttle bus to Phuket Town. The journey from JW Marriott Resort & Spa to our destination takes about 45 minutes. Despite it was quite a bumpy ride, there wasn’t any traffic jams. The shuttle bus dropped us outside a small office called VIG Shuttle Bus Center. Right at the entrance, the staffs from VIG approached and introduced us to the attractions of Phuket Town and what were our expectations. As we are total noobs on jaywalking in Phuket, we decided to take up their taxi service which cost us 1000 Thai Baht ($40 SGD) per vehicle. Glad to say our driver speaks English pretty well and he assured us that we will not miss our 4pm bus back to resort.

Nutty Chocolate Oat Bars

Nutty Chocolate Oat Bars

Among all my bakes posted in my blog, this is probably the best and tastiest pastry I ever made out of my kitchen. I want to create an easy “no bake” pastry which can be pinch between my finger and thumb, after which I can lick up the chocolates on them. Did I say chocolates? Well, that sounds pure mood elevator.

Naming this recipe Nutty Chocolate Oat Bars, these small bite bars are made up of Quaker Rolled Oats and mixed nuts like walnuts, pistachios and cashew nuts. Trust me, this quick bite will definitely makes you open up your mouth and say “Ahhhh…”.

Morning By The Beach in JW Marriott Phuket

Morning By The Beach in JW Marriott Phuket

Starting our second day early in Phuket, the first plan we had was to take a morning stroll on the beach and visit the Phuket Town in the late morning. Feeling excited with the sunny morning, we first headed down to the reception counter in the resort to book the 10:30am shuttle bus. This shuttle bus ride can accommodate up to 11 people and will leave Phuket Town at 4:00pm. For a one way bus ticket, it cost 250 Thai Baht ($10 SGD) per person and 500 Thai Baht ($20 SGD) for a two way trip. There is no need to pay cash upfront as the resort will charge the payments to the room’s credit card. After our booking was completed, we were ready to have our morning breakfast in JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa.

(Giveaway Post) Baked Oat Rice With Chicken Chunks

As a full time working Dad, thinking about “what’s for dinner tonight” is often a tied-up situation. Probably ordering takeaways is the best solution for working adults and busy parents like myself. In fact, I am often stuck in the decision of choosing an easier or a healthier option for my family’s meal. Of course, cooking at home is definitely a healthier way of living where I have control on the amount of condiments and ingredients used in my dishes. Washing up the dishes? Yup, that’s a hassle. I used to think that it is never easy to come out with recipes which are a combination of easy, healthy, delicious and less-laborious after a day at work. Glad to say, I found Quaker.
