We took a tuk-tuk to Patong beach one evening to do a bit of shopping and to dine at the famous Savoey Restaurant (another orgasmic dinner, but Zara was chanting "Want to go back Hotel" throughout dinner because she couldn't stand the loud live performance there, so even though the food was good, we couldn't slowly savour it).
Others We wanted to spend most of our time at the resort, hence we didn't go out much. We have most of our lunches at Surin area. Most of the time during lunch, Zara fell a sleep, so Daddy and I could munch and enjoy our food at our own pace.
On our last night, we wanted to do a last round of shopping and went to Canal Shopping Village at the Laguna area. There were really not many shops. A waste of time (for shopping). Luckily, we found a nice restaurant, and had a very good dinner, at least our trip wasn't fully wasted.

I also got a surprise gift from my best friend in New York. She bought us a spa voucher in Twinpalms without me knowing, and I was very surprise to see this in our room when we checked in. Our anniversary isn't until end next month, but this is such a nice gesture from her.
On top of this, the booking website also gave us a 2hrs spa treatment voucher for booking more than 3 nights stay. Daddy is not a spa person, so I got all the pampering in the spa, making use of these vouchers, while Daddy looked after Zara in the room. I had such a good back and shoulder rub, oh, it was orgasmic! (Thanks Ping!) And then, what's more blissful than lounging at the poolside sala, sipping herbal tea, while watching the kid and Daddy play in the pool.(Thanks Daddy, for allowing me this luxury by looking after Zara.)

When it got dark we headed to Central Market and had a quick bite at the food court. The Lantern Fest was at the Central Market car park. They were giving out free paper lanterns, goodie packs with drinks and mooncake (but we didn't take it since we don't really fancy mooncakes). There was a lantern making contest, and the lanterns were hung in Central Market itself for every one to view and judge. There was also a stage put up for some cultural performance. While some VIPs were making speeches, we just explored the surrounding. We found out there was going to be a lion dance, and a lantern procession.
We even managed to see a Dragon Dance, something not as common as the Lion Dance. It was quite nicely done (with the dragon twirling, twisting, flipping about chasing after a ball), and our very first experience seeing one.
