|Apart from the street signs, this may look like any town in Malaysia
|The tuk tuk however is a dead giveaway
|Abundance of food outlets
|Street view of Novotel Centara facing west
|Street view of Grand Plaza Hotel facing south
|Street view from the corner of Lee Gardens facing east
|Up the elevator to our hotel room, obviously on the 6th floor
|Cat still a bit groggy fom sleep
|Its McDonalds, so Brendan's up and about
|Enjoying his hash browns
|And his cheezy fries
|While I had a piping hot cup of McD's own cafe mocha
|Why don't they have something similar in Malaysia?
|Cat's finally awake
|Brendan taking in the sights
|Thinking of what to buy at the Plaza market
|Is the tuk tuk a little too fast my dear?
|A couple of weary but happy travellers
|My happy boy
|So young but so adept at self-portrait picture taking
|The shop was ravaged by the floods but recovered
|What's Zebra Thailand?
|A lot of haggling was invovled
|Managed to haggle down to 80Bt per t-shirt
|The trick is in coming early to make sure you're the first customer
|Aah, Brendan finally tired of tuk tuks
|Down a narrow road
|Brendan's still engrossed with his book
|Casualties of the recent floods
|An unfamiliar part of town
|Not sure if this part of the Plaza market
|We will need to explore this part of town next year
|He looks weary
|The train station
|Is mom done yet?
|Brendan looking very bored indeed
|I got a cheap pair of flip flops myself
|Brendan had the chicken rice
|Cat's tom yam with rice was delicious
|I had the more sensible seafood fried rice
|Playing a crash and burn game
|The game had him totally captivated
|Hope its not how he'll be driving in years to come
|Will miss this tremendously when I go back
|My little slice of heaven
|More soda, Brendan?
|All that fresh seafood
|She remembers us well
|And her prices remain reasonable
|Its located behind the Regency hotel, if you're interested
|Warms my heart to see my son so generous with his pocket money
|The were doing a very cute jitter bug styled dance
|My good friend Mhen
|Brendan will be his next customer in a few short years
|Doesn't he look adorable?
|Dashing young man
|Despite the signage, they've reduced their price to 250bt per hour
|Hard at work with my feet (on the left)
|Cat's feet was easier
|Feeling a little ticklish
|A good back rub
|And its all smiles
After an absolutely lovely foot massage, we walked around the Lee Gardens Plaza one final time. Tried out the local variety of the teh tarik.
|Had a distinctly pandan flavour
We bade a fond farewell to Hat Yai, vowing to return for Xmas next Year!
