Welcome to Sunday Summary, the meme in which I attempt to summarize the week that came before. This was another week spent largely at home. In fact, the only day that I absolutely had to be somewhere on the other side of the island at a specific time was the day that we had the … Continue reading Sunday Summary #39
Old Phuket Town
Daily Phuket #94: 9 December 2021 – Melt Me!
Google Maps really needs to update the names of places in Old Town. There are so many name changes and a plethora of new eateries and drinkeries that I often give up when trying to discover the name of local places. A case in point is the stretch of Thepkrassatri Road both north and south … Continue reading Daily Phuket #94: 9 December 2021 – Melt Me!
Daily Phuket #87: 1 December 2021 – Phuket Icons
Nowhere is more iconic in Old Phuket Town than the twin yellow Sino-Portuguese style Standard Chartered Bank and the clock tower/police station built across the street to protect it. Sitting at the intersection of Phuket and Phang Nga roads, they are popular spots for tourists and locals alike to photograph or paint. Now that a … Continue reading Daily Phuket #87: 1 December 2021 – Phuket Icons
Daily Phuket #35: 7 April 2021 – Pots on Top
Yet another morning with nothing much to do as the servers were down for my website, Philatelic Pursuits. I'd planned to spend most of the day working on updates to the site but the 502 errors persisted and my webhost support didn't fix it until later this evening. After an entire morning spent watching YouTube … Continue reading Daily Phuket #35: 7 April 2021 – Pots on Top
Daily Phuket #20: 16 March 2021 – Monks on Parade
The days and nights are relatively the same right now with only minor variants. It is still extremely hot with the warmest time of the day coming around 10pm. The lessons are still an uphill battle against students who are becoming lazier with each passing day; even the good kids are taking after their less … Continue reading Daily Phuket #20: 16 March 2021 – Monks on Parade
Daily Phuket #18: 14 March 2021 – Rasta Crossroads
I spent much of Saturday waiting for a freight company to deliver my new refrigerator, a replacement for the tiny one I bought during the pandemic lockdown nearly one year ago. There is even a freezer compartment so I can buy ice cream and other frozen foods and not have to consume them almost immediately. … Continue reading Daily Phuket #18: 14 March 2021 – Rasta Crossroads
Daily Phuket #17: 12 March 2021 – Postal Pillar Box
Friday. Gateway to the weekend. Payday, this time around (we get paid monthly on the 12th). Also, a very hot day as our unrelenting heatwave continues. Today was the first in more than a month that DID NOT see any class cancellations so it was a full day of climbing stairs in different buildings to … Continue reading Daily Phuket #17: 12 March 2021 – Postal Pillar Box
Daily Phuket #16: 11 March 2021 – Tourist Information Center
A busy Thursday at school and it's still the morning. I managed to leave my glasses at home so there is very little paperwork I can do between my lessons. I will keep this entry short as it's very much a blur as I peer at the screen. I had to do "gate duty" as … Continue reading Daily Phuket #16: 11 March 2021 – Tourist Information Center
