Last week I took time off to recharge batteries right before the Chinese Lunar New Year. Spent nearly a week in glorious Phuket, Thailand. A huge portion of the days were involved reading under an umbrella, hat, Ray Ban sunglasses, doing afternoon walks on the sand and feeling very grateful. While on vacation, I used lots of Clarins SPF 40 and 50, Clarins After Sun lotion, Ultra Swim Chlorine Removal shampoo and Aveda conditioner, the UVB rays were powerful. Every day I was like the sun police trying to keep my tribe protected, reminding them to re-apply sun lotion like a mantra. There were people around me literally baking, most were European folk.
The JW Marriott resort has a lovely spa called Mandara, of course I paid a visit to take advantage of the treatments (more on this later). On the day before our departure back to Singapore, I opted for a Zoya pedicure right on the beach (brought my own polish and top coat), it cost about $10 plus the tip. The hotel was one of the nicest places I’ve ever stayed in Asia, it was our first time away since April last year.
