Stopping At Jungceylon Shopping Complex, Phuket - 4th Day Cruise Holiday.

The tour bus took us to the Jungceylon Shopping Complex at Patong. Before we alighted from the bus, we were told to return to the bus by a certain time and if we were late, the bus will not wait for us and we will have to take a "Tuk Tuk" transport to get us back to Patong Beach. Some shopaholics may get so carried away and forget the time! 
2.20 pm - We can find something to eat here.
The bus will be waiting for us here in front of the Big C Extra Supermarket.
This is the modern "Tuk Tuk" version (in red).
From the Big C Extra supermarket, we walked to the Robinson Department Store.

Inside the store, there is a food court where we ordered something to eat.
I didn't take any picture of the tom yam noodle and beef balls.
After lunch, we did some window shopping and came across these scary aliens.
They even have scary red eyes.

Back at Patong Beach
The boat was waiting to take us back to the cruise ship.
Before we left Patong Beach, took another snapshot of these messy power cables.
4.15 pm - walking on the bridge to the boat waiting for us.

The following photos are for joining Saturday's Critters.
These critters pictures were taken at a nursing home in Ipoh 
 A mother hen on a plank and 2 geese on the ground.
 During the day, these watch dogs are caged and let loose when night falls.
 This little doggie is so very fierce.
These chickens are free to roam within the enclosure.

You are free from the law,
but that doesn't mean you are free to do wrong.
Live as those who are free to do only God's will at all times.
