That's POO-ket. My father-in-law Chris opened the treasury of his merits (ie. billions of Hilton points from galavanting across Southeast Asia on business) and booked the whole family into a weekend on white sand beaches and pristine sapphire waters on the west coast of Phuket, Thailand! And when such a free gift of graciousness is offered - you better take it!
Watching the sunrise from atop the mountain next door is the Big Buddha, the world's largest statue of the master of enlightenment, made of Burmese alabaster and rising to over 45 meters of golden beauty. Can't wait to see him up close. In the meantime, off to the executive lounge to receive more indulgences before heading out to the earthly paradise...thank you Chris for your generosity and care!
