11:00 Got up late with tiring legs. It was in fact early morning when we actually slept.
Checked out of Bella Vista and Brunched at Madras cafe
13:00 Scary Bungee Jump by Kumar, Sathish; followed by me.
It looked do-able at first but heart started pounding when we got our legs tied to Bungy ropes. And when the crane went higher and higher, OMG freakin scary. The free fall when I jumped off was quite an experience… Pheww..
14:00 Awesome fun while Karting. I overtook almost everyone, but my car broke down in the last lap 😦
15:00 Traveled in a bus back to Bangkok. We were a bit emotional as we'd already had great time in Pattaya.

Jan27 (Phuket):
07:30 Scuba Day, with Andy
11:00 Under water fun begins, first dive at Racha Noi.
I'd initially thought its gonna be fun swimming under waters, but believe me, its a bit scary, not so easy for first timers at least. We given a booklet and our diving instructor told us about Scuba equipment and all..we hardly listened to what he said..
The fun part was getting ourselves ready in Diving gear which includes heavy weight belts, diving regulator in your mouth, buoyancy controller on your chest, heavy oxygen cylinders on your back, wet suit, face and nose sealed off in diving masks, fins on leg.. !!!! You cant even move with all these on your body. 
Fun Part ends here !!!. our boat stopped midst ocean, and we were asked to jump off into deep oceans. 
Everyone were panicking losing, super scary.. you cant even talk or breathe from you nose.. We had to perform basic exercises before we dived In. Water pressure kicks in when we dive deep. Ultra the mental experience.!!!
13:00 Second dive at Racha Yai. This was the best dive of the three. I got used to diving a bit by now. It was as if like in Zindagi Na Milegi Dubara, when we saw colorful corals, school of colorful fishes. We were also lucky enough to see a Manta ray.
15:00 Third dive at shallow Bangla bay, Racha Yai.
21:00 Back in Patong, we strolled around and had dinner at Pizza Hut in a mall in Patong.
22:00 Walked around in Bangla street, which was almost like in Pattaya Walking street.
