We'd come to Day 3 of our stay at Novotel Karon, which was also our last day here. 
We went on to another resort on Day 4 which I'll update another time 😊
U may read about Day 1 here and Day 2 here. 😊
By day 3, most of the activities were on repeat mode~ 😝😝 no complaints, we enjoyed the repetitions!
But first, there was a small surprise awaiting the boys at Kids World. On the day we arrived, the boys were each given an envelope with a letter.
Lil K completed his quest and on behalf of Mini K too. He submitted the forms at Kids World. They then receive their rewards! Woah! πŸ“£I'm not revealing the contents in their bags, in case you're reading and planning a stay here 😊

Rise and Shine! It's Day 2 at Novotel Karon. We headed to the Horizon cafe where they serve buffet breakfast. Greeted by friendly servers & sumptuous spread!



Yes! U saw it right! That's a pancake machine. It dispenses 3 pancakes at a press of the button!Both the boys were intrigued by it and had pancakes for breakfast daily! πŸ˜… There're also melamine crockery specially for the children's use! No more worrying the kid might drop and break the bowl 😜 We brought the boys to the kids club after breakfast~ Kids World.
It's divided into 2 areas.

This section is for the younger kids. There is a small slide and ball pit, puzzles, building blocks, play kitchen and table toys.




And this zone's for the older kids, mainly TV games, arcade games & a small library. There's also movie-on-demand.
I was impressed with how neat and clean the kids club was! And the good range of toys/activities suitable for 6mo babies to teenagers, in fact even for the adults! πŸ˜„ After…
