Bye Bye Chris and Steve xxxxxxxxxxx

Colombo, Sri Lanka


This morning we awoke far too early to catch our plane to Malaysia. The hardest thing however was saying goodbye to Chris and Steve...

A little note to you both... 'Thanks so much for treating us we have had a fantastic time with you both and we will both miss you loads and Steve, it's such a shame we didn't video you doing your widths!'

Our flight wasn't too bad considering it was a cheap budget flight only costing £40pp. It did in fact arrive 25 mins early!

Then after buying a local sim card ad topping it up with credit (that didn't work) we headed off to find accomodation. We managed to find somewhere not excatly cheap but really nice at £32 pn and chilled out for the night pretty exhausted and ordered a Dominoes PIzza!

Walking around Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


Today we walked for hours and hours around KL enjoying the sunshine and planning what to do when Neil, Haze and Reggie come and visit us in 2 months...

Lovely day!

Oh, apart from the fact that we discovered this morning when changing our clothes that Chris left his favourite t-shirt and all of his underwear apart from pair he was wearing back in Sri Lanka! Good job there's a Debenhams in KL!!

Blisters...

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


We had a fanatstic day exploring KL once again. We went to the Bird Park which is the largest free-flight avery in the world and walked for hours and hours until our feet were covered in blisters


before going up the KL Tower

and ending up at another wildlife Sanctuary.

Malaysian food...

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


Due to the blisters on our feet we took it a little easier today.

I tried proper Malaysian food this evening. Still not convinced that I like it though! Dessert tasted like dentist mouth wash mixed with soup whilst the soup was a little bland...

Chris will KILL me for saying this though! I think I'm going to struggle the over the next few months with Asian food!

Last day in KL

Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia


Today is our last day in KL for a couple of months so we relaxed a smuch as possible before catching the monorail into town,

then a train to the bus station where we went to the LCC Terminal.

Our flight wasn't until 1am so quite a long day of just hanging around and waiting...

Flying...

Manila, Philippines


At just gone 1am we boarded our flight to Manila, the capitol of the Philippines which took around 3 1/2 hours.

When we arrived in Manila there was very little to do but take little power naps and drink rubbish coffee for 7 hours before our next flight to Tuguegarao

where we kindly were picked up Trev and taken to his beautiful resort in Sanata Ana! How exciting! We have a lovely room surrounded by lovely people for the next 2 months! Perfect!

Already getting stuck in

Tuguegarao, Philippines


Chris is quite in his element here in Trev's and Jo's resort already taking over the kitchen sharpening knives for hours and cooking his first Filipino dish, whilst I've been trying out my Excel skills drafting out spreadsheets and researching Valentine Menus!

A little recovery

Santa Ana, Philippines


Last night after I had already written the blog entry we stayed up late drinking with some of locals on the beach, one even sneakily stealing a bottle of our wine!! So today we were a little tender slowly doing some work taking a little rest bite on the beach occasionally; Chris doing a little fishing and myself some reading...

Windy, rainy weather

Santa Ana, Philippines


You would think we were in the U.K by taking a look at the weather here, so we have mainly been working inside on the computer in the kitchen today as there's very little else to do except taking a walk earlier when it stopped raining for 1/2 hour. We haven't even been in the pool or sea as yet as it's too cold!!

Work and chill, work and chill

Santa Ana, Philippines


We've just been doing a little bit of work followed by a little relaxing taking walks along the beach with Trev and his dog Max, we just hope that the weather clears up a little before Valentine's Day!
