Well it's all been a little more relaxed since the last entry!
When we got back into Malaysia, we went to a place called the 'Cameron Highlands' - they have loads of tea plantations there and it's quite high up (obviously!) and was supposed to be really scenic - nope! It was a complete waste of time, really expensive and quite built up. It was quite cool temperature wise though so it made a nice change not to spend the entire day sweating like pigs (nice!). We went to visit a tea plantation there, which was ok, but nothing special. The food was absolutely revolting too! In the first place we went to Guy ordered a chicken curry and I went for a nice and safe (or so I thought) noodles with chicken - well Guys chicken had hairs and veins coming out of it and mine looked so grim that I only ate the noodles, but as soon as I had finished them I realised that one of the bits of chicken was an entire pigs snout - I felt so sick afterwards
We only spent a day there and after that we made our way down to Kuala Lumpur. There isn't a huge amount to do here, but we've managed to pass the time easily enough since we're staying in a rather nice hotel (courtesy of my mum!). My mum's here now too, and we've basically spent the whole time sunbathing or shopping, with the occasional spot of sightseeing! We went on a tour yesterday, which involved such fascinating attractions as a pewter and batik factory, thrilling! It also went to some caves that were reached by 272 stairs - my mum wasn't too keen but I made her go up anyway. It was so funny on the way up cos she screamed and I thought she'd slipped or something, but when I turned around I found a monkey growling at her - it seems she'd been concentrating so hard on holding onto the handrail that she didn't notice the monkey sat on it, which she nearly grabbed in its nether regions!!! Ha ha ha, it was so funny! We went up the Petronas Towers this morning (used to be the tallest building in the world) and are heading back to enjoy the jacuzzi now - it's a tough life!
We're flying to the island of Langkawi tomorrow, where we're hoping to have a sunny Christmas. It doesn't feel like Christmas at all without all of the rain and cold weather, but we're not complaining!
