We got the bus from Singapore to KL - wow it was soooo luxurious if only travel around the world was like this all the time you would never be tired from journeys - we got a nice meal and cups of tea and biscuits but most of all we got SLEEP - check out the pics :-)

So we treated ourselves a bit its our 4 year anniversary and I needed a hotel with a pool to try and get some more practice in swimming for my PADI - I could do 400m no problem before I left home 4.5 months ago!!   Not only do we need to swim 200m in the sea we then have to tread water for 10 mins - aggggggggg.  So we head straight to the pool and it seems after my pain yest it paid off cause I managed to do around 300m - such a relief god only knows how its going to be in the sea as its the deep water that sets me off in a panic haha - what have I let myself in for !

We headed out to Chinatown for a wee wander and had some food - it was just another market selling nothing but handbags and sunglasses haha - we headed back for an early night.

Day 2 - WE ARE 4 :-)
Today is our 4 years anniversary since we got together, cant believe how fast time goes and how lucky I am to have my best friend and ma baby travelling the world with me :-)

Today we had our big buffet breakfast complimentary of the hotel - we stuffed our face then crawled back to bed hehe.  

Tonight for dinner we had seen this bar across the road that not only sold strongbow cider but it did a roast dinner - we decided to give it a try as we were both dying for a nice roast and wow it did not disappoint - it had lamb, beef and pork in it and it was delicious (not as good as yours of course mum) but wow washed down with a strongbow it was some treat :-)

Knickers & Shampoo
We then went to one of the big malls after dinner- I was in need of some decent shampoo and rumour has it this was the place - on the way much to my delight I saw a Debenhams - WOO HOO I was now the proud owner of some new bra's and best of all knickers that actually fitted me - travelling asia means small sized clothes and it has been an utter mission to get new knickers nevermind bra's - so good to have normal sizes it was exact same stuff as home hehe. The ones I bought before I had to make cuts in the leg as they were too small and that was largest ones I had found while travelling and believe me I have hunted long and hard for them.  I had met other girls with the same problem I am not weird honest haha thats where I got the idea to cut them!!  Then I found the salon with my nice hair shampoo I like so I stocked up - god knows what is going on but my hair keeps falling out - it seems to be the case with other girls I have spoke to but flaming heck it comes out loads when you shower - slightly worrying but apparently its to do with the water and the humidity !!!  I cannot wait to get to Australia to get my hair dyed and sort out this dodgy colour I am sporting - its been 5 months since I went to a hairdresser - completely unheard of for me :-((

Drinks with a view
Anyway after my purchases we headed to the Traders Hotel it has a really nice Skybar in it with great views of the Petronas Towers - it was all a bit fancy and great for a wee celebration for us - we treated ourself to a nice bottle of red, we had a great seat with no upper window so could see the towers perfectly, so cool - it was a lovely wee romantic night.

Tomorrow we fly out at 0715 to Borneo - I cant even think about it anymore I am so nervous about doing my PADI !!!  First we need to get some sleep as Marc is up at 0230 for the Man City football game then its straight to the airport.
