Highlights

Red Garden Food Market.
We ate here on both evenings because the food was so amazing. We had chicken satay, koay teow (seafood noodles- Malay specialty), melt in the mouth BBQ lamb which randomly came with spaghetti bolognese, spring onion and ginger FROG soup (quite nice actually but a bit boney), chicken butter masala with a garlic nann. I even managed to watch highlights of barca's first game here! 5-1 btw! 

Do it yourself bike tour of Georgetown.
We rented a couple of bicycles and spent the day seeing the sights on offer. Seeing as neither of us have rode a bike in years it was pretty fun and a great way of visiting the best colonial buildings on offer. Incredibly Jade didn't fall off and less incredibly my arse was hurting at the end of the day, luckily nothing a few beers couldn't sort out!

Reggae bar and restaurant.
2 pints of carlsberg, 2 fresh orange juice n 2 burger and chips all for 6.50! Bargain! Even had heinz ketchup.

Lowlights

Hairdressers.
It had reached the time to trust a Malaysian man with my hair. It started well with a lovely wash and head massage but quickly deteriorated when he tried to become some legend and create the latest hairstyle. I've now got some form of side fringe going on and paid 6 for the privilege.

Shopping with Jade.
It seemed simple. To find a dress for the beach. 500 shops and a day later we had achieved nothing. I was emotional she was frustrated, we left empty handed.
