On my last full day in Penang I had booked a trip to Monkey Island,, which is just a bit further up the coast from my hotel, I have done this trip before and it is great fun. You spend the morning fishing off of the side of the boat, with a bit of fishing line with a hook on the end. No fansy stuff like rods and flots. Just you your line, hook and bait. Didn¡¦t catch anything this time, but you should have seen the one that got away fº.
We then headed for Monkey beach, The crew of the boat cooked up a lovely BBQ for lunch and what the bugs and ants didn¡¦t get I really enjoyed.
After lunch we took some on the left overs upto the edge of the jugle and waited for the monkey¡¦s to appear and on cue they did. Unfortuanlty the big male got there fisrt and kept chasing the little ones away, so that he could eat the lot. ¡V Greedy sod!
After the monkey¡¦s were fed we went for a little walk into the jugle, didn¡¦t really stay long as I had worn shorts-DOH! My legs looked like they had been attacked by a lunatic, the grasses on the edge of the jungel must be related to the pampus grass because they really cut.
I decided that the water was the place to be, so i hired a jet ski- WOW WOW AND WOW AGAIN. I have necer done this before and i had a great time ¡V I WANT ONE.
After that i was talked into parrascnding, - not a good idea. I hate hights and the image of my bum hanging from the sky can¡¦t be a good one. I was very scary and as long as i only looked up it was ok, as soon as i looked to the ground i thought the big moneky was goning to get more to eat than he bargin for.
After a bit of sunabthing and waiting for my lunch to stay were it was ment to be we headed back to the hotel. It was a fun day and the rest was spent next to the pool with a long cool drink.
I am back in KL at the moment and last night Kathrine and Bunny took me out for a great meal, it was nice to see some people that I know and to have a good chat.
I have had my picture develpoed from my under water camera and they are really good. I will try and post them home and maybe someone( dad) will be able to scan them onto this sight.
Well i only have a few hours before my taxi arrives to take me to the airport and i¡¦m off the Auckland.
More posted to come. Take care everyone
