The wonderful Wizard of Oz; where was I? Oh yes yesterday was a totally non productive day. I woke up feeling like death, managed to drag my self down for breakfast (hoping some food & a cup of tea would make me feel a little better) then went straight back to bed where I stayed till around 4pm. Ben went out for a walk and got his hair cut for 10 dollar and tried to keep himself amused but he gets board so easily. We eventually went out; took the tube to little India and 10 minutes later we were on our way back to our room as I still felt bad. A few hours later we went out for some tea, well Ben ate I just watched then when we got back to our room we saw on the news that it was the last night of this banking conference that's been going on and there is to be a big firework display down by the river where we were last night (which explains the cannon firing sound). So after a quick shower (I know I forgot to mention about the lovely power shower we have here, but still oh to have a bath) we jump on another tube and line up on the bridge with the other hundreds of people who have seen it on the news too. I tell you what though we are so glad we made the effort to go down, it was amazing and I reckon we got some pretty good pics too with both cameras. After we walked past Coffee Bean for an ice cold Belgian Choc (coffee come choc smoothie ice thing topped with cream) and headed off home; we were supposed to be packing tonight as we finally leave for Cairns tomorrow all beit 2 months late! - Yippee!!

Singapore is ok, but bloody expensive; especially for beer and cigs, prices are about the same as back home. Singapore is called the Fine City because you can get fined for just about any thing! Given the choice between here and KL, I'd go back to KL any day!

Today' the day. . .

Neither of us got much sleep last night probably due to the fact that we did fuck all yesterday. I still don't feel too good; I have an ear infection again (it clears, then comes back and all this nasty gooey stuff is coming out not that you really needed to know that) and I am not looking forward to the flight tonight. So we have breakfast and pack; wait, something isn't right here these bags have packed way too easy and they don't feel so heavy????? We check out and have a few hours to spare so we take a tube to some part of Singapore (I forget the name) wondered round a bit and ended up going to the cinema just to cool down cause it is so flaming hot! We watched 'Devil wears Parada' we both thought it was quite good, after which we collect our bags and head off to the airport nice and early so we have plenty of time to chill before our long flight.

Oh my god you can txt the cab firm to come and pick you up and then pay your taxi bill by credit card! What is the world coming to? KMC you are so far behind the times!! We pay cash as we have a few dollars left and wonder aimlessly around this huge airport which incidentally has a pub on the roof where you can have a beer and a cig - its way nicer than sitting in one of those poky glass pens they usually stuff us all in! Oh by the way we are allowed 20 k each baggage allowance in this flight and would ya believe it ours totaled 39! Though if they new how much the hand luggage weighed they'd have charged us double!!!

Okay time to board this plane, see ya in Oz. x x x
