How to spend our last day.......easy......you need to do all the things to prepare for your next adventure in Laos, with a stopover in Kuala Lumpar. We therefore had to pack and then find an internet facility. Our really good place was closed as it was a Sunday morning. You really do lose track of which day of the week it is.

WE printed out all our travel vouchers, or Hels did while I updated the Blog. We also wrote 15 postcards but I am not telling you who we sent them to!

We went out to the Waterfront again tonight to explore the Seafood restaurant at Kota Kinabalu City. However we eventually decided to eat at the incredible night market with a wonderful variety of fish, of all sorts and all sizes. We nominated a huge BBQ fish with two massive prawns the size of two small lobsters, with rice and pickles. We thought the pickles were free how the locals were diving in but we had to pay. Split the cost with some Aussies who had asked us what the food was like, and then sat with us. Cost was 90RM about 12 pounds including our drinks. Certain that there is a two tier price structure for locals and tourists but what the heck.....our local fish restaurant in Gt Yarmouth would have charged us 50 or 60 pounds for a fish and prawns this size......although I have to say that I have never seen prawns that big anywhere in the UK. Hopefully get some photos up.

Nice to hear from Heather, Dave and Doreen our Aussie mates we met in Hoi An, Vietnam. Dave will write back to tell me that Aussie prawns are bigger and taste better but he was originally from Yorkshire so what would he know about the Aussie way of life after only living there for 35 years.

Back to pack for flight to KL and overnight stay at airport hotel.
