        The place was clean, showers were fine. TV is on its last legs. You get toast, tea and coffee included. We stayed in a double room (it also had a bunk).

        To celebrate our previous climbing feat, we decided we'd go out, get some beers, and eat plenty more. We got some roti, all types from sweet to plain. At the hostel, I invited two Danish girls to join us for drinks at a place called Upper Star. They were already headed there, so Neil, Keel and I met them there. Us three musketeers bought a Heineken …

        ... next few days in KK we didn't do much at all, we took another trip to the local island and enjoyed the great little beach on it, took advantage of the cheap cinema and watched another film and took advantage of the great little food market. But after a lot of diving and travelling it was nice to not do anything for a few days and recharge the battery's. Luckily my ears improved by the end of our time in KK, then it was time to leave borneo and Malyasia and catch our flight to ...

        We snorkeled for about an hour enjoying a lazy time of wonder seeing ...

        Day 44. A cloudy morning did nothing to dispel fears of another poor day's weather. Our pessimism was unfounded however as the clouds parted and sunshine broke through. We lazed by the pool, basking in the sunshine and swimming a few lengths. It was imperative for us to soak up as much sunshine as possible given our impending trek. As the afternoon slipped by, we bought ...
