      ... We am sitting beside a window exit so are not worried you cannot exit by the door. See the picture of the exit attached. I would hate to do this ferry crossing when the weather was bad. Today's was calm and the ferry certainly had some very rock n roll moments. My stomach came up to my throat a few times. A few people started throwing up which only found me feel more queasie. No wonder it is shaped like a cigar and it is fully enclosed. We arrive in KK and look for ...

      ... just off the coast of KK and a short boat ride away from Jesselton Point Jetty via speed boats, cost 6 return. You can also go Sea Walking here which mum, Rod and K did. We visited one of the islands- Sapi Island, known as cow island and should be renamed Monitor island due to the number of monitor lizards there.
      It was a lovely way to spend a Monday morning/afternoon.

      Tuesday we visited local landmarks- Atkinson Clock, a left over from Colonial days. One of the ...

      ... river in your lungs, this is a more gruelling task than you can imagine. The image of us all floating swiftly downstream was hilarious though, and we quickly caught our boat and clambered back in unscathed. After a good hour of paddling, we reached the restaurant where we had left our stuff, and preceded to devour some fresh chicken curry and rice. Unfortunately, it was then back on the train, in the now sizzling heat, ...

      ... After dinner and a bucket of (ice cold) beers we still had enough money in our daily food budget to order desert, a rare luxury. As you can see from the picture Kirsty is devouring my chocolate brownie before eating here ginger and chai cheesecake!!

      We did try to book on a trip to go up to Rasa Ria to see the Orangutan Sanctuary up there, but it was fully booked. So sadly we won't get ...

      ... tourists there who wanted to go where I was going, great I would ask for some money back upon my return, I wasn't one person anymore!! We carried on to the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary in 400 acres of mangrove forest and walked along the boardwalk to a wooden building with a viewing platform. Dozens of amazing orange coloured proboscis monkeys (big floppy noses for males, big pointed noses for females) were around us some with babies clinging tightly ...
