    ... on the waterfront. On our last night we went for dinner at the waterfront with a real mixed bag of people from the hostel.

    There is not much to do the actual town of KK, it's a great place to fly in/out of and you can do some island trips but we were island-ed out for a while after the Philippines. And yes, I realise this entry is just about breakfast but I needed to put a point on the map so our journey made sense. Plus, when is our blog not about ...

    ... Sadly, it was time to go. I was very ready to be with my family, especially as Josh had returned from Melbourne while I was away, but far from ready to leave Malaysia. For me, there is something quite magical about the place and people. The trip back is from KK to Kuala Lumpur, then KL to Auckland where the team disperses, and finally AKL to the city of Blenheim.

    Day 57. We arrived at the hospital for morning handover to find an empty room, much to our confusion. The answer to our befuddlement was found in the CME; a biweekly, interdepartmental, multidisciplinary conference of sorts. We settled into the third row and then promptly switched off. The first of the talks (all spoken in Malay ergo utterly incomprehensible) was from the physiotherapy department and appeared to be a run through of the safe ways for ...

    ... about how beautiful she is and her hair being stroked for good luck, Rana is rocking it. She has even taken to flashing the Peace sign for her photos now, catering to her local fan base.

    When we weren't eating we spent our time hopping between one air conditioned super mall to another, or enjoying the complimentary skin peel that came with every dip in the pool at our hotel. An excellent start to the Asian ...

    Journey to the Equator

    ... was very friendly and he invited me to visit his campus when he arrived back in town in a couple of days so I could meet his students. The second part of the boat journey was horrendous, we hit a huge tropical storm and the debris in the river had to be missed but the driver could hardly see. We had the canvas roof on so the perspex window quickly steamed up, the heat inside was like an oven! I felt he could have slowed down a bit but instead he swerved the ...
