... the weed out using a net. Not the most high tech method, but in a couple of hours, they managed to clear a good section of the lake so their hard work was commended. No one fell off the pontoons, which was sad. I had taken on the role as photographer / bag of weed counter but unfortunately multitasking had got the better of me and I gave one of the students the counting job, forgetting they might be bias and so the winning pontoon was hard to call. Job ...

New speed record…and another brush with death!

After a couple days contemplating how to get to Brunei, we decided that it just wasn't going to be worth the hassle to take the boat there with the formalities etc. The big attraction in Brunei was the cheap diesel fuel – subsidized to about $0.30 per litre (yes, you read that right!), but since we were only down about 100 litres it was not worth the formalities required to get the boat in there. Instead we ...

... even cheaper than before. It feels very bizarre shelling out next to nothing for the cinema, when we are so used to spending a fortune back home.

For our last full day on Borneo, we decided it'd be nice to visit another island, the supposed quiet one called 'Mamutik Island'.
To get there, we took a boat which left hourly from Jesselton Pier. The boat was fairly priced and took roughly one hour to reach the island, which was slightly longer than predicted due to the choppy ...

... open were Starbucks and KFC (they seem to love KFC over here, there's literally one on every street corner!), so we decided on Starbucks. I decided to order a green tea latte because it was the closest sounding thing to my usual drink at home, a chai tea latte. When it arrived, it was bright green and had a bitter aftertaste. Unsurprisingly, I didn't drink it all! We got through security and the flight was relatively ...

Sabah's finest beaches

... my last two days doing two islands. I did Sapi and Manukan. The return boat journey is 23 MYR from the Jesslepoint and the entry fee into the beach is 10 MYR. You can snorkel at both. I preferred the second island as you could do a train, had a sunset view etc.

If you head towards Sabah then I would definitely recommend doing the islands on the west side near Sabah and they are completely safe.

Happy traveling ...
