    ... and I were ecstatic as well knowing that EACH board costs at least $300 USD plus shipping. We thanked the crew profusely for their help and they happily departed with big smiles – their first ‘yacht’ (pronounced YAWCHT) repair complete!

    Our trip to Brunei proved rather expensive and somewhat disappointing. We only spent one night there but the whole trip cost us more than $800 – for the ferry, hotel, meals and then the $50 USD PER SIGNATURE from the ...

    ... we touched down in Kota Kinabalu I was starting to wonder if I'd got this all wrong. The shiny new airport came complete with McDonald's and Dunkin' Donuts!! To be honest I think it would put a lot of Australian airports to shame. After purchasing our taxi voucher (flat rate of RM30 = $10 for the trip into the city) we caught a cab to our hotel. The driver spoke English, didn't break any road rules, didn't have his cab ...

The 13km whizzed by and ...

    ... We had certainly had our adventure on Mt Kinabalu!! A couple of hours after breakfast it finally stopped raining and what a difference it made. The climb down was actually pleasant - we barely stopped as we were charging down to get our late buffet lunch. We felt so good when we saw the famous Timpohon Gate with the sign 'Welcome Back Climbers'
    At our late lunch we sat on the balcony and the clouds had cleared and we finally had a clear view of the summit. I ...

    ... We were all hungry and so we were taken by our lovely driver to the restaurant in the Rainforest Discovery Centre. We all sat together and decided to order a buffet lunch, together choosing traditional food. What a palava it was, they couldn't seem to make up their minds what to choose yet it was so simple to do....get something of everything then pool it all together and all dive in! Oh no, too simple, it was a good half an hour of "deciding". Wasif was ...
