      Nice guy but not secured

      Omar is a very nice guy but his place is unsecure as hell. Door locks are broken and the main entrance is only close by a grid which doesnt locks. Our rooms has been visited by some stranger in the night.

      ... ask the guests how they are we were told to shush or given a black look. We subsequently found out that the helpxers that were there before we all arrived had been sacked for being too friendly with the guests??!!

Along a corridor, down an escalator and on to another bus to drive a short distance to Singapore customs where we walked up more steps, escalators and ...

      Our journey started from the Mersing passenger's jetty. We(me n my brother) booked a ferry ticket for 9:30am and we waited at the jetty since 9:00am I can really felt that I’m back in Malaysia when we don’t board the ferry until 10:30am.
