The hotel has a rather tired look and feel but it is clean, well located, provides great service (tries very hard to be a 5 star) and is priced well compared to other hotels in Kuching's golden triangle.

... it eased up when we arrived at a beach site. Here we got to work collecting firewood and making a fire. The tribes people and some of the girls in the group started preparing the food. The women did the vegetables and the men felt with the meat. Everything was to be cooked in bamboo so the shoots were cut down for the forest.

And I've taken it to a camera repair shop, but they would have to open it to even begin to figure it out, and that would void the warranty. I have a back up camera, but it's only point and click and it too is giving me problems. So I think I'll ...

After his nap, he played on his new tiny train set (which looked enough like 'The' famous tank engine for us to call it Thomas, again a Kuching market special) and then took his next present to the beach to build sand castles. We had just about taken the spade out of the packet (see the timely-snapped photo for evidence) when the most colossal (and "scare-wee") thunder storm kicked in. We picked up armfuls of child ...
... the Indonesia part of Borneo and how poor it is! We then waited for about 4 hours for our boat to arrive in the baking hot sun and changed into lobsters. Not the best for Stephs illness. When the boat driver, Joanne, finally turned up he was dressed in a blue army suit ready to camouflage with the sea. He made us wait another half hour whilst he went back and forth refuelling the boat. Whilst he did this Rhianna was not impressed with her sunburn ...
