    ... all correct. The food here is spectacular, we have had some wonderful curries with rice, roti full of lamb and spices, soft sticky twice cooked pork full of chilli, vegetables cooked with garlic, pickled chillies, raw chillies, sticky sweet chillies, noodles covered in gravy or sauce with assorted meat and vegetables through it and dim sum of all shapes and sizes, including chicken feet. We are trying to eat in a different place every day, but I did manage to ...

    Further on we visited a Butterfly farm. We were able to walk around an enclosure with thousands of butterflies. Great for photos!

    We ...

    ... generally in the form of 20RM to avoid a fine, however the taxi man had a deal with the cops at the airport that he wouldn't get fined for parking in a bus zone if he bought them a pack of smokes a week. He then very proudly held up a pile of summons he had received - the pile at least 5cm high.

    ... out bright and early. We walked along the promenade which ran along the length of Gurney Drive alongside a fairly minimal beach. The sea wasn’t blue, in fact with the tide out it rather resembled Maldon mud flats. Gurney Drive consists of shopping mall after shopping mall plus lots of Western type restaurants and bars.
