          ... fish roe and edamame! Then we walked down the banks of the Singapore River to see the Merlion. We also saw a great light show at Marina Bay (Ben saw green lasers) and another light show celebrating Singapore's birthday at the Fullerton Hotel. Jon had a photo with some tourists - they liked his blonde hair! Then it was time for a treat and back to ...

          After the big fiasco that Scoot had recently I was a little nervous for my flight to Perth. I checked the status everyday, during the last few days leading up to my trip. Come the 5th, everything went blissfully smoothly. From the Early check-in I paid extra for, to a quick stop for Duty Free Alcohol and the relatively smooth boarding.

We saw people sleeping on comfy couches and then looked around at the lack of seating we had available. There ...

          ... 8 knots under full canvas, before anchoring just off Port Dickson for the night. We focused on the sailing rather than fishing, so we did not fulfill Bart's wishes on the finned front unfortunately, but we enjoyed our time together immensely particularly sunset cocktails on the trampoline and a beautiful baked Spanish Mackerel meal made by our on-board chef (a.k.a.

          In a way I envy Paul C as this is the first time he sets foot outside of Australia and dives head first in to the bowels of South East Asia; that is, the busy streets of Saigon and Hanoi to begin with.
