... was leaving on the 4pm boat with Simon and his girlfriend Jasmine which left Lea as the only member of the dive staff still on the Perhentians. We said our emotional goodbyes to Lea, Ana (the receptionist) and of course the little kittens. We arrived at the Perhentian islands in July with the idea of staying for a few days, now almost 3 months later we have finally left this beautiful little island. 3 amazing months that has seen ...
