Next stop, the very beautiful Perhentian Islands just off the East coast of Malaysia and some of the most beautiful beaches we've seen yet!

I managed to hear the bus time wrong and ended up with a mad dash to try and get the boat! We made it though as always and boarded what we thought was our nice 'taking it easy' slow boat across to the islands! We got on the boat and the driver said to us, 'Well actually there is no slow boat today, this is a fast boat therefore you need to pay more'! Nice of him to tell us once we were a captive audience on the boat eh??? So being the 'accommodating having no choice' people that we are, we paid up and enjoyed the ride?????!!!! OH MY GOD!!! You could definitely say it was a fast boat and literally jumped every wave landing with a huge BANG after each one! We both had back-ache for the next couple of days and managed to leave our recently purchased 'Get Dawn clean items' such as new deodarant, shower gel, etc overboard!!! Excellent AND we had to pay extra for the experience! On arriving at the islands, for one reason or another, I ended up jumping out of the boat as we were approaching the shore, misjudging the depth of the water and ending up in water up to my armpits, fully clothed much to the amusement of everybody else on the beach! But that's another story!!!!! That's one we'll save until we get back!! Hee Hee! Highly amusing!!!

We basically spent our time here doing absolutely nothing apart from relaxing! We had a great chalet with great views of the beach and bay! They were having abit of a delayed monsoon so lots of rain, rain, rain in the evenings and early mornings but this just added to the drama of the scenery! Luckily we managed to get a slow boat back to the mainland thus saving our backs and toiletries from anymore unnecessary stress! Hee Hee!
