Where I stayed
Hotel Petaling aka brothel
Claire had to bail on me today and I can't say I blame her, (also had to get Phil a birthday present without him knowing so perfect opportunity) if I wouldn't have felt like a something something I probably would have. Yesterday it hurt to cough and it hurt to move. I did go, and after getting warmed up and into it, could forget most of the aches and pains, was good fun, much the same, only progression being sparring - a little weird, everything you know goes out the window and you concentrate on not being hit, whilst also trying to make yourself hit the person, it wouldn't take too long to get used too, but hitting your trainer for the first time doesn't feel quite right. Although, hit hard enough and that stuff goes out of mind, instinct takes over.
Joins back up with the gruesome twosome in the room, they'd done a little shopping and we finally got the energy to make a move, we walked, picked up laundry - shocking - smells almost as bad as when it went in and doesn't look much cleaner either, think we will go back to washing it ourselves, got some munch and headed back to room, our third member for the last month is leaving us for ten days to see her mum and dad, so we are green with jealousy knowing we still have to go 5 months till we see ours,
We headed to a tattoo shop in a huge shopping centre in a taxi, got a little lost trying to find the right shop but got there eventually, after speaking to the guy for a while we both got a good impression, compared to a guy we went to see in China town who was awful, he took a few pictures and then we headed back.
Day 223; (19th)
Last day of muay Thai boxing and it couldn't have come soon enough for either of us, it is fun but as we have taken part in any physical activity in a long time it is such hard work and so painful, can't cough with out screaming in pain, it went well have to be honest I sat out a lot of it, I'm not one who carries on once I'm hurt, Phil carried on I even got to whack his stomach with a pad which is always good free beatings! (Just incase anyone thinks I'm mental, they do this so you keep the stomach muscles working the whole time instead of relaxing them) It definitely works but it hurts even more.
We headed back to shopping centre had a quick burger then went to check out what the tattoo guy had drawn up, it was all good, Phil was happy with most of it so they started, the pain towards the end (4 hours later) was starting to show on Phils face, I think both of us were glad that it had got to a point to finish for the day!
Day 224; (20th)
Another 4 and a half hours in the tattoo place and it was finally finished, well say finished had done as much as Phil had wanted, but pretty sure it will all be complete by the time we get home.
Phils birthday today, we did presents went for walk changed rooms and got lunch and dinner, didn't really do anything excited hopefully we can have a good night out somewhere in Indonesia! Where the budget might stretch a little further fingers crossed!
