With a week left before our departure for our little adventure , we gathered with our closest friends to toast our impending departure. Although all but three guests were jen's friends it was very much a mutual celebration .

After the whole Wing Zip  / Wing Lee debacle (thanks Sarah) we all arrived through the snow and the evening started with a very civil meal in a private room , but this room was no ordinary private room , with a flick of a switch the room turned into a stage for some of the finest renditions of camp classics in a room with the finest karaoke facilities on that side of the industrial estate.

Once I had decoded the remote control which was purely written in Chinese the songs came thick and fast with probably the best rendition of "like a prayer" sang that night! . Everyone got up and did there bit with some people (jenny) hogging the microphone a little bit. But to be fair the rendition of Roooooooxannneee from Jenny will go down in karaoke history..........hmm.

All feeling a little horse we bid farewell to a few friends and headed toward revolution for a few more drinks .It was great to spend time talking to everyone but I am sure at this point our travel tales were wearing a bit thin ,the usual leg air guitar / falling on the floor / pants flashing trick was performed by Jenny and Sarah before we headed back to our lovely little home ( which we will miss immensely) for some final drinks and goodbyes to bring the evening to an end.

After performing the drunken Crab and smashing some candlesticks the evening came to an end at 5.am

All in all it was a better send off that we could of ever imagined , we agree it is one of the funnest night we have ever had , the karaoke was epic , everyone was on top form. thank you to everyone who made it a special night and we cant wait for a welcome home party!!

We would also like to say a we will miss our families very much and thank you for the meals and and the leaving presents ,

I hope you enjoy reading our blog and hearing of our adventures along the way, 7 months will fly by , we promise to be safe and not take a single day for granted!!!

See you all soon !!

Lots of love from Martin and Jenny
