Where I stayed

Flag of Malaysia  , Kedah,
Sunday, January 20, 2013

Woke up around 9.30am with the intention of taking the cable car up the mountain, but fell back asleep and after a while we just decided to leave it until tomorrow and head to our usual haunt, the pool.

Around 12pm we arrived at the pool and again had it to ourselves, it was probably the hottest day we've had so far and the pool was a God send. Unfortunately our tranquility was disrupted when three Malaysian kids crept in and started sploshing all over and in particular right up close to where we were both reading our books. They were screeching and laughing, and realising how annoyed we were both becoming they rudely made their splashes ever closer to us. Paula gave them the stare!

When an old couple arrived to swim we were comforted to know it wasn't just us they wanted to splash as they dived in within inches of the old woman's head. It turned out that they were the offspring of the visiting gardener, who dropped the critters off at the pool whilst he carried out his contract work at the complex - little shits!!

By 4pm we were both hungry and tired of feeling agitated, so we changed in the hotel and headed back to Laila's for an early dinner of salad, humous and fish. The waiter on bringing the food out then hesitated before leaving our table and turned to us and asked if we were "sisters, friends or....", we enlightened him and he walked away smiling. Bill paid, including some loose Thai coins we 'accidentally' got rid off, we got some supplies from the local mini-mart and headed to our room.

At dusk we grabbed our vino and netbook and headed to the pool for a travel blog session, this was supposed to be a nice relaxing drink!! Everything worked out a little bit too difficult, between the tealights blowing out, the mosquito's feasting on Vikki and Paula not being able to sit down due to a massive cicada crawling in front of her we decided to adjourn to the hotel balcony. Here we continued to regail our travels on the blog (as per this text), finished the wine, smoked a little and called it a night.

Cable car tomorrow....
