13:19 I came out today, I did get a little bit of cabin fever yesterday so I'm glad to be up and out with the world today. So after breakfast I hopped on the bus and came back to Batu Ferringhi to see the hotel my parents honeymooned in - the Rasa Sayang. It was gorgeous! It's been a while since I've been anywhere really nice and I'd forgotten how luxurious things could be with shiny marble surfaces, glass chandeliers, beautifully manicured gardens, shimmering blue swimming pools surrounded by beach style thatched umbrellas and sunbeds with well dressed, impeccably polite staff serving your every need. Oh yes, I think I wouldn't mind a few nights doing that. On the downside, I have become SO accustomed to paying so little for perfectly decent accommodation, I'm wondering if I could ever really part company with so much money unless it was a very special occasion (like a honeymoon!) because from now on I think my holidays, ok 'travels' will be pretty budget even if I am earning an entire months wage in a week (hopefully)- I have some big plans ahead to occupy my single life, and if the last 30 years are anything to go by, I am mostly always very reluctantly single so I'd better get used it and fill my life in other ways.

I digress, which I always do, from what I was doing, which was enjoying Batu Ferringhi Beach. I found somewhere to sit, right next to the beach where I had a drink and just enjoyed the view of this White sand, turquoise sea, green hills in the distant on the coast type view with soft music played a-la-panpipes over the speakers. It's all very peaceful and very pretty.

23:19 I've just spent the evening having dinner with Anna and Josh again who are currently living here, it was a lovely evening!

Ah yes! I remember it well.
There is a picture of me leaping in the surf on that very beach!
