We have been getting drunk this afternoon!!! IUm hurt!!! Nic is in the hotel room watchging jazz funk and chinese thai psychedelllic adverts. Madness!!!!

Anyway wer have been up the KL tower yesterday which is the fourth highest tower in thw wo9rld it was pretty high.
Also we went the butterfly house, bird santctuary and plAnetarium all three werte pretty shit though. Not to worry.
The Kl tower was quite good. Very High and you can see an awful lot.
Guess thjats all i gotta say about that!!!

Shrimp loads of shrimp fried shrimp battered shrimp cooked shrim raw shrimp i guess i have eaten every kinda shrimp ya can think off over here i guess bubba, i mean Nici, is mighty proud of all the shrimp that ive ate.
Were getting the bus to singapore sunday and then we have four full days there i guess that may be a little too much as i dont think there is much to do there although i am about to research and find out. Until then fellow mortals.

Peace Out
La Mac Live, Signing out!

Kualar Lumpur

First Class Style To KL

Well we arrived in KL a few days ago and are here for around five days when we got to the airport at 10:45 in the morning we were told that are flight had been cancelled. bummer. The next available flight was 9:00pm. I was LIVID of course. So after hanging round the airport for a few hours we decided enough was enough and cancelled our flight and got our money back. We then went to another airline (bear in mind only two airlines travel from this tiny airport and they both only go to KL aswell, there next flight was booked up except business class. We whippped our insurance out to Air asia and they ended up footing the bill for our first class departure from Kota Baru to KL it was well good, big massive seets hot flannels brought to you, classical music being played food drinks before and afer flight. Bags first out of the plane etc very good.
KL is mad loads of western people here, guess cos it used to be part of th british empire loads of sky scrapers mad builkdings futurisic palava. We went to the aquarimum yesterday, us being budding fish faces now..... Today we are going to the butterfly park and whatever else is on the way there. Thats it for now home a week tommorow. Have it. Mum get me a fillet steak from tescos please......... im im talking the finest selecrtion there about 8 pound for two little fillets please please dont get the cheap stuff. If you loved me you will...... hahahah Thanks.

Weve been snorkelling with massive turtles on this island and also more sharks black tip sharks these were a bit bigger than the leapord sharks and looked like proper sharks.
Its extremely hot here too hot to sit out in the sun all day.
There are massive monitor lizards here just chilling on the beach also massive massive gheckos just chillin outside our chalet of a night time.

We havent seen any wild monkeys of yet but are assured they are on the island along with recticulated pythons and pit vipers. Scary.
Were going to go in the jungle in a few days so hopefully we will see some of these creatures then.

Ive uploaded some photos anyway See you all soon.
Smell Ya

brown Stains All Around

Thai Border and Malaysian Insights

sunny 28 °C

Good Evening Snot pickers its 21:46 here on the 15th March But first

Previously on uncle travelling macs adventures.

Well we have left the island of Phi Phi only to board a most tretchouros of coach journeys accross the Thai Border. We got on the mini bus at 12:30 hours and finally departred the sweat ridden bucket on wheels at around 9pm. It was a 10 seater the air conditioning was dire to say the least i had this big sweed sitting next to me with a vest on. When i looked at his back it was covered in spots looking like they were boiling under his skin. To make matters worse he was asleep at certain points in a sweaty van pushing his foul purtrusionous spots against me it was horrid. He was taking up more then his fair share and still wanting More. Bastard!!!

Anyway we got dropped off from the coach at the thai border which was very strange i had one foot in thailand and one in malaysia we had to go to border control it was all very starange and im sure we could have just walked through. After we had got our passports stamped we were in this shady little village, desolate, we ended up being befriended by a malaysian fella who took us to this little fishing village.
Stayed in a shack of a hotel it was only 4 pound a night. We ended up just having a fan in our room it was roasting and to make matters worse we were woke up at around 5:30am by muslim chants. Nics brown stains came out once again thembeing terrorists and all.

Ha ha

Anyway we had to go back to the border to pick up some money that Nics mum has kindly lent us, it was much needed thanks Juney!!

We boarded the fast boat to the perhenthian islands which are just off malaysia. The boiat was quite full and me and nic had to sit right at the front. Bear in mind its a long boat i mean like a big canoe with massive boat engines attached to the back. As soon as we hit a wave we flew right up in the air then crached back down to our seats. It got progressiveley worse as the journey went on.

Anyway we landed at the Perhenthinan Besar, WOW, WOW, WOW, best place we have been too yet hardly anyone hear crystal clear waters white snads loads of marine and coral. Amazing. Were going yto find more sharks tommorow and get us some turtles to make soup with!!!

Im going to put some pics up now.

Chow For Now
