A belated happy birthday to my nephew Alfie who was 6 this week.
After my excursions of the last few weeks of walking, jungle trekking, exploring caves and sleeping in the back of beyond I have spent the last week relaxing in Kota Kinabalu. I managed to get to the beach for the day on the tiny island of Sabi.
I spent the rest of the week enjoying the city and stayed at a great place where most people did the same thing and used the surroundings to unwind.
It was also a good opportunity for me decide where I was going to be for christmas and to plan my next port of call and book a few flights, so I'm off to Indonesia via Singapore, I also wanted to come back to Kuching as I loved it so much and met up with Angela who has invited me to spend christmas with her family that I stayed with so I may travel back here for that.
I have really enjoyed Malaysia and there were so many highlights and the people made it even more special. Other than the obvious beautiful surroundings and sights, silly things also make me happy including my discovery of coffee bread! I will repeat that "Coffee Bread" as anyone knows those are 2 of my favourite things and to find them combined, well let's just say I had to indulge. Another magic moment was watching the malaysian football team beat indonesia is the SE asian games final in a local bar, the people went bonkers.
