Sun 25th Oct:
Flight from Penang to KK this morn at 10am so picked up about 7.30, arrive around 1ish to more blazin heat - 34 degrees, we were proper backpackers an waited over an hour for the city bus as a taxi was gonae be a fiver but the bus was only 36p each lol lol, finally got to our hostel... well we thot we had an ensuite but nope shared toilet an shower here but other than that rooms dark but ok we guess lol, the area tho is pretty mingin an really dirty plus there is a constant mingin smell of the local markets - am sure u can all imagine not good!!!
went for a wander around the place holdin our noses, people not very nice here like to stare at u in a creepy way, we're only spendin 2 nights in this part thankfully.
went down to the waterfront to have a few beers driks quite expensive here so will only be a few lol, watched man utd an liverpool game then headed home, on way we passed anther roland, again the furry kind.

Went to Manukan island today on a speedboat, boat was cool island was nice just chilled on the beach for few hours only 15mins away from city centre but feels like a million miles away! Both of us pretty ill today an not due to the beers, more dodgy food am afraid only this time it was just plain noodles so they obv dont clean their woks!!!!!!
bk to the safe option had a burger king for dinner then headed bk to the waterfront an had a few beers in an irish bar, then a big team of guys came in that looked like the all blacks lol some rather nice! so Laura we did meet them hahaha!!!
