Thank you so much for all my birthday wishes...was lovely to hear from all of you xx
James and I are now on one of the 10th best Island in the world (According to our Asia rough guide) called Tioman, Malaysia. We left NZ on wed as it started to get really cold sleeping in our twinkle which we had no trouble selling in Christchurch for the same price we bought her for. We haven't lost out at all. Very sad to let her go though :-(
The drive to the south Island was very scenic! One side you have the ocean and the otherside beautiful mountains with the summit covered in snow!LUSH SCENERY.... Saw some sea eals on our way to christchurch. Amazing how extrimely lazy they are..
Arrived in Singapore on Thursday and made our way to Tioman Island the next day to spend the weekend of my birthday in paradise. Booked a duluxe chalet and spent the whole weekend chilling out. James treated me to a 4hr spa treatments! Was amazing! Started with head massage, full body scrub, followed by bath covered in tropical flowers and finished with full body massage and facial! NICEEEEEEE! Was floating around very relaxed after that. That wasn't all...As I returned to our deluxe chalet, I had champagne, birthday cake, party poppers, stars everywhere on the floor and table, party hats, balloons, mixed fruit plate, melted Ice cream...Poor James...there was a power cut, he kept having to returned to the shop to get some Ice cream...And to finish this off...Meal surved to our chalet...Sea food platter and lots more....It was very romantic :-)
Now we are on a the north of the Island back to our very basic accomodation with fan, mosquito net over the bed (which didn't not stop me for getting biten! gggrrr...bloody things!) and cold shower.....aaahhh...travelling life ;-)
Not too sure what our plans are next...going to stay here for a little while, do more snorkling. Saw a sea snake which is actually 10 times more venimous then a normal land snake, family of clown fishes and a sting ray much smaller then the ones we saw in NZ though....James is going to compete is PADI soon so we can go diving together as I entend to carry on with advance and adventure dives! The water is crytal clear here and very warm.......jealous??! Must be getting nice back home now though as it is spring???Anymore snow??
Anyway...lots of love xxxxxxx
Nu and James
