So im finally getting round to saying hi again! I am in Perth just now, made it here safely and luckily for me not on the qatas flight that dropped from sky for few secs...i was the flight after that...luckily they kept that hush from the airport and i didnt know till Bill told me at the airport! hmmmm...
My Malay tour has finished and i was sad to see it end and leave my 4 new girlfriends that i have just spend the last 15 nights with! There was a few tears but luckily for me 2 of them live in the East Coast of Oz and Anna is travelling round oz too, so we're all hoping to meet soon.
The rest of my tour was amazing. Went to Penang, Cameron Highlands, Kulur Lumpar, Melaka and then Singapore! Wasn't that fussed about Penang, it was quite busy and not that much to do i thought, spent two nights there but i was glad to leave. From there we went to Cameron Highlands which was a 7 hour drive but it was worth it. C.H is famous for it's tea plantations, owned for years by a Scottish family! So it's very high up the mountains and inland. It was freezing, much cooler than rest of Malaysia, was great!! i loved it! We only spent one night there but we got a tour of the Boa tea plantation, then we went to a strawberry farm too.
From there to K.L which as pretty spectacular!Stayed 2 nights and got to go up the hightest building on the first night to see the view and the city by night, was amzing. Then to the Patronus towers for night view! Next day we went up the towers to the bridge in between them and had a tour then went shopping! Sadly this is the day my tooth ache started with avengance! My widsom tooth was causing severe pain so i was miserable and had to call home with some tears...haha, first call home and i was so upset cause i couldn't eat or sleep with pain. Didn't know what to do excpet call my mum...poor her! it was 8am on saturday morning! Also poor Pamela's phone bill!
My team leader got me some very strong painkillers but that was all i could do, take them and deal with it, oh and live off soup and rice for next few nights. As days went on it did start getting better and by time i was in Singapore pain was nrearly gone only sore when eating. Singapore was amzing, only there one night sadly but got a full day out of it. We done a walking tour of city, was so clean!! We seen the merlion, where the F1 was held, then wetn back to hotel to get ready for our last night. Which we spent by heading out of town to Singapore Zoo for the night safari!! Was so much fun! i highly recommend this to anyone!
Next day i flew into Perth and was met by my Aunt Linda's uncle, Bill! He is lovely and is putting me up in his lovely home in Perth for however long i need. He made me an appointment at dentist for wed morning and took me there next day. I got seen by a dentist at 9:30am, got check up, x ray then told tooth needs to come out asap, or it will continue to cause me pain. Great. HE said i'll just do that now shall i!! i went and told Bill and we decided it was better to get it done now before my next tour on the Fri...I was out the dentist by 10am! The injections and numbing stuff took longer than him removing the tooth! the guy was great! It has been bit sore today but i've only needed few painkillers and other than that i have been fine!
After dentist yesterday Bill took me drive round Perth, we went to King's park for walk, was lovely!! Looked right over the swan river onto the city. Then early night to bed for me as i was shattered. Today after lazy afternoon Bill took me to Perth Beach then a wee drive around the different coastal towns before heading to Fremantle for look, we popped into his son and Wifes, David and Sharon's for cuppa then home for dinner and a lovely red wine...yup im now enjoying red wine..who would have thought.
Im just updating this before i go to bed, im sleepy for all my exploring and travelling last few days and tomorrow i have to be at bus station for 7am for my next tour...Perth to Exmouth then back down to Perth. I will be doing camping and stuff on this one so sadly i don't think i'll have much internet access but if i do i'll say hi. Photos from rest of Malay tour and Perth will get uploaded when im back i promise! Too busy to get them up the now im afraid!
Really hope everyone is doing ok back in bonnie SCotland!! missing everyone lots, haven't bought Oz sim yet, getting it next week so hopefully i'll be able to txt my beloved girls and family then!
Big thanks to uncle John for helping with my dentist emergency! is greatly appreciated!
