Ok so Pheebs has now joined me on my adventure. She waited (get this) 10 hours at the airport in singapore and it was so good to have a hug from Pheebs. We quickly jumped in a cab and arrived at the hostel she had booked...straight to bed, as it was 2am, then up the next morn for a little look around - we went into chinatown for some street market food and ate this wierd pineapple rice thing, which was served inside a pineapple! We went on a wild goose chase to book bus tickets across to KL the following day and went to a Night Safari which was like a zoo, but at night so we saw flying squirrels, which flew over our heads, clouded leopards, rhinos and these things called slow loris's - which reminded us of sara rush...great! Next the long bus trip over to KL - in the pouring rain. We had som more street stall food and hit the sack - boring i know, but it gets better - so we checked out KL and its mental hustle and bustle.... beeping horns shouting people and random women transporting whole marinated chickens up back alleys - blah (glad we didn't eat any chicken!) Then we flew to where I am now in Borneo we had more monsoon-like weather and then a ridiculous trip on what was meant to be no longer than a 6 hour bus over to Sepilok, where the Orangutans live! So after about 2 hours Pheebs gets serious travel sickness - we were on THE rank-est bus ever, which we didnt choose the crazy men at the bus stop fought over us to get us on thier coach...so we are swerving about inbetween the stench of sweat and wee, from the onborad toilet, until we stop and pheebs as a little puke and others brave the toilets (termed loosely - as they are actually holes in the ground) then we head off, pheebs still white as a sheet and me just damn kranky.... then we hit lots of traffic - and bearing in mind there is only one road that gets you from point A to B this is a LARGE concern. so we've beeen on the bus just over 6 hours.....and luck (pah - hardly) had it that one lady on the bus translated whatever metal language they were talking in.... apparently we had stopped due to the road falling apart!! hello!! roads dont fall apart - anyway this one had! so we waited, and we waited, and quess what - yep, waited some more..... it grew dark and most the coach had decided to walk to 2k through the river thst had pushed the road apart and leave us with the bus and an illusive driver. He had vanished for about 4 hours. He then came back and told us we we're going back, but we had to wait inthe que until the road was fixed, maybe tomorrow morning, he said..... me n pheebs now slightly worried - sleeping over night in the middle of coconut plantations sounds tropical i know, but it was frightening. We had made friends with another coiuple - one of which was the translator (phew) and they stayed over night on the bus with us.... so 24 hours later and there is daylight - we set off, over the gap that had been filled - i have photos - it was massive and trucksd had crashed into the ditches - absolute madness.... so we took a little side road throught the platations and we arrived (serverly lacking any sleep) at the Orangutan sanctuary!!!! yeah!!!!!!!!!! We got showers and headed straight in - it cost next to nothing to go and watch the orangutans being fed in the wild and the cheecky monkeys (smaller ones) were running riot everywhere. dont worry i have video footage, the lot. we went for bothe feedings and didnt miss a thing. we both agreed it was well worth it! thank god! today we lounged in the sun, which was well deserved as we have not stopped moving since we met up, and we caught the bus back over to KK today. just arrived after continuous DVDs on bus made us sleepy (apart from the last one which scared the living daylights out of pheebs so much she had to put her eye patches on and ear plugs in) We fly back to KL tomorrow then out to North Thailand...well thats the plan - we just need to book some more flights. So the main thing is i didn't get bitten by any monkeys or hi-jacked in the night by mad Malaysian's...yey!!
