The monsoon season is definately over and we are feeling the heat! So far the actual travelling part of our journey has been very easy (touch wood it continues that way!) but we have discovered that we are both lacking in a vital skill....map reading! On our first day we managed to get lost during the day and walk round in circles looking for our hostel before realising that we got the name of the street wrong (Pauls fault) then during the evening a casual stroll to China Town ended up with us nearly looping back to our hostel after over 1 hour of walking around in 36 degrees heat trying to find it (Sarahs fault after Paul was demoted from map reading duties)....trust me, not something you want to do!
After seeing the Petronas towers today and we're ready (and very willing) to leave tomorrow to head to Tioman island...a duty free heaven with hopefully a bit of a sea breeze. No too sure what the internet connections is going to be like there but we hope to spend around a week acclimatising ourselves to the heat ( ie sunbathing and not much else!) before heading on to Singapore.
One last thing I will mention is that we went to see Foot Master Dr Fish Spa today in one of the many huge shopping malls over here and had the experience of paying for fish to eat our feet! Yeah you heard right.....you pay for 30mins to stick your feet in a tank of fish that bite the dead skin off your feet (it aparently helps boosts circulation and about a dozen other things but thats what sticks in your mind!) I have to say it sounds wierd but was very relaxing and would recomend others to try it if you get a chance!
