our charter flight from malaysia! no food, no air con!!! :) fun!
well, from malaysia to brunei. wow!! ever since i have been friends with foo, i have always wanted to go to brunei. i got there and couldn't quite believe i was there! what a spin out!
we took a charter flight (air asia, which is the asian equivalent of virgin blue) from kl... no food, no allocated seats, and.... no air conditioning!! how we survived i'm not quite sure. the flight landed in labuan, malaysia, and from there we had to take a ferry to brunei. we arrived at the port - definitely an experience! now in case you're wondering, you can definitely fly to brunei and arrive in an airport as usual, but we decided we wanted to take the cheapest (and most adventurous 😊 ) way there!!!

again, lots of good food... mmmmm. we decided that we'd eat ourselves stupid in asia coz we probably won't be able to afford too much once we get to europe... 😊
