We left Kota Bharu and boarded an 9 hour jungle train which, surprisingly enough, took us into the jungle - Temara Negara, allegedly the oldest rainforest in the world.
After weeks of boring each other senseless, we finally made some friends who aren't freaks - Katie from Streatham and Ruth from Wiltshire who is the female Ray Mears. They dragged us, sweating and bleeding, up a mountain and then through dense jungleness to a wildlife look-out point. We saw elephant footprints, some elephant poo and even heard one wailing but alas, there was no sighting. Instead, there were lots of spiders, rats, lizards, mozzies and wasps. However, on a night safari, we did see leapord cats, poisonous snakes, wild boar and other beasts. Shame we forgot our camera.
Stuck in a dry town without even an Irish pub we were forced to spend Saturday night - St Paddy's day - drinking fruit juice. We decided it was time for some normality so we headed to Kuala Lumpur. In between Starbucks and Skol/Guiness fixes, we visited the rather awesome Petronas Towers, the KL Tower, one of the world's largest mosques and TopShop.
FYI: Malaysians love Michael Owen, WWF
wrestling and need to improve their cooking.
