Return to Penang
Hi... I was pleasantly surprised to see this blog as I am returning to Penang Jan 12 2013. I also lived in Vale of Tempe No 3 street in 1973 and my brother visited a few years ago unable to locate the house. We also lived in a house in Marie Pitchay which is still there. Can you give me the names of the roads / streets as they are now in Vale of Tempe ???? It must have been a great experience going back I am looking forward to it. I was 9 in 1973 . My youngest brother was 5 then. We left in 1976. I hope to receive your reply soon. Regards Cheryle

Life in Vietnam
A keen and sensitive observation of life in Vung Tau. I am a Canadian man soon to be leaving after one year here and share your sentiments and views; as free and relaxed as it can be there is certainly a huge dependence on alcohol. And I've had my share; it's difficult not to at this price if you enjoy drinking at all. Relationships are a curious thing, too, and it was nice to read about the couple from the mans apparently liberal perspective; there are certainly many dysfunctional interactions here and they transpire from both men and women. Thanks, Yuri

Hi there Caroline, I would love to help you out. The director is now a close friend of mine and we are in contact (perhaps not as much as I would like) from time to time. Can you please email me on I will then contact My Huong (pronounced meehoung) and let here know you are interested. Thankyou for taking the time to browse my blog also and my apologies for the delay. When I was abroad I checked in often and I dont check it much anymore since I have returned to Oz. Thankyou again and look forward to hearing from you. Michelle

Vung Tau Orphanage
Hi Michelle, I came across your beautiful story of your journey to Vung Tau while googling to try and find out more information about the orphanage. If you would be kind enough to talk or email with me to help me learn more about the orphanage I would be most grateful. I am interested to learn how to contact the directors in the hope that a school could visit with them and make a positive contribution to their wonderful work. I understand that the orphanage is supported in a small way by the Vietnam Swans sports club - so I'm hopeful that there is already a strong Aussie connection and an openness to receive visitors and volunteers. I hope to hear from you ... and your photos are just magnificent. Caroline

cab fare
If im not mistaken, the minimum cab charges in Jakarta is 30,000rp regardless the distance. A note for tourists in Jakarta - always go for BLUE BIRD or SILVER BIRD group taxis. They are known for their reliability, has an efficient telephone order service and always use their meter.

Hi Guys
hello Natalie, Thankyou so much for your lovely email. It was a real pleasure to spend time with you and James. Yes I am on my last few days in Indonesia too. Back to Vietnam on Thursday. I hope to come back end of year but we will see. I will most definately send those photos. I will send them in an email one at at time because I will leave the original size of pic so you can enlarge and not lose any quality. take care & stay in touch, Michelle

Post-Indonesia blues
Hi Michelle, I'm so glad I finally found your blog; it was difficult because I'd forgotten your surname. James and I made it home about a week ago now and although he's headed back to university, I still have a few more weeks off to spend back home in Northern Ireland. We were both so sad to leave Indonesia and it seems further behind us each day. Yesterday I printed off some of the pictures from the trip. It's strange how much more incredible it all seems when it's printed off in colour and pasted into a scrapbook. Each page jumps out at me, bursting with memories of every type and sense. Indonesia was an assault on the senses, a magical variety of everything; the wierd and the wonderful alongside the simple and fascinating. I loved your pictures of the Togeans, they brought me right back. I hope you find the time to email me those lovely pictures you took of James and myself, I so much want to print them and frame them for our new flat. I'll be looking forward to your next installments as I loved all your stories when we chatted on the islands. Best of luck for the rest of your travels. Lots of love, Natalie xx
