Mum said they had a brilliant night out and that it was a very nice evening! Hope Dad didn't have too many Guiness and step on to the dance floor!
Response: Congrats on the promotion dude and good to hear from you!
I'm sure you're fast fingers (due many years of wielding the axe) would have been able to stun the spider in to a trance like state thus rendering it useless in tryingt o sting you and allowing you to simply tread on it as you leave the room in disgust! Haha!
Take it easy pal!
Response: I heard you guys were getting "papped" regularly after leaving the celebrity hotspot of Shaad! Actually that sounds like the name of a chintzy London club!
All good so far - no more brown pants incidents to report! A couple of close calls though!! hahaha!
Response: Ahhhh ok I could well have been fooled, but I know your culinary skills leave a lot to be desired from what you've told me! hahaha!
How about beans on toast?!
Response: Brilliant! Knew Big Trev couldn't let us down with some whiskey fuelled antics! I'll send him home a bottle of rice wine to try! That could result in some interesting behaviour!
Response: Who are you trying to kid "not from a tin!!" hahaha!
Next stop - Hilton Hotel!
Response: Hello mate,
Good to hear from you! Hope all is going well back home still! All good here mate in the warm climate; except from the recent bout of loose bowels!
Take it easy pal!
Response: Caught a match or two at the hostel in Miri and the pitches looked awful. Wasthed some of Ivory Coast vs Nigeria and it was dire! Even the Premiership players looked average. Then again the prospect of being shot if you don't play well must put you off your game!
Feeling a bit better now but never been so ill before! A guiness or two might sort me out, they do actually sell it out here but it's the old fashioned stout in a bottle they sell and I'm pretty sure they drink it warm too!
Send a hello to Uncle John for me!
Response: Yeah I know - it's just frustrating not being able to eat what I want at the moment that's all. I will snap out of it soon enough and get back to full fitness!
Will have to try and catch the movie when it finally comes out in this neck of the woods! Brunei tomorrow so maybe a more plush hotel might be in order!
Response: As you always say Jack - You can't fatten a thorough bred!! Yeah the tan is beginning to fade a little so another stint on the beach may be a good idea!
Getting more and more impressed by the messages! Good work!
Response: Still recovering. Saturday was the worst night of my life. Might be a long process, especially getting rid of the association of food and illness! Managed some food tonight so hope it stays down!
Haha - like the association but was really quite ill - nothing like flu hun! Should have known that it was only nurses making a general diagnosis and not qualified doctors! haha!
Response: Hello mate - the next post will hopefully explain why. Apologies, however I thought the new job might bring you more responsibility and therefore a greater workload to waste away your daily hours!
You could always respond to my emails if you get that bored la!!
Response: I seem to recall you have a dodgy array of hats too - just like him!!
Response: Ah ha the Silver fox is back! I look forward to hearing one of his legendary rants at Ferguson again! A little jig on the sidelines in a pair of his short shorts would certainly liven up the Premiership as well! It will be a short lived success I guess - always the same with the Geordies!
A lot of miles were covered I will have you know and in high humidity on uneven ground is was no stroll in the park!! haha!
Response: Yes salivating at the thought of one of the sandwiches at the moment. Hope the next entry will explain all! haha!
Response: I look a bit more like him now I have a shabby beard!
The monkeys were great fun! Especially the two baby Macaques that were play fighting in the trees trying to push each other out for a 30 foot drop! haha!
Response: Yes thank you! It's this seasons summer look - you wait!! Just out of shot ARE the brown leather sandals! I did actually trek in those you are right!! haha!!
Response: Glad it's keeping you interested on those cold dull mornings! You can also use it as an excuse when Mum asks if youve done the house work or not - you can reply "Well Ryan wrote a long long entry so I spent my morning reading that!!" haha!
Shame about the meal - thought all the pubs round there would be good meals! Saw the higlights of the games at the weekend and they looked shocking! Man U have an awesome squad tho to be fair!
Response: Good work Tel! Thanks for that! Think it is just like the UK etc with Scotland, Wales etc having their own independence from the UK itself.
Yeah you could try and blag some time off of work with SAD Syndrome! I nearly did send some home actually but was a bit unsure whether "Tea Leaves" on the declaration form would have raised susspicion or not!
Response: Thanks Skip! Seems things are looking up after results over the Holiday period! No doubt inspired by your goal scoring!
Maybe you cvould sturturally design something similar to the great buildings here and give back home a sense of wonder!
Sadly no white socks although Sox World is a shop that appears frequently in this part of the world. Can't wait for you to comment on a pic with me and an orphaned Orangutan!!
Response: Sadly couldnt retrieve it - the internet pages here are quicker than I first thought!
Look forward to the stories - although Im sure they may well be too graphic for me too! haha!
Would have been good to see some more wildlife - maybe in Borneo I think! Although I dont fancy getting dragged through the jungle by King Kong like some poor sod in Africa recently!
Response: Och Aye Jocko!
Jose is KING! Both albums are quality - although his cover of Teardrop leaves a lot to be desired (still better than Newton bloody Faulkner!) Yes I am a snob!
We created our very own form of carnage in KL - trying to force feed Muslims booze was never going to go down too well!
Yes it was Shisha - Aplle flavoured in fact! When in Rome! Although if I take that approach in Laos I might have to take it easy on the "Happy" Pizzas and milkshakes!
Response: Cool - all photos up to date now!
Yes still eating - had the closet thing to an english breakfast yesterday! Was so lovely! Could have eaten too!
