More monkeys, lunch and getting some keys cut…

No monkey sightings today but those paw prints and certainly weren’t on the window frame when I left were work this morning… Not too sure what I had for lunch today. It was good, but not as good as the Pataya I had for lunch yesterday. It was tasty, but the fried egg on top […]

First trip to the shops in Malaysia….

Just arrived back from my 1st trip to the shops! Always a bit of an adventure… When you move to a new country there are certain things you need to buy straightaway, for example food! So even though I’d only been in Malaysia less than 24 hours I had to hit the shops, and wow! […]
