Full Moon (or not!)

They cancelled the full moon party! 6 guys went swimming 2 days before the party at night and at least 2 of them drowned. I thought this happened quite regularly but apparently not so they decided to stop all music on the beach as apparently the rips are pretty bad at this time of year so everybody was milling around the town. It was disappointing but i still had a great night, James was on a bucket powered mission which lasted until about 6ish. Fortunately we had been to the beach the 2 nights before so we knew roughly what we were missing, Suze and I are planning some sort of scuba diving + full moon christmas holiday at some point in the future.

We've just hit malaysia after possibly the worst bus journey of the trip, we were supposed to be travelling from 6am til 7pm but we ended up arriving at 2am after waiting 2 hours in thailand and then getting stranded at the border for another 2. Then 2 buses magically appeared to take us to the right destinations but we had to pay 100 baht each, how convenient! It wasn't the biggest problem but we might add another day in Penang now. Malaysia is a fair bit cheaper than thailand which is nice, we're planning to enjoy the last few cheap days of our trip as it's all western prices from here on, yuck!

I am dissapointed Ash. Me and Kat have had our blog for a week or so now and you still haven't added it to you list of links. Are we not good enough for your page?

Anyway, bad luck with the Full Moon party and the Bus trip. I hope our crossing into Malaysia is a bit more smooth. We were planning on getting the boat down the coast to Langkawi. I am liking the sound of the cheapness of malaysia, as me and Kat are planning on spending more time there than Thailand.

Have fun.
