Spice Island

MALAYSIA | Saturday, 6 January 2007 | Views [840] | Comments [2]

Hello kids.

Just a quick entry to tell you about the wonderful restaurant that Chels and I went to on Thursday night. It was called Spice Island, and it was stunning. It was in the more expensive wing of our below average hotel, and we were expecting to pay around 80 - 100RM for a main meal (A$1 is about 2.3RM). However, for a 3 course meal and 2 cocktails we each only paid about 110RM. Awesome.

We started the night with pina coladas (as you do when on holiday), and ordered our entrees and main. Whilst waiting for these, we received complimentary Malaysian style chips/biscuits with dipping sauce, served up in a gorgeous, fully functional, bicycle. 1/8th the size....

Our meals were fantastic, though a word to the wise. Just because something looks like capsicum (mmmm...), doesn't necessarily mean that it is (my mouth tastes like burning....).

After a fantastic meal, superb service, we decided to go dessert, and went for an assortment of icecream flavours, including orange. Interesting, but too icy to tell what it was like unfortunately.

We were feeling pretty damn good, as a meal like that in Australia would cost you at least A$100, and we did it for less than A$50. Sweet. I love you Malaysia.

Thankyou for all your love, it's great to hear from you all. It's a nice suggestion Ryan, but unless you can magically transfer photos from an SD card to a computer (that obviously doesn't have an SD port), the thought is lost. We will post photos if we do come across a computer like that, or alternatively, we will when we get home!

Love love.

Mel there is a multi card reader, it plugs into a USB port, you put the camera card into it and voila it downloads without using the camera. It is an essential for todays 2Gb cards as it doesn't use your camera batteries.
love Gladys and Kevin
