Malaysia (again)

Kuala Lumpar
We woke up really late and went to breakfast. We caught the monorail to a shopping mall where I bought 3 SkullDuggery Pleasant books, and booked some meals for a flight. We walked to Berjaya Times Square where we found loads of cheap toys, pokemon cards, and and indoor theme park. Mum found a hairdressers. We walked for a very long time to get to the botanical gardens. We had an ice cream, then played it in the park. We were hoping to go on a boat on the lake but there weren't any. We had sweet and sour for dinner, and oreos and dragon fruit in our room. We caught the train to the bus station to book our bus ticket for tomorrow. We went to a food street for dinner but it was disappointing. We had crab stick dim sum and chicken satay. We got up early the next day and caught a luxurious bus to Malacca.

Malacca
Our hotel was lovely with free sweets at reception. We had very spicy chicken curry for dinner. We looked in tyoy shops with loads of fake lego. We went to the maritime museum. It was a model of a Portugese ship because the Portugese were in control of Malacca at that time. Then the Dutch took over, and then the British took over in the 1880s to the 1990s. We had delicious noodles for lunch. I bought loads of pokemon cards in a very cheap toy shop and got loads of EXs.

Johor Bahru (and Singapore)
We got up early and caught a luxurious bus with leather seats and amazing air con. When we arrived in Johor Bahru we caught a swift taxi to our hotel. Our room was enormous with a tv, a city view and a safety box. We walked to the shopping mall and had fish and chips for dinner. It rained solid all afternoon until it softened up a little and we made a run for it back to our hotel.
We caught a taxi to Legoland. We got into the park at 9:30 and went on the lego city driving test. Then we went on the boat ride where loads on chinese people were getting stuck. We then went on the new Ninjago ride which was disappointing because you couldn't aim your element properly with your hands. Then we went on a log flume that made you so wet that you could wring your clothes out. But it was so hot that we soon dried out. Then I got stung by a wasp on the way to the star wars exhibition. it was amazing because they had built all of the battles from the star wars films. Lego mini world had minitures of all of the famous sights in Asia including the Great Wall of China. i had lego brick chips and fried chicked for lunch. We went on loads of other rides, and saw a Ninjago out of the shadows show which was boring and rubbish. We watched the Lego Movie 4D whcih was quite annoying because it was in chinese.
We caught a bus to the middle of Johor Bahru and saw Chinese, Sikh and Indian temples, and had chicked satay and dunkin donuts for lunch.
We caught 2 buses to the immigration office, and queued for 40 minutes to get into Singapore. Then we caught another bus to the centre of Singapore. We had the best duck noodles ever for lunch. Then we caught the tube to the Gardens by the Bay. We walked to the play areawhere I got absolutely soaked in a massive water play area. We then did the whole immigration faff again except it took 2 and a half hours to get back to Johor Bahru because it was a Friday night. We decided to wouldn't go into Singapore for the day again.

Mersing/Tioman Island
We caught a slow and terrible bus to Mersing. Our hotel room was small and had a really creaky bathroom door. We had horrible rice and chicken for lunch and booked a ferry to Tioman.
We got up really early and walked to the ferry port. We were really unlucky because the first ferry was full, so we had to wait 2 hours to get on the second ferry. I welt really queasy. We then caught a mini-van to our hotel. Our room was large with 2 separate bedrooms, kitchen, lounge and bathroom, and 3 air-conditioning units. We had fish and chips for lunch. We then went in the gigantic pool which was really hot.
I felt really ill, so only went snorkelling for 15 minutes. When we went snorkelling, we could see colourful fish and beautiful coral. We walked back to the hotel because my tummy was aching. We had fish and chips and went in the pool later, but didn't do much all day because I felt really ill.
We went to a seaside view restaurant and had amazingly good thai style squid for lunch.
When we had breakfast 3 monkeys came along and stole coffee from the girls on the opposite table. When we walked down to the beach we held sticks because we had been warned about the monkeys. We swam a long way out with lifejackets and snorkels and saw more amazing fish, coral, sea cucumbers and rays. We had sweet and sour chicken for dinner. A monkey came right up to our window and was looking into our room to see if he could get our food. He wasn't even scared when we went right up to the window.
It was our last day on Tioman and the staff were weird because we borrowed the life jackets for the third time, but this time they said there was a charge for borrowing them. Then when we went to pay the bill, they tried to charge us for extra breakfasts which my dad refused to pay. We also found that every day the plates of breakfast were different so one had no toast, another had no sausage. And the plates would always be brought up with the cutlery lying in the beans. Dad said they needed to go to a hotel school, like the one we saw in Cuba.
We got up really early and caught the ferry which was really disorganised again. Even the man at the jetty didn't know the ferry was there even though it was the only boat there. We then stayed in Mersing again and had a tasty kfc dinner, and went to bed early because we were really tired.

Kuala Lumpar (again)
We caught a cold 6 hour bus to Kuala Lumpar. When we got to KL we were really weary and had sweet and sour chicken. We cheked into our hotel and went to sleep. We had breakfast and walked to a department store where we got stuck because it started raining, We walked for a few miles because we had been travelling for 2 days. We watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 in the cinema. It was action packed with a good story line. We then ran back in the rain and got soaked.

Lumut/Pangkor
We caught a comfortable bus to Lumut. It took much longer than we expected because there was a traffic jam and the driver stopped to deliver a package. We had Dominos pizza then caught the short ferry to Pangkor. Our hotel was really nice with a swimming pool shaped like a boat. The buffet breakfast was the best breakfast since Dury Inn. The beaches were disappointing because the water wasn't clear enough for snorkelling and there was still some rubbish on some of the beaches. We had amazing chicken chop with black pepper sauce, and tasty fish and chips. We fed the hornbills that fly around the trees, and watched monkeys stealing from the hotel bins.
We had to change hotel on our last day because the hotel was full. The new hotel wasn't as nice, and had karioke until midnight so we felt very tired when we caught the ferry back to Lamut, and stayed in a hotel in lovely Lumut.

Taiping (again)
We caught a local bus to Taiping and went back to the same hotel in Taiping. The chinese lady on reception was very nice and remembered me. We went back to the lake gardens but we didn't go on the peddle boats because it was too hot. We went back to the lego shop and bought some more mini-figures. We had tasty chicken satay at the night market.

Seremban
We caught the train to Kuala Lumpar and then Seremban. There wasn't really anything to do at Seremban but dad said we needed to kill some time before going to South Korea. Our hotel room was very comfortable, but it smelled smokey so we went through a load of faff while they moved us. We caught a taxi into the centre. We started to walk round the lake, but got bitten to pieces by mossies so got a taxi back to the hotel. Then we played House of the Dead 4 in the arcade and Team Fortress 2 in the internet cafe.
We had amazing buffet breakfast then caught the train back to Kuala Lumpar.
Next we fly to South Korea and Japan, and then I will be really pleased to get home because I am getting a bit fed up with travelling.
