Wow someone in Malaysia has just read my blog !!! my stats don’t lie, thank you whoever you are – I realise it is a few minutes of your life that you can’t get back but not too worry you are in Malaysia – I’ve been there in a former life –
It was during a visit to Singapore when I Was married to a Sailor (well it has to be done!!!)
Any way, we nipped across the border to visit the “beautiful waterfalls at Kongatiggi” or somewhere- I’m not kidding it was like stepping back in time
We got a bus to the nearest “town” and walked through said town where the inhabitants had obviously not seen a shorts clad sporty girl in a while – eyes where upon me, drying fishes around me and open shops making coffins in front of me…………
The air was hot and the dust raised as my flip flopped feet shuffled quickly along, smiling as I went in the hopes that they would have mercy on me 😂
Eventually we reached the “Beautiful” Falls …. Ahem, oh, Trip Adivisor would have a field day – a Trickle of water dripped into a large pool filled with local kids and cans, bottles, garbage of all kinds !!!!!
So I really hope my Malaysian reader is in Penang or somewhere gorgeous – I think I need to re-visit, now I am 30 years older and not quite the sporty specimen of my youth- actually no – they may get upset and start building me an xxl coffin …. The final insult….
It’s a great reminder doing this Blog that I have had some great adventures. I was runner back then and won the NZ Navy, half marathon in Singapore – that was a time when we did Hash House Harrier runs, a paper trail was followed and we shouted “on,on” …. and as soon as we finished we had to drink beer down quick and put the glass on our heads !!!! Wow Happy Days indeed …
I had a T shirt with “Damm I’m good” on it ……. Where oh where did that confidence go ?
Well I want it back just as good as it was and I implore you, no matter what your age or size or colour or creed – get yours now.
Confidence is everything
I’m really happy that I have been to Malaysia and Austrailia and lots of places – blogging gives you a memory shuffle – I can remember things long forgotten and it’s lovely to re-visit and think of all the fun I had.
No then talking about travelling – I am meant to be going away on the good vessel Amy Belle next week but the thought of – rain, locks, wet dog, etc is not really inspiring me.
I was planning on wearing my wedding dress on a boat in Venice on my 25th wedding anniversary, but – Up the Cut in Wigan??? Just doesn’t have the same appeal !!!
Oh please !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Watch this space – I’m going to check out some 5 star hotels and relax -I mean do I really need oil up my finger nails every holiday?
One things for sure I’m going to check Trip Advisor before I trek through the undergrowth to visit apparently fabulous places.
Why not have a think about your adventures and write them in a note book for your grandchildren to totally laugh at –
We are a place in history right Now………the transition time between paper and cyber space …. Cling to that paper
Let the future know that we held a paper map in our hands to find the way – let them know we knocked on the neighbours door just to say hello-
Have most awesome day making memories
Much love to you
