The last couple of days have been exciting, relaxing andfun but as write this on an old slow computer at 8:26am i feel a bit sad!although thank god the flight was delayed 3 hours!Langkawi is a magical place that i will always remember for more reasons then 1, my first time paragliding,the kind people, and one other reason but i don't wanna sound shalow, (oh well!) a really fab tan!but be4 i start crying i will update you of the last few days!So it was in the afternoon at the beach whene dad came down and told us to go 2 the car.the car? Finally we realised that he had rented a car! We were excited 2 see what it was but were suprised and worried whene we came out to see a tiny, tiny., tiny weenny little silver car!Cian and dad got in the front,(LUCKY) while me and Niamh had a hard time squishing in 2gether at the back!once we were esembled Cian took on the role as navigator and I was actually impressed as we got 2 the wate fall!@ the water fall there were MONKEYS!lots of them!And i hate monkeys now!These monkeyeys look cute but there viscious, scary and mean!So we were walking to the waterfall surronded by little beady eyes waching our every move!once arrived we found this waterfall compleate with a natural water slide!!!It was amaizing fun and very cool!soon after we left with cocnuts in our hands sipping out coconut milk with a straw!Soon we arerived at the cable cars.They were fab and very,very high, at one point we were going straight up a mountain while Cian recalled a sene in "Jarrasic Park" were they were doing the same thing except a dinosaur came and ate them or something!whene we got to the top it was amaizing!I was actually in a cloud!so that was one day hope you enjoyed my little recall of the day.
Lots Of Love,
MaeveXOXOXO

2day we had a beach day!I started the day with a swim in the beach next door!It was refreshing and relaxing (apart from the sea lice wich kept nipping me!)and excactly what i needed complete with a beach chair, the sun on my back  and my new book "Confessions of a shopaholic"So i was pretty content!but after lunch we headed down to the other beach, were dad made my dreams come true he told me Niamh and Cian that we can go paragliding so nattrully i was buzz ing with excitement!It was the best fun!My faverouite part was whene i was being lifted up from the beach and i was 70 meters in the air but my least favourite part was whene you were coming down and the men were running around trying to catch you so you wouldnt crash down on the sand and brake both legs! It was  amaizing!!!!!!I will try to put up some pics dad took of me!So until next time,
Love you lots
MaeveXOXOXO

As we drove through  a strange and unfamiliar city like nothing i had seen before i was intriged!Although Penang is no were near as good as Kuching in all aspects(as i found out last night when i tried penang laksa(yuk!))it dose have a certain charm to it as i found out the next morning whene we went exploring;) As we walked through the streets and came apon a chinese temple with 10 giant incense sticks burnbing out side it with people bustling around!As we walked by a cage crammed with birds(really quite sad it was vvery crule i think there were more than 200 birds cramed in a small cage) a  man aproached us and told us to bye a bird and set it free daddy said naaa and we entered the church! After the full cultural expiriance of buying a bird and setting it free we started to move on when the man that had approached us earlier noticed i had 1 ringit in my hand he started shoveing his hand in my face telling me to give him to give him the money which in a moment of weakness I did after caving into pressure it was horrible and even though it was just one ringit which is less than 20 cents it was the fact i was taken advantage of! But it was a good lesson to learn;)after that we wondered a bit more and then after finding out there was a Raffles in Penang me and Niamh went to High tea! It was fabulose!We were treated like royalty! We each got one of each type of perfect tiny desserts, and two types of gorgeous scones(commpleate with jam and cream of course!)and tiny finger sandwiches!It was lovely!2morro morning we are tacking a boat to the island of Langkawi(lan-cow-e)Will update blog whene I get there!
Lots of love
MaeveXOXO

Today i went kayaking! Last night dad made sure we went to bed early so we wouldn't be tiered for the action filled days but i didn't get a wink of sleep last  night due to 2 different reasons my mummy had just left us because she had to fly back to Sydney to complete the  school year and i was sad, and that there is a some type of Chinese festival a block away were they play music really loud till 12 o'clock and you should here some of the singing! They have terrible music blasting so everyone in Kuching can here them!So today I was very tiered but still woke up at seven(which killed me) had a piece of toast and waited till the people picked us up, 30 minutes after the mini bus arrived and took us for an hour drive to the start of our kayaking trip! I was in a two man canoe with dad and Niamh and Cian shared a canoe and our guide had his own! We started with some easy stuff and there were a few little rapids along the way it was fun but i have to say i did about 2 strokes every hour and dad did about 2000 so I wasn't a very good kayaking partner (mind you dad wouldn't stop reminding me but i couldn't disagree!) After about an hour we stopped at this little village were they grew all there fruit and i saw lots of pineapple bushes and even tried some local pineapple which was the best i had ever tasted!After  exploring the village we continued our journey down stream, Soon after it started raining so we headed to our lunch destination(which BTW  was this cute little housy thing full of these gorgeous kittens!)After lunch and a few to many wild guava fruits we got back into the canoes and kept going soon after we stopped for a swim and a little play which was fun we made boats and tried to sail them down the river( I wasn't very successful!)And that was pretty much it, it was really fun!Tonight is my last night here, i fly out tomorrow which is a bit sad but i am excited aswell!
so please leav comments,
                                       i love you all lots,
Maeve XOXOXO

as i drove through Singapore in a taxi that smelt like fried rice it came apparent to me that this was the start of my big Asian adventure! Singapore  is clean and modern but also very different!My hotel is smack bam in the middle of little India, it was quite funny last night i was asleep and then was woken by  a man chanting and telling all the people to go to the temple at three o'clock in the morning! it is my first morning here and i have already had a bit of culture shock!Ithis mornining we went to a really cool mountain trail and all around it are these gorgeouse monkeys AND there are babies too i think i have thousands of pictures of these adorable monkeys so ill try to put them up tommorow! This afternoon i am going to a place called raffles which is a big famous hotel for high tea! so tomorrow i will have lots of stuff to tell you and lots of pictures!
love
