Langkawi Island, Malaysia - Saturday, 27 August 2011

rain 30 °C

Last night hopped into bed at 10ish and read until 11 pm. Not tired but decided to bed down. Still awake at 1 pm so decided to get up and tiptoe into the lounge room, closed the connecting door and read for a while until I got tired. Phil came looking for me at 2 am so I got back into bed and he started fiddling around with suitcases, lights etc, so it was 3 am before we got to sleep. Woke up at 7.15 am, feeling okay; not tired at all. Text message from Jessica and Peter to say that Henri Ryder Johansen was born at 6.54 pm on Friday, 26 August - 9lbs 7ozs - 54 cm long.

After breakfast, we went back to the shopping mall and I bought some lovely baby clothes for Henri - $2 a pop. Baby clothes are very cheap in Malaysia and lovely. I also bought him some jeans and a shirt. They were a bit dearer but with 50% off in the sale, they were still reasonably cheap.

Back to the hotel for lunch and were going to the cable car and semi circular bridge when it started to rain (again) so we spent the afternoon in our rooms, resting and reading. Met for happy hour and snacks, then walked down to "Rat Alley" to check the duty free price of Bombay Sapphire for Mikie and Marl. It was $15 AUD so I bought a bottle - much cheaper than Sydney duty free. There were half a dozen buses at the shop, all over from Thailand, just going crazy buying everything in bulk and packing it up in boxes for the 2 hour ferry ride back to Thailand. Just incredible. We caught a taxi to "Charlies" restaurant by the water. Very nice. We all enjoyed our meals. Might go back there tomorrow for lunch.
