part 4 (of the forgotten tale)

20 Mar 2005

Got out of the dive, dried up, had an incident at the toilet. These Western tourists need to learn how to lock the doors. :/

Took pictures, enjoyed the last remnants of our time on the platform, savoring the scenery and the scent of it all.

Got on the ferry home. Dinner at Gurney drive again. Rained before Zoe could finish her tau foo fa, so we ran straight home (via a pitstop at Gurney Plaza). Got back to our rooms for a quick shower. Ask Fish about the incident here. Went down to the bar to redeem our punch vouchers. Had pool with a broken pool table (broken in a sense that it let us play lots for less :D). Zoe was the hustler of the day.

Then went back up to rooms for… wait.. somehow that didn’t seem right. Um, I may have gotten the chronological order wrong… but… who cares. 😛

So we went back up for drinks and card games. Played chor tee and a Thai game called Song Sip. Everyone basically gets dealt 5 cards, with the dealer starting with 6. An extra card is drawn and opened to serve as the ‘joker’. The aim of the game is to get 3 pairs with the 6 cards you have. Each pair will have to make an added total of 10 e.g. 8 + 2 or 3 + 6. Other special cards like Queens and Kings pair with the same respective types. The joker can be used to represent any value, so if the joker is a 6, then all sixes are jokers.

The game starts when the dealer wins or throws a card he doesn’t want. The next player can either pick up the card he threw or draw from the deck. And so it goes until someone wins.

Sorry, t, texas holdem poker didn’t quite catch on here. 😛

After a while, Henry gets sick, so we call it a day. 😀

The next and final day of our trip started off with a pretty late breakfast at 9.30. The alarm rang at 9, and Fish and I were tossing around in bed, asking ourselves whether to go down for breakfast. We decided to wait for H + Z to call, but they beat us to the buffet by heading down first. Seems that the girl set her alarm wayyy early. Poor Henry. 😉

We slipped off to the highway at 11 after packing all our stuff. Took the ferry (for free) back to the mainland and there was no trouble finding the right track to KL.

Stopped by the famous coffee house at Bidor so the peeps can get their chicken biscuits and lunch. Guavas were in season, so I bought a kilo.

Reached home in record time. Sleep. The end.

    Yes tiff, thanks for pointing that out. I knew that there was something wrong with the calculation. How can 3+6=10? Where did the extra one come from? Hehehehe
