Baggy trousers and Karaoke! : Thursday 13th October.

OK, OK….I know that the 13th of October was ages ago but the internet in the jungle can be a bit slow so now I’m catching up with blog posts!

On the 13th October we all got a taxi into Sandakan as we wanted to check out the markets and buy some baggy trousers!….nothing says ‘I’m travelling in Malaysia’ better than a pair of nice brightly coloured baggy trousers!
We got into Sandakan early and made our way to the markets, after stopping at McDonalds first. The market was huge with lots of clothes, food and cosmetics being sold.

The weather was glorious that day, so hot and it was lovely to walk around and see some new sights, it felt like we were all on holiday as it’s so different to where we have been staying.

happy with our new purchases!

Also on Thursday we went out for the night, we headed into Mile 4 for some Karaoke! It was our first proper night out together and we were all really excited and a little apprehensive as none of us had really done karaoke before!…When we first got there we were a little overwhelmed as everyone that was already there was really going for it, karaoke is a big thing in Malaysia and they love a ballad!….We decided we needed to have a drink…we went up to the bar to order and soon realised that the drinking system was quite unusual, if you wanted spirits, you had to buy the whole bottle, so we bought a litre of vodka to start the night off!

We had such a FUN night, everyone had a good laugh and really enjoyed themselves. We all sung a few songs, all the usual classics including a lovely rendition of Angels by Robbie Williams which you can watch below (apologies in advance) It was really nice to let our hair down and all enjoy a fun night together doing something different!
