We arrived at the hotel in Malacca at about 9pm after 12 hrs travelling from Mulu in Sarawak.
We were tired.
We were hungry.
I was trying to find Hliza's phone number on the computer why at the same time trying to figure out how to text on a new, and unfamiliar, phone that we had bought at Miri airport.
The door bell rang....and in came two hotel staff with a chocolate cake, singing happy birthday.
Margaret was ducking and weaving around the place with the camera.
While all this was going on the phone rings...
It was Hliza.
I have no idea what I said to her, I do hope it made sense, but we will see her and her family today.
We are looking forward to it enormously.
