Final Day in Borneo

Today is my last day in Borneo and as I’m writing this I’m looking over the street in front of the hotel and it’s raining quite heavily. Looks like I chose a good day to leave, although from what I was told, it rains here in the afternoon and clears up again for the evening. I will miss the heat but I won’t be missing the humidity and the constant sweating while outdoors!

Luckily my hotel doesn’t have a strict check out time because I slept in until almost 1pm. The boys got up this morning for their 8:30am taxi. I was going to go if I woke up in time but missed out by about 4 hours!

I hadn’t done any shopping since I’d been here so a trip to the air conditioned mall was in order. I bought a couple clay vases from the sweetest old lady I’ve ever met. She was so cute I wanted to buy more but I’m running low on RM. I’m not a big fan of haggling when buying something so it was appreciated when she told me she’d give me a discount and we went from there.

I’ll be sad to leave Borneo but it’s definitely not a “goodbye” but a “see you later”. There’s so much more to see and so little time!

Good luck! I've since done a 4 day/night liveaboard in the Similian Islands in Thailand and that didn't come close to the awesomeness that is Sipidan!

Thanks for the info. I'm going to Semporna on the Feb 2010 and booked in for the same combo dive trips as yours. Fingers crossed, hope things work out.
