Great place to run away

I went back to Perhentian islands in August 2003. It was a great trip - worth the long trip on the bus !!

What is great about this place is that the sense of freedom and complete relaxation once you are there.

I hope to let you feel that through my pages.

    "Things can come through your window at night"? What are we talking about here? Insects, monitor lizards? Or do you mean strange men???
