I feel the need to write something but as for the purpose or theme, I have no idea so let’s just start and see where it takes us…
Koh Samui with Petula was great and I miss her already though she didn’t stay as healthy as she wanted after she spotted the carrot cake haha. She is such a lovely girl and we really enjoyed getting to know each other; turns out we have a lot in common too! Unfortunately my cold prevented me from sleeping, eating and going on the beach but she always managed to make me feel better. We (well she) ate great food, we shared stories and generally just relaxed. Especially as my cold was nasty so I wasn’t up to much anyway. It got so bad that I barely ate or drank anything for two days and became so weak I could barely walk down the street but I think (and desperately hope) I’m getting a little better each day.
In some lovely news…my friend Flip over at Flip Nomad ‘interviewed’ me a couple of weeks back and I’m now on his front page! Go and check out the interview; it’s all about travel and it’s pretty cool even if I do say so myself. Flip has a great travel website of his own especially about the Philippines so it’s well worth a look.
I’m off to Singapore tomorrow until Sunday before I fly out to Bali for my last two weeks. The day I got off the dive boat, a lovely young girl called Swan e-mailed me and we’ve been talking almost daily since…she’s going to be my personal guide around the city and has already come up with an itinerary for us haha.
And on a much crappier note, Alex my dive guide turned out to be just another lying twat of a boy. He’s refused to be my ‘friend’ on Facebook and never replied to the message I sent. Not only that but it turns out that when we got together on the boat, he was ‘in a relationship’ though he’s single now. Being the ‘other woman’ is not what bothers me however. What pisses me off is that he went to all the trouble of almost begging me to keep in touch and wanting to see me again. I was quite happy to just have our fun on the boat and leave it at that but he seemed to want more so he made all that effort to lie for no reason. I’m just so fucking embarrassed that I fell for more lies by a guy when he never gave me any indication he was anything but honest! Do I have a tattoo across my forehead reading ‘if you’re a guy you can lie as much as you want because I won’t figure it out until it’s too late so go ahead, walk all over me’?!
And don’t tell me that Alex ‘isn’t worth getting upset over’ because he’s just the tip of the iceberg; it’s everything. It’s every shit thing I’ve been through over the last 18 months and the thought of going back to a mountain of painful memories, places and people which I don’t feel ready to face. I’m sorry; I don’t want to talk anymore.
Speak to you in a few days.
