Well it’s been a while since my last post, truth is this move to Singapore has been a more difficult adjustment than I was expecting. But we are feeling a bit more settled now and our routines are returning to normal. We took ourselves off to a Malaysian island this last weekend though to recharge and remember what it’s like to have space around us. The break improved family morale considerably, despite the extreme lack of surfing.
Rimba Resort on Sibu Island is a fantastic rustic bolthole, a three hour drive and short boat ride from Singapore and you’re on the beach in front of your grass hut with an ice cold beer in hand. The cabins are basic but comfortable with private bathrooms (we booked the honeymoon suite for a hot water shower though!) and stunning ocean views. Being the start of the monsoon we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves. The weather was a little rainy but the cooler air was actually welcome, and by cooler I mean you still wouldn’t want to sleep under a sheet. We did some snorkeling but otherwise just drank beer with our feet in the sand and ate until we could pop. What a great weekend, I’m sure we’ll be back often.
