The next day we woke up early to grab a long distance bus to Malaysia when we arrived at the terminal they had all left for the day so we decided to grab a local bus to the border. On our trek to the other bus stand we meandered through the Arab Quarter and visited a Mosque. It was a beautiful structure we got to go inside and wander around. Then finally began our journey to Malaysia.

That evening we ended up in the fishing port of Mersing where we were serenaded by a woman with very few teeth (and even less marbles) as we looked for accommodation. Her tunes ranged from variations on a theme of Righteous Brothers, Ace of Base and Whitney. We woke up the next morning for a ferry to a village (loose word two beach shacks) Nipah on the island of Tioman. It was a peaceful place where we spent our days lounging in the sun and snorkeling with barracudas and our nights drinking beer and eating delightful Maylay food.
