… even tropical ulcers. I had a visit from my cousin ages ago, and we had a brilliant time together. It was magnificent to finally be able to show someone from home what I’m always nagging about… Since then, I have also been able to show my sister Anne Malene and her boyfriend Øyvin, and… Continue reading Patience, Prayer and Penicillin heal all wounds…
We’re open for business!
It’s been waaaay too long since my last update, but we’re now finally up and running. Most of my time in the weeks since I wrote last were spent getting things ready, but it has now all paid off. 🙂 The new deck is beautiful, compressor works, we’ve got the staff we need, and we’re… Continue reading We’re open for business!
Life on the island is running it’s course, people come and go, the beach is white and the jungle is green, the sea is dark blue and sky is a lighter blue, the sun rises and the sun sets, the moon and stars spin their course above all of us. The past few days I’ve… Continue reading Island Life
Precious precipitation pouring over Pulau Perhentian
I’ve been in the Perhentians almost two weeks, and I’m still hanging around waiting for equipment, boat, compressor and stuff. It’s been mostly lazy days, beach time, socializing and chilling, but we’ve also had some longed-for rain! The fresh water supply was dwindling, and for a few days we were almost without water for showers… Continue reading Precious precipitation pouring over Pulau Perhentian

I came on the first boat this morning, and I’ve settled in above the dive shop, in one of the three rooms upstairs. Three of the people who were here with Sunlight last year were… Continue reading Return to Paradise

I hailed a bemo and got there at 9:35, and was perplexed that there were no cars outside. When I came up to the door, it said that the congregation… Continue reading God påske, Happy Easter!
October 19 So. Two weeks ago I posted from KL, and later that day I headed to the airport. By 1am I was on a plane from KL to London Stansted, where I had to spend 27 hours, due to a slight brain hiccup in the booking process… I bought a ticket from Kuala Lumpur… Continue reading Supplies!
Seven hours to get cash from the ATM
I am feeling more and more as a part of the staff here at Sunlight, and that feeling was especially strong yesterday. I ran out of cash a while ago, and while I can write everything on my tab at Moonlight, where I’m staying, I don’t have a tab anywhere else yet. Eventually I had… Continue reading Seven hours to get cash from the ATM
Perhentian Islands in Malaysia
July 6 When I woke up yesterday morning, it felt as if I was in the middle of an earthquake… When the next flash and boom came a few seconds later, I realized it had been a clap of thunder, but it had been so loud it rattled the doors and windows in my room!… Continue reading Perhentian Islands in Malaysia
