On the Move to Penang

Ahoy out there,
And yes we are indeed On the Move at the moment.
The nasty weather of the last 5 days (with too strong NW winds and huge seas) has cleared..and now we are moving towards Penang.
Ah well, we'll get there.

The final days at LAngkawi were beside the weather super. Had a good time with the crew of Ninth Charm, Ouma and Zorana.
Cruising is all about making friends and...sniffsniff, saying good bye again. But hey, there is the Internet;-))
Nori and Wakame will miss Rebak marina with the great runs ashore and on other boats. They won't miss that visit we paid to the local VET for their once yearly Rabies vaccination.

Penang...well we think we'll stop there for a few days, maybe a week to do some medical work, new reading glasses, more shopping and for sure some GF: good food.
Keep your informed.

Getting Ready for the Run South

Alishan if at anchor at Telaga.
From here we will do "some" boat projects and stocking up. For the trip South.
And Nori and Wakame will get their rabies shots...
Of course Marijke is running around the local trees and fields with her camera,
and Jaap is exploring the odd mountain top.
All in all, we are enjoying Langkawi till the bitter end.
Salute for now.

Back Home after our Sushi cq. Visa Run

What a timing!
At Fukuoka the cherry blossom was at its peak.
Too bad we had to enjoy the pretty flowers during a cold weather span. It was only 9 degrees C when we got off the airplane.
Even the inside of Alishan's fridge is seldom soo cold!
BUT seeing all our friends and family made us feel warm indeed.
The paperwork=visa stamp thingies were done in a day, no problem. Even Jaap's drivers license got a 5 year renewal, no sweat.
Of course we ODed on japanese food...and for sure the meals were super.
Thank you Fukuoka for looking after us!
On the way back, we stopped for a few hours in HK, just to do some shopping (yesyes, Nori and Wakame's favorite cat food) and to see Janice and her family.

Alishan will be at Rebak till the end of the week, then go back to Telaga and...

Salute for now.
