SEA GEM LOG
November 19, 1999
in Singapore, we planned
a trip to Malaka today in Malaysia, but have decided not to go due
to all that is going on here at the boat.
Yesterday we invested in our own portable phone. Now we will be able to return Irene's. It has been wonderful to have hers. She offered to let us carry it with us when we leave, but
Irene will soon have another anchorless waif visiting Singapore that she will have to take under her wing. She is loving and kind to all of her friends, and with Irene's personality there are many of those
throughout the world. She also adopts all of her American parent's friends and many are avid travelers. Irene stays busy being a tour guide and gourmet advisor for all fortunate travelers
who have the right connections.
Irene is an editor of the largest newspaper in Singapore and we were privileged to meet some
of her very interesting friends while we were in the city. Our gratitude to Irene will be impossible to repay, she is certainly a hostess with the mostess. Until later
