The story continues - After our visit to India we stopped in at Phuket for 8 days and Kuala Lumpur for 4 days on our way home. We used our time in Phuket to relax after out hectic schedule in India. If you are looking for that special place to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings, then I recommend that you check out the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort and Spa. Our stay here was truly amazing. This was our fifth visit to Phuket since 2005 and this resort was stands out from the crowd.
As usual, Kuala Lumpur lived up to its reputation as the shopping capital of Asia. We usually stay at the Novotel City Centre as it almost dead smack bang in the middle of the golden triangle city shopping area. We have noted a serious decline in the cleanliness and quality of service since the hotel was taken over by Novotel a little while back however, we are hoping that Novotel will address some of these issues before our next stay in mid February.
During our stay in Malaysia we received notification from the hospital that the egg donor had produced 8 eggs s a result of her treatment. Out of the 8 eggs we only two fertilised ( 1 four cell embryo and 1 two cell embryo). Both embryos were implanted in our chosen surrogate, and so began the long two week wait until the scheduled pregnancy test. We were both excited and apprehensive at the same time and pinning our hopes on a positive outcome. After what seemed the longest two weeks of our lives we received and email from the hospital. Unfortunately the results of the the pregnancy blood test were negative.
