This morning Ethan and James went out and about and left Dorie and me at home. While I was on the computer in our office, Dorie appeared in the window and said, "Come here Mom, I have something for you"!
|That's Dorie, in front of our house (We live on the left side). Today her umbrella was a parasol--shade is much coveted around here!|
|Friendship Park (or Taman Sahabat) is a recent gift to Malaysia from China. The Chinese Malaysians are a minority here, but it seems everywhere I go I hear the local Chinese dialect spoken. I love trying out my little bit of Mandarin here! Our temporary house is about three blocks away, and I love to jog there in the mornings.|
|Our picnic spot overlooked the reflexology path; many believe a walk over these stones is good for your health.|
|Anyone barefoot and ready to try it out? I like it, but can only take a few minutes of the 'massage.'|
|What a fun morning!|
Here are some random pictures taken sometime during the last two weeks:
|Ants are everywhere! From the fire ants that swarmed all over Dorie when she climbed their tree, to itsy-bitsy ants that will find any speck of food on the floor, these little creatures are a force to be reckoned with!|
|Dorie found a friend at a nearby food-court. Incidentally, this little girl's parents make the best Singapore Chicken and hot sauce we've had! Her dad even gave me the recipe for the sauce!|
|James and a snail behind our house. It wanted to get away, as you can see.|
And now, for your parting shot...
|Dorie and James hanging out in the wet kitchen. Yes, there was some risk involved.|
Oh, and Happy Father's day! Dad, I realized that with the time difference, I could wait to write you a Father's day email until Monday morning and still be on time, and that is probably what will happen because we are going to the beach tomorrow. :) Love you lots!
