So this year’s annual family trip was to Malaysia. We explored Kuala Lampur and also made it up to Penang Island. Everyone had a great time, and we had a lot of new experiences.

Some of the highlights of the trip were:


Going to the top of the Twin Towers.


Going to the KL Bird Park which is largest free-flight walk-in aviary in the world.


Getting to paint our own Batik art.


We took the bus up to Penang Island and explored Penang National Park.


Had some fun at the upside down museum.


We played with and fed the monkeys.


Hiked up to Batu Caves where Melina had her ice cream stolen by a monkey.

It had been a while since Suzuna last participated in a market selling her homemade goods, so this years Vege and Fork market was a great opportunity. Everyone had fun, especially Melina and myself as we walked around and ate lots of good food, played in the hammock, and Melina made some friends and starting climbing the trees.

Fishing again

We had a guy from France in our building for a while and he had mentioned that he really likes fishing. So before he left I organized a fishing trip. It was great fun and we came home with a large cooler full of fish.

Melina has had a Praying Mantis egg sack in her bog box for a few months now, and finally today in the morning they all hatched and started crawling all over the bug box. So we took them outside and set them all free in the garden.
