I had a dinner out with some of the other mom's from Luke's class a week or so ago - such fun. Lovely gifts from Peter Hoe's and I saw that our usual restaurant sells live frogs - we did not have any, but he table of foreigners behind us did and we took the 'after' photo.
Maybe if his career in 1st grade does not work out, he can be a boy model...the sweater actually fits over his head. EZ, seamless yoke sweater. The yoke might be a little shallow, but it fits and he likes it.
First part of the town. These guys are not as well organized as the others - no tv's as far as we can tell, no roof top cell phone perches.
These guys are right below us. Most of the shipping containers have been fitted to have 4 little bunk rooms - as far as we can tell. Our Nepalese guards say the workers are all from Indonesia, but who knows.
And the lush before picture. I am so glad we are leaving to escape the construction noise.
Kid socks made of leftovers from my 2nd pair of socks ever.
Socks for me made from Lorna's Lace 3x2 ribbing - a gift from my knitting friend, Grace.
Knitting projects left to do - clockwise - the never ending afghan made from Chinese wool/cashmere blend. I am so sick of this project and wise it would go away at this point. Retro-prep sweater - it has been on the needles for a while - like 4 + years. Cream cabled socks - almost 3/4 done. Noro scarf. And middle son's EZ yoke sweater. Since the photo I have done 1 1/2 sleeves, so the end is somewhat in sight.
And finally the toilet shot. This is one view outside our window. They are building a 4 stall/hole? toilet right out back for the migrant workers living in the construction site. The black tubs to the right are the water cisterns - they use a similar system for collecting bathing water.
We recently had spring break holiday here in KL. The oldest and I set out for a quick trip to Hong Kong. He got to see his old friend from Beijing, I got to see my old friend from Beijing and we already knew where everything was - no surprises. The best kind of trip sometimes.

Our little Malay kitten has really turned into a cat. He likes helping with sewing projects and the colour pink, apparently.
