Am back !

Hey ! Hope everyone's been having a swell time, cos' we have !! The pix that follow would attest i'm sure.

We did a driving holiday to Malaysia with 3 pit stops at Port Dickson, Genting Highlands and Melaka.

This was where we stayed ....The water villa (which were on stilts) was really quite nice, and we were literally above the water during high tide. Waking up to waves and watching the sunrise... ahh.... bliss....

(Avillion Resort, Port Dickson, Malaysia)
Low tide was so much fun too ! Once the waters receded, thousands and i do mean thousands of little crabs and hermit crabs would be scampering across the sea bed. The kids were totally thrilled ! Isn't this cool ??!

My favourite shots of the girls that day at the beach... They were so busy picking "shells", I had to double check every single one of them to make sure they didn't actually bring back hermit crabs to the villa !

See what i mean ?! Rachel didn't realise what she had found til i turned the 'shell' around and she saw those legs !

Then it was thrill rides at the amusement parks at Gentings and the night market in Malacca that went on forever ! For those with kids looking for a short holiday, Holiday Inn (Malacca) where we stayed, is a good bet. Barely a year old, it had these kids suites that actually gave parents some 'private' space and kept the kids in their own 'room' with a double-decker bed and an easel too !

And I came back to happy news ! I'm on the design team for Never Been Kissed Scrappers (NBKS) ! Jana's idea to give unpublished scrap work a showcase is such a wonderful one, and i'm elated to be able to create alongside these ladies. Now I just gotta figure how to insert the NBKS blinkie (k... i'm still a little 'duh...' when it comes to blogging technicalities :P )

More tomorrow.... night night !
