Some holiday

Got back last night, and I'm so glad to be back home where there's broadband instead of the slowband where I was for a week. Maybe they make it that way so that people like me will stay away from our laptops. If it was that easy...

Anyway, I'm excited about cooking Thanksgiving today. My turkey is getting ready, the pumpkin pies are baked and I'm ready to attack/prepare/manage my 20 lb. turkey, gravy and stuffing next. All will be well when that turkey is done and cooked!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY TO THOSE WHO CAN'T BE WITH THEIR FAMILIES AND LOVED ONES TODAY...Here are some pictures from the vacation. The kids loved building sand castles on the sandy beach. Picture of the pool taken from our balcony.
This was the buffet breakfast area. All you can eat for US20, and kids under 6 eat free.
Just happened to catch a surfer crashed onto the waves (yellow surfboard on the left above the waves) while his little kid watched. His partner/wife? didn't want to look, it seemed.
After all the poolside/beachside activities, we headed off to the local supermarket for some freshly baked donuts and pastries.Next day it was back to pool. We brought some toy fishes for the kids that was battery-operated, and swim by themselves when lowered into the pool. The kids loved them.
Here's a young, water aerobic instructor with his groupies. I should be joining them after all those donuts? But I opted to chase little ones around the fountain area by the pool instead.

Nice holiday you had! So when are you coming to Penang for some nice hot humid weather? Bring the kids for some tong-sway?
