The past two months had been busy months as many of my relatives were in Singapore for Ning's concert. I also flew back to Penang to celebrate my beloved second brother's 70th birthday, and just shortly after returning to Singapore, I went with eldest sister to visit her daughter, Esther, in Kuala Lumpur. We also took the
opportunity to visit my beloved niece, Yann, at her lovely and creative home as well
as to visit some relatives in the capital of Malaysia.

Yann has started an interesting blog in which she shares with readers about her travels to Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. She also shares her creative handicrafts in her blog. The above are some of the pictures that have been posted in the blog.
