That time of the year again! Zaza has grown!

Zaza all grown up at 6-year-old.

She is now tall and lanky and can read French. Almost everynight I again read Dr Seuss The Lorax, but this time she will complete reading the book and I will instead fall asleep!

Khean Sway was a unique market experience in Cambodia!

If you have the time you must fly to Phnom Penh about 1hour 40minutes and you will be immersed in a new kind of experience. Nice people, great food and not expensive.
In Phnom Penh you can take a stroll along the river and soak in the cool air and culture, to see how people make do with what they have.  They waste not want not.
There is a unique Sunday market there that sells everything under the sun..food wise that is. I was there.
Enjoy the photographs below taken recently:-

It is still nice and pleasant and cold in winter!

Big big girl in a big wide world....Zaza!

Leaving the house with her Uwan Uwan for a walk.

Zaza is now a big girl and she attends Junior Kindergarten (JK), about ten minutes from her house.
We had the opportunity to send her to the school bus around the corner and it was strange, and happy a the same time, to see my little Zaza going to school.
We will be able to be with her family until first week of January and then it will be another year or so before we can come back to be with her again.

General elections...Singapore style!

If you hoping to see posters, buntings and symbol of political parties hanging from the highest trees in Singapore at the coming general elections at this island republic you are in for a disappointment.
General elections Singapore style is as banal and as sterile as you can get!
No fanfare or bikers zooming dangerously jeopardising lives.
I, and two other friends, were in Singapore last week to see how this republic was preparing for the coming elections. Being from across the cause way I was anticipating pictures of Lee Kuan Yew, Goh Chok Tong or Brigadier Lee Hsien Loong to be pasted all along the streets and roads in Singapore well I, we, didn't see it.
Even if there is a posters, very small ones, if you are driving and if you blink you will miss the small PAP posters, but placed at a strategic junctions. So subliminal and yet almost invisible, but the ruling party's symbols are there.
How I wish our general elections can be conducted in such a way. The recent Sarawak state elections saw many plastic posters, banners, and billboards that would be thrown away after the polls.
The thing that we have to learn from Singapore is to be more friendly to the environment and to pollute less and using less resources non-bio-degradable material, as our way of respecting Mother Earth!
