where have I been?

Where have I been? This week is our children School Holidays. We called it the Mar holidays here. Just 1 week break from school. We head up to Malacca, just 2.5 hours drive up North to Malaysia. We love the place. Always quaint, always slower pace than Singapore... and loads of good food. Seriously we go there at least once a year. It is nearer than KL and less busy..... and definitely safer than Johor Bahru. (Hee..hee..) My hubby and I always want to sneak in time for the family... esp during the school holidays where it is not so rushed and hurried. We love being together with the kids... laughing silly in the car although less of 'are we there yet?" will be nice. We love holding hands and roaming along the streets and roads..... jumping at some cute stuff to buy. My kids love spending the whole day at the pool though not very wise with the blazing sun. Thank God for family. Thank God for little getaways like these! Here's a pic of our hotel pool. It faces the sea! Holiday Inn Malacca. Best view of the sea. And see what i found. A lovely vintage looking birdcage. Good price too. And 3 lovely birds. My children's fav now. They are playing with them as if they are real birds. And today I collect my 'loot' from my scrap/spree pal. Such scrapping goodies waiting for me.
The best are the Heidi Swapp Mists. Not in Singapore yet!
I should be posting some projects this week
I had been rushing for the MM layout calls deadline.
Managed to complete 7 LOs since last week.
thanks for dropping by, my friends!

Ooooh, how gorgeous that pool is! I don't blame you for going there once a year! How nice that you were able to get away as a family. We've got a week school holiday coming up at the end of March for Spring Break, and I cannot wait. It will be so nice!
Love your birdcage. I just bought a white birdcage myself, although I'm giving it away as a present. :(
Can't wait to see all your scrappy project with your new goodies.
