Besra the Storyteller!

Christmas and Bes goes to school!

Christmas came and went and i havent managed to put up many pics cos of the moving and unpacking... and the fact that i had terrible internet connection at home... so here's a few...

Here's me in my Christmassy dress.. although it doesnt look anything red or green.. haha.. but my signature black.. with a bit of white thrown in... got tons of christmas messages so was busy texting the whole night... some ppl whom i expected to message didnt but some whom i didnt expect did... so nice to hear from ppl i havent heard from in ages..lovely to know they still care.. so to all my ex-students, ex-colleagues and childhood friends, hope u guys had a wonderful christmas with a fabulous new year ahead..

Katie, Besra and Cora... three lovely girls with their Christmas ice-cream sundaes.. talk abt a sweet tooth!

Every christmas we go to langkah syabas for the seafood extravaganza... haha.. and the carolers... we're not that religious but it's just nice to celebrate the holiday.. plus besra loves the girls... oh n when the carolers came, they sang a few songs and then they asked for requests and Besra literally screamed: Jingle Bells!!! and she was pretty upset when the choir said they hadnt practiced it beforehand so couldnt sing it for her... i mean, who the hell cant sing jingle bells? pity the lil besra..haha.. no worries, i sang it with her enough times for her to keep her happy.
Bes goes to school now.. this is her bright orange uniform... ain't she sweet?
This is her in her Friday sports gear... ;-)
And here was a pic of her first day... when she was allowed to wear anything cos the uniforms werent ready yet... so pink outfit with rara skirt and white boots it was! the school is nothing fancy but it does include computer lessons and montesorri practical living skills so i guess it should be worth every cent... haha... but the teachers tell me that besra still sleeps in class sometimes, i guess at the end of the day, she's still just a baby, my adorable baby girl! We love you, Bes!

WISH FOR NEW YEAR: GIMME THIS HARLEY!!! Although i hve no blinkin idea how to ride even a bicycle! hehehehe..

Havent been so slack abt blogging for ages! hehe... basically December was a busy bee month... packing boxes and moving house and unpacking boxes.. seems to be so much to do every day... but it is a comforting feeling knowing that we're finally in our new place. house is simple but gorgeous.. and definitely befits its name: River Sanctuary Lodge. ;-) we hv plenty of space and guest rooms now so feel free to visit!

Besra went to school for the first time last week. The first day was fine, but the second, she ended up crying and puking and making her daddy sit with her for more than half an hr before i came over and he left and then i left her crying.. but when i picked her up she was fine...;-) happy to see me and not too traumatised... had a busy weekend and now she's got a runny nose so i think we'll let her skip a day of school or two. poor lil cherub..

Lanner is a big and strapping lad.. 9kgs plus and almost 9 months old. he's a lil Velociraptor according to martin cos he makes this really high pitch screeching noises as a means of communication.. and he swoops down on you with his walker (now that we hv tons of space for the kids to run) and besra freaks out and jumps on the couch cos when the walker hits your leg, damn its painful! ahahhaha..

Anyway, back at work now after more than 1 month and half off... good to be back and tons more responsibilities this year.. including vice president of the teachers' union. yikes! haha.. will also be tutoring in town mondays and fridays... so will be pretty busy from now on. havent taken many pics or downloaded the ones on martin's computer so... ah well, will find the time some other time.

Hugs and kisses to everyone, may this year be better than the last and may it be filled with passion, pleasures and perfection... xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
