Selamat Hari Raya!

To all our Muslim friends, here’s wishing you a blessed Hari Raya!

Hari Raya or Eid-Ul Fitri is the celebration to mark the end of Ramadhan.  So to commemmorate our very first one, we threw a modest shindig for our house guests and some friends from the island.

For more photos of how we celebrated the occasion, go to our Facebook album.

A Special Thank You




We often get lovely messages from guests who have become friends but we thought this one was extra special and deserved a posting :-)

Rio was one of our young guests who recently stayed with us.  Unfortunately, she was a little under the weather while here, but thankfully got better in time to enjoy a few days of sunshine.

As a parting gift she drew us a beautiful self-portrait, complete with a bowl of porridge in one hand and a bottle of what we call “Magic Oil” which we use for all sorts of ailments.  Both, supplied by fatCUPID, were apparently instrumental in her getting better :-)

Her parents and her have promised to come back and visit us again!
