Happy Anniversary
It's been a great year following you in your journey. I have a forebodding feeling that you think it is all coming to an end soon. Having given up your return tickets to SA just a few weeks ago, I thought you were commiting yourselves to a few more months at least. I will pray that you find God's will, but hope that includes a life in New Zealand.

Tarakan
My husband and I are headed to Tarakan this summer-he is a pilot with MAF. I visited him there last year when we were engaged and I can imagine what a difficult place it would be without knowing the Indonesian language! It is a place of hidden treasures though-if you ever get back to that part of the world head to Derawan-it has amazing snorkeling and scuba diving and is just an all-around beautiful place. I laughed when I read about the attention you got from the locals-it is overwhelming! My blonde hair and blue eyes don't help me blend in either! Hope the rest of your trip went well!

Transfer TN - CH
We used minibus transport from KL to TN. Took minibus from TN to CH (RM90 p/p). From CH back to KL used public bus (RM22.50 p/p) but that bus was hectic. All these transfers left early in the morning and stopped for a lunch break so we guess they were longish. Good luck and enjoy the trip!

Transfer TN - CH
Hi, please could u help us with the information about the transport via Taman Negara - Cameron Highlands? 7 hours in the minibus it means basically one whole day lost? Could u remember when the first bus leaves via CH? Thanks a lot for your help. Jana

Happy New Year
We wish you a happy new year...may it be even better than the last! Concerning cleaning public toilets, my son had the job of cleaning the toilets at the concession at the top of Pikes Peak (14,119 ft), here in Colorado. He said that the women's toilets were much worse than the men's...so you both share the same insight. It was so bad he quit after three weeks. I was proud that he lasted that long! I am praying for you as you make your decisions about returning to SA or staying. You haven't written about having applied for a job in your professions and whether you are waiting for an answer.

kersfees
Hello Talita en Ferdi, Ek en jou pa het die afgelope 10 dae se nuus hier by Jaco en Sarah gelees. Ons Lapland vakansie was fantasties en het heeltyd gehoop julle kon dit met ons deel. Ons is baie besig saam met Oliver en Bianca ... hulle het baie energie. Bianca is baie erg oor haar Oupa. Ons sal foto's stuur sodra ons 9 Jan. tuis is. Ons wag intussen dat kleinkind no. 3 opdaag. Dis ook koud en was gesneeu in London. Voorspoed met die skip. Baaie liefde, Ma en Pa xxoo

hi
Thank you for sharing this. I had such a wonderful time myself traveling and performing in India and this bought back so many memories.

Dads and lads
The boat building for dads and sons ais a great idea and can be applied to many others projects I assume. I went to a dads and lads camp with our local church and all the dads and lads had a great time, especially with the potato gun - apiece of PVC plumbing soem aerosol and ignition to fire the potato. a little bit dangerous when overdoing the aerosol as the pvc pipe work can explode. other wise chatting around a camp fire is always fun as well and boys love to burn many sticks. - and some other rubbish theyre not suppose to. This year we plan surfing lessons for the whole family - not sure if Ruhan at 2 and a half will manage.

Egg Plant
Hey Talits! Eggplant is easy to make..a few italian triks... You first cut thin slices off the actual egg plant you layer them out in one of those holed containers and you put salt (quite a bit of salt) you leave it for a couple of hours like that so that all the bitterness of the eggplant goes away- once you dry the slices of eggplant you grill them in a pan- once is nice and grilled you put them in anotehr container you wait for them to cool down and then you splash olive oil and balsamic vinegar as well as fresh mint- you can actually then use the egg plant for a week with this method and put it into sandwich or just eating them like that- i also find it very tasty if you put it on pizza! hope this helps! :)

Handewerk is lekker ne!
Hi julle tweetjies, ons volg julle blogs getrou en ek is baie impressed met julle handvaardigheid en die feit dat julle dit so saam-saam doen! Bly om te hoor dat julle kontak met Vader hou. Bly vir julle dat visa verleng is, maar jammer dat dit nog soo lank is voor ons julle weer sien! Sal julle mis die Kersfees, maar hoop dat dit vir julle 'n besondere tyd sal wees. Ons verwag Nadia, Jeff en Amir van Atlanta af op Kersdag. Hoe gaan dit met die werksoekery? Het julle al meer duidelikheid oor julle toekomsplanne? Soms help dit darem al as mens weet wat dit nie gaan wees nie. Dit skakel so klompie alternatiewe uit. Ma Corne beplan om n langer epos aan julle te skryf. Groete. Lief vir julle. Pa Franz.

Waiting Patiently
I thought it was time to provide you some input as sometimes you might feel alone when your subscribers just read your input, but don't comment. Well, we are here, and at least this one is praying that you find what you are looking for in New Zealand besides building log cabins and canoes, which are geat skills, but not something that provides a steady source of income. I also wanted to wish you a very merry Christmas. We will have all three of our kids home, plus some of their friends, so ours should be great! Our eldest daughter just graduated from college, which is also a good thing.
