oh ya, don't forget the water

Went to the new house to help, but there was nothing for us to do. So we took a few pictures of the work in progress, and walked down to the beach. Brad went swimming with the kids while I walked into town to get us some water.

There was only one problem. The food stalls.

First the yummy bakery, then the dim sum place, then the soup place, then the curry fish balls, then another bakery...........

I finally couldn't do it.

First I got some steamed buns, and other yummy things. Then a loaf of coconut bread, then a mini chicken tart, and a few other type things. Just a smidgen of this and a smidgen of that. I was feeling quite proud of the offerings I was bringing to my family.

But, then I remembered, oh yah the water. So I quickly counted my change and luckily I had just enough left over for water.

That was close.


  1. Cris, you make our mouths water with all your descriptions of the tantalizing treats at the food stalls! Glad you didn't forget the water. When will the house be ready for you to move in?

  2. Wendy, yes, we are enjoy the local cuisine to be sure. We are not sure how long it will take for the new, two three months, somewhere in that time frame. Good lesson in going with the flow.
