With the Rainbow Band

Lely, Rohaya and Ruqxana will be here tomorrow.  Early Friday morning  they  will leave for a weekend break at Langkawi with AsH and spouse in tow.  Oi Bek will fly into Langkawi from Singapore on Friday as well.

Some weeks ago when my sister asked Lely whether Iain will be joining them, she replied,  "Bawa saja, lah."  That had my sister and Hidayah rolling with laughter.  We're quite touched that these youngsters wanted us along for their special celebration - all expenses paid!

Oi Bek and Lely  have arranged it to the smallest detail and here is where we will be from Friday to Monday. 

These two geriatrics, Darby and Joan, really look forward to this break which will help us to recuperate from a spell of poor health.  I hope these dear girls will remember to supply us with hot water bottles, walking sticks and perhaps a Lamborghini wheel chair!

These girls know too well how Uncle the Scotsman, much prefers the simpler, humbler AND cheaper holiday abode.  Anyway he has no choice for this is their special holiday.  If he had his way, this picture by him illustrates the sort of place he would choose.  You girls have been warned.

And here are snippets of what could lie ahead

And he hopes this will give you the sinking feeling and  stop you from taking up the offer.

AsH will be home by Monday fatter, healthier and chirpier, InsyaAllah.

And - I will be bootlegging about 20 bottles of Minyak Gamat, by special request of friends and relatives.

See you later and have a lovely week-end.

But that's loads enough.
