Good Housekeeping

While at the Gray's home...during the football games on Sunday...I decided to read and picked up a magazine named "Good Housekeeping". I must say, this magazine is amazing! I can not believe I have not read this magazine before. The magazine is a blend of home project creativity, recipes, and health topics and suggestions. I am defiantly subscribing to the magazine when I return back to the states. If you go to the website and create a user name, you can get 12 issues for $7.97! This deal is better than the price you pay if you send in the slip that comes in the magazine ($12). I found a lot of cute ideas and can't wait to try some when I get home!

A Homecoming

Today Kirk, my brother-in-law, had his Senior Homecoming. It was quite funny to have the whole family (minus Phil, he just left for Spain) at Kirk's homecoming pictures, yeah that would make 8 of us! His date was his girlfriend Lizzie, what a cute and nice girl! We spent some time today with Kirk picking out his shirt and tie, yes I know--the day of-- but he was a stud I must say! It has been great spending time with the Gray family and my family over the past week. We still have a couple of days left until we head back home to Singapore. While in G.A we hung out with the family, ate with some great friends, ate some GREAT American food, and went canoeing down the Chattahoochee River! I will have to add some more pictures later because they are on my other camera!

"We're leaving on a jet plane..."

This weekend Clark and I get to go back to the states to visit our families! We will be flying to Atlanta and then we head off to Chicago. The trip over to the states will ONLY take about 23 hours. We are so excited to come back and can't believe we get to go back for a few weeks! On our way back we get to spend some time in Korea before we head back to Singapore.
A few things we will definately do that we have missed/will do/enjoy:
1) McDonald's: we have them here but you can't just get enough no matter where ever you are
2) Chic-Fil-A: sorry...thats it for that fast food
3) Panda Express: Seems odd? American chinese is sooo different!
4) Gino's East: No deep dish pizza here.
5) Portilo's: There's no Italian Beef on this little island!
5) Wal Mart/Target: We have to stock up on US stuff to fill our suitcases
6) Mexican Food: I don't care which one just make sure they have chips & salsa!
7) Car: It has been 6 months of taking public trans. I love waiting for trains! (not)
8) Family: I put this in here so my parents won't ask me why I didn't include them.
9) Time: Being in the same time zone instead of living 12 hours in the future
10) Weather: I'll take Miami weather over this humidity
...more to come.
Pictures to follow when we return from yet another travel!!

P.S - I love you

WOW! If you have not seen the movie P.S- I love you, then take your hubby or wife aside and watch it! This movie should be watched with your significant other most definantly. To be quite honest, this movie is a boo hoo fest! Grab a tissue because it is one of the best movies you will see...well I enjoyed it!

I will not tell you the in depth details of the movie since some of you have not seen it, however, this movie is about love and finding your way in life when everything seems to have gone wrong. The movie will end and you will have such great appreciation for those you love. Don't leave the house without a kiss goodbye or saying the words "I love you".

Go rent the movie for this weekend!

Dear Clark,

I just wanted to say that you are the best husband in the world and I love you to death. You make me want to be a better person, and I love waking up to your face every morning. I can't live without you and you are indeed my best friend.


P.S- I love you :)

Off to Malaysia...

Wow I am glad to be back! Clark and I had so much fun traveling to Malaysia this past weekend. To start off the trip, we left at 7 pm on Friday and took a bus to Malaysia for about 2 hours and then traveled on a boat for 4 hours until we reached the island of 5 in the morning.

To sum up the trip, we basically ate, scuba dived, ate, scuba dived, ate....then we did it all over again! The food was good and the fishies under water were pretty cool. We did see a baby shark before we hopped in the water! By the end of the trip Clark and I were officially scuba certified! We dived 5 times and went to 22 meters. Woo hoo!

We shared a little cabin that was on stilts and right on the ocean. You could even look through the floor and see the water! We had a BBQ night on Saturday which the local Malaysians cooked for us. The boat trip back was nice because we got to see all the random islands that we missed during the night time on our way there. We even saw fisherman huts in the middle of the ocean! Crazy!

Clark decided he wanted to taste the fruit called either hate it or love tell me if Clark liked it...notice the dry heaving over-board.

Well that was our trip! Short and sweet, but hey, when you live close to all these countries, the weekend is all you need! Our next trip will be in two weeks and guess where we are going .......HOME! We are so excited to take a break and go back to visit our families! Enjoy the pictures and if you want to see HERE!
