Hi there, here we are moving into the 2nd week of March, time flies, being grateful of what I have and what I can do.
Haven’t been doing Project Life pages for a while now… and I found some really old photos of us in Sri Lanka when hubby was working there and when Calvin was just over a year old.
The initial plan was to move over there, stay there for good while hubby work there.. but it turns out that it was a job that he worked, and then change job. It was actually a nice place to stay even though Tamil Tiger was active at that time and it was before the 2004 Tsunami. Am glad that he’s no longer working there, though I miss the visits, passing-by the narrow streets where all the cars fully using their honk to get where they wanted and the attention that they needed. Also missing those shop-houses along the way where you can see all sorts of sarees in all sort of design and colors hanging in the shops. There were also quite a lot of German’s own resorts (I heard) which serve good BBQ buffet.
I got my first Saree made in Columbo that year, which was being measure, tailored and delivered that next day! That’s how fast they are. Now, I can’t fit in the little Saree blouse.
So, here are some of the photos that I manage to keep:
Our first day in Colombo:
With Hubby’s colleague and one of the colleague’s daughter.
I wasn’t needed to do any laundry while we were there, not even cooking, food were provided and they always had BBQ during weekend. The club-house is just less than 5 minutes away, food were being served there.
Do miss those time though…
Have a great week you all.
