So, we're running a bed and breakfast:
we offer good food...

...a holiday environment...

and since last week, >100 cable TV channels from baby TV to 24h pornography. Our new TV connection gave us delightful viewing, gratis on trial for one month. What a wonderful world :!


This week brought good weather and visitors

Kaemon testing the water but it's unreliable with his layer of blubber!

This is the closest beach to us - Katwijk

Back Home

We're back home in our home where we have lived for 3 weeks, in a new town, there's lots to discover... The settling in has settled, Douwe's getting familiar with working again, I'm adjusting to being a housewife/working from home. But it's hard when kaemon is so distracting... he's sometimes a couch potato but he's recently learned how to build london bridge, so we're not too concerned about his lovelydouble chin(s).

Ticket to Ride

Kaemon has been trying out a few new modes of transportation:
1. Golf buggy @ KL airport

2. Hollands fiets

We do know that a. he likes the wind in his hair! b. holy cow! I can cycle and film simultaneously, a miracle!

My career in porn

Food porn that is. Glistening, indecent, decadent food. This is the Sungei Wang Banana Chocolate Cake= layers moist chocolate mud cake, fresh banana slices, hot chocolate sauce, crushed toasted hazelnuts eaten warmed up with vanilla ice cream, Hot cold sticky crunchy soft sweet fruity ooh! aah! After eating it a few times I had this itch to make it and see how much I could eat...the good thing with intensive cooking is that (most of the time) I lose my apetite. And then the fish that didn't get away, baked with lemon and fennel.

Where we live / We're HOME!

The flight was not too bad, we had a last fling with malaysian food at the KL airport foodcourt in transit, slept in a 5* hotel and survived the transcontinental haul. The holiday was long but it was too short....miss everyone there and *boohoo* sad to say goodbye. More Photos coming up soon, but first... our new house: we arrived home and immediately continued what we started 6 weeks ago- unpacking boxes. Weary, we forced ourselves to enjoy the nearby surroundings of our new town: WE LIVE 5 MINS FROM THE BEACH!!

What do you think?! So, for all those home viewers at home, come visit, there's room for all!

Ok, back to unpacking.
