Cowboy Town Rendezvous

Ashviqha's Posting:

School holidays again!! I was a free bird again. No books, more cartoons. What a life ya! Spent last Sunday and Monday in Malacca at A Famosa Resort. We have been there many times but this trip is considered a special one with my little sister around. I still remember how we sneaked out the last time when Levinkha was a baby. We felt bad about it and decided on a short trip to Cowboy Town which only operates from 4pm. Levinkha and I enjoyed the trip. We loved the Animal Parade and of course not forgetting the swimming pool. Thanks PaPa...you mean the WORLD to us. Hope 'Kong Kong' Disneyland will be a reality soon... :)

Training in Progress

Almost did bungee jumping... but it started to rain. At least I manage to capture a photo of someone else doing bungee jump. Hey wait a minute...don't you think she looks like me?

Lil Updates..

Levinkha's Posting:

The title may seem to bore some of you, but for a little girl like me...it means a lot though! Mommy says I'm a fast learner and PaPa says I'm sharp.

I've learned numbers of course (that I've mentioned in my ealier post), the latest is Days & Months . I admit I need to improve my pronounciation as the word November & December are tongue twisters to me.

It's a long way to pick up all these word before I go to school in 2012. Mommy says I'll start kindy officially only when I'm 5 years old. The unofficial lesson will be taught by Cikgu Ashviqha next year...Infact she has started teaching me now and of course she's a strict teacher without a rotan...hehe! Mommy says 5 years old will be just nice to start schooling. But Akka started when she was 4 because she was naughty (ssssshhhh!!...but i think nobody can overtake me in the family) and she was lonely at home. Mommy says after my kindy I need to study for about 18years but If I'm good and willing to continue that will add on. Oooohh. Recently every nite, Mommy has been popping me with some question like...."Darling do you think Mommy should further study"......I nod vertically. And there goes the nag...."Levin do you know how hard to struggle with a daughter like you and studies?" .... "Not very easy lar....think carefully before you nod". Is she forcing me to nod horizontally? Is she lazy or Levinkha is just an excuse for her laziness. Whatever it is for the time being I'll nod horizontally to keep her happy :)

Recently i took a photo with Speaker Flower (Hibiscus) after a tired evening in the playground..:)

Incredible India (Part 1)

Ashviqha's Posting:

Yes! As you'll know we were in India for 2 weeks in the month of Dec. I know this posting has been pending for sooo long...I know some of you from Chennai awaiting for this posting..(u know who you are...:))... Hello Anne :)))

Hey... I saw elephant, cow, goat, chicken, pig and buffalo in just 2 weeks. Don't you think that's amazing? I've been in Malaysia for so long and it takes years to see all these animals but in India it takes less than two weeks :)

We had a tight schedule but I enjoyed every moment of it.. visiting Cold Kodaikanal, Spiritual Madhurai, Famous Kaniyakumari and Beautiful Kerala..... and 1 week of fun with family in Serene Muthur ;-)

Periappa's place...

Naan Auto Kaari...Auto kaari..

Magnificent view

My first scooter ride ...


Indian version of 'Pasar Malam'..but not at nite though, morning till evening.

Fully wrapped up in Kodaikanal, had no choice with the extreme weather there...

Baasha! Baasha!

PaPa -Daughter bonding...or was it too cold??

Next Neil Amstrong in the making...LOL:)

In Guna Cave, Kodaikanal

Beautiful view towards Guna Cave
Ppl would have thought we were crazy...YES we were crazy to go for a boat ride in extreme weather in Kodaikanal (with 10 degree C). Good example on 'how to waste money' ......hehe

Horse riding in Kodaikanal. Worth a ride eventhough quite costly.

In Kodaikanal Hotel, with the biggest Paper Thosai in my entire life. I was just posing for a click but the thosai itself went posing in PaPa's tummy...Burrrrrpppp!

This is in Kanyakumari..this Building; The Vivekananda Rock Memorial is built on the legendary Vivekanad Rock that juts out of the convergence of the Indian Ocean, the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. About 400 mts offshore the two rocky islands became the seat of enlightenment for Swami Vivekanand, an Indian philosopher and social reformer. It is believed that in the year 1892, Swami Vivekanand swam across the sea and meditated on this isolated rock island, imparting the spiritual charisma to him. Too high level for me though...

The Thiruvalluvar Statue is a 133 feet (40.5 m) tall stone sculpture of the Tamil poet and saint Tiruvalluvar, author of the Thirukkural.
