Women's Day

Here, on this side of the world, women are celebrating International Women's Day. They call it "international" but I don't remember anyone celebrating it in the US or Mexico. But over here it's huge.

In celebration, we hosted a women's breakfast at a local restaurant. We had 54 women of all ages and stages in life, all from our church.

Well, That's Good To Know

In my quest to find out more about Malaysia, I've been looking at websites and reading as much as I can. We're going backpacker style, so I'm trying to find cheap yet reputable places to stay.

We've decided that we're NOT staying at the Blue Diamond.

Blue Diamond Hotel
, 422 Chulia Street, Phone:+60 4 261-1089. Room Rate: RM40. Dorm room, from RM8.80. Not recommended unless you have a penchant for rock-hard shaky bunks and are altruistic with respect to the feeding of fleas.

I just wanted to say a quick "Thank You" for your encouraging comments and emails regarding my last post. It's good to know that you guys are praying for me and thinking about me.

Hetee and I have settled on a destination and are excited about getting away! We've chosen Malaysia vs Thailand because we can both enter without visas ( Hetee would need one for Thailand). We're aiming for the end of April and praying for the finances at this moment. All together we need about 2,800.00 USD. Please keep us in your prayers!

Now I have just one problem: leaving this cute bunch for 10 days!
