Little Artists Travelling The Universe

Standard

So my kids lately have been drawing and with smiles on their faces they will complete a drawing then go right back into drawing another one. Not sure why this type of drawing but I am starting to believe with our travels it has sparked that kind of artistic side of them.

Without looking on anything they all seem to be drawing the same kind of pictures.

For the past year we have travel through some great countries and have made great friends.

So of the countries we visited are

South africa – cape Town and Joburg
Kenya -Nairobi and mombasa
Bangkok- Thailand
Phillippines – makati and Manila
Malaysia – Kuala Lumpur

I think their inspiration comes from this different places…Remember we are all ONE

Malaysia History rounds today

Standard

Today we decided to get out and explore the story behind malaysia…wish I could share all that I learned on here. But we will only do some photos and also if I can remember what I was told I will add that.

We started the journey back at the ministry of tourism of malaysia. They have a 5 min walk through mesuem.

At this place we get to see the rainforest of some parts of malaysia. Also got to find out there are 2 malaysia’s (they are both called malaysia but when you ask the locals they say the other malaysia.) And that malaysia has its own laws and immigration system. Not sure what caused the division.
At that mesuem we saw the old clothing and how they live. Which is pretty much like most humans….we are all ONE…

After we went to the Galeri of Kuala Lumpur and we took what they call Tram ( I hope I got the spelling and name correct)…

That tour around the city cost us $0.50 per person and it’s for 1 hour.

We drove to the monument where they have the soldier statue…pretty huge.

Great to have this moments with the soul you truly want to be with…

Grocery Box to Superman (boy)

Standard

Kids are really such great inventors ..today  after returning from the grocery store with an empty box that my items was put in…my 6yr old  boy Mj begged me if he could keep the box,  that he wants to build a house with it.

I was hesitant for a while thinking to myself he is just going to cut it up and make a big mess which I will end up cleaning.
But he quickly used his charm on me…and I gave in.

30min later….

While cooking in the kitchen he ran in there and asked me to see what he actually did with the box that he changed his mind and created a super hero.

It was so worth it, letting him create with that empty box.

image

So that’s his sister aasha who helped him put it all together…mj is in the box about to pop out and show me what he can do…

image

And he is out….about to take the trash out and save the day…

image

You can see the cape on the back of the box….lol!!!

He really had a great time doing that.

Earlier on I had the chance to take a picture with batman character while walking to the grocery store. So it’s all about super hero day in my house.

image

image

I was with IMAHKUS going to the grocery store so she got to take  pose too….

Who said we can not have it all while travelling….superhero day went very well….

Our funny Life

Standard

So today while walking home…Marcus decides that he want to teach IMAHKUS our 10yr old how to help a blind man.

So he found a long stick and he put on his glasses and started walking literally like a blind person  and IMAHKUS must help him get home safely.

One thing we observe was that people actually gave way for him and as funny as it looked for me and the other kids. Marcus was serious about it and he says our kids are world travellers and they need to know how to help anyone in any situation.

So here is a picture to show the funny scene…

Training went well.

Funny scene but looks so real…

Makati street food

Standard

It’s always a great day to be eating on the streets. And in Asia street foods is definitely an exploration.

Today we had some great experience as we got to taste one phillippines foods called Adobo… ( which taste like chicken stew to me) and you eat it with rice. They usually make it with pork but they also have chicken so that’s what we tried.

Here are pictures of us enjoying the street food truck in makati….
