Whatta feet!

Image hosted by

These aren't my feet - they belong to my colleague. I took advantage of her morning-care ritual, which meant bending over.. The host Penan family had burst into laughter because they thought I was taking a photo of her butt. Now, why would I do a crazy thing like that?? Hee..

I haven't written much here, have I? There are still the stories from the Baram, which probably end up being a story from the Baram. Coming soon, as they all say...

It's been a crazy week: I was sick and achey before I got better over the weekend. I've been having work-anxiety dreams that carried over to real-time. I spent too much money on the Popular booksale (I think I bought a total of nine books - hee. Some of the loot were for my sister and the two Penan girls). I got all these weird calls and smses from Mandarin-speaking folks. I yelled at one of them for calling so repeatedly but he didn't understand me. For some reason, we've been eating a lot of Indian food this week but I'm not complaining! My sister turned 31 last Friday. I asked her what she wanted, and she replied, "a miracle".

"Bath salts, maybe?"

And oh, I wrote an angry note to the driver of a car that was illegally parked and made my reversing extremely difficult:

"Dear Inconsiderate Idiot,

Is your ass too large to park in the proper parking space??"

Friends later commented, "let's hope that they understand English!"

Bah, at least I felt better writing that note.

I so love that note you left for that driver. Yalah, it also just occur to me that hopefully they can read English.

Anyway, good to know you feel better now *hug*

Hi, I have a question, when you guys were in the forest and lets say you need to take a leak or dodo, do you say some phrase to avoid offending the spirits ? Since you grew up in Swak, you may know the rules of the forest already, but did you advise your foreign counter parts to do so ? I am just curious.We never did.

I hope you are feeling better!

That is a beautiful picture of the girl holding the kitten.

It would be very hard to leave a pixie like that!

q: i love it!!

cooknengr: Sometimes, I do say my apologies whenever I go to the loo in the forest but sometimes I just can't be bothered. :-D To be honest, I'm more afraid of people than spirits. And yea, I don't bother advising foreigners to follow suit.

julien: thanks for your kind comments! I would be interested to see a photo of your ears. :-D

Quixotic cat: what a sweet thing to say! Thanks! :-)
