Nowhere Is Like Home

Coming home (to my parents' place) is always a joy and Isabelle's presence just add in nothing but more fun & laughter.

My parents would abandon half of their hectic schedule, mostly church activities to spend more time with Isabelle. It must be fun to be grandparents and I am glad they enjoy it. I am even more grateful Isabelle is blessed with so much love from Ah Kong Ah Ma.

This trip home, as usual, were fun filled and enjoyably busy because we always so much to do, so many places to go and so many good food to enjoy yet too little time.

Looking very ambitious

Weather was good this evening and we decided to join Dad to a service in an outreach church in Port Weld, approximately 30 minutes drive from town. Our agenda was to go for fresh seafood dinner after the service. We even had the opportunity to visit the fishing village. It was another first for Isabelle. For the first time, she saw a sampan and fresh crabs! We were lucky to bump into a fisherman who just returned from the sea with the catch of the day.... crabs! Big plump crabs... irresistible. We simply could not resist the temptation and bought some home.

Our supper before their lives ended in the pot and then our tummies.
Did not manage to snap any photos of cooked crabs because we were too busy eating them.

Dinner was good too but we saved some space for our crabby supper. Mom cleaned them up and place them in steamer and I can't remember when was the last time I tasted such sweet juicy crabs with absolutely no seasonings at all. Yummy.

I have the whole of next week at home and I am going to enjoy each & every moment of it. Maybe, another trip down to Port Weld for another round of sweet delicious crabs. :)

Good night & sweet dreams!

Oh! Your little one is just beautiful! What a sweet post. Isn't it wonderful to have grandparents that are so supportive? My parents are the same way. Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog too. :-)

:( If only my parents are alive to see Ben... sigh, but I know they are watching over us from up there!

Glad to hear you enjoyed your trip back to your hometown! :D
