We FINALLY have CABLE! It is amazing how much having TV with some American shows helps me feel a little more at home here. Haha - I love my shows!

Another celebration - this is our 3rd week of work. After this week, we get off Monday-Thursday of next week (for Hari Raya). If the government also calls Friday an official holiday, we'll be off Friday too. If the government does NOT call Friday a holiday, then we have school on Friday and Saturday. Weird. Anyway, we are planning to go somewhere for a night or two. Maybe Melaka. It's supposed to be a nice short trip (a few hours drive) - smaller village with British colonial influences. So, if we do that - I'll be sure to post about it.

I've been feeling VERY pregnant lately. Sore back, Cankles, swollen feet. So, my friend Kate, her 9-year-old daughter Sarah, and I got pedicures. It was SO nice. The best part - it was only 44RM (which is around $15.00!) SO CHEAP. I even got a fancy design on my big toe. Very cool :) I'll totally be going back there.

Today we went to KLCC (big mall under the Twin Towers with outdoor eating and park). We had some lunch, and bought an oven that will fit a 9x13 pan. I can bake again! I'm very excited to have this. I miss my recipes :)Watching the water fountain at KLCC park - (while eating yummy treats)

As we were leaving to run some errands today, Caden yelled back to our Amah (maid/nanny) "I love you Julie!" I feel so good knowing he's happy with who we're leaving him with every day :)
Now - if our shipment with all of our stuff would just arrive - then I'd be adding a HUGE smiley face #6. I can give a Half Smiley though...We found out our stuff is in port here. So hopefully (fingers crossed), we should be getting it within the next week or so :)
In case anyone is interested...here are pictures of my two humanities classes:
