Water Front on Independence Day

Last Saturday night we went down to try some buttered prawns that a long time resident, Brother Wilkinson, recommended.  We did not know it was Malaysia's Independence Day from England.  It was a delightful evening.  We ate dinner with the buttered prawns, fried rice and my favorite vegetable that looks like some type of fern.  I'm told it only grows in Malaysia so ill miss it when I leave.  A family sat next to us with twin toddlers.  One was asleep in her grandmothers arms but we did get a cute picture of the other little girl.  We love the children here.

We wandered down to the River Front where the river taxis were decorated, long boats with their crews were practicing for the big races next weekend and the beautiful lights.  What an enjoyable evening.
