Triple surprise!

This afternoon our friends (an expat mum and baby) from down the road walked through our gate, when Baby saw them he made a noise and face like he was happily surprised. He seemed like he recognised them! The other baby did similar.
I was so surprised, I have never seen/heard him do that before, and I didn't know he would recognise them.
Just then Soeun noticed some orange flowers near our gate. He was surprised to see the blooms as there was no soil in the pot He had chucked a whole heap of bulbs in there ages ago after digging them up to use the soil for herbs.

bus trip

We took a bus trip to the province a week before Khmer new year and the bus was this crowded! Wholesale boxes of cigarettes down the aisle plus huge bags of stuff, no room under the bus to put our stuff. And seems the tickets and seats didn't match up, i got baby and me settled in what we thought was our seat but then was told to move. Two girls thought it was their seat as their seat numbers were above it, but our seat numbers were too. When others got on they told me i was sitting in their seat....

Diarrhea, dizziness and lots of fruit! SOme of the things we brought back from out New Year visit to the family in the village. This week is actually new year, but we went early to avoid overpricing and overcrowding (Baby's first bus trip!) It always takes awhile to recover so this week is staycation. Nice to be at home with no one visiting, we think the baby is more healthy, not sure.
