Went back to Melaka during the last week of my confinement as my brother came down with his 2 kids from Australia. I have not seen my brother since 2000 and it was good catching up with him and the kids. Saskia is now almost 9 and has grown to be a mature, pretty and responsible girl. Jackson is 4 and is a lot of fun, although I think Harvynna is a little jealous of him since he gets a lot of attention from my parents.

Harvynna got along well with her cousins and they enjoyed playing together, bringing the house down. After spending a week with them, she graduated from calling ‘diddy’ to ‘daddy’ by imitating them. She seems to like Saskia. She said, ‘I like Saskia only. I don’t like Jackie, Jackie naughty girl!’

Poor Rowena was oblivious to what was going on as the 3 older kids stole the show. While taking pictures of the grandchildren, Rowena was left out and the pictures had to be retaken as they forgot about her!!

We spent a day at Mahkota Parade shopping. Harvyyna wanted a shiny shoe as Saskia had a nice one. Bought loads of clothes for Harvynna and Rowena. Luckily Rowena slept through the trip. She slept a lot during the trip to Melaka.

We also went swimming at the Melaka Club Rotunda. Saskia swims very well and Harvynna loves the water. She kept saying,’I love to bath’!! The water was really cold and she was really shivering.

Guess we will have to make a trip to Melbourne next year to visit them. This time Rowena will be able to enjoy her cousins as well!
