Joie de viere...Part 1

One matter sorted, but many others waiting...now take 5 Yani!!

Some of the pictures taken while we were in Ayer Baloi during the school break last week. Ever since the house was restored, this has been our destination during short breaks. It is so peaceful here even though the house is built next to a main road from Batu Pahat to Johor Bharu...I call this place "joie de viere..the joy of life"...you will know what I mean when you see these pictures and their stories...
The courtyard, with a new touch, new turf and frangipanies and deck chairs coming, hopefully in time for Eid this year...
Drawings of old buildings in Melaka on the wall...
Fish is available, fresh from the "laut"...Pontian is a coastal town...at 8 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon, and this where I usually get my daily supply of seafood. They are very very fresh...
Air khatira...Johor is famous for this. My Yusof will ask for this every day for iftar. This was taken in Bazar Ramadan in Ayer Baloi town which is 3 minutes walk from the house.
The row of shops in Ayer Baloi town.
This is where I get my groceries and vegetables..Hajar gazing outside from my car..
The house from an angle, the window with the light colour curtain is my room..
Hajar and Muhammad...afternoon nap..
Khadijah doing her revision...and Yusof , too, a tiny wee bit of revision...
Basketful of dukus, think there are 3 or 4 duku trees behind the house, and it was the duku season...
