WE ARE finally BACK! *claps,claps*
Still trying to (slowly) accept, adapt and adjust to the surroundings. The ride down Malaysia was liked a warm up ride to reality. Things once familiar became foreign – food, local news, cars, mobile phones, people, L I F E … Getting a RING on the handphone seemed strange and exciting, eating chendol (a kind of indian dessert) from a roadside stall was shiok and refreshing, the heatwave and the sudden showers cleanse us to reality … We are finally coming to the end of our trip.
322 families and friends along the way from Finland to Malaysia, a sincere note of appreciation to you – YOU made it possible for us to come home, to the hands of our families and friends, safe and sound.
Last weekend, it was finally home sweet home. Many heartfelt thanks to the fans & friends who turned up in Perling and Pelangi. Not forgetting those who are following us online, your presence has been a continuing encouragement to us on the road.
