City Tour part 1

Good Morning all! Hope all is well in New Brunswick!

Congrats to KimMartha on her “official” status of Teacher! And to think my girl was graced with your presence – be sure and hug her – I’m sure she needs it (the girl not KM! – oh well hug KM too)

So I want to apologize for the delay – we have issues with the internet sometimes – and work appears to be interfering with my social life as well – ugh! I find it difficult on the weekends because we are working nights and therefore always feel sleep deprived on the weekends :<(
Not to mention when my dh wants to chat on AIM or MSN…

So back to my adventures. I took something like 147 pics over the weekend so this post will probably have lots of parts! (that doesn’t include the mall and the market – that was after those).

First and foremost – a McRice Chicken Burger – it actually wasn’t too bad—the rice is as “moist and sticky together as it appears)

So we went on a city tour and on the way we got to go through the very rich neighborhood – including seeing the gate and fence outside the Sultan of Brunei’s home – that he keeps for playing Polo--- the first stop was a WWII memorial. It was really amazing and really cool that I have been to Pearl Harbour and now here.
I’m going to post some pics – all of the memorial. Note the pictures on the walls (map and Mary) are all made from MOSAIC stones…how cool is that. The American Flag (pic taken and posted for Mel) was at half-staff for former president Gerald Ford’s death.

Well that’s all for now….I will post again tomorrow! (by the way -- we did see some "real" phillipino country so it's not all "americanized" or "canadianized" !
