Mr Sanguine is Out

Mr Sanguine's Home will be closed till the end of April as he and Mrs Sanguine are away on vacation. Cold and blustery winds in London last week and now going through a wet spell in Budapest. Thank god the Danube didn't blow its banks here like it did in Bulgaria and Romania.

Lots of holidays pics to share, stay tuned!

Roslin Orphanage - Part 2

This post is a continuation from Roslin Orphanage Part 1. Not in the mood to write a lot so enjoy the images.

The group of students performed several community service tasks, one of which was to pave the home of this family with cement. Most villagers residing in this area of Kupang live in very sparse wooden homes with dirt floors and no plumbing whatsoever.

Hand carrying 40kg bags of cement and dirt was no easy task, especially when there were many bags to be brought back and forth.

There's a first time for everything. Here everyone learnt how to mix cement, measure floor heights and finally lay a smooth layer on the ground. By the second home, everyone was an old hand at this.

A family of 8 live in this 2 room home.

Peanuts are commonly grown on privately owned land plots and the harvest is usually enough to meet the needs of the growers. Whatever little excess is often sold at the markets in exchange for other essentials like kerosene and cooking oil.

Boys will be boys.

The group attended several "cultural exchange" meetings where the locals had an opportunity to interact with the young Singaporeans. At this particular meeting in a Catholic Church, things turned into a Dating Game type show when more and more personal questions were thrown at the group. Admirers were ready with their phone cameras to click away at whoever they fancied.

Not content with only pictures, email addresses and other contacts were exchanged. Some became instant celebrities when their fans surrounded them like they were rock stars.

M was particularly popular, with both the guys and gals.

I've always enjoyed taking pictures of kids, especially when they're at play, without a care in the world. Here a bunch commandeers a cart for a joyride.

There were lots of opportunities for interaction with local children. The group taught them new games and engaged in song sessions.

Pak Budi and his wife Ibu Peggy kept us all well fed.

Never knew avacadoes were grown in this region. These were delicious!

The students made the local news after their "cultural exchange" meeting at the Catholic church!
