New addition to the family

On the weekend, we purchased a motorcycle for quick cruising around Tanjung Bunga and the island in general. Tim picked it up today after they had given it an oil change and installed a helmet box at the back. For the guys who want to know, its a Honda Wave 100cc. For the girls who want to know, its dark teal blue. I plan on learning how to drive it as well although Tim's ride home, while fun and carefree, was a bit nervewracking considering how they drive around here! So I'll practice here on campus first before I take it out on the streets. Now, to be truly Malaysian, we would pack all four Archers on the bike and have a dog or a sack of rice in the front basket!!

Yep and there is probably room for Granny too! I love it!! Good for you Shauna...I have always been a bit afraid of those things ...years and years ago a girl friend of mine lost her foot in one...but I am probably braver now! Have fun!

Since I've been to that area of the world and have seen the motor bikes zipping in and out in the traffic, loaded with the entire family, plus the dog and chickens, I'm having a hard time picturing you guys on one! I'm adding this subject to my prayer list for you!!!
