¡Viva España! - in and around the Resort

The Resort - overlooking the Mediterranean...

Mijas - the nearest little town

Since it was our last evening in Spain, we tried a typical Spanish food - Fisherman's Paella (seafood paella or in Spanish : paella de marisco - wikipedia).

.. bought from this little eating place..

¡Viva España! - Granada

Visited the La Alhambra but could not get any tickets to see the garden nor the castle. Not our rezeki this time. But it was quite warm so some of us who went in said it would not be enjoyable for the kids so I guess it was a blessing in disguise I guess. It would be a very LONG 2 hours if I were to put up with whining children!

So we were just outside the area, and QnR had an ice cream each instead :D

Something borrowed...

Remember the neighbours?
Number 30 just gave us his granddaughter's bicycle for QnR to borrow.

Thank you ever so much.
We'll return it when we are leaving.

Meanwhile, let's try and learn how to ride without the little wheels this coming Easter break shall we QnR?

Since we arrived in this orangputehland, I've been driving a manual car, and beginning from this year, I hardly drive more than once or twice a week.

Hardly any traffic jams here, and when I do go out, it's always office hours. Unlikely to encounter any of the much dreaded long queues.

Will I still drive an automatic car when I go back?
Of course! IF I were to work in the big city, definitely!

Anyway, this entry is dedicated especially to my beloved Cik Yah, that has found a new home with my beloved in-laws. You will be 5 next month!
Thank you Abah and Mama.

Oh by the way, the manual car here is also red.

One of the many reasons...

.. I love being a mother!

It's Mother's Day at this part of the world today.
And I was presented with these from my mini MEs :-

Written by Q herself,
"To Mummy

Thank you for going shoping (wrong spelling here hehehehe...)
Love from

Kiss kiss kiss"

"Dear Mummy

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave dirty marks
On furniture and walls

But every day I'm growing
I'll be grown up some day
And all those little dirty marks
Will all have gone away

As I grow I'll change a lot
The years will fly right by
You'll wonder how I grew so quick
When and where and why?

I may be still very small
But this I'd like to say
I love you very very BIG
Happy Mother's Day!"

(Had tears in my eyes reading this...)

Personally for me, everyday is Mother's Day :D
Thank you anyway darlings, for the lovely cards and flowers.
Love you to bits QnR!
