Just 4 months ago The French Nyonya were running bare foot as free as the crane above in the Maldives. Yes!! I can understand how you feel when I say we were in the Maldives and we were not holidaying but living there for.... awhile. Jealous?? I can understand..
I just love it whenever people asked about where we lived. Once the word Maldives left my lips..most people would give us the envy, disbelieve, oh-you-so-lucky kind of "look".
|Our front yard..|
I did count my blessing
Each and everyday.
Even though, I have to be very honest that I was moaning of no shopping malls, can't drive, can't go visit or hanging out with friends who live on another island as and when I wish.. can't just walk to school, can't just cross the road to buy say.. toothpaste. Can't find things that I want/need all in a shop but have to do a "treasure" hunt around Male, the capital island.
We spent time well admire the many colourful sunsets..
We swam with fish of rainbow colours..while cotton clouds floating by..
We saw dolphins on our way to school..
Once, I was so lucky to be greeted by three pilot whales on my way home from school island..
and/or a Pina Colada to call it day..
