Ayer Baloi Pictorial

The House
We are back from our short balik kampung break...Too short a time, too many things to do! The kids enjoyed it albeit a brief one. They were practically 24/7 outdoor!
We spring-cleaned, ate really fresh seafood, had a barbie..., eat, eat, eat and eat...In short we had fun! More pics on the way!

Salam Dad of 4+1,

Reached here via Pause To Reflect. The Air Baloi title of this post caught my eye.

I was born in Pontian but grew up in Singapore. I still have relatives in Pontian and in Air Baloi. I remember the times we balik kampung during the fruitng season. Seems like you'll be going back to Air Baloi again soon when the durians start to fall :-)

Will drop by again later to check out your other stories.

Dad of 4+1 said...
