|Villa Cengkeh staff, Susan and the Kees|
The Khee family: Peter, Melia, Sam, Erin, Isla, are visiting from Penang and were instrumental in a very successful party for the Villa Cengkeh staff. Our staff are all Hindu, so the rites of Christmas festivities were a bit new, but the kids did a great job setting the tone and keeping things on the light side.

After the first course, various games were organised by the Kees and a good time was had by all (Dana took photos so did not have to suffer actually being a game participant).

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas here. Very green! There has been a lot of rain and the countryside is lush and our new gardens are prolific. The garden staff is BUSY. Wida and Putu are also busy inside Villa Cengkeh. The Khees from Penang Malaysia are coming on Monday for the Christmas break.
Susan's baking goodies for presents for the staff and the kids (and me). Most of the shopping has been completed after trips to Carrefour and Toko Rejeki. There's beer, wine and arrak. Decorating is planned for the coming week.
