An Emotional Museum Visit

Monday, December 15, 2014      10 comments

I visited the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Museum - and while the buildings were wonderful and the art interesting, there was a great deal of art from the period of the Vietnam War, or from artists who lived (or died) during that period of time. ... Read more

Wow, Saigon!

Saturday, December 13, 2014      10 comments

We're having fun exploring Saigon on foot - great city for walking, since much of what we want to see is within several miles or kilometers of our hotel. rollingluggagers.blogspo

Baby Cat, Elephants, and a Cat-Child

Friday, December 05, 2014      6 comments

It's been a busy week, and I've summarized most of it in our travel blog. But I'll share a story here that I couldn't put in the blog. DH liked the idea of painting batik panels as a gift for his brother and sister-in-law, so one rainy a... Read more

Kitty cuteness

Saturday, November 29, 2014      8 comments

I ended up having breakfast with the rescued kitty - they got him out of the pillar, and he's being well taken care of. I suspect he'll end up absolutely spoiled - but he's extra cute, so that's a given. rollingluggagers.blogspoRead more

Keeping busy with artwork

I designed a batik with the lion dancers, had my buddies at the batik shop draw the image with resist, then painted on the dyes. Great fun, only took me two afternoons to design and then paint. rollingluggagers.blogspo

On having a know-it-all sister

Wednesday, November 12, 2014      12 comments

I just need to vent. My sister is 16 months older than I am, and has a history of mental health issues. As in being childhood schizophrenic and who knows what else. I know that, I accept that, and I move on. But she drives me crazy, ... Read more

A Carnival and A Concert

Sunday, November 09, 2014      8 comments

There was a fun carnival sort of event outside our hotel - more like a food fair with some music and some sports stuff. Today, we went to an orchestral concert which was fabulous, all music by Rachmaninoff, held in the gorgeous Petronas concert... Read more

Part 3 of the fashion blog!

Wednesday, November 05, 2014      10 comments

This is my take on a wardrobe for hot weather - 6 tops, 3 bottoms, a dress, a sweater - two pair of sandals - a purse - and of course undies. Maybe a scarf. And jewelry. Good for a few months in a hot climate! travelfashiongirl.c... Read more

Part 2 of the fashion blog is up!

Tuesday, November 04, 2014      9 comments

We're starting with a cold weather wardrobe - 6 tops, 3 bottoms, a heavy sweater/jacket, and a raincoat, that's all you need to mix and match. Well, two pair of shoes, and toss in a purse. Probably a scarf, so you can stay warm. t... Read more
