Bye Boston...

Marriott Long Wharf, Boston was once again our home for 5 days 4 nights before our departure to San Jose ( di sebut San Ho-say ) on Sunday Sept 23rd. The hotel is located at the edge of Boston's Historic Northend, just beside the harbour and having the New England Aquarium as its neighbour. The Northend is also known as "Little Italy" and this area has seen folds of changes from the days of the early immigrants. Quincy Market & Fanueil Hall are just across the road from Marriott, but the best priced souveniers we found are from the stalls/vendors located on Marriott side of the road.. Besides job handover at the office, all 'loose ends' must be cleared and settled before we make our move. Our stuff have been packed and taken by the movers to be delivered to the new destination. The house lease was amended and the house transfered to the new officer-in-charge, along with the keys to the car. Anis had her last violin lesson - I guess Peter Kryssa was sorry to see her go and also missing the weekly $50 per 45 mins fee that I normally handed to him in the Raya Packet, which he has taken a liking to. Atiqah had also said her goodbyes to friends and teachers at Newton South High School. A pewter miniature of Petronas Twin Towers & a Sarawak Table Lamp were our show of appreciation to the school. They seemed to like the gifts & we hope conversations will be driven towards Malaysia whenever anyone sees them. We also had the pleasure of being guests for dinner or breaking of fast at friends' homes during these last few days in Boston.. The initial plan for us treating them fall out at the last minute. Thank you to Sairah & James Glick, Kartini & Sabri Mohd Zain and last but not least Yasmin & Giles Saulnier for the lovely feasts. Not forgetting Zarina for her treat at a restaurant nearby....

Too bad we didn't have pictures with Amin Shah, Nusrat & the twins (Asma & Amir) who graciously brought back food stuff for us from their holiday in Malaysia.

Gracias Amigas....adios!
