I hope to make myself understood

My hopes for the New Year

This year I hope to make myself understood.

I hope to be more clear with what I say and what I intentionally communicate. I hope to better understand things I’m unintentionally communicating. I hope to communicate better with my wife, my children and my students.

For all of you, I hope life is good

All the best,Wayne

holidays

We’re on holiday.
That should be good,but it has a downside.
I’m crap with free-time.
We decided to head to Tanjung Kodok.
Anyone of you out there with the barest grasp of Indonesian knows that Kodok is frog. Here was this Villa surrounded by clay frogs.
Ah, but the story doesn’t begin there.
We were to meet the other parents and assorted kidlets at Linda’s house. We arrived dutifully at 8:00am. Stupid us.
After assorted fits and starts we got going at 9:30am.
The car was packed with gear,luggage and small things that made horrendous noise.
After a two-hour drive we arrived at the villa. It was very nice, very modern, and for the first 10 minutes it was clean and looked like it might be a relaxing couple of days.
Ha
First day we visited the zoo
Less a zoo than a strange park that animals live in.
I will post pictures
That afternoon we stopped at a restaurant and I ordered the Gule Kambing(goat Chowder) …one of my favourites. It wasn’t the bits of bone, it wasn’t the fat, it wasn’t even the rawhide presented as edible, it was the chili that made me push this away away after two valiant attempts to eat it. This dish is one of the more subtly-flavoured experiences you can have here. The tender meat, the play of various spices, the rich aroma. To place this crap before anyone is a insult to food, goats, diners and Indonesia.
That afternoon I took some photos around the rocky beach.
I was congratulating Emily and myself on how well behaved Wyatt was in comparison to the hellions that are his classmates.
The next day was Wyatt’s.
Now I want to preface this …Wyatt is a well-behaved, but active kid. He’s usually a good-traveler.
It started simply enough. We had breakfast at the hotel. Good.
Wyatt acted up a little. After a few calming words from dad he sat still, or as still as any four year old sits.I got the lecture on how loud my voice is. It is.
We headed from the park.
Wyatt and I both had swim suits under our clothes and were prepared to quick change as soon as water appeared. When Wyatt learned swimming was later he voiced his concerns. Man, and they thought I was loud.
This went on at every attraction. Bumper cars(once he was in, he was fine),helicoptor ride,small roller-oaster, atv bikes,go Karts after the rides ended, the noise began again.
Finally we got to the swimming.
We survived.
We made it back to Surabaya.
I took Wyatt to the bathroom.
Wyatt proceeded to pee, before his pants were off – wetting pants and shoes, meaning happy dad needed to use most of the handtowels to clean him up.
We ate. Heading home Wyatt started to screech. Every head in the restaurant turned.
Wow. Can’t wait for the next vacation.

This January … start the new year with a new direction
