whenever i travel down to KL with roo, we are always welcomed with open arms and open kitchen (mommy N cooks and bakes yummy stuff) -- and they've become our home away from home. it's amazing how i can head off for shoots, and feel utterly comfortable that roo is having a blast with mommy N, daddy K, bookworm R, and little K.
a favorite anecdote of mine is one early morning, daddy K went downstairs even before the sun was up, only to find roo and little K sitting together in the living room couch, in utter darkness, and talking quietly like adults.
this is the same circle of friends we used to have regular pool playdates and crafty playdates with. and i love how game they are for my silly squishy shoots. :)
after much prodding, we managed to get them to give each other goodbye hugs, but it was obvious little K did not want to recognize this as goodbye. don't worry, little one. we will definitely see you elsewhere around the globe. roo is convinced she will see you in paris. :)
