    Arief says thank you very much! He had a wonderful party with his cousins this evening and got 3 RC Cars and a Hotwheelz Track! I think he’ll be dreaming cars tonight! Heheh!

  4. yasmeen’s mum: Ya its a beautiful palace! I was fascinated by the so-called “oriental” statues which were made by people who had never been to the orient and so used their imagination to conjure up all sorts of costumes for their statues!

    Checkpoint Charlie was a bit of a disappointment cos the little museum was closed when we were there 🙁

    By funky you mean? 😛
