A friend recommended me to this museum. It is located at the end of the row of shops and restaurants at Portuguese Village.
The area was quiet and the museum was closed when we arrived. I called the contact number displayed at the entrance and Jerry picked up the phone and opened the door for us. He gave us a tour at the collection contributed by the residents of the settlement. It was informative and I was told to return on the festivals day to experience real home cooked Portuguese food. There are rhe San Juan, Intrudu and San Pedro festivals

After a happy year with scout, kids said they need a scarf to go with their scout T-shirt.
We went to the shop to have a look at the price and have a close look at the material. With the info gathered, we gave it a good thought if should we make or buy one.
At the end, we asked around for old primary school pinafore and sewn it into a scarf.

It has been a great pleasure to meet Boon, Sachi and little Lilo and stayed with them. Lilo is very adorable and fun to be with. Boon shared generously on how to grow food and showed us his plants. He also cooks well and accomodate our vegetarian requests. His cafe located on the beach.
Accommodation is simple and very basic which is what we prefer. The beach is about 5 to 10 minutes walk from Lilo s home, across the road.

We love this home. It is our second family gathering here. Ris, the owner provided us with great hospitality which made us feel very much at home. The stay came with free delicious breakfast. We also observed the goat milking process early in the morning
Older dd loves to arrange shoes in orderly.
The scouts made a visit to Siddharthan Care Centre.
We whittled some sticks into fishing hook. The children tried to catch fishes with it and they couldn't get any :)

Being regular guests at Cafe 1511 guesthouse, we got to know Mia, (a staff) closer. She is helpful and often goes the extra mile for her guests.
During this stay, Hui spent some wonderful time helping her and experienced being a housekeeper !
