Malaysia is 5 hours ahead of us which means while we were there, we were 14 hours ahead of our oldest son who is in Colorado.

We had to cancel our two-day side trip to Langkawi because of a slight health problem my husband encountered. With the change in plans, we did the best we could to enjoy our time.

Hope each and every one of you is having a fabulous day!
