Lombok Five-O

Just last week, school was out for JIS for the week, and in order to completely relax and enjoy each other’s company (as well as beautiful Indonesia!), the Eastwood-Reeds took what looked on the surface like a regular holiday to Lombok. The results, however, may surprise you…

Take Me Home, New Zealand Roads…

For Winter break this year, the Eastwood family headed back to New Zealand for another South Island camping trip. The big difference this time… we had Mama!!! This was the first time that she had been to the South Island (ever), so it was really exciting for all of us. Rosie and I, being the responsible adults that we are, also were in charge of our own tent and gear, which made for loads of fun (mostly). Read on for the highlights of the trip…

After that, I went and hung out at the library (which closed at 12:00, boo!) and then met up with Mama and Papa. At around 2:30 pm we all went and got changed out of our smelly cycling gear into our “good clothes” for the big event: Rosie’s choir concert!!! Because she takes the half-year long Girls’ Vocals course, Rosie is obliged to take part in the choir concert. At least one group from each education level performs.

Selamat Ulang Tahun!

 Selamat ulang tahun means ‘happy birthday’ in Bahasa Indonesian, and yes, it was my birthday on the weekend. I officially turned 15 on Sunday the 12th, but celebrations started before that (after all, why wait?). Rosie had  a sleepover at a friend’s house on Friday night, and didn’t come home until Saturday afternoon, so Mama, Papa and I went to Ambassador Mall in Central Jakarta. It is our favourite mall ever, because it is basically a multi-story, upper-class flea market.
