Another chick flick. A funny story with the message for women that all boys will grow up eventually. Problem is, I came away thinking women are frivolous and men are creative. Opps!!!! And mind the language....would make a trouper blush!!! Anyway, did make me laugh so 3 out of 5.

Balik Pulau means the other side of the island, apparently. Well the bus trip of 40 mins on the 401E, (plug for Rapid-Penang), up and over the hills is quite something and gives you the feeling of going over to the other side!!! It is Durian time and they are everywhere at the moment. I didn't realise how many grew on one branch, never mind on the whole tree. A walk in the forest becomes very hazardous with Durian trees a round. Nice Church too.
We also met Mr Fong Ten Sent a silversmith. He is 68 years young. I bought a couple of silver miniatures from him. See http://david-dollhouse.blogspot.com/. He has a miniature wok and burner in silver which I will get on our next trip.
And for something completely different....furniture. From the exhibition blurb..."As a child, Danish designer and architect Verner Panton (1926–1998) had always dreamt of a large room full of colourful cushions. His designs reveal that love for bold colours and his preference for spatial harmony and comfort." And did he do just that! Eat your heart out IKEA. Like our Penang flat, red is the new black!!!
