WELL, WELL, GOOD-BYE TO 2010 Which had to end as every day’s daylight must end, giving us some beautiful sunsets. I trust for all of my friends, 2010 also had a beautiful ending, and that the New Year will be a year of joy, peace, love, and a deeper understanding of God our Creator.

ALICE READING IN THE EVENING in the relaxing area beneath our lumbung. We stayed at Hotel Lumbung Damuh for the last five nights in Bali, including Christmas Eve and Christmas. It was a very relaxing place, with the background of the waves hitting the shore just 30 yards from our lumbung (Balinese style home on pillars)!

THE PETRONAS TWIN TOWERS IN KUALA LUMPUR, in Malaysia. I was laying down on the street for this photo. I was out walking and couldn’t get a good view, so I hired a taxi driver to take me to the twin towers for the photo. I said, I don’t want to be too close or too far away, so I could get a nice shot of them lit up at night. Lo and behold, he drove to and parked right across the street from them. Like I said, to get a good shot I had to get down as low as possible and shoot up! I think it was worth the cab fare.

The Petronas Twin Towers (also known as the Petronas Towers or KLCC) are skyscrapers and twin towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 until surpassed by Taipei 101, but remain the tallest twin buildings in the world.[5]The building is the landmark of Kuala Lumpur with nearby Kuala Lumpur Tower.
