2013 has been a year of ups and downs, both in our lives and outside. As for Malaysia, the elections came and went and even though the Opposition claimed all kinds of trickery, the ruling party won by a narrow margin and things have more or less gone back to normal. For Repin and I we got another grandchild to love- Rania of the smiling eyes and laughing face, though I know that she can also cry so loudly and angrily!
The last two weeks before the New Year Sarah and I have been driving up and down to KL , to appeal against her transfer, to buy some new stuff for her future house and to clean up the Zamrud Apartment. Finally we got news that Sarah's transfer is final and she has to report to Johor Bahru by 2 January . Neville came down from Sarawak to go with her to Johor and we took some time to visit Rizal in Singapore. Then Sarah and Neville went to Batu Pahat where she would be working and looked at houses for rent.
