A glimpse of my life

This is our Sri Lankan maid, Mali. She's been working with us for three years now. She's a sweetheart if not the best cleaner. She's been using the Pelican Rapids Community Cookbook and coming up with some tasty treats! Mali lives here in Q8 while her teenage children live in her homeland with her mother. She only gets to see them every other summer due to finances. Last summer she asked to borrow the equivalent of $350 so she could fly home to see her children. How could we refuse?

Green Grass is a rare commodity here in Kuwait. We've got artificial grass installed in an area for students to relax during lunch breaks. The site of a worker actually sweeping the grass the other day made me laugh...
