I’m off tomorrow to [Kuching](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuching) (somewhere near [here](http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=kuching,+malaysia&ie=UTF8&om=1&z=15&ll=1.522457,110.375948&spn=0.024796,0.041757&t=k)), to spend a week before and a week after [Chinese New Year](http://www.educ.uvic.ca/faculty/mroth/438/CHINA/chinese_new_year.html) with [Anthony’s family](http://www.flickr.com/photos/timbomb/sets/72057594114318895/).
This is the first time we’ve had a chance to visit them for about two and a half years, so it’s going to be great to go back. Last time I was only there for seven days, so I’m looking forward to a bit longer to get to see more of the countryside around the city, spend some more time getting to know the kids (who are all much more grown-up) and relaxing.
I’ll be taking some work along with me to take advantage of the quiet and the absence of Internet to get some writing done. We’ll see how that goes…
I’ll be back on Feb 25. I really, really doubt I’ll post anything much between now and then, but I’ll take some pictures and post them on [Flickr](http://www.flickr.com/photos/timbomb/) when I get back. Possibly pictures of me measuring twice my current diameter from being force-fed [char siu](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Char_siu)!
Happy Year Of The Pig!
