So....more about my week.
This was actually a slower week than normal. Our dead time Wednesday through Friday is between 1 and 6, because everyone works, so really that's the slowest time of the day. I try to find things to fill up my time during that time.
I am just going to jump around my week a bit. On Friday, we went out to dinner with Jeffery (the member that has driven us around a lot lately) and his family. The kids just graduated from school so its a big deal to them now.
At the dinner, I picked up a soup, and I was about to eat it, and Sister Caroline asked me "Do you know what that is?" and of course I don't know what it is, so she tells me that it is fish lips. And so I'm like.... "Ou, so I am kissing a fish!" It was funny to them, but I just imagine a ton of fish kissing me and it grossed me out a little. So I think that's the most interesting thing I've eaten here so far. :) but hey, soon we will be eating Biawak, which is like a komoto dragon. You'll have to look it up. :)
Also on Friday, we went to a couple lessons. One of them was to a family with a bunch of small kids. And during our lesson, we were trying to talk about prophets, but then the mom lifts up her shirt to a kid that's like 4 years old, and then I totally lost focus about what I was teaching, because they show everything here. Culture shock for me!
As I said, I went to a market on Saturday. I bought a few things there like a shirt, a G-shock watch, which seems to be a pretty expensive watch in the States but I've never heard of them before, and I also bought something called a Tikai. A Tikai is usually a bamboo mat that people lay on (You can see it in the Mormon movie called The Other side of heaven, it's a great movie) but I bought a softer mat. I tried it Saturday night, and its really hard. I woke up extremely sore because the floor is just too hard. maybe it would be better on carpet, but that is almost non-existent in Malaysia. After that we took a short visit to some caves. I'll send a couple pictures of it :)
Sunday, I woke up and one of the elders, Elder Poppleton, got extremely sick. He is a disaster right now. We think he got sick from some of the food we ate the night before, which was a birthday party for Jackson, a member in our church branch. He has only been out for 3 weeks though so he still isn't used to the food. I am so glad that didn't happen to me. His companion and I gave him a Priesthood blessing that night. It was a really cool experience for me because I've never given a blessing with oil before.
But that night, Elder Hirschi and I went over to a Budayuh family's house. They were baptized into the church a few months ago, and they are really cool. I was having a rough time understanding his Malay, but he was making me laugh nonstop. It was great. :D :D
Anyway, I can't think of anything else for this week. Those are the highlights. :D :D
Love you guys! Can you guys send me more pictures of what it looks like outside? Then I"ll send you more pictures of what it looks like here. :D :D
