There have been some interesting replies to the blog on “Fitting In” . I shall blog some more about being a square peg in a round hole, or an orang putih* in a Malaysian world, tomorrow.
This pix (my American son-in-law fitting in down in the kampung in Melaka) is for Hrugaar, who thinks, quite rightly, that doing the dishes is a great way to start…

Thanks Glenda. And yeah, doesn’t it warm your heart to see a man making himself useful around the house? :oD
Or was son-in-law doing a knife-throwing act? Or chopping bugs in half in mid air? (no really, I have seen that done)
Your SIL doesn’t have a widowed father, by any chance? Or a much older brother…?
sorry, Satima, no…
Not sure actually what he was doing there. Keeping the women out of the kitchen?
