CHARACTERS I’VE MET …

*** Please double click on photo to enlarge!
One of the most endearing `Characters’ I’ve met is a five year old Thai/Australian girl … Angi.   Thai mother (Sunahn) and Australian father (Greg).
This was at Rebak Marina, Langkawi, Malaysia … and they lived on a 13-14 metre power boat, an ex Pilot boat I think?
ANGI-BATH-REBAK MARINA

* ANGI'S BATHROOM-REBAK MARINA ... SHE MIGHT ASK FOR MORE IN FIVE YEARS? *

A-P1311315

* SUNAHN, ANGI AND GREG ... REBAK MARINA, LANGKAWI, MALAYSIA *

`Angi’ was a very clever little girl … being capable of speaking English, Thai and Malay fluently … and had the demeanor of an  Angel!

* LLOYD AND `ANGI' ... ON AN AFTERNOON SAILING DATE! *

I knocked on the side of their boat one day and out came the Angel to welcome the visitor

Me …“Is Dad home, Angy?”

Angy …“Father is below watching a DVD … and he is naked!!” came the reply!

Me …“Then I should come back when he’s more available!”

A-P1311326

* A HEAVY BOAT ... WITHOUT ANY PORTHOLES ... MASSIVE SIX CYLINDER DIESEL ... AND DRIVE TRAIN WITH REVERSIBLE PROP, NO GEARBOX! *
