Sorry it's been a few days!!! Time escapes us very easily over here!!!!
To recap on the last few days, here's a quick rundown.
The highlight of Sunday was that it was Adrian's 31st birthday :) We all celebrated by enjoying a meal together at Artillery in Wat Bo road, which made some delicious macro bowls!!! And disco fries. We then headed on to the Blue Pumpkin for Adrian's favourite treat in Siem Reap - coconut sorbet. On Friday last week, Jimmy and the JVS students surprised Adrian with a birthday cake and all the kids enjoyed a meal and then we all jumped up and had a dance with the kids. It was heaps of fun! And Adrian was so humbled from being spoilt. To top it off, we all were blessed to enjoy a delicious home cooked meal by Jimmy's mum which was incredibly nice. Family dinner!!!!
In terms of truck progress, we went on Sunday to pick up the truck from Than's workshop however it was not finished yet. They needed another day. But it was great to get an update on how the drawer for the chaibles was going and everything else!!!
Yesterday (Monday) we got to pick up Oun Sam Lung from the workshop :) We were so excited when we saw the finished job by Than and his staff!!! We now have a heavy duty drawer for the storage of the chaibles (which also accommodates for easy access to them!), a bookshelf inside the truck box and also an iron frame to support an awning which we hope to get measured up for tomorrow!!! The team at Than's workshop did such a good job, we are extremely impressed. Here's the finished product below:
Today we were on a mission to organise the vehicle registration (so we can finally get number plates!). Today was our third attempt to get it sorted by this office. And what a looonnnnngggg day it was!!!! Unfortunately, when we turned up in the morning, we were sent on a wild goose chase around Siem Reap to find a customs office to get a stamp on our paperwork that we later found out we didn't even need. We stopped for lunch, then headed back to the registration office and unfortunately had to wait HOURS for the paperwork to be sorted, as it was so incredibly busy!!! It was super hot today too, but we were saved by the rain which brought the temperature down dramatically, thank buddha!!!!!!! So YAY now we have the registration papers processed, we pick up the plates in 1 week. Phew. We also have a designer at 'Colour House Prints' creating some design options for the outside of the vehicle! Looking forward to seeing what they come up with.
