Accepting Christina & Liau’s wonderful hospitality in their very distinctive home, exploring both (i) Christina’s exotic kitchen and (ii) Liau’s awesome zeitgeist collections, catching up on admin and maintenance work (e.g. emails, travel blog, photos, financials, equipment) and preparing our upcoming travels to Sabah/Malaysia and Sulawesi/Indonesia.
