(I finished my week 13/ Deepavali post with a lot more pictures, so check that out if you haven’t seen it!)
We were in Penang the beginning of the week, as we stayed with family for Deepavali.
We visited a temple for prayers
Halloween was this week, so I carved pumpkins as a way to share American culture and traditions! I couldn’t find the usual big orange pumpkins like we have in the US, so I settled for a cooking pumpkin I found at a local market. (The saleswoman was very confused when I said I didn’t care that the specific pumpkins I chose —the biggest two I could find— weren’t going to be nice for cooking, and all I cared was their outside appearance). After quite a bit of struggling with the difficult pumpkins, Ying and I carved them!
