Kaohsiung. Taiwan. Sunday. Morning showers. 24°. 6:35a.m. Alexander is very active and chatty this morning. Although it's still 'baby chatter' so I have no idea what he's really saying.

Kaohsiung. Taiwan. Saturday. Overcast. 26°c. 630a.m. Bottle feed for Alex. Then it is toys time. I have started limiting Alexander to his tablet usage.

Kaohsiung. Taiwan. Monday. Blue skies. 27°c. 6:30 a.m. Woke up to the sound of a strange noise. Alexander was tampering with my smart phone, but luckily I was screen locked. Not a bad phone either. I've had a few over the years but this one us pretty good considering its price. It's a Samsung J7. … Continue reading October 24th, 2016 | The Interns
