Living in Holland ~ Puan Fauziah Hanim's Residence



Fauziah or better known as Kak Jie to some of us, has been staying here in Voorschoten for a little more than three years.

This mother of three is skilled in various handicraft works like patchwork and quilting, smocking, american-style folk art and more recently flower arrangement and cake decorating.

Out and About - Bike Ride


We decided that the weather was too good to be staying indoors.

What started as a leisurely cycling around the countryside, we had cover more than 25km on the bike route from Wassenaar to Leidschendam town and through the Vlietland and Voorschoten, stopping briefly at various watering-holes and an all-important ice-cream parlour.

A great day was had by all with one very sore bum....mine!!!!
