My Favorite Brother-in-Law

My brother-in-law from Newcastle, Australia came to visit us after his trip to India. The last time he came back was in July 2011 as it was his nephew's wedding..It has been a year and a half since we last saw him.

When my parents-in-law were still alive, he came back regularly. Now he still does his best by seeing us as regular as possible.

He is the eldest son (third in the family) of my late PIL and my husband is the second youngest in the family of 12 siblings. He is a permanent Australian resident since he married my European SIL in Australia.

I knew him even before I got married. I remember each time he came back, I would be his guide. I would take him all over the place.

But this time, I couldn't make it. So my girl helps me by taking him around for food. He will be here for a short while. His siblings are going to meet and have a great dinner.

Have a nice stay here in Ipoh, my dearest BIL..
