a week at the factory
y oh my, here I am in the place of my birth, Singapore! waiting to fly out to visit my very exotic brother Richard, Tracy and the spectacular Rafael ( he is only 5 but is already spectacular!) having just spent a week at the factory in Surabaya, Indonesia. I know that some of you wanted to see pictures of the factory and so here they are! I am very proud to be a part of this factory because it is amazing, - clean and airy, brand new machinery and great working conditions for the 2000 employees who live in the surrounding Jombang areas - it also produces some wonderful wooden toys! What never fails to impress me though is the skill of the workers who still rely on relatively low tech practices to produce a professional finish, as you can see from the paint mixing area!
