Wow, we do kind of missed the other half of the Slow Movers during the Jacob's Walk. Hope next year, the whole "Malaysian Family" can drive up Penang and 'break' the bridge together.... and that will definitely break another Malaysian Book of Records ..... the largest Multi-Color Family in a single Run! Sounds good ..yeeehhh...
