Last Saturday I was blessed with a visit from Johanna & Simon Keogh who arrived with three dazzlingly beautiful dakinis (plus an old friend Azlan Mustapha who now lives in KKB). It was Azlan who first brought Johanna & Simon to Magick River in 1994, a few days before I relocated to the High Hut. Since then I had only seen Johanna & Simon once, when their firstborn Ella was about three months old. What a treat to meet them again and be introduced to their terrific twins, Sofia & Hanna (4), and to say 'Ello to Ella (now 9). The Keoghs are indeed a noble, creative, loving and absolutely photogenic family. I commemorate the Keoghs' all-too-brief visit with this photo album dedicated to enduring friendship!

introducing Johanna & Simon Keogh to Magick River in 1994...
|Ella, Queen of the Jungle: she took to the river like an otter!|
|At 9 Ella seems the most level-headed member |
of the Keogh family (her mum says Ella always knows best!)
|Here's Ella hamming it up as the Dangdut Queen of Pertak.|

|Sofia the skeptic doubts I could ever do her beauty justice |
with my dinky Sony Cybershot.

|Johanna is one incredibly lovely mum... |
she grew up near the Assunta Hospital in PJ.
|Simon & Johanna are both architects. They live in Dublin, Ireland.|

|Johanna was born a Varghese and has a sister named Sharmin.|
|Life is but a dream but how sweet it is...|

|Simon & Sofia do a daddy & daughter pose...|
|A very happy daddy indeed!|
|This could be Sofia the Raghead Doll - ain't she a babe?|
|Hanna always has a ready smile for the camera...|
|Dakini in a bikini - or rockdancing raver?|
|Go, Hanna, go!|
|Those eyes can get away with just about anything!|
|Hmmm...what havoc will Hanna Keogh wreak in 13 years?|
