4-day work week

I took the day off last Friday to attend my grand-aunt's funeral. Her daughter (my aunt) had to fly back all the way from Vancouver, hence the 5-night wake services.

Lazy bones were creeping all over me when I woke up on Monday to drag myself off the bed and prepare for the day. However, I consoled myself that its going to be another short week - Labour Day falls on a Friday - yippee!!! And instantly I felt energized again!

What shall we do on another long weekend? Oh well, feel like taking a drive up to Genting Highlands. Our last time there was probably more than 2.5 yrs ago. I wonder if I can survive the drive there with my brat??

Then again, its HomeDec this weekend, starting on 30 April. So how? Go hunting again for some leads? Aiyoh so sien lar, been there like 4 times for the past 2 years and kinda know what to expect already. Moreover, I think I need a reliable contractor cum woodwork expert more than anything else.

I realise that we tend to spend so much time & money in planning for the kitchen. Wonder why hor? Its like we spend like an 1-2 hrs a day in the kitchen at most but say 8 hrs a night in our bedroom but we never did put in as much thought and effort in our bedroom planning!

Having a long weekend seems like so much time left .. but before we can blink an eye ... we will be back slogging at the office desk!

Dear, I'll suggest you should take this opportunity to go for a short break with hubby & lit bryan at genting, nothing is more important than family time. Agreed?

yeahhhhh i LOVE 4-day weeks!! they should make it a norm. hehehe

anyways, i somehow have to say that we did put it LOTS of hours into planning for our kitchen as well. but honestly, it was all worth it. i absolutely love my kitchen and the truth is, i do spend hours in there. hehehe. perhaps nearly as much time as i do in the bedroom! so yeah, i think time put into planning for the perfect kitchen is worth the while.

p/s: we hired a local carpenter from kelantan and he did an amazingly good job. also went to get the tiles for the countertops ourselves to save cost, then had to settle for an ikea stainless stail island because of cost issues.. quite a bit of initial headaches but oh so worth it! hang in there! i'm sure things'll fall into place for your kitchen too eventually ;)
