Tired.....Long Break Awaits...


(Picture courtersy of www.threebestbeaches.com)

Past two weeks was tiring, hubby also very tired due to the hotel project he's working on, however we are looking forward for a long break starting tomorrow, yeah... cny break. Many of us are drained by long hours of work, working in a manufacturing environment, typically I spend 12 hours away from home, on the road by 7.30am and on the road again by 6.00 - 7.30pm.

By the time I reached home, I'm quite exhausted but the kids are so delighted to see me back, planning and urging for time together. One of our favourite activity is to take a stroll together along our long corridor, taking the lift to P2 (10th floor), walk from unit 1 to 12, take the stairs down to P1 (9th floor), walk from unit 12 to 1, take the stairs down to 10 (8th floor), walk from unit 1 to 12........ in between we skipped a floor or two until we reach 6th floor. There are times they cycled, most of the time shouting, laughing and singing all the way, recently they have been singing cny songs taught at school. While strolling we will admire people's plants, external decoration, peep at peoples' interior design, tease puppies (yeah, some of my neighbors reared dogs in their apartments), comment the coloring scheme on people's wooden doors etc...

Yesterday we spent the night packing, playing horse back ride with daddy and were totally knocked down by 10.30pm......

We will be away at our hometowns starting tomorrow.......to be reunited with our loved ones, cny is our favourite season besides Christmas.... here wishing everyone "Xin Nian Quai Le, Sen Ti Jian Kang, Hong Pau Tuo Tuo".
