Rest day ...

REST! That's a very important thing to do during weekends, whether you have been working hard in office, exercising hard at the gym over the last few days, charity work, cleaning the house, cooking for the family and etc for the past week. Today I woke up late and nap again about 4pm after running my errands as well as lunch with family. Nothing beats having a good sabbatical rest day on a Sunday after a week of work in office, gym , blogging and studying. And, it was so refreshing after the rain! I had a short , relaxing slow jog of about 2KM near home. It's always good to keep a day just for rest.

I was at Lavender Bistro for lunch today before we start doing our shopping for groceries. I am glad Lavender has restored back some of their meals in the menu especially the mushroom and egg fried rice, which was my kids' favourite.


Fried Egg and Mushroom Rice - My wifey had this with my little princess 

Strawberry short cake again for my little princess

The expression on the face give all away on how delighted she was!

Ham and Cheese Ciabatta with fries - That's what I had for lunch today and it's my favorite meal too. Light and delicious.

And, not forgetting an Americano for both my wife and myself
Thus, remember to put aside a day to rest .... just do nothing but rest and rest ..... and enjoy recreation!
