JB's new weekend blues again ...

Well, schools has restarted and it was a quiet last Saturday night for me as my wifey and the kids have to sleep early due to the new weekends in JB. It was pro and con as I can enjoyed my Saturday nights soccer on my Unifi tv, but then a day is wasted spending time with the family. I really miss the old Sat and Sun weekends in JB where Sat is always spent driving around to nearby towns, malls, theme parks and etc. I am sure a lot of parents working in the private sector who were off on Saturdays and Sundays agreed with me too.

Meanwhile, to ease the blues,  we had Japanese food last weekend, as the kids love it. We were back at Umatei restaurant in Permas Jaya.


My bento which consists of agedashi tofu, salmon, teriyaki chicken and edamane

My kids bento - edamane, vegetables, salmon and salad.

makis for all to share 

MY wifey's favorite temakis 

As well as her favourite 'popiah' rolls... 
Have a good weekend!

  2. What? "...a day is wasted spending time with the family..."!!! I bet you do not mean what you said. A day is never wasted, spending time with one's family. Tsk! Tsk! But yes, that weekend system is such a nuisance - same in Kedah where my girl was...once.

    1. Oh...I get what you mean. You could have spent the day with your family but with the system, you cannot...so the day is wasted just like that. True! True! Glad they do not have that here. I also hate it when they have replacement lessons on Saturdays. One day, precious quality time with the family gone!

    1. kucing - Already got used to it but still loves the old weekend. Sometimes, it's ridiculous the majority, private sector, are working on the old weekend while the schools and govt depts are operating on the new weekend.

  11. It is really a nuisance this changing of weekends, Will take some time to adjust to it. Someone I knew in JB missed a filing deadline because she forgot that Friday is a weekend.
