Last week was a busy week for me and thus, I seems to have abandoned my blog for a week. LOL. Anyway, no worries, yours truly blog will reached the 10th anniversary next year, as I started blogging in 2007 in my previous blog. Thus, I still got a year to go before I can announced retirement... muahahahaha.... Just joking only.
Let me sum up what I have been doing for the Holy Week, which has just ended.
1. Yes, mentioning the Holy Week, I actually took a day off on last Thursday to attend church service as well as avoiding the peak hour jam at the causeway. The clever me managed to avoid the terrible jam and had a peaceful time in church on last Thursday night. Good Friday was a holiday in Singapore so I had a long weekend.
2. I thought of going to Desaru for a staycation but my wifey has other plans over the long weekend and we ended up visited most of the popular malls in JB, like Johor Premium Outlets, Aeon Bukit Indah, Tebrau City and etc. Not a bad idea as we jalan-jalan around instead of staying put in the resort which we just went last October.
3. Work has been piling up and that's the reason I didn't blog much last week and after a workout, it was very late and I feel like relaxing in my room with the air-cond fully blast. However, the workouts, especially running, is good to de-stress.
4. Though my next half-marathon will be held on April 10, I decided to take a break from long distance run last week as I just don't feel like doing it, though I did 5KM with my colleagues as well as in the gym. Not sure why, maybe I have been running weekly since CNY and decided to take a rest. However, I will go back to long distance running this week and next week, before the HM on next Sunday.
5. Oh..though I supposed to fast but I didn't and followed my Chinese colleague for a mutton ribs steamboat. The ribs were already cooked and we just needed to simmer it in the hot soup to warm it up. I love the ribs, it was delicious and the herbal soup was tasty. In fact, I felt warmed after the meal. I guess this is a winter meal in China, where they had it to warm up their body. And, not forgetting dipping the ribs in those peanut sauce.
