Holiday is coming to an end.. for the time being!
This term our holiday is cut short because of SEP. One phase here and one phase there.. aih.. air tickets aren’t really worthwhile this time!
To see things positively, things are not so bad too. At least this time I don go, “I’m boredddddd~!!” as usual.. And I’ll treasure the time back home more! (This friday! This friday!)
So people! Let’s not be gloomy. This is just a temporary end to our hols.. and it’s good to be able to look forward to another 2 weeks of break after 5 days of work, isn’t it?
For today.. By God’s grace I had a good start..!
Because I had McD’s Sausage McMuffin with Eggge for breakfast! YAy~~~!!
Well, this is not taken this morning.. but this is it! Dragged myself up from bed so that I’ll be able to savor this meal.. the price paid for a good breakfast..! Anyways, McD makes ppl happy! Hey it rhymes a lil’..!
They should change their “i’m loving it” slogan to “McD, McD, the hungry becomes happy”!
And because of the good start, I was so in the mood for spring cleaning today! (so that Jong & Caryn & Bguat & Priya feel like coming back more..) Washed the bathroom, mopped the floor and cleared the caterpillars on the fan (shows how long we have not cleaned it.. :P) And tidied my bedroom, esp my part of it!! And threw away things (finally =.='") I’ve been meaning to throw away..
I know I know.. Most of you’re gonna go like, “Huh?? You call this clean? You haven’t seen mine~!” But for me it’s really spick’er and span’er than before ma. (sigh.. revealing yet another dark secret of mine.. harga runtuh-lah!)
And while I was mopping the floor where we put our shoes (you know~), I was suddenly reminded of this comment given by Jong (dont know why la your name always appears in my blog.. haha ;D) that she liked it when I was the one sweeping coz I’d always clean that part.. (ya maybe you dont remember but I do!!)
Nyways, what she said has actually become my motivation to clean those few pieces of tiles after that, which ppl tend to forget or neglect. It’s not for more compliments definitely, but I do it because I come to realize that it makes ppl more comfortable and more importantly, there is somebody who appreciates it.. and it makes all the difference!
So the lesson learnt today: Appreciate ppl & things around you! And express them verbally! Sometimes a little compliment makes ppl go a long way.
Therefore, here I would like to THANK all A.4.2 girls for your hard work & effort of keeping our burrow a squeaky clean place to live in! And thank you for abiding by the few ‘commandments’ we have in this place..
The ‘punch-in’ records of duty in the huz.. anyone who misses a turn gets a penalty.. jeng jeng
Scary? I think not at all.
Perhaps a lil’ legalistic. And calculative, some ppl might say. But I personally feel that sometimes it’s necessary to set boundaries & rules before the grace in friendship comes in. It’s better this way than to have hard feelings after that because so-and-so always doesn’t sweep the floor or dump rubbish and we do not know how to confront him/her. Dont you think so?
But yea, we do allow grace.. at times. After all, that’s what friends are for rite!? ^^
