The morning was unusually quiet. Sound from busy school buses was not heard from the road next to our home. In fact the neighbourhood's daily hustle and bustle was absent this morning. No one was rushing out to beat the jam to get to work and neither were parents seen eager packing kids to school before the final bell rings.
Yippyy...it's a public holiday today!! 1st of May is Labour Day. Well, in this part of the world at least. When I was studying in the States, I discovered that folks in the land of Uncle Sam celebrate Labour Day on the first Monday in September. I read somewhere that the form for the celebration of Labour Day is to exhibit the "the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations". Whatever it is, the long holiday is very much appreciated by all.
As with other long holidays, many have made travel plans. I have none what so ever in mind yet. Nissa wants to go have Japanese food for lunch today. We'll probably do that. It is however, not going to help much on Mommy's vain efforts of trying to shed the extra kilos. But upon seeing her all ready to dig into the shashimi and shushi spread, I guess Mommy's trimmed waist line will have to wait a while (if it ever does happen...).
The weather is gonna be hot the next few days I bet. So stay cool folks and enjoy the long weekend :)
