Never mind the title, but I'm going to be away for a few days. Merajuk ke?? Well, maybe I'm feeling just a little sad, upset and even sakit hati a mere bit. It's not with anyone though (read: ader sedikit with someone), but (more) with myself.
I could have kicked myself for being oblivious and not looking up for any holiday plans for the family. The initial idea of going to a destination "just around here" didn't materialize, of course. And now, after an exhausted year of pulling through work load in the office, I am in dire need of a holiday. The need to recover and recuperate for the new year and the challenges that come along with it was so apparent. Unfortunately, unlike the previous years, this year end had nothing to look to and that took a toll on my mood and all things that come with it. Even the cats noticed my hostility towards them.
And this rotten feeling obviously must not carry on towards the new year. There are so many things already lined up and I need to go fix myself; mood, emotions, motivation - the works!
Choice of destinations were pretty limited. And time was indeed a factor too. I've taken leave till Christmas but there's my niece's wedding to attend on Christmas day. I thought of the islands, but being out in the sun and appearing all tanned during the wedding, wasn't much of my fancy. I tried looking up Sydney, but most flights were booked. Bangkok was the same too. Unless I was ready to pay a bomb for the tickets. In the end.....I decided our down south neighbour, Singapore.
This holiday will be somewhat different coz' it will only be us girls, Mommy and Nissa & Farah. The guys?? Well, they have their own turf to go play at. Faris had already made plans and Abe?? Ahhh...malas nak elaborate lah, and hence, summarized in the title of this posting.
We'll be starting our journey in a while. I'm driving into the island. Our bags are packed and we are almost ready to go. We'll be there till Wednesday and then we'll head straight to Mom's in Seremban to help out with the wedding.
So take care all....will try and update if I get the chance to do so in the Lion City :)
Happy holidays and Merry Christmas!
