My friends, teachers and students are surely enjoying themselves now although a few are known to be lamenting about having not started doing the schoolwork yet. One even called a few school subjects to go to hell, "douse yourselves with gasoline and then give me the lighter". Lol. The pressure.
I don't go out of town this holiday, so far. Fortunately, I went to Vietnam last Chinese New Year holidays with my family but most of the shopping outlets were closed especially the famous Ben Tanh market. Nonetheless, I still enjoyed myself tremendously with their delicious local foods. The local goods although more expensive than usual were still affordable. That is why many malaysians love to go there, and they were quite everywhere.
Yet the holidays are not without work, I assure you. I have been to the school twice to clean my work space, throwing out all the junks that I have been keeping for many years, things that I thought might come useful someday. I have been doing the same thing at home except that I called the recycler man to come and collect all kinds of papers, mags and used books. The old newspapers are certainly in demand nowadays because the sell back price is, to me, very good. A few years back it was a mere 50 sen per jengkal compare with RM2.50 I got that day. The good SISWA mags and the used PMR and SPM books are given to the orphanage where they are much needed.
Relatives came down from Tumpat to attend a niece wedding. They stayed with us for a very short time before going off to Kuantan, where we will gather again this friday for the 'majlis bertandang' on saturday. This holiday is really full of wedding invitations from friends who have children getting married like Kak Midah, Kak Esah and several others.
