End of a long weekend

It's almost the end of a cool and restful day. What a difference an extra off-day makes! I find myself with more time for other things besides housework. How I wish I have more long weekends like that.

It helps that I didn't drive back to my parent's place for dinner tonight because I met with a customer at the airport in the evening. I didn't feel like rushing from one end of Singapore to another for dinner. Not only was the timing bad, YK has a mouth full of ulcers and looks like he's coming down with a cold. So we chose to stay home.

When I announced I was making glass noodle soup for dinner, he thought I was going to force a bowl of bland and colourless meal down his throat. I can see why. I've never cooked glass noodles before and he had only tasted the healthy (tasteless) version made by my mother.

When I served the noodles, chockful of chicken, shrimp, fishcake and home-grown vegetables, he liked it so much, I offered him some of mine and settled for cheese and crackers myself. The block of cheese had been sitting in the fridge for so long, I'm glad I finally finished it. It would have been better if I had some wine at home.

Like I've said, I'm grateful for the restful day. It's back to work tomorrow. I do wish there is more work to do in the office though. Business hasn't resumed to orginal level yet but it is slowly getting better.
