Long weekend ahead

WOO HOO! The long weekend is here! Too bad, I'm not jetting off to anywhere, especially not when YK's away (remember I have fish duty?).

Some people we know are in Mongolia and London at this moment. Flying Pink Elephants has escaped the chill in London and must be sunbathing at a beach in Thailand this very minute. How nice!

I'm actually quite happy listening to my colleague talk about her recent holiday even if it makes me reminisce about my own.

While looking through my travel albums, I can't help but marvel at some beautiful gardens we've come across.


Even the wild flowers in Belgium can be amazingly gorgeous! It's virtually impossible to get our flowers to bloom so profusely here. Despite our efforts, we still can't get the plants in the school garden to flourish. Unlike my own patio garden, we're working with a pretty challenging environment here and I need to find a solution soon.

Since I like challenges, I should spend the weekend doing some research and planning what to grow. Might as well make the long weekend a productive one.

Nah, no need to jet off to anywhere, you have a beautiful garden right out in your patio, you have a beach nearby, you can access to great hawker food (oh!), you have pets, you have CH, oh you can even go to Sentosa for day of gambling if you want too... see, life is wonderful even if you aren't on vacation :)
