IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!! I've always looked forward to my birthday every year, but somehow the zest is almost none this year. The mind seemed to be clouded with many thoughts and negative vibes. And I have neglected my blog. Again. It's like at the back of my mind but I just couldn't bring myself to blog. Could it be burn-out? Or I haven't learn to let go? I digress.
I knew that January to March, and especially February were/are going to be busy months, but didn't realise that it is this tough.
Socially, hubby and I hosted some friends and colleagues for Lunar New Year gatherings over 3 different days during the 15-day celebration. Besides, we still had the customary visits to family and friends. Being ambitious, I baked my Lunar New Year goodie - Pineapple Tarts and assortment of savoury snacks, when I could have the easy way out by buying them off the shelves.
Work-wise, there were quite a number of late nights and working weekends. Each day at work seemed long and weary as I chose to lunch in most of the time (to clear work and avoid lunch time crowd). Despite being so busy, I went for wakeboarding during one of the weekends and ended up aching for a few days. In that same afternoon, I still attended an Easter baking workshop by Joycelyn at Shermay's Cooking School (promise to blog about that soon). I must have really worn out all my energy...
Bottomline is, for my birthday, I just have to escape! Somewhere. Out. Of. Singapore. Was exploring several places with hubby and settled on Macau (3D2N over the weekend). Why Macau of all places? We wanted a short holiday since we only have time for one day leave on my birthday; haven't been to Macau; heard ravings about the new Venetian Macau; I wanted to try authentic Portuguese Egg Tarts; we wanted somewhere cool etc etc. Why do I have to justify my vacation huh? It's my birthday!
Anyways, will blog about the Macau trip soon (gosh, I still have the Dec Kansai trip and Jan Sipadan trip...) Thank goodness the peak period for work is ending in a few weeks' time!
