Raya and such

Selamat Hari Raya folks!

Again the lull happened and the blog remained quite for a bit. Apologies. :(

Raya 2014 seemed abit subdued and slow and quiet. I have no idea why but the hustle and bustle at the inlaw's on the first day was absent. Too quiet to be true (although I was quietly glad) and quickly passed. Second day was not much different but the usual routine of my parents visiting my inlaws happened. Less hassle in food prep this time and kids had more fun cos my cousins came along too.

And since I anticipated the usual 3rd day bore, I decided to do some field visits (yes, work) on the third day. Nice weather, gloomy and cool but didn't manage to steal some time to train because I had no where to go!! So it was only work. 

I went to the foothill of Gunung Jerai but there was no proper park or track. At 8am it was lonely with only 2 or 3 other people who were tourist bus and lorry drivers perhaps waiting to ferry people. It would have been a good opportunity for me to do a hill run, but I just didn't want to risk safety. So I left and continued to work.

Then we were back in the city on the 4th night and so that was Raya. 

Good thing was kids had fun at their 'uncle & aunts' place. So we were less worried on how to keep them sane.

And so work started on 4th August as usual.

Have a blessed year ahead, folks.
