Today I had another opportunity for a few hours of morning ME TIME as Drama Queen had to be in school at 9 a.m. for her weekly librarian meeting. Ever since she started high school, I hardly have the time to go out for more than two hours as my morning time is reserved just for her ~ to Uber her to the tuition center (3x a week) and to school for her back to back activities. This year Drama Queen is into volleyball, athletics and taekwondo. She’s also a librarian and has to be in school in the morning twice a week for meeting and duty. In church, she’s starting to get actively involved in church activities, which includes a compulsory street-feeding project.
I jumped at the opportunity to do some CNY retail therapy since I have about 4 hours of free time before Cass comes back from school. Off I went to Mid Valley Megamall, the nearest mall to where I stay. Traffic in and out of Mid Valley for the past two weeks has been horrendous due to shoppers doing their last minute CNY shopping. I was extremely lucky I got a spot to park right outside the entrance of the mall, effortlessly, in less than 5 minutes! So true to the adage “the early bird catches the worm”. And it’s so easy to be early when I shop alone and don’t have to wait for the dawdlers at home to get ready. Mothers with many kids will relate to me on this 😉 Traffic back home was congested, partly contributed by the bumper-to-bumper traffic jam on Federal Highway that spilled onto the KL-Seremban Highway and Old Klang Road. The iconic EPF building on Jalan Gasing was 40% on fire around noon yesterday, which was around the time that I drove home.
I got home just on time to receive Cass from the school transporter.
Today is the school’s CNY celebration and students donned on their red CNY clothes. The tee that Cass is wearing here was wore only once by Alycia when she was Cass’ age 5 years ago, also at the school’s CNY celebration event. This is the second time that the tee is worn and it still looks brand new. On regular days, the girls don’t like donning on bright red clothes. They find them too gaudy, especially those with CNY motifs.
Cass saying “hi” to our neighbor’s cats on the 7th floor. Our neighbor has 4 cats that look identical. They must be siblings. These 4 adorable cats’ favorite pass time is to lay precariously on the outdoor air cond unit, taking their peaceful siesta. I always wonder how they never fall off the air cond unit in the midst of their beauty sleep, lol!
