Another long weekend

What a surprise to see the flowers
Another long weekend gone as last Friday was a public holiday. We went for a gathering with old friends from secondary (high) school. Most of them are married with children ranging from 4 years old to 12 years old. That reminded me that I am getting old and I should treasure life more.

Then as usual with holidays, we took the parents out for a meal. My spouse also helped them to repaint their door and listened to their grouses about the various things that needed repair around the house. I guess when we grow old, it is harder for us to perform house maintenance tasks.

To wrap up the holidays, we watched a TV movie with the title "Temple Grandin". It is a biographical film of Dr. Grandin who was diagnosed with autism when she was a child but then went on to overcome many obstacles to earn a doctoral degree. A truly inspiring movie.


  1. Thanks for recommending the movie, plan to watch it. Wonder if I can get the DVD here.

  2. Sounds like a great weekend! I'll have to check into that movie. Treasuring life is a good things to be reminded of. I have been gritting my teeth and trying to keep that in mind as it has been a tough day with my littlest.

  3. Hi Ju Ju, I am not sure whether the DVD is sold here or not, you can check out the local shops. I watched the recording recorded when Astro screened this movie on HBO last year.

    Hi Jamie,
    Yes, do check out the movie. During tough days, I must admit it is very difficult for me to treasure life and not complain about it. :)

  4. eh eh...daun lidah buaya....very hard to see it have flower

  5. Hi Small Kucing, yes, it is true - that is why I was so surprised to the flowers.
