Raya and Merdeka Week-long Holiday

The past week has really been good, so many things accomplished and done, and things left undone.  Undone because I focused on the more important things and chose to ignore the less important ones.

Sunday 28/8: 
Joined a full day meditation course and focused on training the mind to being in the present.  Very grateful to have heard from and understood a little more about peace, contentment and practice.
J's sister and her kids arrive at our house for a little holiday reunion.

Monday 29/8:
Took time to visit my old aunt with my mom and sister, spending time with the people who matter in my life.
Watched "Horrible Bosses" movie at Wangsa Walk with J, just the 2 of us, at night.  

Tuesday 30/8: 
House cleaning with J, while the kids enjoy a day of swimming.  Screened potential tenants for an apartment.

Wednesday 31/8:
Kids and cousins visited Batu Caves as a local excursion trip, while I spent time with Baby.
Completed apartment rental transaction safely.

Thursday 1/9:
J's sister's family went back to Penang after our dim sum lunch.  
Kids spent the afternoon at revision and reading.
After dinner, took kids to Ikea for their favourite session at Smaland.
At Ikea, bought a kitchen sink unit at the irresistable price of RM15.90 (normally RM90).
Bought for what?  We do not know, but since we like doing up houses, it's bound to be used one day.
Wei sprained his toes at Ikea Smaland.

Friday 2/9:
Car refused to start early in the morning, when Wei and I both had our dental appointment.
Called for a taxi to take us to the the dentist, and called for the breakdown service to send a replacement car battery. Completed dental sessions just in time, despite being late.  T
Returned home by taxi, where the mechanic has arrived and waited with the new battery.
Battery replaced.  Mom arrived to take Wei to see a Chinese tabib for his sprained foot.
Went to office, completed some work.
Went to the bank, and to the apartment management office to complete resident registration for my new tenants.
Went to Gas Malaysia office in Desa Pandan for gas connection.
Came home to find Wei playing with Grandpa's unused wheelchair, called him young Professor X, which he enjoyed despite having his foot wrapped up in a bandage.

Saturday 3/9:
Took Wei to his tuition session in the wheelchair, he was both thrilled and embarrassed.
My pampering facial session and grocery shopping.
Watched Harry Potter movie with the kids at home.

Sunday 4/9:
Relaxed at home in the morning. then went for an education session on multi-currency loans to increase my knowledge about investments.
Dinner with family by the riverside restaurant.
Wei's foot improved a lot.
Kids read books at quiet time just before bed.

All in all, a great week, with much accomplished and a lot of rejuvenation.
