I knew Raya was coming, I knew last Friday was a very last minute announced special public school holiday, I knew the Muslim friends were and are having fun, I knew this week is a school holiday for me, I knew it will be a traffic jam everywhere in Penang and highway, but I didn’t know about the exact date of the Hari Raya until I see everyone wishing “Happy Hari Raya” on Twitter and Plurk, I suck a bit, but now I know so I wish you all have a nice Hari Raya Aidilfitri. =)
So Raya was Sunday and Monday. The holiday started on Friday and I have been on holiday mood since then after a 9 days long trial exam. I need a break but I don’t know what am I doing, I don’t have a plan for this holiday and it’s so unorganized, it’s like there’s so many thing want to do but I don’t know where to start. That’s bad.
The holiday mood started on last Thursday right after school. I didn’t go home right away to sleep or anything but instead went to the cinema to watch Gamer with Arron. The movie was pretty cool, you will like it and understand it if you do or did play game. I did play games last time but not now.
Simon, Arron, Edmond, Fangs.
Andy, Min Sheng.
I then went to karaoke at Red Box on Friday, it’s a usual routine for me and them since last year where we will (mostly) go to karaoke to sing our crazyness out after the exam, before the holiday week. It’s a standard thing for us. It’s kinda tiring singing there, I still hardly improve my singing.
Then I went for movie again and it’s the Singapore’s film, Where Got Ghost. I gave it a rating of 4.5/10 because I don’t think it’s good enough, felt like nothing’s new from Jack Neo.
Saturday was pretty quiet to me. Woke up in a dull, cloudy morning and the Sun was hiding somewhere, which made me felt so lazy to go places. I went to town for lunch with mom and I came home, staying indoor for whole afternoon.
I then spent time at home reorganized my stuff and clear all the papers and notes lying around since before trial exam. I don’t like the room to look like a mess, I like to have a clean and nice workstation. =) Took me few hours for this and hopefully this will be clean for at least a few weeks and then I will need to do it again. It’s true that I like cleaning out my workstation because I enjoy the clean look after that.
Sunday was the first day of Raya and I went to Queensbay Mall in the afternoon to wait for Alvin who lives nearby to come and fetch me to the Penang Hokkien’s mini gathering at Egate. It’s so crowded at Queensbay and interesting to see the Muslim in their nice Malay attire shopping around in the mall.
Nothing much for me to do there except walking around and looking at people. I saw the same spectacles shop name where I bought my specs, A-look and I took my specs for the specs washing service, it’s a free service and it’s a way to pass my time.
Alvin then came and fetch me to 3G Cafe at E-gate to meet up with the famous podcast, Penang Hokkien’s host and listeners. It had been 2 years since I last meet up with John Ong, the host and creator of the show. Will talk about it in another post.
A fun fair near Queensbay Mall.
After being at E-gate for 2 hours, I and Alvin went back to Queensbay Mall again for dinner and to shop for some stuff. Later in the evening, I went to the airport to fetch my brother and that concludes my Sunday.
Monday, today is a day that I spent my time with my brother. It’s still a public holiday for everyone and it’s Gurney Plaza that I went. It’s just window shopping and watched a movie, G-Force in the cinema just now, the movie was cute and that’s what I wanted to say about it.
That’s all for now, Happy Hari Raya Aidilfitri and school holiday, pals. =)
