Home during CNY holidays but not tossing raw fish.

Pink Episcia, sweet blooms from
my balcony garden
Plans never always turn out the way you expect them. So instead of driving across the causeway tomorrow I'm spending the long break at home in Singapore.

It will mean I'll be getting 6 hours more rest than I would have plus plus, of course add on the traffic jam time crawling across the causeway back and forth. There's a always a silver lining somewhere when you think about it.

It probably also means I'll be doing more sleeping than I had planned. Is that good? I don't think so.

Quiet time, time to read the books, fiddle with the plants, time to do some more scrapbook card experiments and may be more time to do some walking trails and therefore exercise.
We do have a lot of parks, just check check out the N Parks website. Amazing actually, there's so many. I'm thinking let's check out the Labrador with a friend.

Will Lo Hei (toss raw fish) after the weekend.

There were no eggs at the supermarket. The foreign workers are not the only ones who return home at this time, apparently the chickens do too.!

Funny in a quiet way

Some books require time to read and just savour or reflect on the thoughts they provoke, whether it's the characters or the thoughts coming out of them.
One of them is
The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Jay Fowler. It's interesting but you need a little more concentration.

Sylvia's daughter is just out of the hospital(no serious injury) and Sylvia tells herself that she is happy. But the next day reality sinks in with life's usual problems.
That's exactly what happens, why is it harder to hold on longer to happy thoughts or resolutions than let the unhappy prevail ..

" Already I have to remind myself to be happy. And you know , if it were the other way, if something had happened to Allegra, I wouldn't have to remind myself to be unhappy. I'd be unhappy the rest of my life. Why should unhappiness be so much more powerful than happiness?
One difficult member spoils a whole group....
One disppointment ruins a whole day......
It takes weeks to get into shape and ten days to get out of it....
That's my point... ....  We don't stand a chance "
