long holiday

cleaning, Eid Mubarak, Hari Raya, holiday, junk, linen, matouk, national day, weather

It’s a long holiday this week… Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday… meaning only work on Monday and Friday. It is becoz of the double public holiday, and they overlaps each other… 😛

The Eid Mubarak or Hari Raya Aidilfitri falls on 30th and 31st August plus the Malaysia National Day on 31st August… Since the two public holidays overlap each other on 31st August, 1st September is declared as additional holiday… 😀

It was hazy since Friday… and it’s quite bad… but lucky it was raining heavily yesterday, 30th August, and today it was cloudy although the sun was shining in the afternoon for a few hours.

So what is best to do during the long holiday with the cooler weather?… well, cleaning up is one of them… so I decided to clean up some junks around… and today, I only manage to take out about 20% of my old junks which most of them are papers, magazines and books… but it’s enough to make some difference.

The other 80% are some more books, magazines, electronics stuffs and cloths… and there are large amount of cloths coz I have not thrown any cloths before I guess… or maybe I did once… 😛

Most of the cloths are shirts… casual or sport shirts and working shirts… they are not used so much especially the working shirts coz I grow size quite fast… 😛 yeah, you should know what I mean… 😛

I don’t know what to do with those cloths… but friends advice me to donate them… but I donno where to donate them… the cloths might look new but probably rotten coz they were sitting in the cabinet for some years… if they are made of high quality linen like the matouk linen, probably they are still in good shape… 😛

Anyways, I still need to continue with the clearing tomorrow… not planning to do all the 80%… if I can do another 20%, that would be great…

25th anniversary, celebration, gifts, gifts for parents, merdeka, national day

Today is the national day… in any country around the world, national day or independence day is celebrated with a big celebration… fireworks, concerts, air show, marching… just anything to display the country’s achievement since its independence… after all its the country’s birthday… anniversary… 😀

But this year, for a month, the atmosphere is just not there… it’s hardly to see anyone flying the flag… you can count the number of cars displaying the flag with your fingers… I’m not alone, others in other parts of the country are also saying the same thing… what is going on? Izzit more worth to buy a 25th anniversary gifts for parents compared to buying a flag?…

Can’t really blame the people… two incidents during the Merdeka’s month have greatly affected the patriotism atmospheres… how could the leadership said it’s just a minor thingy when two principles of two national schools… one at north and one at south of semenanjung express their racist remarks to the students and teachers openly seem to be off the hook?!!!… Teachers just can’t do to that… Teachers can’t preach racism!!!… But here we have two school principles doing and preaching racism to the nation’s new generation… to the nation’s future leaders!!! Should we blame the people for losing their senses?… I don’t think so… the authority should have swing into action and punish the two immediately!!!… if they have done that, I’m sure the sense of patriotism will be very high…
