I have so much to say and yet I can't find anything to say.

I have so much to say and yet I can't find anything to say. I suppose this is what happens when one does not blog often. My last post was 2nd November, that's half a month ago. Let's glean through the weeks.

I have been busy cleaning the house. I wish we live in a dust-free, dirt-free and anything icky free environment. I have also been busy cooking. A simple meal may take 10 minutes to eat but hours to prepare. I have also spent quite a substantial amount of time sitting in traffic jams. I almost feel that jams are a lot worse after a festive period. I suspect people get new cars to go back hometown with and when they come back, KL roads are overloaded.

I have also been reading. At the moment I am reading The Art of Teaching Ballettheart.jpg. It's a delightful book, light reading and full of quaint little quotes that I can rattle to the students in class. A friend actually lent me a copy years ago but I hesitated to read it. It's an expensive book and I did not want to spoil it. By spoiling I mean bent or tear or any accidents at all. Since I have my own now, I can get comfortable with it.

I have been spending a fair amount of time playing a mundane but quite addictive game of Harvest Moon on the DS. Ask me why I play it and you will get no answer. Over the past few weeks, the Cheong household have been swamped with crime. CSIs, Bones, Numb3rs. Yup, Gilmore Girls are out. They have been given their due airtime and it's back to the shelves. I think, Star Wars is due for a season of airing too.

Most importantly, I have been spending time resting. I have been sleeping in a little later in the mornings. I don't feel so tired then but unfortunately, I also miss out on the extra time one gets when one wakes up earlier. *sigh* no win-win situation.

Ah, must not forget the few chow times. Sunny took me to Lemon Garden in Shangri-la for dinner. Scrumptious, complete with a chocolate fountain. Then there was the Raya open house at my ex-schoolmate's restaurant in Curve. This week, I had a gastronomical fill at Novotel, courtesy of Ju and Meng.  If I have put on weight, it's not my fault.

Things in the home front. David is busy at his, most probably, shortest semester. Alison is off from school already ( she wakes up even later than I ) Andrew has not been bitten by the Bond fever yet. At 1st glance,. the new Bond does not look Bond-ish enough. But we'll see. As for Wookie, he's taken to peeing at 'not approved' places and it's really trying. But when he looks at me with his 'puppy-dog' eyes......................................

Rehearsals for Word on the Street the Metro Christmas harvest production is in full swing. Meetings to plan them are even fuller. Not many more weeks to go. But everything is taking shape and form.

So that's it, my life in a nutshell, filled with cleaning, cooking, eating, playing..........erm, where's the working, you wonder. It's there, definitely. One of my staff's grandmother passed away the week before and I had to teach all the classes on top of mine. Mmmmmmmmm, no wonder I had to sleep in.
