Hurray! Holiday Break!


HURRAY! My holiday has finally arrived! We are going to Kuala Lumpur (my hubby's hometown) for a few days, and then moving north to Penang (my hometown). It is really a long break for me. I will be back to Singapore on 1 Jan 2009. Eat and sleep, sleep and eat....What kind of holiday can be better than this? Hahaha! I will disappear from this blog for a couple of days. Thank you so much for your support. Even on holiday, I will try to update my blog once I can get hold of a PC. Remember to drop by and check it out!

Before I end, let me share with you a song titled "Balik kampung" sung by the late Sudirman (a famous Malaysian singer). This song is about the excitement of a guy on his way back to his hometown. This is one of my favourite Malay songs. I love to sing this song (esp the chorus) whenever I am packing my luggage back home. When is your holiday coming? Busy packing too? Let sit back and enjoy this song.

Perjalanan jauh tak ku rasa
Kerna hati ku melonjak sama
Ingin berjumpa sanak saudara
Yang selalu bermain di mata

Nun menghijau gunung ladang dan rimba
Langit nan tinggi bertambah birunya
Deru angin turut sama berlagu
Semuanya bagaikan turut gembira

Balik kampung oh oh...( 3X )
Hati girang
Ho ho...
Balik kampung (3X)
Hati girang

Terbayang wajah-wajah yang ku sayang
Satu-satu tersemat di kalbu
Pasti terubat rindu di hati
Menyambut kepulangan ku nanti

Have a happy and safe trip. I know how exciting it is, a nice change from the too familiar is always wonderful. Happy Holidays to you too. Been trying to get everything done for Christmas but time is running out.

I remember the car trips we used to make every school holidays to visit my Gong & Po in KL, and then up to Ipoh to visit my Grandpa & Grandma... thank goodness for the new highway system! It used to take us 6 hours from Woodlands check point to KL and along the way have to try and over take lorries and avoid speeding motorbikes! Now you have to watch out for Kancil flashing behind you while tailgating!

Gosh those were good times! Have a safe trip and look forward to your next post!

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
