M for Monday

I got up early today to have breakfast with my parents and Adam, my youngest brother.

(Yes, 9am is really early for someone who normally only wakes up around noon.)

It reminded me of how my parents used to take all of us out for breakfast every Sunday morning when we were kids. Oh those good ol' days of simple pleasures!

Stopped by the pharmacy to pick up a few things for Adam before mum and I took the maid to the hair salon. We had a little mother-daughter bonding time over drinks while waiting for the maid to get her haircut. ^_^

I was ready for a nap when we got back, but there were contractors moving around the house servicing our air-conditioners. I was so sleepy that I was dozing off in front on my laptop, and I must have fallen asleep the minute they left my room.

A growling stomach woke me up after many hours and reminded me that I had missed lunch. It's a good thing that we have dinners real early at home. Our standard dinner time is around 5.30pm! Haha.

So here I am, typing this pretty much pointless entry while greedily sniffing the delicious smell of food in the air. Hmmm, mum's original roast pork ribs and my favourite turnip soup!

Doreen & Iamthewitch: So it seems like breakfast on Sundays is a common practice for Malaysian families huh? Haha. It's often these little things or family routines that we miss when we think of our childhood, innit? :)

Sdovelly: Absence makes the heart grows fonder huh? Haha. It's gonna make you treasure your time with family even more when you're back, so try to enjoy yourself to the fullest while you're there. ^_^

Lila: Awww..... *Hugs* :)
