X-mas Thanks

Great way to start my year-end holidays – with an excruciating whopping headache which lasted for 24 hours, meaning that I spent most of Christmas eve tossing and turning in bed fitfully, trying to sleep off a hangover which, unfortunately, is not even due to excess boozing/ partying, coz I never did make it for the countdown at midnight.

Nevertheless, I am in no position to complain about this little glitch when there are so many other things to be thankful for:

  • FIL is up and cheerful, walking and talking – and if he could have his way, probably driving around and painting Kuching town a bright scarlet red too!!…if I had not known better, I wouldn’t have believed that this was the man who, after a triple by-pass, was struggling to breathe in the CICU barely a month ago. 5 kgs lighter, he is looking even younger and in better spirits than before.
  • Hubby was one of the lucky ones who managed to squeeze himself on a flight home on Sat night, despite many others stranded at the airport, who have for the last 4-5 days, patiently waited for the stand-by lists to be read, fingers crossed that hopefully the next name announced would mean a quick joyous reunification with their families in time for Christmas
  • Family in Penang is well and happy, and so far, floods-free unlike the poor folks in Melaka and Johor – am looking forward to the trip back home on the 29th, after this trip in Kuching
  • Renewal of friendships, which have shamefully been neglected in the hustle and bustle of the rat race in KL
  • And I woke up bright and cheery this morning, ready to enjoy the rest of my glorious day-offs ahead *grin*

Certainly, life is good!
