Aidilfitri 2011

Today it's the third day of Raya (Eid) and I've just had wayyyy too much meat the past three days. So dinner tonigh was seafood soup, salad and garlic bread from Porto Romano in TTDI. I'm not complaining though, the food has been great but everything in moderation, right?

We've had quite a few friends come over to visit and I'm really happy they enjoyed the food and company. It's tiring, but fun. It's times like these that we manage to see neighbours, friends and family that we haven't seen in ages. 

Today, I also sent off my maid back to her hometown in Medan, Indonesia for a three week holiday. It'll just be me and little H until she comes back. I'm extremely lucky that I'm not working, it's definitely extra hard for parents who work full-time. He's still on holiday for the next three days before school starts on Monday.

Starting next week, he'll be enrolled in three programmes in school meaning he'll have to sta back till 3pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays for Taekwondo, Maths and Speech & Drama respectively. I know, I know, I sound like one of those tiger mummies. But I've heard that Standard 1 (which he'll enter in 2013) is tough. I just want him to enter primary school with a bit of confidence and be able to keep up.
