Minggu #5

Week started slow with a confirmed flu bug at home. Aleeyah skipped school for 10 days to avoid getting hit by the flu bug ……to eventually contract it , within 2 days of being in school. And she was off again for 2 long weeks.


Renovating my bathroom has always been on my “to do” list for the past 3 years  ,and I can finally tell the procrastinator in me -I DID IT  .Twenty five days later ,together with an entire condo enveloped in dust and an almost perfect toilet ….we could finally move back into our little cocoon .Only to find out 48 hours later , there was a broken pipe behind those newly tiled walls that had leaked into the room beside and resulted in entire room of spoilt parquet.So Round 2, the hacking continues…..with Mahendra giving me the “bathroom didn’t need renovating in the first place” look.

One step forward in 2019 -After nearly a year of speaking about it parceled with my dislike of exercising  ,I finally managed to get my act together and had  Aruna take us on a tour of Gasing Hill.Twenty seven  years living in Gasing, I finally got to appreciate the beauty of what lies literally in my “backyard” .

And , here is proof that I actually hiked !!

It was a wet ,jammed Thursday evening, I arrived early before anybody else did at Gajaa at 8. Sneaked a quick drink before the rest turned up ….also ,so nobody would judge me. I ordered the whiskey sour , quite sure I was going to hate it but ordered it anyway because it was so strongly recommended by Aruna. And, really , it was bloody amazing. I even managed to sip it very slowly and save some for the rest to try .The food at Gajaa at 8 , nothing short of amazing. Kanthari fish is a must to order again , besides the whisky sour, of course.
