I resumed work today, after almost a week's break since last Friday. Oh if I could only have more of it! But then again, there isn't much I could do when I'm not working. Running the marathon in Singapore was fun, minus the disappointing performance, of course, but once I came back to KK, what I did was mainly sleep and eat.
I don't really enjoy doing window shopping, so the malls are out. I could've gone for a short visit to, say, Kundasang where I could've watched the mountain which I've seen like a million times by now. Or perhaps I could've gone to one of the islands near KK. Now that would've been interesting, because it's been some years since the last time I went to any of the islands. They used to be quite fun, but the last time I went to Manukan, I thought it was too developed—it had lost its natural beauty as far as I am concerned.
It might be interesting to visit places like Danum Valley or some other jungle resorts in Sabah. I'm sure there are interesting things to see, such as the orang utans, Sumatran rhinos and the proboscis monkeys. But that requires a bit of planning. Besides, it would be more fun and economical to travel in a group with some friends.
The week prior to the Singapore trip, Mia went to the Mulu Resort in Sarawak. She took some nice pictures of the caves. That would be a good place to visit. Perhaps I'll get Karis, our newly-elected Sports Club President, to organise a trip next year.
Yesterday, I decided to spend my day in Centre Point. I went for a foot massage, had a zinger burger and some fries at KFC, bought Merry Madagascar and Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs DVDs for JJ, then had an ice cream followed by a chocolate shake at McDonalds. Oh! I also spent a little over 2 hours watching Twilight: New Moon, a pathetic film where most of them looked so damn sickly. I probably spent an accummulated 10 to 15 minutes' worth of window shopping, and confirmed yet again that I don't enjoy doing it.
More holidays around the corner during Christmas and New Year. I really must start making plans on how I'll spend my time, apart from getting stuck to this damn computer. With about 40 days of unused leave, I plan to have more short breaks next year...
Those of you from around KK, any bright ideas?
