Worked my a** off today

I should be in bed right now and not blogging.

Work has been very busy lately. Wonder why there are so many sick people around, or maybe they are just sooky lalas that need to get something even just for a tiny headache. Or perhaps it is fullmoon. Yep, full moon does funny things to some people, and we do get strange customers coming in. Lunatic is not coined for nothing. Comes from the word lunar. Then again, it is still the month of Hungry Ghost Festival, not that the angmohs know anything about it :P

I wish my colleagues good luck tomorrow night, as there is eclipse as well. Let's hope there will be no howling in the store.

So, last night has been busy. Then I had to get up early this morning to send Aidan off to kindy. Wilkin had a day off. It was for the appointment with the accountant, but he managed to get there last Saturday. Our friend happily spent the morning at the gym. As for me, my wish came true. My lazybone awakes and I went on a cleaning spree at home. From curtains to floors, nothing was spared.

Had only cleaned halfway when it was time to pick Aidan up. The three of us went yumchar, ladida, and when we got home, I started cleaning the second half. Our friend? Goyang kaki lar. I have to say he helped when I asked him to, plus some backyard work. But in the house, while I was slaving away, he was happily singing to the tunes of Dim Sum Girl. I swatted his head saying 'Dim Sum Girl. So free arr?' and he pinched my backside. Dirty old man.

I was up to my neck with cleaning when the vacuum knocked off a pile of paper on the table and went flying on to the floor. With hands on my hips, I sighed, trying hard not to scream. Then our friend hor, said this,

and told Aidan 'Aidan, quickly do this!' and covered his ears with both hands. Little rascal thought it was a game and followed lar. It was quite funny actually so I said 'What, you sit there so free do nothing!' Cilakak.


Must be the full moon. It did funny things to me. I cleaned my house, and I cleared the store room at work earlier tonight. It was a total mess, a job nobody dared to do, hah! By the end of the night, I must have done cleaning enough to last me a month!
