Weekend Activities

Tuesday. Last day of the 4-day weekend we are enjoying because of Maulud Nabi and Thaipusam holiday. 

We didn't go anywhere and plan a trip. Didn't go back to my hometown either, just relaxing at home and being totally lazy.

So what did my 9-year old was up to during the holiday? Nothing much but he kept himself busy with:

Indoor activities
Playing board games. I got coerced into playing snakes & ladders with him. This is the 3D version. As usual when playing games with that boy of mine, there would be a little bit of argument while playing. All for fun though.
He spent time colouring too - not any old thing. He likes colouring super heroes. He's a boy, after all. That's Go Onjer that he was colouring.
And playing with his toy and games collection - that's the Gokaijers he got there, and Kamen Rider Fourze figures at the back. And oh! An Ultraman jigsaw puzzle too. Plenty of things to keep him occupied at home and not get bored even when being cooped inside. Pity reading is not high in his fun thing to do, though.

Then of course, he keeps himself occupied staring at his netbook screen and being online.
After having fun playing, it's time to sit down and study too! On weekends, we set 4.00pm onwards (until he finished everything that I told him to study/do) for study time. There's an ulterior motive setting it at 4.00pm. It's Mommy's time to control the remote. There are Korean shows that Mommy like at that time on Saturday and Sunday and when Son is studying, Mommy gets to watch TV without interruption.

Outdoor activities
Played a bit of badminton with him at the apartment's playground. He totally dissed my badminton playing skill. Huhuhu 
He's a bit self-conscious playing badminton at the playground and he wanted to stopped when a few kids came to play there. Regardless, I'm just happy he wants to be out of the house.
He had a swim too (OK, make it two swims). I don't really like swimming so when it comes to visiting the pool, Raimie goes with his Daddy. But that said, after a run under the hot sun, a dip in the pool is sure nice. And it's a good way to cross-train. ^^

Then, it's time to go cycling. The initial plan was to go on Sunday. I actually changed my planned 13K run on Sunday earlier and did it on Friday to clear Sunday for Son. But turns out everyone woke up late on Sunday! So turns out Tuesday cycling it was, after I did my scheduled 10K run.

What is not high on our list of activities during weekends? Hitting the malls. Oh! I really do hate going to malls on weekends. Mall crowds gives me a headache.

Back to work tomorrow and no more public holidays until May! Ugh.

    1. Us three don't really like to visit the pool once it gets crowded people. So, usually its either early morning swim or early morning run and in case of this week, + cycling.

      But I should go swimming. Haven't been swimming in ages. Need to work other muscle parts too. (Haven't been doing much weights or core exercises too these days) Lazy...

      Delete
    2. p.s doing a triathlon would be like so... AWSESOME! But lemme try and finish running 10K without feeling like dying first. LOL

      Delete
  10. I might have done similar things! I would stay at home most of the time playing with my games that I had. I would also go out cycling. Get some ice cream from the local vendors. I would probably blog hehehe. I would not swim, though, only because I would be too lazy to drive to the pool :p. I would not run either because I'm not used to running yet. I would ummm use the internet :p

    But, I would enjoy the long weekend! :)

    Oh, over crowded malls do suck! I agree!

    1. You do plenty. :)

      Yeah, crowded malls sucks. I'd rather be out in the park than being in a crowded mall.

    2. Ooh what about being in a park in a big mall? :p :p

      Delete
    3. Park has fresh air. Malls has circulated air. xD

    4. Ahahah true! The mall's air is filtered though ;p

  14. That's why I panicked when I was thrown (OK I jumped in myself) into the deep blue sea at Redang to do some snorkeling last year. Will post about this soon right after I finished my Cambodia posts, which will be pretty soon, as soon as I am done with the feng shui posts LOL!

  18. I'm now following your example and hijacking a post with totally irrelevant information! Muekeke! :D

    I don't know what Malaysians think of Dr Mahathir Mohamad, but when I read this article, I felt like cheering. It's about time Asia told Europe what's what!!!

    Was he popular and respected?

    1. He is known for being an outspoken critic towards the West. And he initiated the "Dasar Pandang ke Timur" or Look East Policy which is to emulate the work ethics of Japanese and South Korean (but more towards Japan, in my opinion).

      He is a controversial figure. Some people love him and some not. But for me, I think Malaysia did well under his leadership. Much better than the current government which seem hellbent in bankrupting the country. :(

      Do you know he blogs too? Google Chedet.cc

      p.s. You sure are good at using laughter sounds now. kuikuikui

  19. Thanks for telling me about that blog! I'm tired of reading Western opinions about Asia (and Africa). Reverse direction, please!

    Kuikuikui? Hihihi! :D
