A Long Break this Christmas

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

Last week, my company announced a year-end shutdown for 2 weeks from 22 Dec 08 till 2 Jan 09. I was completely over the moon when I heard of the news. Finally, I can take a super long break this Christmas.

This is part of their cost-savings initiative due to the current economic downturn. Many technology companies are conducting shutdown or skeleton workforce to cut down their expenses. So, this isn’t a big surprise to me.

Well, I need to make good use of these 2 weeks. I can’t go on a vacation as my husband needs to work during this period. So, what else can I do? I have this on my list:
1. Make a trip to my hometown and spend some quality time with my parents
But, I’m still not confident to travel to Malaysia alone with Edison (even if I can bring my helper along).

2. Invite my parents and my newly-wed sister and bro-in-law to Singapore
They can enjoy the festive Christmas celebrations here.

3. Clean my house, esp. the store room, my shoes, old clothings, old toys etc.

4. Go for slimming! I bought a slimming package last year (bought on impulse again!).
Only attended 2 sessions, left with 8. So, I should complete all the treatments now.

What else? I still have 4 weeks to plan for this shutdown. If you have any good suggestions for me, pls do leave me a comment. Thanks!
