We had an unexpected day off in KL because our “dear” Prime Minister decided that we have been working too hard since the year began, and also because someone told him the roads in KL would be so clogged with pilgrims due to it being Thaipusam. So, he kindly declared on a Sunday night, that today would be a public holiday for KL – hurrah! Never mind of course that I had meetings lined up for today or that factories and tradesmen would be affected.
Nevertheless, it was a public holiday which means a lie-in. Sweet!
Later in the evening, I went for a much needed haircut. The Lawrence of Arabia look is so passe dah-link! So upon my hairdressers advise, I hacked off my hair into a short-ish bob. No Posh Bob cut for me… no no… I don’t have the Posh elfin look to carry it off. Hair colour is perfectly natural if anyone’s wondering – yay for saving money on colouring hair! But when I MMS-ed my new cut to sis, her response was “S***! You look about sixteen!” Is that a compliment?
And thanks to Giddy Tiger for introducing me to Photofiltre, I created a new header for my site! So pretty… so ong… so Chinese New Year! dong dong chiang! Successful mods to my theme was all thanks to Kristarella’s wonderfully lucid instructions. She truly is inspirational!
And that was how I spent my day off. All in all, a truly productive day! Oh incidentally, the roads were as clear as if it was Chinese New Year already. Rats could have partied on the streets without fear of being run over – so much for justifying a day off!
Good night Diary.
