Changes Abound

Following the passing of my Dad, we felt that we could do with an extra bedroom just in case our parents came for a visit and staying overnight. We already had our main bedroom, and one room each for Idlan and Irfan. The other bedroom was used as our study.

Time for a change. Out went the big table, and in came a king-sized bed!

The new bed is in ...It had to be done in stages. The wallpapers were sorted, the curtains would come later in the week and the bathroom attached to this room needed some fixing due to a recent leak. But on the whole, the room is now useable, and Anita had given a hint that I had to take her for some furniture shopping. Guess I’d see how long I could ignore her ....

Heavy Downpour

This is the stuff of nightmare during Ramadan. Late afternoon rain and flash flooding. That was what exactly we had this afternoon.

Anita was stuck at Bangsar Village buying groceries and food for berbuka. She was not able to get into the car and had to wait in the mall. When the rain finally let, the traffic were building up. It took her half an hour to get back to the apartment which was only less than a couple of kilometres away. Such was how bad the traffic was.

I was lucky since I was able to get out of the hospital early although I got stuck in heavy rain along the highway. It could have been worse ...

Shimmering

It was a gorgeous Saturday morning as I ambled my way from bed to get ready for the Saturday morning clinic. I have just returned from Singapore the evening before and could do with a lie in. But this was a Saturday and it would be a riot in store if I start my clinic late.

As I munch through my breakfast, I saw some warm sunshine peeking through the curtains. Got my phone out, and I was blessed with such shimmering sunrise ...

Amazing how even a simple smartphone - a P10 Plus mind you - could capture such beauty ....

A Night In

Finally done with my 3 calls in a week. Time to look forward to some rest and a spot of traveling.

The shift today ended longer than expected having to drive across town to Park City for a referral. By the time I was done, with the traffic jam and all, it was already late afternoon. Anita had been out with her friends to watch the movie all afternoon. I had the apartment to myself.

Done with some paperwork as well as going through some thesis to assess. Caught up with news - with the US threatening to go to war. Wrote this entry, and hopefully it would be time for bed soon ...

More Ammo

Anita’s friend, Saja had become somebody of a green fingers and over the previous few weeks had been encouraging Anita to do a bit more gardening.

Last weekend, she gave Anita some plants for our balcony. I expected more ammunition to come in the future ....
