Time has flies and I still have tones of thing need to do before travel. Did I mentioned that I need to bring some stuff to New Zealand? I am going to participate in some local Bazaar in Wellington, and stock need to be ready before I fly too because right away day after I came back I need to put up some stock at Penang. LAPAN are going to have our own corner at China House souvenir shop:)

I am immune with the loads of job even though I am not quite sure if I be able to manage. It sure will get through, it's either I manage it well or half cook.  So I gonna take it easy:)

On top of that I have few other plans like going back to hometown during weekend, 2 day spending time at Bagan Lalang, visit my dentist, plus few custom order like 20 soft toys, 3 Our Adventure Books and 2 guest books…mmmm, I will breath deeply & just smile:)

and in between, I send Syamil & Arissa for mengaji too…

Smile every chance you get. Not because life has been easy, perfect, or exactly as you had anticipated, but because you choose to be happy and grateful for all the good things you do have and all the problems you know you don’t have.
Lot's of love //syam
