Balik Kampung

Starting tomorrow I am sure 90% of the Malay population in the office will already be on leave for Raya. Some of us even started to be on leave since last Saturday. For those who are still working on Thursday, high chance that their hometown is just a half an hour drive from their office. For those who can't take leave and have to work on Friday, enjoy the double or triple pay.

Towards the end of Ramadhan people are getting busy preparing to celebrate Syawal. The month when I am expected to gain back the 4 kilos I lost so far this Ramadhan. Some will be busy with the baju raya, some with their kuih raya and some will be busy with duit Raya. From what I've heard, Maybank is out of new RM1 notes. So if you haven't done the ringgit domination exchange yet, high chance you are going to get recycled old notes.

For those who missed the controversial TV3 Raya advertisement, you could always catch it in YouTube. This year there have been rumors flying around that Hari Raya will fall on Thursday, contrary with the date printed in all the Malaysian calender. Anyway just wait for the announcement tomorrow night.

As for my Hari Raya preparation, I've replaced all 4 tyres on the Vios. That alone cost me RM1000 together with balancing, alignment, replacement of camber screw and fill them up with nitrogen. Both the left and right drive shafts are replaced; damage = RM400.

For the house, we got ourselves a new 2-seater sofa from Fella Design. Ribu riban jugak habis tu..

Well this are all expected anyway. If there is no Hari Raya, we might not bother to change the tyres or get a new sofa.

Lastly if I don't make it to post another entry in time for Hari Raya, I would like to wish all of you Selamat Hari Raya and Maaf Zahir & Batin from the whole rumetqz family. For those who are driving back to the hometown, please drive carefully. The Undertaker would like to celebrate Raya in peace too....
