Along with several trips home and to Malacca, hanging out with loved ones, cultivating thunder thighs and a J-Lo butt, as well as bowling (my new record is 155), all the above sums up what I’ve been up to for the past two months or so during my stint as salah satu daripada statistik pengangguran negara. Anyway, the holidays are coming to an end and I am really looking forward to start work on Monday!!
