It’s the end of the holidays, and I’m going to give u some updates (maybe not the latest) on this week’s events.. But before I start, let me say “Minal aidzin wal faidzin” for those who celebrates Idul Fitri.. Better late than never, hehee..

 

1. GP Singapore was held successfully for the first time last weekend, except for Massa who lost it all in the blink of an eye

2. Valentino Rossi locked his title for MotoGP World Champion, also last weekend, made him the only guy to ever win 8 world champion titles! (didn’t mean to write about racing sports, just happened to be the first 2 things that took place during the hols)

3. McCain showed up for debate, but didn’t get to watch it. Ok, this happened before the race, haha..

4. The vice presidential debate also took place, and Biden did slightly better, according to CNN Report Card

5. Indonesia had THE holidays of the year, which stopped all activities for a whole week

6. And of course, roads, trains, planes and ferries are still crowded because of the arus mudik and arus balik..

 

AND NOW.. update on my activities during the holz, this is what the title refers to, haha..

 

1. Farewell with Yuni, my roommate in Jakarta, who had finished her internship period, cu in sby yun..!

2. Spent the weekend in Ancol and Kelapa Gading with my family

3. Went to Bandung, also with my family, and the traffic was very cooperative.. Thank God!

4. Attended WW’s party on the second day of Idul Fitri

5. Met up and had dinner with some old friends, ISBS friends, PLC friends, had some good time with these guys..

6. Slept in almost every morning.. 🙂

 

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to go to the movies.. However, it was a great week compared to my previous expectation and I enjoyed it very much..! Certainly hope u had some great times too..!

Greetings from Gregory!

It’s the last day before we all start our lebaran holidays, at least for us in Indo, hehe..
What have u got in mind? Any interesting ways to spend the whole week while u are not at work or at school?
Most people go mudik to gather with families and friends for Idul Fitri, so they don’t really need a holiday plan. But people who are left behind in big cities, we have the whole week free, and we’re supposed to be able to do things we’ve been longing to do..
BUT..
Hmm.. can we? Do lebaran holidays really give us the chance to catch up with our favourite activities? Let’s see..

Getaway to ur favourite spot? No, too crowded..
Shopping? The city is half dead, stores mostly closed..
Exercise? Possible and very recommended!
Catch up on sleeping hours? Just don’t waste too much time, catching up doesn’t really work here..
Dance class? Hm.. I don’t know about this one, can anyone help?
Culinary activities? not a bad idea, maybe a bit limited though cause warongs aren’t usually opened during lebaran..

Well, whatever you want to do, just make sure that you have a great time! In the end, everything is nice when your loved ones are around.. Happy holidays everyone!
