Curiosity got the better of me. After a year of the same template, my itchy fingers was dying to try something new. And after a bit of fiddling around, a new look. What do you think?
Still dont know how to add in colour to the sidebar boxes though. Css is wierd.
Anyway, had a lovely and relaxing week from Hari Raya, spending time and get togethers with families.
Hari Raya is a day for forgiveness and the strengthening of bonds. Start afresh. Start anew.
Feels a little different this year though. Ketupats seem to be rarer to be seen these days and lontong pieces doesnt seem to be as soft as before.

Okay I admit it, I dont know how to weave a ketupat. My aunt tried to teach me, when I was a little girl. But the only thing I managed to weave is my fingers. It was so hard! So according to Malay sayings, I’ll never get married :/
But I remember helping mum make lontongs till after a while, she got busy and now, we just buy the factory made ones. It doesnt taste the same though. Now I dont really have the mood to eat them anymore.
This article from the Sunday times newspaper caught my eye.
It says that by taking 9 days leave, we could have 43 days of rest. Quite impressive. Having more rest days is always a good thing 🙂
