5S On Good Friday

Today is Good Friday.... yes, it is a working day for me... no public holiday on a Good Friday in Malaysia...(correction, only no holiday in Penisular)

Anyway, it was a Fun day for us in the office cos on this day, we officiate the 5 S - er.... something to do with the Japanese slogan... don't ask me what the 5 "S" stands for... try googling it, okay?

To achieve this 5S, all the staff had to lend a helping hand... sort of contributing our "manpower" and labour to the office ... after the official launching, we were given some tasks to do... some prefer to be gardeners, sweepers and I... I opted to become a Pavement Painter.... heheee....

believe it or not....
me painting the slabs.. no joke, huh!

serious one, no play-play....

ok, one picture to remember us as Painters!

after an hour sweat..we waited for free food.. hehee..

while waiting, Elin went posing... hahaha..

ahhh... what was served?

a plate of nasi lemak!!

After a heavy breakfast, we went back to rest in the office...
During lunch break, Elin and I wanted to go to the market...
On the way to the parking lot....
in the midst of our conversation...
we forgot about the wet paint... sigh...

Guess whose footwear that was????

Gosh!! Another one here...
Both of us didn't realise it until we felt something wet
when we stepped on them!!
shhhhh.... hope the boss won't find out!!! LOL....


  1. Cute post, Claire... I would do all of the 'pavement painting' for a delicious meal like that. YUM...

    Happy Good Friday to you --and Happy Easter.

  2. Happy Good Friday Claire! Looks like a meaningful day to you..

  3. It's a public holiday for us here in Sabah on Good Friday, make it easier for us to go to church as the masses are at 3pm for most churches. We suppose to have light meals for the day, but it's entirely up to the individuals.

    It's good to leave some foot marks for what you have done, for rememberance :D

  4. Happy Easter! Well, contributing socially..that's great!

  5. like cinderalla leaving her shoes behind...

  6. can i send this permalink to ur boss? hahahhaha.. then i can get a plate of nasi lemak too :P

  7. wow.. you did your 5S on a Good Friday. We also need to 5S our office cubicle every Friday. dun worry about the marks, sometimes it's good to leave our footprints behind also mar ^^ HAVE A BLESSED EASTER WEEKEND ;)

  8. This is hilarious!! My Claire painting on Good Friday! And then going and stepping in it!!! I did that once when I was a kid, my mom had warned me, and I got footprints all over the back porch. Now, how much would you charge to come and paint my house??

  9. Correction: Good Friday is a public holiday in Sarawak. Yeah!!!!! Some schools here even take Easter Monday off.

  10. Claire, how could you do that? You steped on your own hard work. Oh My!

    The Lord replied,
    “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints,
    my child, is when I carried you.”

    Happy Easter!

    Since you already left footprints, should have added some handprints on it as well!. Haha
