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. P.S. The nasi lemak looks good!

  17. excerpt from *Footprints in the Sand*...

    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

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
