24.09.2010 | 閑情一日

通常過年過節, 我都唔會好似大部份人咁一窩蜂請假.. 反而我鐘意平日無啦啦請一日假, 唔係為咗咩特別節目, 而係想好好咁享受一日嘅清閑.. 當世界正在忙碌嘅時候, 唯我可以暫且放慢步伐, 確實係一大樂事也..

例如自己一個人靜坐咖啡室內, 喺完全不受干擾嘅情況之下, 嘆杯熱茶食件蛋糕, 再加一本書消磨整個下晝.. 如是悠閑嘅生活, 邊個(闊太少奶奶除外)話唔係人生一大高尚享受呢??
i don't usually take leaves during festive seasons like many out there do, instead i like to sparingly take a day off on a normal day, not for any planned trip or running errands, but just for the sake of enjoying a no-string-attached day.. when the whole world is busy but i can slow down my pace and watch the word spins, this is considered something blissful to myself..

for instance, have myself sitting alone in a cafe, under a totally relaxing ambience sipping a cup of hot tea and eating a slice of cake, reading a book to kill a whole afternoon's time.. who (excluding posh-class housewives) wouldn't say this is some kind of luxury lifestyle??

  14. 以前讀MBA時忙慣,太過輕鬆既話會內疚。。。

  16. 關於你系我幾post問既問題:我系最後第二段已經解釋咗。有幾種方法:
    第一:望向光處;第二:開flash(尼個最簡單);第三:用白色物體反射光入眼。

  17. let me guess, secret recipe? hehe...yeap, it's a luxury for me as well to read a book while taking sips of tea and tasting the CHEESE cake occasionally. i like that, peaceful and quiet day, or days. hehe...have you tried doing that by the beach? hehe...

    ReplyDelete

  23. hahahha.. i'm not a posh-class housewive but am a jobless housewife sipping her glass of iced-milo and eating a slice of bread, reading blogs to kill a whole day's time :P

    so not as glamorous as YOU :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. That cake looks nice! Yum!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes, I also love this kind of relaxing time by myself - just sitting down in a cafe with a book, iPhone and a cup of coffee and a piece of cake. Heavenly!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I prefer leisure without the book - just sipping a hot drink with a snack and just sit back and watch the world go by at a seat with a view, something like the one at KLCC Kino's cafe. Bliss..

    ReplyDelete
  27. 哈哈……真的很享受哦!太赞了!:)

    但不是人人都可以这样的。所谓手停口停!唉~

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't like taking leave for no reasons...except I did so during the recent Merdeka week coz I didn't want to go to work and then it's holiday and then off to work again. I want a stretch of weekend off! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. For a while thought I went into Cleffairy's blog "Over a Cuppa Tea" haha..

    ReplyDelete
  30. Don't normally sit around reading books in cafe sipping kopi or tea on purpose but while waiting for friends or on biz would grab any mag or clear my messages in my handphone. Cannot sit still doing nothing need mess with my eyes and fingers..haha.

    ReplyDelete
  31. @ suituapui:
    yeah, that's why i like to take a day off occassionally, not for any special reason but just to have a day to relax myself from the bustling work.. :)

    @ Legolas:
    hehe, i think you should do that so that you can take a breather from your stress and tension..

    ReplyDelete
  32. @ 单身汉:
    哈哈, 當然啦, 平時工作咁辛苦, 有時梗係要好好咁愛惜下自己架嘛~~ :)

    @ smallkucing:
    haha, but when you are off, you sure won't be alone to really relax yourself right?? sure got smallkucing following mamarazzi along.. kekeke~~ :p

    ReplyDelete
  33. @ Caroline Ng May Ling:
    haha, actually the purpose of taking one whole day and not just half day is that, we want to be able to sleep till noon (that's half day gone already), and then only do something relaxing for the rest of the day.. right?? very posh lifestyle right?? afternoon tea reading a book~~ :D

    @ wenn:
    haha, yeah?? give me five!! i think this is one kind of the best way to pamper ourselves.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. @ edward:
    哈哈, 梗係啦!! 不過你會羨慕咁樣嘅生活咩?? 我仲以為你係個超級工作狂, 一的閑落嚟就週身唔聚財添~~ :D

    @ Medie007:
    hmmm but for me, i won't sleep till too late.. it's my precious leave, so i'd make sure i don't simply waste that.. for sleeping, weekends will do lah..

    ReplyDelete
  35. @ khengsiong:
    不過我覺得半日又好似到喉唔到頸喎, 你成日請半日假, 好易被誤會你去interview架喎, 哈哈!! 嘩, 原來要搞咁多花臣架?? 我係一個對攝影毫無知識嘅普通人咋, 係唔係話日光日白都開flash, 叫個model一定要望鏡頭, 咁就有所謂嘅eyelight呢??

    @ venus:
    對啊, 真的是叫做偷得浮生一日閑呀!! 哈哈, 不過你是當老師的, 很難可以這樣吧?? :p

    ReplyDelete
  36. @ Gabriel:
    haha, yeah, you are so smart huh?? exactly is secret recipe.. you always parton the place?? hmmm, actually this is the very first time i ever bring a book and purposely read that over a cup of tea and a piece of cake.. i like that, feel such a poshly lifestyle, hahaha!! hmmm, by the beach, not a bad idea also eih??

    @ Kelvin:
    hehe, yes!! and i always do that.. for instance, when everyone is enjoying their CNY leave, i go back to work.. and when everyone is picking up business during normal days, i go on leave.. :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. @ nons:
    哈哈, 係啊係啊!! 其實我都係第一次咋, 咁高尚嘅lifestyle我想話一世人總要有一次啩?? :p

    @ iamthewitch:
    haha, you've been travelling so frequent and i sure guess you don't have many leaves left right?? haha, i purposely hide the labels on the plates and cup lah.. you can't recognise that's from S*c**t R*c**e meh?? :p

    ReplyDelete
  38. @ mNhL:
    errr, yeah.. i was enjoying the book over the cup of tea and piece of cake, and i just didn't realise how fast time has passed.. but i really enjoy that a lot..

    @ -KeO-:
    haha, of course we must sometimes pamper ourselves with nice luxury lifestyle right?? you can also do that lah.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. @ Merryn:
    hahahaha, not as glamorous but still got lifestyle with your blog-reading over a cup of milo and slice of bread!! you also know how to enjoy woh~~ :)

    @ foongpc:
    yeah, not bad at all it tasted.. haha, i think you definitely have the flexibility to do that, so that might not be as precious to you compare to me who works routinely 9-6 everyday.. indeed i gotta agree with you, it's heavenly!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. @ HappySurfer:
    haha, that's a good idea too to just watch the world goes around.. maybe it's because i have been reading quite frequently, so i can't let my book set aside without finish reading them quickly.. oh, another place i like is the starbucks in borders at the gardens.. it's like a secret place and very quite if you really need you time in there..

    @ 穷光蛋市长:
    哈哈, 有時就是要這樣來疼愛自己一下的嘛.. 甚麼手停口停啊?? 這都是年假, 是公司給的福利啊, 沒有扣人工的~~ :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. @ Mei Teng:
    haha, i don't do that always.. just sometimes when i think i need a breather from work, i will take a day off, and normally it will be a Monday.. i actually like the quietness of everywhere during working hours, and you're all there watching the world spins.. nice experience actuall.. :)

    @ Bananazஇ:
    haha, so i am starting to become quite posh already yeah?? with some lifestyle, haha~~ actually this is my first time doing something like this, i just want to have a feel of how this can be.. i don't normally carry books with me lah, like you say, most of the time just sitting there playing with handphone lor.. :p

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  47. Ooh, "the starbucks in borders at the gardens."? Sounds just like Fox Books in "You've Got Mail". Got the same feel or not? haha..

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  55. 我都像这样咯!可是电话还是会响个不停,之前已经试过了~

    ReplyDelete
  56. wow cheesecake!!!! LIKE :) but i prefer tofu cheesecake :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. @ reanaclaire:
    yeah, indeed!! when everyone's busy and you're off for the day, it could be a really relaxing day - provided nobody calls you on your phone, haha!! :D

    @ Twilight:
    errr, since when?? Thamby is always so smart one mah, i always do that, just take a day off for no reason and enjoy my day off, haha!! haiz, Arumugam you don't know Thamby well.. Thamby has 2 personalities - one Tamil and one English mah.. so this one is showing his English personality, that's why it's tea + cheesecake + english book!! next time lah, next time i'll blog about goat's milk with poppy seed, mutton curry chapati and tamil nadri magazine wokay?? :D

    ReplyDelete
  58. @ 海市蜃樓:
    係啊, 我朝早去商場, 嘩, 見到成間商場水靜河飛咁, 好似一股豁然開朗嘅感覺, 我覺得好開心囉..

    @ HappySurfer:
    hahaha, really?? i don't remember that dialogue actually.. but i can tell you, if you want a quiet place on your own, that will be an absolutely perfect place to spend your time.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. @ 保祐我:
    哈哈, 一次過拿五天假期?? 不會囉, 除非真的要去哪裡玩.. 五天太長了, 甚麼都不做反而會覺得悶, 而且整個人會懶惰起來的..

    Wois:
    hehe, go go go and buy a piece and stuff your mouth lah.. from S*c**t R*c**e one.. :D

    ReplyDelete
  60. @ 安东尼:
    haha, errr, dreaming?? but i thot you can do that anytime since you're still studying and have lots of flexible time.. hmmm, better do that before you started to work and won't have time for it later.. haha!! :D

    @ victor:
    yeah, the cheesecake was not bad at all but i was more enjoyable with the feeling of relaxing myself over the cup of tea.. haha, posh lifestyle?? hmmm, maybe you are right huh.. just see how impossible for us to actually have time for this during days when we are so busy and tied up with work..

    ReplyDelete
  61. @ 发白日梦^^:
    哈哈, 你在公司是很重要的人嘛.. 不過我真的不喜歡on leave有人找我, 而且我也不喜歡人家on leave去找人的囉.. 如果你是聯放假都不能夠have a peace of mind的話, 那倒不如上班去, 不要浪費你的leave嘛, 對不??

    @ fufu:
    errr, to me any kind of CAKE is just nice!! because i just love to eat cakes, hahaha~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  62. Ouh....sounds just like me bro. Sometimes I have off days when others are frantically working. :p

    ReplyDelete
  63. For me I love to enjoy the ambiance in a mamak stall enjoying my roti canai and teh tarik. :p

    ReplyDelete
  64. wew whatta nice way to relax after a week of hard work

    ReplyDelete
  65. have a great blogging to you sk

    ReplyDelete
  66. LOL my Thamby SK! You always tickle my ribs!

    ReplyDelete
  67. 我也喜欢这样子啊。
    一杯热可可,一块饼,一本好书,一张舒服的座椅= 一个慵懒又写意的午后。

    ReplyDelete
  68. 现在的城市人都很会这样的享受。
    我也一个人喜欢这样坐久久,
    追看我爱看的长篇小说。
    不过我不爱喝茶,又不想给高消费,
    所以会选较便宜的地方。

    ReplyDelete
  69. Me too enjoy taking a day's off when everyone else is working...:-)

    ReplyDelete
  70. @ Tekkaus:
    haha, yeah, isn't that nice to get a break when everybody elses are frantically working like hell?? kekeke.. hmmm, mamak not as comfortable as cafe mah.. anyway, that's my very first time reading over a cup of tea in cafe also, just want to have an experience, haha..

    @ poorprince:
    yeah, that's certainly something very enjoyable.. nice cup of tea, nice piece of cake and nice book.. that's heaven~~ :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. @ Twilight:
    hmmm, so Arumugam wanna try that someday together with Thamby?? i can give you extra poppy seed for your goat's milk and extra curry for the chapati~~

    @ imyuyu:
    尤其是當其他人都忙碌著工作, 你就靜靜坐在那裡享受一片的寧靜, 其實光看著世界在轉動也是蠻不錯的一種享受哦.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. @ Ashley:
    其實我也是第一次這樣"高尚"喇, 因為從來沒有這樣, 所以要感覺以下那種"少奶奶喝下午茶"的感覺, 哈哈!! 其實很不錯哦, 但是不能常常這樣啦, 負擔不起哦~~ 以後可能在家裡DIY這"高尚"的lifestyle吧 :p

    @ Grass:
    yeah, it's something relaxing and enjoyable indeed, provided that there's nobody calling you from the office.. haha!! :D

  78. that's a good way of treating yourself, a little similar to how me and baby do things like a stroll in the park or a little shopping

    ReplyDelete
  79. a fun tradition, keep going!

    ReplyDelete
  80. @ 小雪:
    其實有時請假一天, 甚麼都不做, 懶洋洋的休息一下, 我覺得是很不錯的.. :)

    @ Donna:
    haha, yalah, i still got many days of leave so must start to clear off some lor.. hmmm, normally i won't take leave during festive or long weekends, when everyone's holidaying then i go to wok and vice versa, haha!! not surprising lor, many people take leave to go shopping one, i think this is fine for me, because we just need to relax and have a breather from work right??

    @ Ayie:
    haha, yeah, it's nice to be able to keep yourself relax and rest your mind.. i think we really need such breather from everyday hectic work right?? :)
