It has been a very relaxing four day-break for me. Actually, my other household help, who's been with us for barely three months, left us without warning. Of course, it caused me a bit of stressful moments but I didn't want to ruin my vacation so I didn't dwell much on it. Stress leads to more wrinkles.
Four days of vacation led me to do these:
- Watch DVDs, and I realized that a movie with big named stars in it doesn't mean that the movie is good. *Old Dogs* and *From Paris with Love* both star John Travolta. Old Dogs is comedy and John's co-starring here with Robin Williams. From Paris with Love is an action film. Verdict: They're both corny! Incidentally, I watched these 2 movies one after the other, and Travolta's characters in both movies is named "Charlie." Can't american movie writers be creative enough???
- Read and finish the book "The Lost Symbol" by Dan Brown. I liked this much better than "The Da Vinci Code", just because it doesn't drastically change my religious beliefs. Actually after reading 'da vinci code' a few years ago, I resolved not to read any of his books again. But then I was able to watch the movie adaptation of his book "Angels and Demons" and it kinda changed my way of thinking towards him. So after finishing "The Lost Symbol", i have no regrets.
- Yesterday, I bought swimsuits for my 3 daughters. I didn't realize they have grown so big that the Speedos I bought them years ago don't fit them anymore. And yes, this left me with a big hole in my pocket.
- Hmm, what else did I do?... aha! eat... sleep... eat... sleep...
