Hi. Last weekend was a bit if a mix, with an extremely busy Saturday of 7 events and a free Sunday with the family.

Firstly, on Friday night, I went to the October Cheers event where I had some great bratwurst. The event was good clean fun with live bands. Then on Saturday morning, I started the day at 8am with a gotong royong in USJ6, which was attended by around 10 Indonesian students from Taylor’s College (lakeside). Then it was to MPSJ to celebrate the International Day for Older Persons with around 150 senior citizens. After that I went to USJ4 for a family day event. Then to USJ2 for a Voluntary Patrol Unit event where the organisation launched two new patrol cars.

In the evening, I went to Laman Sukan USJ1 Hokkien Association Lantern Festival event to distribute free moon cakes at around 6 pm. Then I went to SS19 Subang Jaya for a lantern festival gathering, where I met my old friend Razeek. I first met Razeek in 1997, on a trekking expedition to Pakistan and Afghanistan. After that I went to the USJ 13 family day where we did a lantern festival walkabout before returning back to Laman Sukan USJ 1 around 10 pm, ending the day at 11pm . It was an incredibly long day for Hannah Yeoh and I.

The good thing is that on Sunday, I got to spend the entire day with my family. The kids and I did bird watching, butterfly catching, badminton, chess, memory games and swimming. We even walked to our neighbourhood mall to drop my work shoes to the cobbler.

After the kids went to bed at 8 pm, my wife and I went to the movies and saw Blade Runner 2049. This is an amazing movie and it is the best movie I have seen this year! It is very long (almost 3 hours), slow burning but exquisitely and faithfully told. It is such a thoughtful sequel. A must see for all Blade Runner fans. And I didn’t even fall asleep at all, not for a single second!
