Monday, November 3, 2008 -- Today is mom's birthday. We're having family dinner. Some very close relatives are coming, too. Like our typical manadonese b'day dinner, there's always super hot & spicy food. We even have mango and chocolate pudding for dessert. The only thing that we don't have this time is a birthday cake. Mom said it's a waste of money when we already have much food served on the table. That's my mom! :) She would prefer spending the money for daily needs to something like a birthday cake on her birthday. Happy Birthday, Mom!

What a morning!

I'm back to Surabaya again. I was planning to call in sick (though i'm not), but I'm 'too' responsible to do it. I'm feeling exhausted and sleepy after a long trip back from Bali to Surabaya. What's ironic is my manager texted me when I just got in and put my bags. He asked me to handle his classes 2day while I actually have my own. Great!!! "I've got to meet somebody at another school unit," he said. He could've chosen another day. He knows that we're out of teachers, but he's doing it again. Yeah right! What a perfect way to start a long work day.
