|Last laundry of the trip?|
So, got up and started laundry as usual and then napped while the program went through its cycle, and then Y and R came over with Mee Siam (Thai noodles, the Kuching version), mee jawa and char kway teow for lunch and a visit with the folks. Loud, raucous laughter heard throughout the building. After the visit, we all repaired to our respective rooms for a pick me up nap - yes, it was that kind of day.
|Waiting for first Uber ride|
Then the excitement of the day - took dad out on his first Uber ride. He's been wanting to learn how to use the app; sis had set up his account on previous visit, but didn't have time to take him through a run. I've never used Uber before so it was almost as exciting for me. The whole process was very easy, the cars were clean, the drivers were very helpful and the ride was very easily booked and executed. We just went down to Spring Mall which was not that far away, but enough to give dad a taste of how it worked, and how much easier the trip was if you didn't have to drive, navigate tight corners in indoor parking, and find parking spots close to the main entrance (very hot you see). He was impressed, and I think is confident enough to do it himself. We'll see how many trips he takes before sis gets here in July.
|My new shoes with yellow trip|
That afternoon after the return trip from Spring, I faded quickly, had another shower, turned on the air conditioning and settled in for a snooze. I wonder if it's because I've finally let go of all the other side of the world cares and worries, and am settling into a more relaxed pace here, or if it's because I'm just being lazy. I would like mostly to go to a beach vacation now and sit and read and turn off the phone and not have to worry about other things.

And that was the day - a slow one, but somethings accomplished still. All good!
