After enjoying myself silly last Saturday on my 17+++ birthday, visiting the place where I spent my teenage years, this week is going to be a rather busy week.
Will be driving to KL early tomorrow morning to attend a seminar on Women, Girls and HIV in Malaysia. The seminar will end by lunch time; but I am a little bit confused as to whether I need to stay on after that. In the earlier email that I got, the tentative programme only mentioned about the seminar. Then a fax came in, and the tentative programme included a “Mesyuarat Jawatankuasa Pasukan Petugas HIV/AIDS Wanita dan Remaja Perempuan”. I remember being called for a meeting before which I couldn’t attend, and so now I’m not sure if I’m supposed to attend this meeting. I hope I don’t have to… at least I can leave KL before office hours end!
On Thursday I have to attend a meeting of the Jawatankuasa Kempen Kesedaran & Pencegahan (for schools) here in Ipoh.
Friday – I got an invitation by the club sponsoring groceries for Sofie’s and Lin’s families, to attend their AGM. It seems they want to acknowledge my contribution in delivering the groceries to the 2 families. But I had already promised to bring Saiful to get his pair of glasses; and to me that is more important, and so I had to turn down the AGM invitation.
Saturday – Our exhibition at a hotel in Ipoh in conjunction with a conference held by the Perak Palliative Care Society. My shift will be in the afternoon so at least I can go to the pasar tani in the morning after missing my Saturday morning routine last week.
Sunday – the exhibition is still on until afternoon but I have already left it to my vice-chairman to handle the exhibition (since he’s the coordinator for public awareness programmes). I and 4 other volunteers will be taking part in a charity run. Yep, we will be running 2km each for charity. And as my own personal run-up to the charity run, last Saturday I volunteered to play volleyball in a Under-60s vs Under 16s game at my alma-mater. After the volleyball game ended, I was just trying to “lepas gian” hitting some balls with the hockey stick. As I was about to return the hockey stick, I was pulled in to play hockey as well (in a much smaller field and in a much shorter time).
The good thing is, I still feel okay after the 2 games, and so I think I should be doing okay for the 2 km run. I know I can walk 2 km, so worse comes to worse, I’ll walk!
So looks like I only have Wednesday free this week…
