Routine Check

I got this tag from Shiaulin called Routine Check, umm in general most of our life is quite routine, wake up, dress, went to work, lunch, work again, return back, dinner and sleep. On a bigger note, we were born, growing up, study, then work, courting, flirting, married, our children is born, work harder, then retire, then sick and then we pack and go for a “vacation” in another world. After "vacationing", for the lucky lot they will get born again, grows up and continue the same old cycle. Of course there are some who actually faces different situation daily but this falls under the minority in the world population. For the majority of us we will make do with what ever that is interesting out there.

I would not separate as what Shiaulin did by before & after marriage and her son is born but I would separate and highlight routines that have changes as I guess the original purpose of this meme is to do that (trying to be smart here and avoid writing a long post as its time for me to prepare my next day lunch, hahaha). I will not include my post illness routine as its actually a 360 degree change. In terms of my routine nothing much has changed. The difference is the way that it is being done. Its also could be due to the fact that our thinking and action has matured and also due to the physical changes to our body as we grew older. In most activities we try to do it together as the main ingredient of a good marriage is partnership, balance of power and act of compromise. I think it’s a matter of blending both of our likes and dislikes together and in our case culture also. After a while you realise whatever that you used to dislike or like will be changed according to the results of the blending. This means that after a while my routine will becomes my wife routine or her routine will becomes mine.

Waking up, I still woke up early in regardless if its weekday or weekends. Now I might laze around a bit turning around in the bed instead of heading immediately for my shower on weekdays. On weekends my morning routine still remains the same, opens up the TV catching some cartoons; follow by downloading my mails and brisk net surfing. I will finish all this before I will actually brush my teeth. My wife will by then wakes up.

Breakfast, I used to skip breakfast on weekdays and on weekends I will take brunch instead of breakfast in the market and it mainly consist of my favourite food like nasi lemak, Lum Yee Mee, Hokkien Mee, See Hum Chow Fun, and etc all in XL quantity. After married we took breakfast together on weekdays at food stores near my home or office and on weekends I still take my usual XL brunch plus my wife portion if she could not finish it. After that I will still enjoy my weekend newspaper with a cup of coffee at the stall waiting for my sister while she shops for raw material to cook for our dinner. My wife could not really eat a lot in the morning hence we will take some snack or her lunch in the afternoon during our weekend window shopping.

Shopping, I loves to burn time at shopping complex during weekends and I do not mind going to the same shopping complex every week. After married we still window shops together but we will have more “varieties” alternate between KLCC, Mid Valley, Low Yat & Sungai Wang and Bandar Utama. So if you are around these areas, do watch out for me. As for my yearly shopping, I will normally do it during Sales as I love to dig at bargain corner “fighting and racing” with other shoppers during sales, as for my wife, she prefers when there are no sales as she dislikes crowds. So after married we will normally go on odd hours during sales or we will go during pre-sale for members. After years of married, my wife seems to quite enjoy the bargain and the “competition” during sales.

Brushing my teeth, I do brush my teeth every morning but I do not brush my teeth at night I will just rinse it with water. After married, on most nights I will brush my teeth unless I felt lazy or tired.

Reading, I am not the type of guys who read books often or routinely. After married my wife loves for books actually convert me from a book hater to an occasional or social reader. There are times we will buy hundreds dollars worth of books during MPH warehouse sales. Now I enjoyed my weekly read of Newsweek or Times Magazine.

I am one of those boring people who do the same thing all over again. I do not have any special routines hence there is nothing much to writes about. I was once told that the only road I know is between the office and the house. There are some routines that remains the same for example I still changed my clothes in the room, walk around nude when drying myself after shower. I still spend time reading magazine in the bathroom while doing my big business. Well thats all I could think of, wow this meme is really difficult to do as need to remember the before and after, hahaha I always only remember the after. I do not think I will pass this to anyone so do not worry......hahaha.
