Pack your things, Malik. We're riding the car.

I don't know how my parents did it. They went to work every single workday without fail, never went on evening nights out, and never went on vacations. At least my dad had a beer or two after a hard day's work. But my mom. Wow. She just went to work, went home, went to work, went home ...for close to thirty freakin' years. I would have been driven mad by such predictability.

Personally, I think it's best that we ocassionally take a breather from our daily routines. Spontaneity prevents insanity, I say. So even on weekdays, we randomly decide to, say, take Malik to a basketball game -

This was the exhibition game between Smart Gilas and a team from Qatar. I'm not sure if this was their national team, but judging from the way they played, siguro naman hindi. Haha

We went with Pao's officemate, Narwin -

Look at their jerseys. I initially thought, "How odd, Pao. All of the Qatar players have the same surname." Heehee

Sometimes after work, we also take Malik to a place where he can ride horsies -

Or show off his new shirt -

I hope we can still do this even when Malik goes to school already. We'll just have to strike a balance between being sane parents and developing some sort of routine for the sake of Malik's education. At least it won't come to the point when I'd make up fake family emergencies so I can take Malik out of school. No, no. We won't come to that...I think.
