Today is New South Wales' celebration of Labour Day and we had a chance to do more with our weekend. Planning a 3-day weekend is so much easier compared to a 2-day weekend.
Sometimes, we'd go out of town during long weekends but this time, decided to stay in Sydney so we can do more with our free time and have a balance between socialization, play, rest and chores.
Time to Dress Up and Party. We kicked off Saturday with a lunch party with friends at Hard Rock Sydney. Dressing up does wonders to a tired psyche while being surrounded by laughter of good friends brings instant sunshine to anyone's life.
A Little Reward to Make Myself Feel Loved by Me. The Husband and I went around the shops after lunch with friends and we decided to buy ourselves little gifts as a reward for the days and nights we've been working hard at the office.
Time for Us = Saturday Date Night. We'd usually have our coffee dates on Fridays but since it's a long weekend and we were already out on Saturday, we hung out at Strathfield (one of Sydney Metro's Korea Towns) on a quest to try out a new cafe (for coffee) and Korean restaurant (for dinner).
We found a stationery cafe called "My Sweet Memory" that serves delicious coffee and sells amazing and cute stationery.
Dinner was at Ce Ci Korean Restaurant where we had a Deep-fried Chicken in Spicy Sauce and Spicy Beef & Tofu Hot Pot.
Time for a Good Read, Health and Beauty. Our weekends will never be complete without a good rest and time for ourselves. I won't function well the whole week without an afternoon nap either on Saturday or Sunday. I usually exercise inside the home but today, the sun shone so I was able to run outdoors for a bit. What I love most about long weekends? I get to have more "Me" time!
Time for a Naughty Treat. Another little reward to myself in the form of my favourite doughnut for breakfast. Knowing the I have more time for exercise, I let myself have a doughnut this morning.
Long weekends or not, I don't think time will ever be enough to do everything we want to do. But with the help of a balanced schedule, a wife like me can make the most of what a family can do with a 3-day weekend.
Have a great week ahead!
