It's August

I am thankful to have survived the busy month of July 2008. Hopefully I can also pull through the month of August 2008.

It is the first day of August 2008, and I am experiencing an irritated throat and a mildly blocked nose. I wonder if I had caught the flu bug. I wish for good health. The month of August 2008 is filled with lots of work commitments. I simply hope I could at least make the best of it, and yet not suffer burn-out at work.

As for the month of September, I figured I have to be very focused at work so that I can clear most of my work by the beginning of the month. Thereafter, I will be heading for a week of holiday in the Land Down Under a few days after performing in an upcoming concert, Couleurs de L'arc-en-Ciel (Colours of the Rainbow), held on 10 Sep 2008 (Wed), 7 p.m., at National Library Board Plaza. In this free public concert, NUS Symphony Orchestra will be performing extracts from Steven Spielberg's Oscar-winning 'Schindler's List', Silvestri: Forrest Gump and more.

On the side, I don't like it when concerts are given with long and foreign names. I end up having to use the English name instead, which kind of defeats the purpose of using a seemingly beautiful foreign name. Having said so, maybe I am just biased.

Whatever it is, wishing you a fulfilling month of August 2008. May happiness, good health and fulfilment be with you.

Looks like you're going to have a busy time before your holiday. I feel like this is always the case when it comes to holiday. I almost always have to work like a slave before my holiday and that makes me treasure more about the holiday.
