Life Should Be Extraordinary

If I can name only one thing that can make me unhappy, it will be "routine". I dont like routine, I hate it. In all my life I have been trying to avoid it. Which sometimes made me quite an inconsistent person. For example I can never dine in a same restaurant everyday, no matter how tasty the food is. I have to force myself to focus on doing the same set of movement in the morning when rushing for work. Most of the time I will end up doing things which I should not do and arrive late to the office.

Recently I have been blessed with an opportunity to attend and work at a client's office, instead of mine. I was delighted to have a change of route to work every morning and meeting new peoples. I walked to different restaurants everyday for lunch. I learned new office jokes and made new ones with new colleagues. Everyday has been an exciting new day for me especially when I passed by my office in Sheikh Zayed Road heading to the client's office. But now after 4 weeks, I have started to miss my desk, computer and usual colleagues. I think the dust have settled down on me in the client's office and everything has started to feel like routine.

However despite my habit of change, one thing which I constantly and steadfastly feel and do is to miss my wife and son at home. This year I plan to visit them every three months. My last visit was in March. I just bought a flight ticket to come home in early June. Instead of just coming home, I have been blessed with opportunity to arrange Umrah trip with my wife, mother in law and 2 sisters in law. This will be my second Umrah trip InshaAllah...I hope my journey to Mecca will bring good change to me as a person and Muslim.



Until then..

Indeed, I wish life is extraordinary; but for someone like me, who gets paid doing routine works with the chocolates, having a life less ordinary is good enough. Like today, I only eat the red M&M's, tomorrow yellow, the day after green and so on....sweeeeet.
By the way, when are we going to do the routine of slurping pulled mee? I kinda of missing that..
