Before year end

1 more week - bye bye to 2008 :( - so this remaining 1 week - Bahija busy busy with the following :-

Work - been cracking her head to produce a system and DB health check report for customer, due Dec 31 ...and sad / happy thing - there's only 3 more working days nia , aiii - really no mood to work , yet have to 'force' to complete it ...it's very torturing at this moment ....

Thanksgiving - prepared gifts, hampers to thank my youngest sister's friends and colleagues - they helped us a lot when my sister discovered her blood clot in her brain and went thru her brain surgery. The chinese saying '出外靠朋友' English version 'when you are outside of your house, you are relying on friends for support'. This saying is very true. We received great support from my sister's friends and colleagues. Thus for this christmas, I prepared hampers, gifts as well as sumptuous dinner for them. To extend our gratitude to them , to appreciate them :)

Points - Bahija has to last minute ensure all my travel mileages are intact , for those which is expiring , decide to extend or do something lor ... while I am checking this , Bahija realized I've claimed 3 Hong Kong tickets from CX, 1 Bali ticket from SIA , though the wish to claim London ticket is gone , I'm very happy and thankful to In-Kei for all those 'side-travels'

Tax - Before the date change to 2009 , I need to decide my 2008 taxation - do I want to maximize the $1000 books purchase, spend more for expenses etc ...

Medical, Dental, Optical claims - this year, all these claims completed in May/June before I left In-Kei. Now , self-employed , no more such privilleages ...oh, except a $500 personal health check which can be deducted for tax (I'll use it for 2009 tax )

Christmas Eve - there's ONE BIG thing happening for one of my family member - it's TOP SECRET now - can't tell yet

Christmas Day - Bahija is all set for christmas, nothing fancy , just attend christmas service at 9am. Then go to Monica's house for christmas lunch, then go back to church for a special event - to meet all the politicians - the ministers including our PM , Deputy PM leh :) , then family christmas dinner ...

Boxing Day - grocery shopping and cooking at home, hosting 2 parties for friends

Dec 31 - Plan for my 2009
