It is already August! What does it mean?
When my Dad was still alive, he declared that everyday of August was my birthday!

I thought I took photos of the mango sago, almond jelly and fresh fruits.
I was so full and sleepy after lunch.
Maybe I am indeed getting older. I do not like to sleep in the afternoon except when I am sick but lately, I have been sleeping from 3-6 pm!
One would think it was because I slept late and woke up early.
I slept early (11-12 midnight is early) and woke up at 11 am then would sleep again at 3 to 6 then sleep again at 11 pm!
Age is finally catching up with me??? Or is it my body telling me to slow down?
Whenever I come from a trip I always get very tired not because of all the activities but because of having to wake up early.
I have a lot of activites lined up for August. I have to learn to pace myself.
