A different Sunday

*Edited
We usually sleep in a bit late on Sunday, I will cook breakfast and lunch for my family, and then go to gym in the afternoon.
Last Sunday was not the common Sunday we used to have, as I signed up a stall at April's school building fund raising charity fair. This school was also my husband and my own primary school. So, I think it is good that we can do something to help raising fund for the new school building.

I asked my MIL to help steaming yam cakes and pumpkins for me to sell. I shared a stall with a man who wanted to sell Nyonya Kuih. We all woke up early like weekdays. My two girls took part in the colouring contest event of the Charity Fair. This Charity Fair was actually run by Nanyang Siang Pau, Astro and the school. The whole activity ended at 2pm. 
We went home to take a nap, as at night, we got more exciting thing to do. We ordered Pizza Hut Delivery and watched Olympics Badminton Men's Singles Final at home. You shall see my two girls, one hand holding National Flag and another hand holding praying beads. They were cheering and chanting at the same time, praying for Dato LCW's victory.
Now, I shall pictures do the talking.

I reached school at 7.30am setting up my stall with my MIL steamed yam cakes and steamed pumpkin cakes.
I fully sold out all my MIL steamed cakes, but uncle's Nyonya Kuih wasn't 'laku'. I gave some to the neighbour stalls and some brought back for friends. I would like thank my colleagues and friends for dropping by and supporting my stall yesterday. I feel so proud for being able to do something for my  primary school.
