Malaysians are kind at heart. We always have the desire to help people, but lament our lack of time to volunteer. With the weekend, we can always opt to visit an orphanage home, volunteer to teach Orang Asli kids or volunteer at a soup kitchen. Do good, and good will come to you!
Rest, just plainly means to sleep in during the weekend. With the hectic week and the thought of exerting more energy on the weekends, sitting at home and resting may just be a perfect choice. Rest and recharge for the week ahead!
