Have a Break and Chill Out On Cooling-Off Day

Take a Break...
Take a Break...

Tired of the sensory overload of information for the upcoming elections this Saturday?

Tomorrow is the government-mandated Cooling-Off Day.

The mainstream media will be taking a break.

You can take a break too to hang out at the beach or have a dinner gathering with close friends, whatever rocks your boat.

I love to travel, hence for me, the perfect break would be to be able to fly away for an exotic holiday.

Realistically  though, a good break for me tomorrow would be to be able to laze on my living room sofa for some quiet reading while munching on my favourite snacks like a bar of Kit Kit for instance.

With a good break comes a clearer brain. With a clearer brain, you would be better able to consider your choices carefully and vote wisely the next day. 🙂

This post is written as a sample blog entry for Kit Kat ®’s Yer Big Break! Blogging Challenge, brought to you by Kit Kat ® and omy.sg:
