It's a little early but,,,,,
I'VE JUST RETURNED FROM
THE BEST CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION EVER!!!!!!!
Mini picture spam before I proceed to spazz about the awesome awesome time with my happypills. xD
HOORAY FOR FULL STRENGTH!!!!
♥ Girls of the clique!
Swollen but happy faces on the last day.
The last (wo)men standing! xD
Can you see we had fun, fun, fun???? \O/
It was a 3 days 2 night celebration.
No words can describe how fun, funny, happy and crazy we were!! ^^ :D xD \O/
Come to think it, I find myself repeating this very often when I blog about these guys. ♥
Even though we only had our full strength on the first night (It was over the weekdays! And, some of them had school commitments.); I guess that was good enough since it was the night we planned to exchange gifts for Christmas. In fact, it was actually the night we took the most pictures, laughed the hardest and went the craziest with each other!! ^^ Definitely the best Christmas we've had so far!! :3
So fun, so crazy; that it took me one and a half days to fully recover. Lol.
(Maybe it's just the age. :B boo!)
Came back home in the noon yesterday and napped till early evening. But, I was too stoned to update about it until now. x,x There's also plenty of pictures (more than 400 this time!) to arrange and decide which to blog!! I've scaled down to about 200. Too many nice/funny pictures, I can't bare to skip! So...... yeah, you've been warned about this image-obese entry. xD
I did not manage to sleep a lot even though I'd planned to rest. It has been a while since our last chalet and I told Weishan we must make sure we have proper rest to have fun in the day this time! We even had a lot of verbal plans of what to do... Like morning PTs and other random games! None of that happened. x,x In the end, we only had proper rest on the last night and barely rested on the first. But we had a really good heart-to-heart session on the first night! So it was okay.
I am just sad we didn't do much drinking. Zz Wanted to play some games and even bought poker cards!!!! End up just doing a really long heart-to-heart talk.
THIS CLIQUE DOESN'T DRINK OR CLUB! WHY!!! >:(
Still, I feel super duper blessed to have found these wonderful friends to grow up with! They gave meaning to so so so many festive! Especially Christmas. ♥ Annnd, before I go on to make this entry all mushy and gooey; here's a not-very-short video of our best Christmas celebration so far! XD
A sweet summary of our 3 days 2 night chalet.
Most of us keep exclaiming how we're all smiles when we watch the video and how we rewatch it to relive the moments!
And now, start to the entry! :D
DAY 1: Preparation, a lot of waiting and gift exchange!
Our long long list of groceries for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Because more than half of us were either bounded by school activities or work issues, there was only Weishan, Gary and I who were available for grocery shopping. Took us about an hour or so to round up everything for second day's breakfast, lunch and dinner. We even had remaining funds to buy some decorations!!!!! Was super excited because this is probably our first time decorating for photo-shoot. hehe.
Later, we dropped by my office to collect two cartons of 24-can drinks kindly sponsored by my manager! (Actually, no... Our company gives us cartons of drinks but her family doesn't have the habit of drinking those so I offered to buy them over and she was super nice to just gift it to us. HEH!) And then it was........... to the chalet!!!!! Got lost and had to make an extra turn. Lol.
Grateful to my mother who helped book the chalet and took time to check-in for us! ^^
It was a little upsetting that the management was extremely strict this time. Pets weren't allowed too!
The decoration team!
Not that I didn't wanna help but I won't be able to reach the top anywayz! lol.
Testing the camera angle to make sure photos would turn out nice.
And there you see a little bit of Soohou's hand and knee.
He arrived at the chalet the same time as us!
After these shots, we proceeded to nua and wait for the others.................................
LONGEST WAIT EVER!!!!!!
I end up mopping the entire chalet and washing all the dishes.
Not that the chalet isn't already clean but,,, I just think it could be cleaner.
SPEAKING OF THE CHALET!!!!
We booked Treehouse Villa.
Opposite my all-time favourite Seaview Resort. Lol.
Spot the blackblack lurking. xD
Gary went crazy with this, I swear!
Every now and then filling it up for god knows what reason.
There was even this time he forgot to shut off the water AND IT WAS FILLED TO THE BRIM!!!
Anyway, the guys tried this bath area and said it was better because of the shower-head.
Overall very very similar to Seaview Resort but I guess a tad smaller?
Weishan says the one we got this time isn't as nice as the one her sister got.
And that's all for the chalet. :)
Check out the outside! It was already very dark.
I was already done with all the washing and mopping and cleaning.
Weishan, Gary and Soohou were already over and done with lazing around.
And most importantly, WE WERE FAMISHED!!!!!!
It was already 8pm!!!
But no one else were in sight except the four of us. T^T
Karena and Kesslyn FINALLY arrived with Lance and Chiulee following behind a while later.
It was 9pm. :O
I was already starving! But at this point, Lance and Chiulee weren't there yet.
So, we.... camwhored!!!!!!
Trying to carry here but too heavy. :x
I know we took a lot of shots, but we wanted a proper one.
See this girl photo-bombing again!!! Lol.
& Yes, here is when the
But since we're at it, food can wait for a bit. xD
Our plan this time was - drawing lots to decide who to prepare which meal.
As you can see, Lance and Chiulee were paired to prepare dinner.
But because they were busy with school before, they could only order pizza for dinner.
Safest, easiest and the most delicious choice! xD
&Yes, we ate without Jolene because she was arriving EVEN LATER! /faint
Photo-ready amidst the chaos. xD
We finally filled our stomach and was feeling all satisfied, so we did some camwhoring to digest while waiting for slowpoke Jolene to arrive.
Happy people is happy. xD
I have no idea why we kept squeezing and moving forward when there's plenty of space AND OUR DECORATIONS behind.
Tsk tsk, our excitement should be maintained.
Finally some proper shots. HEHE.
Soohou look so funny here!!!
AH! We also took some timelapse video.
Go check out the video! xD
The only way Gary would have smaller head would be going behind another person.
Lance and his Monkey onesie!
I was hoping we can all get something because it is sooooo cute!
Our pajamas plan failed too. :( End up with a no-theme theme.
Someone (must be Karena) said to be "cool".
And there is Karena smiling so sweetly.
&see what I mean by taking the most pictures on the first night?
Almost halfway into my entry and I'm not even started on our gift exchange. Lol.
&the Mojo Jojo finally made an entrance! :D
Group photo is a must! \O/
No one listens when we take pictures. :(
And I was sharing Weishan's idea to do something... :/
We have the smart, the weird, the cute, the silly, the sexy and the
Check out Soohou's new plaids!
Can't see it?
&Here's the start to our gift exchange!
Had to do it before Chiulee and Samuel leaves for home. :'(
The videos are hilarious!
But stupid .MTS extension isn't allowed in photobucket...
You'll have to settle with the full length video and slowly search for the correct time!
Everyone was talking weirdly during this. LOL.
Karena, chosen as the bunnygirl!
I have no idea why Soohou said this was an award ceremony. LOL.
Samuel going all "There's two layers of wrappers oh~ There's two layers of wrappers!"
"She's someone who does a lot of craft-work, I hope she has use of this~~~"
MY GIFT MY GIFT MY GIFT!!!!!!
Samuel going all hyper after we "french kissed" AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.
Super happy with the gift!
A scrapbook with snowflakes chops! :D
Me doing a not-so-introductory speech.
I picked Soohou!!!!
Actually, Karena was the one but we had to swap because she always have fate with Soohou. Lol.
And we "french kissed" too!!!
This picture is a little too obscene. LOL. But, no, I have no idea who started it but yeah, we just did the angle trick.
AND THIS SOOHOU HIT MY SHOULDER. Freaking painful.
Here is me asking "What? What? What?" because Mojo kept saying I was a beast!
I AM INNOCENT LO!!!! Lol.
A belt and a notebook!
Because we went one round already, Chiulee was the next chosen Santarina!
In the video, you would see Jolene go all weird saying
"This is for you all~ This is for you all~"
while doing princess wave.
Like....... ?! Mad ah. Lol.
"She's someone who likes Pink and Purple"
Who else but ling-jie?
I feel happy and blessed while browsing through the pictures and seeing every single shot with us smiling at any moment. :')
THIS IS SUPER CUTE AND FUNNY!
Must watch video to see how cute and candid Karena is. Bwahahahaha.
Because it was bunnygirl's turn, bunny
HE WAS SUPER FUNNY TOO.
/cue watch video!/
A mega huge Hershey chocolate???????
This Karena Chong really last warning.
Gave her a fake gift (this has sanitary pads!) and took up a lot of video time.
Her video was too long so I refuse to give her more screen time on my blog. LOL.
(There's just no pictures already)
"My gift is for my............ BESTIE!!!!!"
Gary was given some chocolate dispenser with money where he went
"Eh, 有钱勒!!!! (got money leh!!!!)"
Gift part two.
Everyone burst out laughing!!!
We even made him dance a little!
"这个 Wonderwoman 这么多脚毛. (This Wonderwoman has a lot of leg hair)"
This deserves the best gift award!
Weishan seem to always get the funniest and quirkiest gifts!
THIS HIMBO JUST LIKE THE BIMBO.
Fake gift and then the real deal.
Cannot understand what these two has in their minds. LOL.
Lance gave Chiulee a scheduler with this picture I don't think I should upload.
(No, not R21. Just some guy) LOL.
&so, our gift exchange ended with nothing but happy faces!
End of our first day. ^^ And I'm barely halfway done WTH!!! Lol.
Day 2: Eat, sleep, play.
A simple sentence to sum up what we did for the day.
Literally only ate, slept and played. Lol.
Our initial planned verbally made (during Soohou's birthday dinner) was to play camp-like games! But because our heart-to-heart session ended at around 3am (a few of us almost didn't sleep at all!), we end up having breakfast at 12pm. And then lunch at 2pm. LOL! Dinner was planned to start at 6pm but lucky we changed it to 8pm or else, every single one of us would have been stuck on the dining table for the entire day.
We really only ate and napped while some watched TV.
Ah! But we did play wii's 'Just Dance' for a little bit. THE FOUR PLAYERS DANCES ARE HILARIOUS!!!!!!
Kesslyn setting the table.
Next in line to prepare breakfast was Kesslyn and I!
The cooking pan was HORRIBLE!!!!
Burned my toast, left terrible stain marks, took forever to cook my bacon and gave me a hard time cooking my scramble eggs!!!! :(
I had to keep washing the pan because of the stain marks. Zz
Turning into pillow after camping there for breakfast since 8am. Lol.
Them attempting to imitate Jolene's after-bath head.
Same same but different.
Pity Kesslyn and I were busy in the kitchen, missed this good laugh...
&BREAKFAST IS SERVED!!!
Just as planned, at 12pm.
Simple setting that Kesslyn put effort to arrange.
(Lunch's setting totally made this look plain)
Lance finally waking up after Weishan and Karena went to hammer him up. xD
There's me preparing customized lunch for them!
I'm upset that the wrap didn't turn out as what I wanted though.
Cheese became cold and hardened. :(
Pretty Mojo Jojo! ♥
Unglam shot of me OMG!
But I guess I will look like this when I extract my wisdom tooth. LOL. If I ever that is.
Us just chilling on bed.
I really like sleepovers!
But this is the closest I'll ever get.
Better than nothing right?
Karena looks cute without makeup lo!
&With no time to waste, the
This apron came in just in time, didn't it?
All of us refreshing up!
SO FANCY FOR WHAT RIGHT?!
End up creating A LOT of dishes!
Speaking of dishes, we wanted to play games to decide who does the dishes after every meal.
For breakfast, Jolene and Kesslyn were chosen.
And then.... That was the end of it because we couldn't agree on a common fairness.
So everyone chipped in to wash a bit here and there. :)
Lunch team that gave us an unforgettable lunch serving and plenty of dishes to clear. lol.
/watch video for lunch serving!/
US PLAYING WII's 'Just Dance'
Check our Gary just bursting into laughter!
The fun of it is to actually dance!
Good exercise too!
Not long after, dinner preparation started. x,x
The in-charge for the night.
Samuel was part of this team but....... he left.
Us playing a few more games before going over to help these two!
THEY ARE SO ADORABLY CLUELESS WITH WHAT IS TO BE DONE!
Funniest when Soohou washed the roots of the mushroom that Weishan had cut off to throw! LOL.
Finally an unglam shot of Weishan. xD
To balance things out, my gorgeous spousey here. xD
The food we couldn't finish! Boooooooooooooooooo.
OH YA! You can spot Dickson here.
We invited our dear friends' partners. But, only Dickson could make it. :((
Would have been extra fun (&an extra stomach to finish our food) to have John over!
&Would have been really nice to have Adeline over to pull her into the clique!! hehe.
After dinner, we cleared up and rested.
I think this was the only time we lazed around with our phones.
I am super happy that we barely took out our phones (except Wong Soo Hou!) during the entire chalet this time. ^^
This Soohou damn ass..... He was the one who actually suggested to keep our phones in a box and to have "commercial" breaks in-between. In the end, most of us barely used it during the entire stay except him! I remember him hogging on to his throughout our heart-to-heart session ah! Tsktsk.
One of the reasons why this is the best celebration so far is because of this. No other distractions and full(almost) involvement together on something. It was nice to not have smaller groups doing small chats and their own activities during this chalet. ^^
Last group shots before Lance, Kesslyn and Dickson left the chalet.
The rest of us lazed a little bit more before Jolene suggest to go for some Red Ruby.
SERIOUSLY!!! This girl had so so so much Red Ruby, it's almost impossible!
Okay, I exaggerated.
But, really..... She probably had like...... 4 tubs of Red Ruby over the stay. Bought 3 the first time and 2 again. Of course, we all shared but I think she ate quite a bit.
I have to admit that it's nice though. :x
And so, we headed out to get some Red Ruby and chill at Changi Beach.
Except, we didn't really chill.
Played the swings until a bunch of Teenagers arrive and corrupt the space with vulgarities.
We made fun of them by using CB at the end of our sentences too though. It was really funny and childish! Lol.
Then, we walked a long way before heading back to the car.
But, Gary Weishan Jolene and Soohou tried to ditch us there at the beach and raced back to the car before us. They even sent an image of them in the car with a "Guess where we are". Being smarty pants, Karena already predicted they would do that. She even guessed that they would run back to the car and indeed, they were so freaking loud - we could easily spot them!
This time, we didn't really want to go after them and go all crazy. lol Of course we knew, these awesome people would never abandon us!
So, Karena and I decide to disappear. Make them panic for pulling such prank. We hid at some area and ignored their calls.
Gary even whatsapp-ed us "Give you 20 seconds or I leave already".
(Sound totally like my Dad)
Probably went missing for about 15 minutes? And then we decide to stroll to the carpark until Karena spotted Gary and Weishan searching for us. She totally pulled me down and we started squat-walking. LOL. She even wanted me to run but I couldn't! My shoes was wrong and.......... my..........
We brisk walked to the car and acted like nothing happened asking how they could be faster than us and all. Both Karena and I had a really hard time suppressing our laughters! But I eventually gave the lie away because I can't lie and kept giggling. Zzz Seriously, what's wrong with me?!
Got back to the chalet, washed up, watched Beyonce's documentary, 'Life's is But a Dream' and ended the night in bed. :')
Next morning was the end of our awesome celebration. Checked out at 10am, had breakfast together, concluded that we should not do any more cooking in future and got a ride home. :'D
ps: Thank you very much, Gary for willingly chauffeur us around all the time! ♥
Of course we need to take group shots before leaving!
Sounds like the end of my entry?
Few more pictures too go!
Other than my usual favourite shots, I realize I took quite a few selfies this time.
So so so!!!!!!
Let me spam a bit. xD
And oh! Have I already mentioned how much I love my hair?!!!
Yes, I know I did.
I also love my new pair of spectacles.
If you haven't check out our video, here's your last chance!
&HERE ARE MY FAVOURITE SHOTS!!! :D
Loving Karena's camera.
We look so nice here! :D
Only our 7th Christmas celebration so far but definitely our best!!! :3
Hopefully, we can top this celebration next year and go even crazier!! hee.
Thank you guys for being so awesome!
Thank you guys for standing by this friendship!
Thank you guys for still sharing the same frequency and still being a child at heart!
Thank you guys for giving my Christmas a special special meaning.
Let's continue to celebrate Christmas till we have kids and white hair! Xd
