🎶 Tis the season to be jolly,
Fa la la la la la la la la 🎶


Christmas was good. :) Spent the afternoon with my family before they go off to enjoy a night at G.Spa, while I head home for a small celebration with friends from lower secondary school!!! We settled the venue at my place because I was lazy to go out, and we've never had a potluck dinner before. It was a good choice because I didn't have to rush home for work tomorrow (bummer), and we could all comfortably stuff ourselves with plenty of food. Lol. Everyone was too generous and brought too much food!!

Gift exchange was simple. Prepared generic gifts and picked our gifts through draws. The budget was $20!

It was a very enjoyable night together thanks to Bing Cheng who organised it. :)
We've known each other for 10 years now, it's pretty crazy. 13 then and 23 now. :O

Side track a little to my afternoon!

Here's how I spent my afternoon with the mother and sister.
Them staring at their phones while I watch them.... stare at their phones. Lol.
Not through the noon but pretty much half the time! >:(

Here's us enjoying some drinks at Dean & Deluca after a heavy brunch with the grandmother and relatives from KL. Lol.
We had a really good buffet brunch at Orchard Central's Tung Lok Seafood. Fresh sashimi and everything else was delicious! Could have spammed their red bean soup dessert if I wasn't that stuffed.

&Baaaaaaack to the celebration~

Pizza from gourmetpizzatogo X again!
Just the pizza was good enough, but look at the sides behind!!!

One of us brought BBQ-ed chicken wings! Delicious!!!
There was also pork knuckle and steamed fish!
Talk about fusion! Everything we had was such a mismatch. Hahaha.

Everyone came at different times so we just started without waiting. Some were damn late, tsk!

Caught up over dinner while waiting for everyone to arrive and finish as much food as we can. There was quite a bit of leftover. lol. Such a waste. Most of them brought the food home though.

I got his gift and he got my gift.
I was really relieved to know that Dickson got my gift!

I got a pretty lame diver lamp to put beside laptops. LOL.
Chose this gift because it looks really cute?! Dickson is most appropriate to receive this, being a diver once himself! hahahah.

All the gifts!
I don't like gifting chocolates. :X I hope someone bans it for next year's gift exchange. Lol.
It's the easiest gift to prepare.....................................

Fine, I shall not be a bitch because it's still a gift and it's the thought that counts. :)

And the mess we made; tearing wrappers up and all.

Someone got a logcake too!!!!!
This year is the first time I'm eating one. Always getting these pretty cakes to take pictures, but have never eaten one.
Not that it's any special..... Just...... :/

After dinner, gift exchange, gift opening and what now, we cleaned up and settled down in the living room to watch random Youtube videos. LOL!
