Celebrated this year's christmas with a flu and bad throat. I didnt quite enjoy this year's christmas except for the fact that I went shopping for gifts for friends and helped Kenny decorated his Xmas tree. To be exact - I have not, in my entire life, decorated a Xmas tree. My family is a very conservative-traditional chinese-BUDDIST family. So there isn't any Christmas thinge at my house.
I took the entire half day for Xmas eve to sleep. Then, me and Kenny head to FF Curve for Klevin's body balance. Felt so bad as I FFK him a few times for classes. Sorry dude* Later, we had Xmas eve dinner's at Mark's place. It was such a hassle as both Kenny and I didn't wrap our pressie's yet. So we ended up wrapping the gifts at the Car Park! What and experience! We had a simple dinner, exchange gifts and played around with Styx, Mark's cute and adorable dog! Agh .. I wish I had a JRussell :P
Then, Jenny, ChooiYin, Kenny and I overnighted at Kenny's condo. We played Mahjong till like 5am! Phew ... It was tiring but fun! You should have seen how ChooiYin acted after she had 2 glasses of Bailey's on rock. She was totally whacked out and begin her "raba-raba kungfu" or what we call in chinese "Ji Mo"! Hahahaha
Xmas day arrived but ironically - I helped mum decorate the house for Chinese New Year. Weird! Decorating the house for CNY while the radio blasts off with Xmas song! Well, like I said; Conservative-Traditional Chinese-Buddist Family :-)
Later, had Xmas BBQ ala Japanese dinner @ Midvalley with Kenny and it's so amazing how Midvalley's Decos are still attracting people! I've been to Midvalley at least 4 times this month and the fabulous decos are still like hot cakes. People crowd the center hall just to take pictures of the wonderful setting! Good marketing efford I shall say! I like it anyway; and It's quite hard for me to like anything ...
Then head home and slept till now. Just finished watching Tortoro. It's so nice! So sad to say that people no longer produce cartoon as meaningful as that. Thumbs up for producers from Tortoro and Spirited Away.

Arrive in Singapore. Got my 1st chop in the passport. Went through the Custom and met Erwin. Went over to his place to rest and headed straight to shopping. We started at Orchard and walk and walk and walk and walk. Then we went to another shopping venue @ Suntec City and we continued to walk and walk and walk and walk. Man it was tiring!
One thing really inspire me about Singapore is about their transportation technology! It is damm cool! All cabs has this satelite central thinge. They do not use Walkie Talkie! AGH! ~~~ COOL
Then, we went onto a city tour called Ducktous. It was Erwin's company. It was so much fun! Hahahaa ... We sat on this boat with big truck wheels and then went into Marina Bay for the city tour. It went on both ground and water! The most important thinge in this activity is that i got really NICE PICTURES of the city and historical monuments and ...wow...the tour guide' Leonard was so bloody cute! HAHAHA ... So nice! Thanks Erwin!
Then we continued to walk and walk and walk and walk. Of course, all this walking exercise took place in shopping malls! It's amazing how much shopping malls they have!
As we reach night time, we had pasta as dinner and went clubbing. The very next day, we followed William and Klevin and travelled around the same places me and Kenny had went. Well, it was all-mostly that is- about shopping in Singapore! So the damage begins at 12pm ... You should have seen the guys! Their shopping bags were like a trolley full! If anyone snatches the bags away; it would at least sum up to a RM2000! The damage of course ended about 12am. Yes - We were shopping for 12 hours! Non-stop!
Sad thou, the Christmans Deco was nothing to shout about. Kenny agrees. Erwin told me that Singapore Tourism Board has allocated the the budget on something else - on promotional effort and a street party. Sadly, I didn't notice both - but the bad Decos. It is not as bad - It's just too plain and the Christmas Spirit wasn't really burning!
Lastly, my trip was Ok... Indimated by the exchange rate. Everytime I wanted to get something; I thought to myself - I can't afford it. I only got a pair of red Havaianas sandals and 2 crumper thirtsy pouch for my camera and mini. I KNOW I KNOW! I am a crumpler whore rite ~~~~ :P ...
PS - Erwin got a really cute fluffy bunny @ his house! So cute. Miss him so much ... I named the bunny - Louis V! Hahaha ... Erwin calls him Louis only.
