I’m a bit lazy and didn’t take photos of my Christmas gifts.. and also gifts aren’t a big thing in our family, I personally feel it detracts from the true meaning of Christmas, and turns it into a really commercialised holiday which is a bit distasteful for me. So I prefer just small tokens, though having said that I do also sometimes go nuts – just depends, haha! I was proud of myself having planned and bought most of my Christmas presents about 2 months in advance.. I was super organised! I won’t list out everything I gave, but I got Dad Oroton cufflinks and Mum a family lunch at the French restaurant Au Jardin @ The Botanic Gardens.. though I have a feeling I’m the one that’s most excited about it – hee!
Some nice things I received:
Swarovski bracelet from my aunt
Nokia phone from mum and dad (in orange)
And a cool Samsung LCD TV and Digital Video Recorder! Which I’ll lug back to Australia… it’s been much anticipated and awaited as my current TV is dying on me.
Before Church Christmas service, we went to
Lunch was a banquet at the Shangri-La Hotel.. with ~1,000 people there. Whew! Couldn’t be bothered to take photos of the food, so I took a pic of the menu 😉 The star dishes were the Cod fish and Noodles – yum!! And the dessert buffet was amazing 😉

Okay, I’m running out to a dinner party now…….. so MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you and much love!
