2 delicious suckling piglets were the high points+much more to make a feast fit for a king. Tkx to Yvonne for her yummy dates, cheese and walnuts. My contribution is the usual innocent 🙂 fruit cocktail salad!

Comment from Audrey – Is this your entire clan? Geez… My reply – far from entire clan – only just a tiny fraction, none of my children and grandchildren (10) are here! None of my 2bro (16), and not the complete family of bros 1, 3, 4 and sis’s family here. Total from Branch1 (my siblings and I) stands at 67 today!! My father being Branch1, so try and count how many when I total in all the other 12branches????

Jo insisted on making dinner and Lawrence wanted to see the Orchard Rd Christmas lights, imagine what it is like sitting in the traffic,but then one can enjoy the lights! (Posting for these lights – 12Dec). As always Tanglin Club, CHIJMES and Raffles Hotel are my favourties.

Mon: Happy Boxing Day! Thank you to DaisyChia for a lovely stroll@East Coast Park and MeeSiam@MarineCove. Delighted to see ppl taking time to enjoy this public holiday outdoors.

When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself ― Tecumseh
