Christmas 2016

26 Dec 2016 – Happy Boxing Day


Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
You’ll ever be unchanging!
A symbol of goodwill and love…
Fri: dank je (Dutch) TGIF – enjoy this last 2016 weekend.
谢谢Xièxiè (Chinese) to Calvin&staff of CC for a delicious evening in good company of dashing ppl in plaids.
My favourite one is only but 9months young – pix credits to Chris.
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!


Sat: fun to catch up at our annual get-together. Italian taste is on the menu today – appreciations to Ting for the bruschetta, Bev for the cheese and crackers. Tkx Ting, CH and Bev for good company and gifts. Pix credits to all 3.


So good of Lawrence, Les&Ivy to drop by for a bite after Christmas Eve Mass at the chapel of St Patrick’s School. Tkx to Les for these bubbles and to Grace for this only hand-made greetings.


Sun: from my family to yours –


from SIN to where ever this greetings can reach, wishing each and everyone peace and joy. Merry Christmas and goodwill to all.


Thank you to Ivy&Les for the annual Christmas lunch@Tanglin Club. A wonderful time was enjoyed by all with abundance of good company, food and wines.


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
