2017 Christmas Eve

24 Dec 2017 – Welcome Back to SIN Kat&Family

Fri: TGIF – last Fri before Christmas and a safe weekend to all. Tkx to Sue for her help with baking and fridge shopping. Hope that you have most of your shopping done as the weekend will be packed with ppl. Happy Winter Solstice/Dongzhi冬至 for today and enjoy your Tangyuan/湯圓The black sesame in ginger soup are my favourites. Pix downloaded.


Last mail delivery until BoxingDay. Blessed with entertaining live-music from the common area downstairs in a dark&stormy Fri night for our annual gathering in a dry-comfortable environment of my 4-walls!

Tkx to Ting&CH+Bev for good company&gifts. No mood for cooking, just cold meats+berries, cocktail-sausages, Turkey-Caesar-salad and an Irish-creamed potato. Apologies that the ham was off as I am having fridge problems.

Sat: what are the chances that the fridge and watch breaking down at the same time?? Age is certainly catching on to these items about 18yrs old! Lunched with Clement and went to see his mom, my sis-in-law who is in SGH for a fractured hip after a fall – ouch!!

Family dinner@ChangBBQ/Dempsey Hill with Les&his branch all present here in SIN for this holiday with Lawrence visiting from KCH. Did not have any of those wines and appetite still not at its best but good to see Kat&family who are visiting from the USA.

Sun: today is the last Sunday of Advent

and some humour to get us thru’ 2017 Christmas Eve. Take care and be safe.


At the local MarineTerrace wet-market joining in the holiday ambiance. Am usually there before 0600hrs if getting fresh groceries, but today was there after 0800 mainly to get the orchids.

Was lucky to get whatever was left of this orchid. Some breakfast to take away eating in the comfort&space of my own 4-walls.


Happy 19Anniversary to Patricia&Albert, tkx to Les&Ivy for food&drinks and to Kiera for entertainment on my x-Steinway…

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…
