December 2008


It's Time for the Saga.....

So what have I been doing at the end of 2008 and beginning of 2009?
Other than nursing a relapse of a pretty bad flu (my voice is simply horrible now), my head is “buried” deep into the Twilight Saga. Yes, after the movie, it’s time to hit the books! 😀
But before I carry on, here’s wishing everyone a fantastic 2009! Enjoy the holidays!!

在2008的尾聲﹐2009的開始﹐我在忙些什麼呢﹖
除了在養病(是的﹐我又得了重感冒﹗)之外
就是忙著埋頭苦讀“暮光之城”(看完電影就到看書啦^^)
不過在繼續聞我的書香前
祝福大家有個快樂的2009﹗﹗
要好好享受新年假期唷﹗﹗ 😀

It was a small package that I received from Ivy yesterday. But it was such a BIG surprise when I opened up!
Handcarved teddybear stamp plus bookmark plus stickers plus card!! Oh my goodness, I was soooo happyyyy!!! :mrgreen:
Thank you so much, Ivy! You really made my day!!

昨天收到了Ivy寄來的小包裹。
打開一看﹐真是開心得想尖叫三聲﹗﹗
Ivy居然送了個可愛的熊熊手刻章和其它手做好物給我﹗﹗﹗
實在是太意外又超級興奮的﹗ :mrgreen:
謝謝Ivy唷﹗﹗(^o^)

Surprise from Ivy, Taiwan

This is the porcupine/hedgehog stamp that was on the envelope. Isn’t it cute?? 🙂
這是出現在信封上的刺蝟章。好可愛﹐對吧﹗﹗ 🙂

Over the past weekend, I tried baking cupcakes and cookies with my friends. But it turn out to be pretty unsucessful! Nevertheless, we had a tiring and fun afternoon. ^0^

剛過的週末﹐和朋友嘗試烘蛋糕和餅乾。
不過成品出來後還真有夠糟糕的﹗
反正就是好失敗﹐大家看照片就知道了﹗﹗
呵呵。

Basically, it’s all about food on Christmas Eve & Day. 🙂
基本上﹐聖誕前夕和聖誕節是在大吃大喝中渡過的。 🙂

Seafood Platter from The Manhattan Fish Market
Seafood Platter lunch with Val on Christmas Eve at The Manhattan Fish Market.
聖誕前夕與好友Val的豐富午餐-海鮮拼盤。

Christmas Eve Celebration
Christmas Eve night, a mini celebration at home with my family. We had chocolate fudge log cake (cheap and good!), ham and sparkling wine.
聖誕前夕晚上與家人來個迷你慶祝會。有巧克力樹桐蛋糕(便宜又好吃﹗)﹐火腿和酒精成份不多的酒。

Christmas Day Afternoon Tea
It was a quiet but wonderful Christmas Day afternoon at home. I had coffee using my new Disney cup and wooden spoon (gift from Tiffany), and had some light snacks while reading an old copy of the Cotton & Paint magazine.
聖誕節下午很寧靜。午茶時間泡了杯咖啡﹐吃了小點心還翻閱了舊的日本雜貨雜誌。好舒服唷﹗

Christmas Day Dinner
Christmas Day dinner was Popeyes fried chicken with cajun fries and mashed potatoes. Yummy!
聖誕節晚餐是邊吃Popeyes炸雞﹐薯條和馬鈴薯泥﹐邊看“不良校花”。好吃又好笑﹗

How’s everybody’s Christmas holidays? I hope all of you are as happy as me. 🙂
大家的聖誕假期過得可好﹖希望你們也跟我一樣渡過了個美好假期。 🙂

Pressies from Tiffany

Wooden teaspoon, wooden porcupine/hedgehog calendar and a hand-drawn card – all sent by Tiffany. Love all these wonderful pressies! Thank you so much, my dear friend!! ^^

收到這份禮物時﹐真的很開心﹗
有我很喜歡的木湯匙和刺蝟木日曆
當然還有那“只此一家”的手繪卡片
謝謝小魔女唷﹗﹗ ^^

Christmas Lightings at Orchard Road (3)

These are the christmas lightings from Orchard Road this year. Not as good as before but they still attracted a lot of camera flash lights. So how is everyone’s christmas preparation going on?
Here’s wishing my family, friends, everyone a warm and wonderful christmas! Merry Christmas!!! :mrgreen:

這是今年的烏節路聖誕燈飾。
不比往年的好但也算okay﹐還是一樣吸引了很多鎂光燈。
大家的聖誕節準備工作進行得七七八八了嗎﹖
在此祝愿我的家人和所有的朋友們過個溫馨又愉快的聖誕節﹗聖誕快樂﹗﹗﹗ :mrgreen:

Twilight

Took some time off from work to watch this movie with my buddy, Val. It was pretty good, not only with the actors and actresses, but the sceneries and soundtrack as well. But I believe the novel itself will be even more interesting as there are much more details available. I can’t wait to get hold of my copy through reservation from the library! 🙂

趁週末和好友Val去看了這部“暮光之城”。
還算蠻好看的。除了演員之外﹐景色和歌曲/音樂都很出色。值得捧場﹗
看完戲之後更想看原著小說了﹐相信小說會更加精彩。
已經向圖書館預訂了這本書﹐希望能早日拿到手﹗ 🙂
