Ya know, with all the Yuletide season and the Christmas cheers, how can I not share with you the Christmas 2008 ala yours truly? CHRISTMAS WITH THE FOCKERS (MY FAMILY) has beaten all the other posts to make its way right here for your reading pleasure.
Okay so for those of you who have been asking where KayElle Episode Two is, I’ve got ONE THING for you –
The Lutheran church nearby held this massive Christmas dinner and booked the entire upper sanctuary of Ocean View Chinese Restaurant. Not wanting to miss out on the community happenings, our fammy joined in as well.
Dinner was great, except for the part when the emcee gave thanks and said their grace in Mandarin before we began our meal. Hmm.. the only part I managed to grasp was ‘Gan Xie Ye Su’. LOL Yeah, sadly… I’m a semi-banana. So, I gave my thanks in English instead. Hmm… =/
There’s just this odd thing with me and lucky draws. In almost all the dinners or lunches my fammy and I attend, I’d be bound to win something in some lucky draw. Just like the one [here] during this year’s Easter Celebration. Weird, no?

Looks like I’m a lucky charm? >_<
Nah. Coincidence strikes.
Meet the fockers – the wackiest blood-peeps on earth!!!
Apart from having Christmas dinners with the manymanyitsybitsycommunity, our fammy had our warm mini-gathering by ourselves too, right in the comfort of home just like every year.
Oh and, for the fun of it, check out 2006 and 2007’s Christmas piccies.
This year, it’s slightly of a smaller scale compared to year 2001-2007.
In fact, we chose to make a simple dinner at home and hangout at Rum Jungle instead.
Ta-daa! Uncle Mike’s barbequed black pepper chicken with i-have-no-idea-what-it’s-called-but-it-sure-as-hell-tastes-fabulous-stew-like thingy.
Another round of drinks please! Ahh.. look how proudly my bottle of 42Below Vodka stands the tallest amongst Uncle Mike’s Jack Daniels, Wild Africa, Martini & Chivas ^_^
A gift from Aunt YiLing, thanks yaw!
The Canning Garden folks are came over last night and so did couzzies Nick & Adeline; they came back from Australia! Woots!
It’s a pity Samantha and Krizzy couldn’t make it. *stares*
(I know you’re reading this Kriz)
Oh but the countdown was still special to me. We sang ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ throughout the countdown of Christmas day! *bigsmiles* ♥♥ And I can remember all the lyrics to that song now~! ^_^
It’s really an upbeat and classy place to chill just so you know ^_^
And the food is not too bad as well.
Oh and *ahem* ladies being ladies as usual… compulsory camwhore piccies! Yeahhh!!
Uncle Mike, Couzzie Meng & Shaun and I headed towards the bar area to grab a few breathers and a couple of cocktails.
uncle mike a.k.a the coolest uncle on earth & I
All in all, we enjoyed the evening away; every single one of us… with loved ones and fammy peeps. My Christmas has always been this way and still, always will for the many years to come! ♥ HO HO HO!
