christmas this year kicked off with a week-long pre-christmas leave from work for me. my friend & i drove up to kundasang on the 19th december 2007 for a 3day/2night trip, mainly to get our grooves back (hehehehehehehe… more pictures to come). upon our return from the trip, i dropped by gaya christmas celebration @gaya street (more pictures too, later).

21st december 2007 – after setting up d’stream’s booth at the gaya christmas celebration, cynthia chia, yeong ying & i went for dinner at a nearby coffee shop. cynthia chia’s seal of approval – two thumbs up for her wat tan hor.

24th december 2007 – christmas eve was spent working in the morning. at night, d’stream had our very own christmas eve celebration – complete with a sedap punya buffet dinner, energetic dance by the youths (no, my bones would creak), a funny but meaningful drama entitled-ah beng comes home, and a balik kampung message by rev. kenneth thien. “why no pictures?”, you asked. and i’d shyly answer, “i brought my slr camera complete with zoom lens, but i neglect the battery.” power or not? *shy* >.<


 25th december 2007 – christmas morning started off with a debate in my mind, whether i should go to d’stream again after last night’s celebration. but i figured, christmas would not be truly christmas if i do not include Christ. after service, i took my parents to four seas @asia city for dimsum.

 and dimsum we had (nah, shing, another place for dimsum the next time that you are back)


 after dimsum, we did a whole lot of walking… from asia city to centre point sabah, to warisan square, and then back to asia city again. as if not enough, we drove to city mall, where we bought 2 dozens of big apple doughnuts. to think that not too long ago, i hand-carried a dozen of these all the way back from kuala lumpur -_-


 later, grocery shopped with parents… and they really took their time in selecting their veggies.


 christmas dinner = the kong family’s traditional leg of lamb, with carefully selected vegies, and pumpkin soup.


t’was a meaningful christmas, albeit quiet…
