a Big thank you to Sarah for setting up our Christmas tree..

the Guardian of the food - especially his skillful slicing of the cold ham and Roasted chicken

 Finally its present time.....
little YZ first to be called.....

and again 

showoff  your acting talents please! 

For Jason, its time to de-stress before his wedding 

Lovey dovey Santa and hubby

Everyone has been good and therefore deserve a pressie from Santa.... from the young Ivan to

Grandma Aunty... 
and the gals of course!
Mr  and Mrs Lee were back from UK and were able to join us for the season

Santa Claus with Diana (best pals since school days)


This was our Charity box.
We decided that in lieu of presents, we can make donations for charity.

So we  had  2 games-

an  auction where we start bidding to get someone to do ........


Yes, Qi the highest bidder  - RM13.00

She appointed Ging to whisk an egg white with the mini whisk and to hold it upside down over her!

And of course the perennial favourite - Musical Chair - only the one ousted will have to pay a dollar!


Its so fun to watch them ...


and he is always the winner... no joke from his kiddy day till now!
and he got to donate double anyway..hahaha 

Total collection RM101.00 and my sister May topped it up with another RM100.00... big round of applause for everyone who participated!  It was a good opportunity to show the young kids to do charity!      

Before and now - 18 years ago.....

Cute little angels had grown to beautiful young adults
Of course Santa also grown older or at least her beard has grown longer!

We sisters also had  a similar photo!


Meanwhile over in Sydney, Jeremy's Christmas party  and

his Roasted Turkey!

We had such a  happy time together  and 2 days later we had another awesome celebration,  Jason's wedding to end the year..

Wishing everyone a Blessed Happy New Year.
