a Big thank you to Sarah for setting up our Christmas tree..
she bought the lights, put it up, draw the decoration herself and even manage to dig out the old photographs

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.

Aunty always look forward to this annual charity carnival and I was glad  to accompany her to the House of Joy Charity Carnival which was held at the MPSJ in Bandar Kinrara.     

Sam "kor" Wanton Mee.
Sam is Aunty's son as well a faithful member of the church.  Every year he could close his own busines and move the stall here for the day.  In fact most of the food stalls... there is nasi lemak, burgers, Assam Laksa Mee, satay, ice kachang etc were all manned by the members of the church and workers as well.  

Wanton mee with Black Soya Sauce Chicken and Fried wanton.... yummylicious!

There were singing performances, dances by kids  to entertain the visitors while doing their shopping.
The food stalls were all located outside and you can dine in coolness of the vast hall and then enjoying some shopping around the hall as well. The kids from the orphanage were on hand to clear the plates and keep the tables clean... good job!  

some of the cute key-chains .... all handmade.
There are stalls selling stationaries as well as pre-loved clothings.  However we were unable to fully utilised the RM300 coupons which my brother had bought and whatever balance was given to Sam kor and his helpers.    

My brother and aunty having a chat with the Pastor. We came to know the Home through Sam Kor and my brother has helped to furnish the Home with his stainless steel kitchen equipment before.  And actually we are related by the maternal side....we are his uncle and aunty......... it's a small world after all, so let peace and joy reign this festive season!
