Happy Belated New Years Everyone!!!!
Late post! This is going to be a long one haha. December has always been the busiest month for me!
There's Christmas parties, secret Santa events, Christmas day, boxing day, my birthday, new years eve and BOOM New Years Day. Where has all the time gone!?
This December, we had a family reunion (well partly, so hard to get everyone together). At the same time, we celebrated my dearest grandmother's birthday at Mandarin buffet. She loves food, and she can out eat anyone! Love her to death, she is SO cute!
The bf and i had also went to this Christmas market at the Distillery District. There was a lot of beer! A lot of Christmas decorations, a giant tree, booths, and sales indoors. It was overall really festive. Unfortunately it was really cold that night so every few minutes we had to hide inside to keep warm. We didn't stay very long.
My long time friend and her sweetheart recently got engaged and they bought a house together. We had her house warming Christmas party there and we played secret santa as well. I love doing secret santa with them, because we play the Santa steal version, makes it so much exciting!
Come Christmas Day, the bf came over early in the morning to get me out of bed to open presents from under the Christmas Tree. I felt like a kid again, always so happy on that day!
I didn't take pictures of all the gifts i received, but i got some from managers, co-workers, friends and everyone was so thoughtful. I'm really thankful to have known these wonderful people.
The bf got me an iMac! omg i died!
This was very unexpected, and such a wonderful Christmas it is! Best present i can ever receive! Thanks hunnie! He had always been complaining about the PC I've been using, saying how it's slow, noisy and a piece of junk. And me being the non techno nerd, knows nothing about computers...i would never think about buying a new computer myself because well...where do i even start? What am i supposed to look for?
I always wanted an iMac! It's a whole new world to learn but i love playing with photoshop and this will be PERFECT!
We spent Christmas Day together at my place just enjoying each other's company. We made rice crispy squares together, made home made lasagna and watched movies. I wish holidays lasted longer :(
Boxing day was a huge dissapointment for me. I went to a big mall with my friend and we shopped for nearly the entire day but there wasn't a lot of good deals going on, just lots and lots of people. All i got were a pair of wedges and a bag full of anti bacterial hand soap from bath and body (50% OFF). Dissapointed!
I'll update you guys on my Birthday next =)
Happy belated New Years once again. Chinese New Years is coming up soon, how many of you celebrate? I know for my family Chinese New Years is much bigger for them than Jan 1st New Years.
