A not-so- typical Christmas

It was the 27th, yet my friends are still having friends over for a late Christmas celebration. Got to go to one of my friend's house for food, typical Malay food or what you would find at a gathering: satay, peanut sauce, rendang, sweet sour chicken, mutton curry and lemang. Yummmms ~~ Now that is what I call a feast!

~ Christmas tree ~

Since I have never follow friends out visiting friends during holidays, last year one of my New Year's resolution was to go visiting during the holidays. It was something achievable, something I could actually do and at least say 'I have one under the belt!' proudly. And that I did! I am so proud of myself for accomplishing something I have always failed, year after year. I have visited friends for Chinese New Year, Eid, and now Christmas. I know I am missing a few holidays but that can be improved. :) I have always set out goals and never achieved them. Or sometimes I just forget about them, brush them off, push them under the bed until 24 hours before countdown. Then I'd crawl on my knees, search in vain for the 'list' and realize hey I didn't do any this year. Again.

Ok it is actually not a 'list' but more of a mental thingy... some thing that's always mentally remembered. One of the thing that's been on the 'list' (for 6 years) was to get a boyfriend. I know. So pathetic!XD But it was on there for quite a long time. Like freakin' 6 years! Hell yeah I can cross that out too. I mean, not to sound all desperate or anything, it was something easy achievable mentally challenging and it turned out that it wasn't that hard nor easy. After 6 long years (of not really) searching, I can say I won't be putting that on there ever (hopefully). I have found someone, and I think he is great. :) I know you'd think your significant other is "great" too, but he is great. For me. Cause I have met a few ungreat people in my search for the best possible someone. And I think he surpassed them, by a freakin' lot in terms of zaniness and weirdness. Or maybe I am just easily pleased. (That's what he says! -  anyway, but I like to think as myself as a hard person to please. It gives me power!). I guess the journey to where I am today makes me appreciate the time I've had with myself. With my friends and family. :)

~ Friends for Christmas XD ~

This year, I don't know what I will put under the new year resolution line: will I ask for material things?, power?, money?...I just don't know. :) I want health and prosperity for my friends and family. Maybe some freedom in thinking. :D Or blog a lil more ;). I don't have the most exciting life in the world, unlike some people. :) I am just satisfy with lil things. Maybe I'll travel more...that would be pretty exciting! World, here I come! Orchestra practice has been put on hold, for the last weeks and days before the new year. :)

Who knows, maybe life will bring more surprises in the new year. I know 2009 has been really good to me. :) I am thankful and blessed for everyone that has been in my life, the strangers that has made me happy, that made me laugh. The good and the bad. It is life. It is always there waiting to surprise you. With good things, and bad things. I can't wait go open a new chapter in my life. Move forward...just maybe.. ;).

Happy new year!

Merry Christmas!

....and a happy new year! I think if we had would be about 12 foot by now...I love rain. I would love the snow too. My ultimate dream for next year during this time is to be in Wisconsin with CLK. Hopefully we can celebrate at least one New Year together. That would be wonderful. :)

Happy holidays!

I <3 Jewelries

I know, who in the right mind don't?? CLK knows how much I adore jewelries, especially silvery ones, very exotic and unique and cutesy ones. :D It's in the blood I tell ya. I have come upon this website LuShae Jewelry, and they are giving away some freakin' awesome prize, and use it to buy your own jewelry. :D As you know...jewelries are like trademarks. Everyone has its own style sense and uniqueness. Diamonds, opal, sapphire, pearl...whatever, you name it. :D Jewelries, one of the many best friends I have. (^_~)V

You know it's X-mas when your orchestra practice starts playing the Christmas Song

Yes, it is officially Christmas! Last night we spent 3 hours playing Christmas songs. I get it, it's like 2 weeks before Christmas but well I don't have anything against Christmas I suppose. But I like Christmas songs to be played like in March or June...December is too Christmas-y. I know weird...but we did have fun playing Christmas songs. Songs like Frosty the snowman, Hark the Herald angels sing, O ye faithful (ok I don't know if I spelled it right) and a few other Christmas must-play. I'd put some Christmas songs up but I think it's overrated :P haha.

We did play 3 pieces by Anita Hewitt-Jones. It was fun pieces. I love Ragtime, it just reminds me of fun Autumn evenings, running through the fields...maybe it's just me ;).

Georges Bizet

Georges Bizet's Suite from CARMEN is one of the best pieces I have played as of late, but...I can't find it anywhere (on YouTube!). Maybe I have not been looking properly...but do not fret, I will keep looking...or find another alternative for it. The suite from Carmen comprises of The phantom of the opera and Music of the night, my fave! (Either that or I have the pieces mixed up :P). But I will keep looking.

Other that that, I have some bizarre news I want to share, but not at this moment. I am still thinking on how to go on writing it on paper (haha, paper :P I have not been writing on paper for a while). Been pretty busy lately, since it is Christmas soon, school holiday are such a drag. I want to go to Disneyland!!! (heh out of the blue...)
