Merry Xmas 2010!
It's Christmas Eve today. How time flies, last year at this time, we had CL to make a really nice Xmas Eve western dinner for us. We were too late to preorder festive roasts so we went to NTUC in the afternoon to try our luck. Lucky for us, we managed to buy the last turkey with stuffing they had at $59.90. Decided to bake some potatoes and make a simple salad of assorted vegetables with yuzu citrus sauce (french beans, pumpkin, carrot, baby corn) so that it's a more nutritious complete meal. Raelynn has already eaten her porridge but since it is Xmas, I let her try the vegetables and turkey. We still have lots of turkey left so tomorrow there'll be turkey porridge or turkey sandwich. ;)
As per tradition, we gathered round the Xmas tree and opened our presents. To me, Xmas is not a religious event cos even schools and companies celebrate Xmas through xmas parties and gift exchange. It's an occasion to gather with the family and express our love for one another through presents. After all, who doesn't like presents? kekeke.
RaeAnne got a big fire engine with doors that can open (as she requested the door must open), and Raelynn a set of plastic bowling pins. As usual, the gals always seem to like each other's present better. Duh. I got 2 books and a computer game for hubby since I didn't wake up in time to queue for the iphone4 at Hello shop. Wnated to get the iphone4 Hubby got me 2 robin blue boxes to my surprise cos he said one was for our wedding anniversary and one for Xmas. :) Even the maid is happy cos she got 2 shirts, 1 pair of shoes and 1 hair scrunchie from us. This was on top of the 5+kg airmail box of goodies which we paid for her to send back to Philippines.
