Ho Ho Ho.. Merry Christmas!! ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ‰

Good morning Dayre!!

Merry Christmas everybody!!

How are you spending your Christmas Day? ๐Ÿ˜„

For those who went out partying last night, hope you have had a great time counting down. โ˜บ๏ธ

Heard the weather in Sg was not too well on X'mas eve, pouring heavily there.

It's super duper warm in Penang though so we spent most of the time just chilling at home. ๐Ÿ˜

My Christmas Eve

Started our Christmas Eve morning with a morning movie.

No prizes for guessing right which movie we went for hahaha ๐Ÿ˜†

We must have attracted some stares from passerby but we didn't really care haha

My whole family is crazy over "this" now.. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

Even the youngest one got affected by the craze ๐Ÿ˜†

They deserted the F1 sports cars I got for them the moment they saw these.. Tsk tsk..

Still can't let go of the lightsaber when he's a communist soldier ๐Ÿ˜…

Managed to complete my Christmas shopping on the eve. Phew!

Ya, talk about last minute. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

I got lazy this year and didn't even bother to wrap up some of the pressies. Oops ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

We had a cosy dinner at home with homecooked food prepared by my SIL and mum while we were out shopping.

Too bad both me and sis weren't competent enough to inherit my grandma's and mum's ๅฎถไผ ่œ. ๐Ÿ˜…

This is a dish which was passed down from generations. Apparently it has to be cooked only with a certain of fish to acquire the desired pungent.

Love this dish btw, it's been ages since I last ate this. Good that my SIL has mastered this dish now. ๐Ÿ˜

Gotta be super patient to eat this though as this type of fish has lots of tricky bones. ๐Ÿ˜…

I was very disciplined to wait till midnight to unwrap these. ๐Ÿ˜

Still have some to unwrap when I'm back in Singapore. ๐Ÿ˜

Christmas Day

Christmas is all about feasting isn't it!!

Gotta go get ready for our nyonya lunch later!! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Nyonya cuisine plays a big part in the food we ate since we were young as my grandma and my mum are pure nyonyas.

I'm only a 50% nyonya, truly a failed one as I can't bake, I can't sew and I can't cook. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

Loving my new watch strap.

Thanks @twentietwosteps for your recommendation! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

My two nieces donny their reindeer hair band. ๐Ÿ˜

ๆˆ‘ไนŸๅ‡‘ไธ€ไธ‹็ƒญ้—น๐Ÿ˜†

Bet she will be taller than me by next Christmas ๐Ÿ˜…

New kicks

Lunch venue!

Here's the addy!!

Our Christmas lunch! ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ

Spotted a street mural..

Some of our nyonya spread!! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

The twins were mesmerized by the reindeer too.

Do I look like a reindeer now? ๐Ÿ˜†

Such a challenge to get everyone to look at my phone ๐Ÿ˜…

Omg!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Guess how much this is?

It's only RM39!!

It's the last pair on display..

Another design which I also liked. Slightly more ex.. RM59.

Originally RM239. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

@twentietwosteps Star Wars plushie keychains, u want? ๐Ÿ˜

Been eating this pineapple soft serve from Mac everyday since I'm back here. No llao llao so this will make do. ๐Ÿ˜†

It's super super nice and rather addictive. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ They finally have the red cone for us today. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Time for a coffee break with the sis. โ˜•๏ธ

Caramel Latte for me and sis ordered the Drink of the Day – Peanut Butter Scotch Latte which said was pretty awesome.

Sounds damn heaty to me. This is something which I need to analyse before I put anything to my mouth for now ๐Ÿ˜…

Quite a unique cafe with some industrial chic element.

Quite an innovative way of using a ladder for a second use.

See.. It's really a ladder ๐Ÿ˜‰

They sell some pretty interesting furniture too.

This is selling at RM2900.

They have a smaller version too, going at RM1500. I still prefer the earlier version though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Had our Christmas dinner at a little restaurant which we had patroned since we were still a kid.

It's still as nolstagic as before.

Very simple homecooked dishes.. But they never fail to disappoint us.

Business is still as brisk as before.

A few volunteers came into the restaurants to sell roses for charity.

Today happened to be my bro's 18th anniversary so the roses came in handy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Three years ago on my birthday, my second bro chose to hold his wedding.

So the roses came in handy again.

As you can see, December is really a very celebratory month for my family. ๐Ÿ˜†

Kids nowadays.. Tsk tsk. @chloeyingen

If I have my own kid one day, I shall advocate no gadgets during dining time, well at least only for photography (cos I can't eat without taking pic of my food ๐Ÿ˜†), no games or cartoon for sure.

Caught hold of this grandma-grandsons moments after dinner ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Very rare moment for my mum as she only gets to see them every few months time.
