Under my Christmas tree.

Everybody loves gifts! I promised to share what I bought this year and honestly, it's been a long time since I had a tree filled with Christmas presents at home. This year was special to me because not only is it hard to find time to meet everybody I want to see..it was almost impossible to gather people because everyone is elsewhere somewhere. 

This Christmas was one rare occasion when I could spend time with my dearest ones and close friends. 

 Christmas tree at home. Before that..


1) Secret Santa


We started off with a potluck over at Tim's and had our regular "secret santa" amongst our office colleagues. I was really glad when I picked my santee's name. 

1) I've known him for years 2) He's like my little brother that I want to protect and care for

I thought it would be easy shopping for a gift but it wasn't at all. He's a passionate person who is also very talented. So I got him these:





And he's none other than Luke :) glad he likes it! 

Cassie and I also made some truffles for potluck. It was half day in our office so we headed home and started making and "baking".

Cassie and I

My secret Santa was Nick Tee, and he got me a lovely make-up set from Sephora hee =D

Too Faced.



2) Company Annual dinner



Oh how the company has grown! Looking forward to our company trip in mid January :D



3) Christmas party at home

I spent a bomb shopping for gifts this month. But all was worth it, I was excited looking forward to catching up with all my high school, college, and childhood friends.

And little Phoebe too.

<3

Look what we got John for this Christmas:

 Hot and cold massager cum monkey :D perfect gift that he'd love
 

You guessed right, I got this Esprit sling bag for Shaz think it's perfect for work and play :)


Bought Charmaine a Sephora lipgloss (couldn't resist the packaging) and a Primark wallet


Also bought a lot of random gifts consisting of items like pingpong bat, shoe rack, etc. for guests that night plus we also had a mini gift exchange

Digital camera for dad, it will come in handy when he travels and goes for his tournaments

4) Housewarming and karaoke at Aunty's

 My Aunty Clara and Aunty Doris :D damn happening.

My cousin, Janice and I

 The rest of us cousins, it was so rare that we could meet because some are in Dubai, Indonesia, and all around :) so glad we made it and met.

My soon to wed cousin, Kyvern and fiancee, Pam.



My cousin and mother of my favourite nephew, Kristie :D



What a good way to end the year. 2011 has been a great year for me, though a couple of hiccups, ups and downs, I carry with me the faith and that everything will fall into place again. I hope you guys had a wonderful year and Christmas.

Cheers to an even better year, 2012, please be good to me :D

Happy New Year guys and to my readers, thank you for reading.
