Jolly Christmas at the Yoon Residence.

I love Christmas.
I simply think that it is the best time of the year!
The perfect excuse to round family and friends up and pig our hearts out!

Kids have the best imagination ever!
Our DIY Christmas Tree

Look at all those wonderful presents beneath it!

Garlic Bread 
Made with home made garlic spread.
This recipe is a keeper.
All my guest were asking for the recipe after the party!

This soup was done due to popular demand from last Christmas.

Baked Potato with Bosin Herb Cheese
(reads: FAT, FAT, FAT...)

Mint Pork Kebab with Zucchini

BBQ, Singaporean HDB style!
(thank god no one called the fire department!)
Surprising, the BBQ was very well received with our guest!

Salad is kindly sponsored by the Chan family.

Yet another "reunion" wedding dinner.....

I got to know Peggy when we were all preparing for Daphne's wedding.
She was among the evil "sisters" who tortured poor Armand and his "brothers".
Yet again I felt that it was the perfect reunion 
I wonder who is going to be next?!?!?!?

Totally love the table gifts!
Pretty & Practical!
(A blank key with the double happiness logo on top)

The pretty bride Peggy & Myself

Peggy and the very talented groom; Rane.

Hiroshi's playmate for the night!
Manohar, thanks for keeping him entertained....

Yet another grand reunion pitcure.
Hiroshi looking pretty washed out,
coz he's half way to lala land!

Many thanks to "uncle" Benjamin for picking the kids up from school 
and keeping them entertained.

Lastly, this is to wishing the couple,
百年好合, 早生贵子!!!

Party Animals.....

The last time I partied this much has to be slightly more than a decade ago!
And since age is catching up,
I think we've over stretched ourselves!

First stop, ZOUK.
Yeah... I know what you're thinking!
("Ain't you a lil too old for mambo jumbo?!?!?")
And we did the UNTHINKABLE,
We brought our 2 kids along!
instead of Vodka Orange and Long Island Tea....
We were served free flow of juice all afternoon long!

It was awesome!
Hiroshi even met Santa Clause 
and told him that he's been good and he can't wait!

Next stop,
Oceanus Christmas Party.

We've always been active members of our community
by joining many of their organized activities.
When our neighbour,
Mr and Mrs Santosh came knocking door to door
selling the Christmas tickets,
We bought 4.

The kids totally enjoyed themselves.
Another great party!

Well, the highlight of the even has to be the lucky draw!
Although, the prizes were not very "fantastic",
Our family got 1st and 2nd prize in the lucky draw!
Honestly, what are the chances of that happening?!?!?!?!?
Almost close to NEVER!
OMG.... This has to be the sign that we are heading into a BETTER new year!

Both kids delighted that they have won something!!!

Wishing all readers Merry Christmas & a Superb New Year ahead!!!
HUAT arr!!!

Annual Class Photos 2010

I swear that each time my kids come home 
with the annual class photo consent form,
I cringe at the idea of OVER PAYING for a piece of photograph 
with fancy backdrops and boarders.....
But, when I receive the photographs at the end of the day,
the unconscious mind will console the nagging wallet 
that it was money well spent.
Look at all these precious memories......


For the 1st time in my life; I actually WON something!!!!!

We won ourselves 2 tickets to walking with dinosaurs organised by sg marketing.

I am extremely excited.
And, I'm sure the kids would be too!

Ever since watching the makings of walking with dinosaurs on okto,
the kids and myself has been dying to catch this dinosaurs thingy LIVE!

I have to honestly admit that I am a dimwit
when it comes to naming all these dinosaurs.
But, I'm sure after watching this show, 
I'll have a wreath of knowledge on these majestic creatures 
whom have roam the surface of earth many million years ago....

*keeping my fingers and toes crossed*
after winning these tickets....
My chance of winning anything & everything will greatly improve...

HongKong Disneyland

We totally ENJOYED Hongkong Disneyland.
In fact, we love it so much that
I am writing a slightly longer post to redress an injustice
regarding the reputation of HongKong Disneyland.....

Myth No. 1
Child kidnapping/ Mainland Chinese trying to sell you their kid...
*I can put my head on the line for this one!
No one tried to kidnap my kids (maybe they ain't cute enoff),
nor did anyone try to sell me their kids!*
It was a safe environment for your kids to fun free!

Myth No. 2
The park is too small!
We had 2 fast pass(for Golden Mickey & Lion King),
ran from one ride to the other,
used our time damn efficiently
and yet, we could not even complete on all the rides in the park!

Myth No. 3
Park is crowded with Mainland Chinese lying & sitting around 
with their infamous spitting habits!
I have to agree that there were many Mainland Chinese,
but they were just visiting the park like any other tourist, like you and me...
I haven't seen any trying to spit on the floor.
Thou, one has SNEEZE OPENLY without covering this nose and mouth!

My compilation of die die must go attraction....

-"Festival of Lion King"

-Mickey's PhilharMagic
-"The Golden Mickey"
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

-Stitch Encounter
-Buzz Lightyear Blasters

Please do not be dampen by negative reviews about this park...
Go experience and enjoy the park like we did!
