day 501 – execs unite

image

hungry executives celebrating the completion of season 18 at water kitchen in gastown. vdl’s human resources surprised us all with christmas presents, as each of us was rewarded with a pair of the newest vdl apparel personalized with our own initials. must admit i am relieved that we are at the season’s end because this season has been really stressful balancing out all my commitments and tasks, i really need the extra time just to get away from my neverending commitments

day 497 – poinsettia

image

what’s with these red and greens coming into the office today? that’s when you know christmas holidays is just around the corner because december tends to be a very quick month and christmas rushes upon us. bringing in the poinsettia to fill the space with more red and greens to make it more vibrant and brighten the pale white walls. i am not a fan of these things because it requires cleaning up after dead and dried leaves

day 150 – house party

image

hosting annual christmas house party with the main focus on my mom’s top notch turkey stuffed with fried rice that never disappoints. this year we also prepared a lot of other delicious dishes most notably rosemary garlic steak, smoked salmon cream cheese bread, homemade mashed potatoes and cream of mushroom soup. spoiled with so much good food throughout the holiday season

day 148 – stanley park

image

unlike the typical boxing day, much of my activity did not take place early in the morning door crashing and fighting with thousands of others at malls but rather at night in a calm outdoor at stanley park. enjoyed a lovely night out eating japanese delicacy, visiting bright nights and wandering around downtown

day 138 – love by airmail

image

big thanks my good friend in hong kong, i received your parcel today with much heartfelt love. i am so glad we still keep in touch even when we are separated by miles of seas and oceans. i am even more happy you are coming home for christmas so team underconstruction can chill during the festive season

day 129 – holiday spirit

image

my christmas tree is finally up in my living room, after spending the entire night setting up my tree and putting decorations all over my house. with all the colourful blinking lights and sparkling ornaments i feel the christmas season has arrived and already feel the warmth emitted

day 128 – christmas chocolates

image

the first feeling of christmas season when i receive my first chocolate gifts that’s red and green. the more sweets i receive, the more sugar  goes into my stomach and that can’t be a good thing cause i have no self control. i am a stubborn chocolate eater, i stick with the basics and actually have no interest for the expensive fancy stuff
