In just less than a mth, I was once again posing as an unofficial tour guide to yet another relatives of mine for this xmas season. And the itinerary was 99% same 😛
20 Dec Thurs
Upon their arrival, me, together with 妈咪, brought them to Wongkok Char Chan Teng for a late lunch.
This dunno wat 猪扒包 was very tasty. My fav man! slurp! : P
Some uninteresting dishes ordered by the 3 of them ~_~
小妹 who was working in the region joined us for her late lunch too. Had a taste of her spaghetti which cheesy taste was just nice for my liking : )
One of the items in their agenda for this trip was of course … to see sweetie pie ^____^
21 Dec Fri
After the main item of the trip agenda was settled in Shenton Way, we brought them to Vivo and Harbourfront. I din accompanied them too long cos I was to meet up with SK at Cityhall in the evening for the monologue, First Intimate Contact.
while waiting for SK, I was attracted to a crowd ahead infront of Breaktalk … new gimmick huh …
I have been rushing thru the novel before going for the monologue, but still couldn’t finish it on time 😦
22 Dec Sat
Today is chinese 冬至, a time to gather … and eat 汤圆. It’s oso a day where sweetie pie will be visiting our hse for the first time, and be offering prayers to our ancestors and Goddess of Mercy before his full mth celebration held on the following day.
Last agenda, a trip down to the main xmas atmosphere place … Orchard Road.
大舅 recalled how I used to led a grp of 16 pax (with them inclusive) around, walking from Cityhall to Orchard main road during the xmas season 11yrs ago. Same sentimental, the xmas atmosphere simply diminishing as yrs go by. Somehow, I still like those yrs where there were xmas deco competitions going around. Now it simply seems like shopping malls were putting up season’s deco just for the sake of showing … there was no feel nor creativity in them.

Do you see the different?
