1) Food. I know Christmas conjures up memories of low-grade buffets and tough turkey meat for some people, but for me it's a time for feasting on delicious food. Maybe it's because my family nearly always spends Christmas with relatives in Malaysia, who'd provide good food for us. My mum's roast turkey is divine. And any leftover turkey is used to cook turkey porridge. Mmmm... my mouth is watering by just thinking about it.
2) Company. It feels perfectly natural to get together with family, friends and relatives during Christmas time. An elaborate party setting is not even required.
3) Shopping. Somehow the phrase 'Christmas shopping' appeals to me, even if I'm not shopping for gifts. Any purchase for myself is excusable- it's Christmas after all! Everyone's on a high and that means retail indulgence.
4) Outfits. Christmas is an excuse to wear pretty, glittery outfits. No outfit is too shiny/ glitzy/ extravagant. It's all part of the festive mood.
5) Christmas cards. I enjoy making and sending out Christmas cards. Unfortunately it's not something I'm able to do every year. Some people find the whole process of writing and sending cards tedious and contrived, but I think it won't be so if it's for those that one truly cares about. Besides, nothing beats the feeling of receiving mail on Christmas Day, and opening the envelope to find a beautiful card. It makes one feel appreciated.
Most of all...
6) the Festive Spirit. Isn't it contagious?

It was raining later that day, as you may observe in some of the photos.
I'll be going to Malaysia to visit relatives this Friday, and will be staying there till 1 Jan. I may find time to blog there. I'll show you the stuff I'm packing for this trip sometime tomorrow.

I like looking at fall collections to see how layering can be done. Unfortunately with Singapore's tropical climate layering is not very feasible :( Still I can at least try it in the confines of my room. In the photos I'm wearing three layers on top- a long-sleeved floral-printed top, a brown silky shirt over that, and finally a short-sleeved white crochet cardigan to top it off. Frankly I hardly wear this pink skirt because pink, especially this shade of pink, is not really my thing. It was my sis who bought it for very cheap. I think she likes the dusky hue but if I want to wear pink I'd wear a bright, clear pink.
I included that stupid photo in the middle because it's the only one that shows my hair from the side. And the last photo with my sis is for length comparison. The guy from my japanese class can say that "guys like girls with long hair" but I don't care, I think I look better with short hair. A bit boyish I suppose but cute.

I thought it was not bad considering that I haven't used charcoal for about a year-and-a-half. Then we went to Little India, Chinatown and Bugis area today to take photos. It started raining halfway, though, so we bought nail polish from Watson's and sat down to paint our nails in alternating colours of hot pink and yellow :) FUNKYYY.
