Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hi guys!
Has been a while since i last blog. My finals are comin' up real soon on the 5th Jan and hence having my revision week at the moment. I won't be going back to Malaysia this winter break. Will save up my plane ticket $$ to travel elsewhere for vacation. hehehe. Haven't really decided where...but I'd really love to go to Hong Kong once again tho I've just been there 2 years ago. I still have not finish exploring Ocean Park the last time (due to the crowd)! SoOoo wanna go there again...

Anyways, coming back to Christmas. We had our X'mas Eve celebration at a fancy restaurant serving local dishes. Breath-taking scenery. But the food......*bleks* Surprisingly, the restaurant's business was freaking good (or maybe it's only for that particular night. haha). There were still a long queue of patrons even as late as 9p.m.! We're lucky as one of my friend made an early reservation.

I'm the only Malaysian there and the rest are all Thais. I do feel out of place at times when they start speaking their native language among themselves. But still, they are a fun bunch =)

They are soOoo...cute! haha!

Scenery facing Zhong Shan Lu, a shopping paradise and also the hit spot in Xiamen.
Choco Christmas Tree! A friend's handicraft. Neat ay?

This is one cool cafe. The whole place is so white! absolutely heavenly. Who says we need snow to experience white christmas?

We then had our exchange gift session later that night at our dorm on the 4th floor, also known as a 'Thai village'. This whole level is conquered by their kind. haha! We had a little game before receiving our gifts. Each person's name is written on a piece of paper, folded and inserted into a box. Then we'd need to pick the name, of whose gift we're getting from, from the box. The catch? Beware of getting 'Gan Bei', or 'Bottoms up' in English, mixed among the names in the box. A friend had like 5 glasses of beer before getting his gift. Poor guy. I was lucky. I got a name the first try ^.^V But still they forced me to have a glass before giving me my gift. =.=

That's it for now. Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!
