So! i don't want to let this day pass without extending my warmest greetings (though it's literally freezing outside!) I realized it's been more than a month since my last post and i swear! we seriously have A LOT of catching up to do (well, at least between me and those who are regularly visiting.hehe) But let's just save it for later, shall we?

It's my third christmas here and this is the first time that I wasn't able to prepare anything for our noche buena:( I got home from work 9:30pm and I was sooo tired that I didn't feel like cooking anymore. LUCKILY, and to my surprise, Asul (who, i must admit, is "learning" pretty fast *wink*) bought this adorable Christmas cake from Paris Baguette.

I've long been finding some 'excuse' to buy this kind of cake since I saw the one Cher gave Jehan for her baby shower.hehe (nainggit?lol) It's pretty expensive you know. Not the type that you can buy cos of whim.kkk But NOW it turned out, i don't need any excuse anymore:) The downside though is that I found it hard to actually eat it cos I was only like staring at it the whole time.Heh! And Asul and I were like arguing who's gonna dig in first cos neither of us wanted to!LOL

And before midnight, I called my family back home and I was sooooo envious they were having such a great time and I wondered when I'd be with them on this holiday. *sniff*

But then, a post from FB reminded me something. It's not MY birthday. It's Jesus Christ's special day. And though it's important for families to be together, the true essence of CHRISTmas is Jesus Christ...the realization of God's promise to us. and HE should be the center of today's celebration ^^

And so! Happy CHRISTmas everyone!
