Family Christmas

Before I show you pics of my holiday, many of you are wondering what GB got me. It was a box of Christmas cookies and chocolates from Royce. :) I opened them before Christmas, because I got impatient. haaa I got him underwear and a hot water bottle with a knit sweater thingy on it which said J'Adore. Very cute. When he first opened his present, (he said) he looked at it for a few minutes wondering if it were a hat. LoL But the best part is, he's using this hotwater bottle in bed at night to keep warm now in the winter. :)
-----------------------
Desaru over Christmas...
My brother Wesley drove the family up to Desaru on Christmas eve. (It was his first time driving overseas!). We took 2.5 hours to get there from Pasir Ris(Singapore), we got lost quite a bit.
.
Why your road signs to fucked up, Malaysia? Like after you go past the damn turn, then the sign for that exit pops up. Kinda mocking you.. like -"Hello There :) Kota Tinggi Was the exit you Just passed 3 seconds ago. Oh, was that the one you were looking out for? Oh well, too bad you stinking Singaporean. Selamat datang ke Malaysia!"
.
But once we got familiar with the roads, we sped along and it only took like 1 hour to drive back from Desaru to Woodlands check point! Take THAT Malaysian highway!
.
We stayed at the Lotus Desaru Beach Resort. I think it's not bad.. it cost about RM2100... so that's just under 1K Singapore dollars, for 2 nights accomodation. ( And that's for 3 rooms, btw). Plus it included an obligatory Christmas buffet dinner. Good deal for the Christmas season.The food and drinks... as with most resort hotels in Malaysia... was so-so. Like I have it for a few days, but any longer, and it would be torture. There's only so much turkey bacon and chicken sausages I can eat!!!
They had my fav oysters... and sashimi too... but not fresh tasting at all. :( It's a huge resort with 3 pools, and also a water theme park (which I didn't use because it was crowded like hell).
This paint splatter play dress I am wearing is from Linadelee. It's has denim blue splashes of colour and it's so comfy. Me Loves it! They also have more dressy party pieces in their Festive Collection (Click). (Join their FB page too )
We had our Christmas eve dinner together, which was very nice. I missed dinner with my family last Christmas because I was in Phuket with Mark.
Desserts were fabuloussssss.... Christmas pudding.. and all sorts of sweet delights for meeeee.
My toiletries bag...sunglasses... and spectacles...
Despite it being the monsoon season, the weather held up really well. Clear blue skies and cool breezy sunny days.The blue resort pants I am wearing are from Riot Loco. They also have it in other colours (click here). But I like the blue ones best... very relaxed feel to them, I also roll up the cuffs/hem a bit.
.
The white over sized t-shirt also from them. They have many unique pieces. Join RiotLoco on FB.

My brother and I coordinated our outfits on Christmas day. haha...
But his was from topshop and cotton on.
Was such a quick, but nice getaway.

Now... for New Year's! I hope 2011 will be a better year for me than 2010. The first 3quarters for 2010 was quite rough. :( And the very last ending bit of 2010.. not fantastic either. Fingers crossed, I will find my way. I hope you will too.

(Happy New Year to you)

    I distinctly remember you saying that mid-riff baring was one of the worst fashion mistakes you made at 18 yrs old...

  5. yup. I did say tht. But if u look at the pic in tht post... I was going partying all the time bearing my mid-riff from my nipples to my hips! haa

    Not all midriff bearing is bad... and it's not like NO FLESH should ever be shown there so I will safety pin my shirts to my pants. :)

    Slutty midriff bearing is not my thing anymore. :)
