The Best Christmas Gift


Christmas was like 5 days ago, but I just have to brag about the best Christmas gifts I had this year.

Before I proceed, I must admit, this was among the worst ever built up pre-Christmas. I fell ill a couple of days before Christmas, I somehow managed to tear my new NIC jeans at the butt resulting me being ‘jean-less’ through my cousins wedding, and Christmas as I only brought one pair of jeans for the holidays, and I lost my voice 5 days before Christmas. And don’t get me started on my cough 🙁

Thankfully, not all is bad.

For starters, I was awarded a new phone on Christmas eve courtesy of Maxis. Yes, it’s the HTC HD7 phone I’ve been reviewing, and since I love gadgets, the present is most welcomed.

I also finally managed to capture a photo of my grandparents in Bau. As they are camera shy, it was never easy to capture them both in a photo, but I got it!! I’ll develop the photo and frame it! Just so you know, I look up on both my grandparents in Bau, particularly my grandpa who has been through hardship during his younger days, and now lives a life where money is not an issue. Not that he is rich, but he does have money to spend without depending on his children (my aunts and uncles).

Amazingly, despite his age within his 70’s or maybe 80’s, he still goes to the farm and do chores etc as he says he can’t stand staying at home doing nothing. On top of that, he will be a very busy bee looking for fruits (like durian, rambutan, langsat etc) when he knows his grandchildren would be coming home. When he was healthier 5 years ago, he even went out in the middle of the night in search for durians so that when we (his grandchildren) woke up, we’d find tonnes of durian fruits ready to be eaten. Yes, it was still going on despite us all being all grown up, and grandpa never complaints. Grandma is another story. She ‘membebel‘ alot… hahahhah… but yeah, we know she loves us a lot. Here’s a photo of some family =)

Well, that does sum up a fantastic Christmas gift for me, and 2010 has been a great year for myself particularly the last few months.

To everyone, Happy New Year!
