I had a few craft projects during Christmas, and one of them was flag stockings! I found this New Zealand flag stocking in Auckland, and it gave me the idea to have stockings with flags of all the countries I’ve lived in and am from. I chose the old Japanese flag because it has a bigger design that covers more of the stocking. I quite like it! When I have some free time, I’ll start working on the Singapore and America (for Kendon) ones!
I met Zhazira in 2009 when I was in Kazakhstan for exchange. She was going to come to Singapore the following semester. Somehow though, we never hung out after that one meeting. Which is a bit of a pity, because we become good friends when we were in Singapore! She comes back to visit every few years, and we always try to meet up. I hope that Kendon and I will get to go and visit her in Kazakhstan one day!
Gorgeous flower decorations for Christmas all over Orchard Road
We got all dressed up in red and green for Christmas, and had a yummy dinner at Southwest Tavern with some friends. Here’s a family picture!
Being silly with my loves
We had such a yummy dinner with Perry and Don. And we had a dish called Beer Butt Chicken on the house!! It literally is a beer butt chicken, the chicken was cooked with a can of beer shoved, I mean placed in its butt. It was pretty funny heehee! And quite yummy!
Don has served at Moulmein church for several years, and he finally made the decision to leave and go back to the Philippines. We spent his last few weeks here hanging out, playing mahjong and eating good food. A group of us sent him off with prayers and love. We hope to visit him someday soon in the Philippines!
Cedric and Nic visited Singapore for a day and we took them out sightseeing. We went to see the famous merlion, then walked along the river past the Esplanade theatres, down the double helix bridge to Marina Bay Sands, then on to the Gardens by the Bay. It’s always good to catch up with old friends.
