Christmas 2008

This year's Christmas was eventful. There were plenty of gatherings with family and friends. However, somehow the mood seems to be less festive than previous years. I think maybe it's the current state of the economy, or maybe its because I am in the middle of working on a tender...

24 Dec (Christmas Eve)
There were some plans for "snaking" but most of us in the office (CPO) were invited to a corporate Christmas Lunch which was held at a restaurant in VivoCity. The food was good but the quantity not really enough. Not everyone had a chance to go for seconds. Anyway, as with any "standard" corporate lunch, there were games and prizes and also a gift exchange. Exchanged my Ferrero Rochers for box of biscuits ...

25 Dec (Christmas Day)
We postponed our Christmas BBQ to Sat, so today was a simple dinner at another cousin's place where we exchanged and opened presents for the kids.

26 Dec (Boxing Day)
Today is family day. Yes, a day for just the three of us. We mostly relaxed at home and went out for some shopping, dinner and also attempted to walk a bit of Orchard Road to look at the lights and decor. Unfortunately, it was hot, crowded and very super noisy with all the street performances and DJ music, so we only made it to the stretch in front of Takashimaya before we gave up...

27 Dec (Sat)
Two gatherings today, one for lunch and one for dinner. Lunch is at wifey's friend's place and dinner is a BBQ at my cousin's place. It was pretty much a huge logistics operation bringing the boy out for almost the whole day. The car was fully loaded with presents, baby essentials such as food, milk, diapers etc, and even his bathtub/basin and baby monitor were not left idle at home. What a tiring day!

28 Dec (Sun)
It's back to work tomorrow, but today, it is still the long weekend. Lunch was out with some of wifey's friends at a family friendly restaurant in United Square (GlobeTrotters). Got to get myself back into gear to clear up most of the work required for the current tender that I am working on. Only then can I enjoy the New Year and be less stressed.

Spicy Noodles

This is absolutely THE spiciest instant noodles I have ever come across in Singapore. If you want to try, the only place I know where you can get it is in a provision shop in Tangling Halt.

Cayden's Diary: 7 months

The little boy is growing fast. He is coming to 7 months and has finally achieved his first mobility milestone ...

Last week, I was in San Diego when I received news from wifey that the boy has "discovered" crawling! I was excited. When I can back, he was really doing it. Today, he crawled towards the walker and started climbing, and he managed to get himself up into a standing position! I guess his legs are well conditioned to support his weight from the endless hours of jumping up and down.

San Diego Arrival

After more than 20 hours on the road, finally arrived at San Diego via San Francisco. By the time we drove up to the hotel, it was already 5pm. Post check-in, we went to a nearby mall at La Jolla Village Drive for dinner.

Dinner was a huge burrito. After that the weather got pretty cold and foggy, so we went back to our comfortable rooms. Attached are some photos of the room itself.
