2007-12-29 Enjoying the Breeze
Yesterday was a real warm day.
So warm that even Kimba didn't want to go for a walk.
So we took him for a car ride instead.
Here he is poking his head out of the back seat window, enjoying the nice breeze :-)

2007-12-28 Off Duty Reindeer
I am finally off duty.
Yes. Christmas is over and I am over Christmas.
All the presents. All the people. I am just exhausted entertaining everyone!
Do I have to do this all over again next year? :-)

A few friends came over to celebrate Chrissy.
One of them is a baker (ain't i lucky!) and made a cheesecake for desert.

2007-12-26 Sticky Rice Balls
Last Saturday (22nd December) was the Winter Solstice Festival.
It's funny because it's summer time here in Australia but we are celebrating the first day of Winter? Yeah, it doesn't quite make sense to me either lol.
Anyway, one of the traditional activities that occurs on this day is making and eating of sticky rice balls.
No we didn't go through the trouble of making them because you can buy these so conveniently nowadays... these were bought from the shops - there were peanut fillings and also sesame fillings.
Wikipedia has a pretty good blurb on Winter Solstice Festival, click here

I dont think I've ever been so looking forward to Christmas.
Just the prospective of getting away from all the boring work stuff.

2007-12-15 Christmas Party
Last night was my workplace's Christmas Party.
14 of us decided to go all glam & rock-star like and hired a stretch hummer to take us around town.
it would have to be one of those experiences i would never forget. 'awesome' is not even close to describing it.
A few sore heads today I am sure...

Scavenger Hunt & Kris Kringle afternoon @ Work.
The final social event of the year organised by the Social Committee.
So as part of the Scavenger Hunt, we had to walk ALL THE WAY up to Ridge Street to get a photo of this view.
Dont think the other teams can beat our group with my 200mm lens (as they were all using camera phones!) :p

She was the support act for JT's SexyBack concerts here in Australia.
Didn't know who she was but she was pretty good.
And JT was just AWESOME! :-)
My ears are still ringing. It's 12:45am on a working day.
I really should be in bed.
Here is one of JT :)
