xmas/nye update

23rd december 2004

henry (my housemate) and i organised a small christmas dinner party on the 23rd that went out of control -- out of control in that we prepared for 8-10 ppl, and 19 ppl turned up >_< but thats alright, there was plenty to eat despite henry's consistent nagging about not having enough food.

we also had a gift exchange under £5. i think i easily had the best present ever. here is a picture of it.


more pics available from my new and improved experimental photo album.

24th december 2004

henry and i spent the day cleaning up the house, ok, actually i spent the day cleaning up the house and henry came back to cook me dinner like a good single mother would. manfred and carmen came all the way from london to spend some quality time together (with/without us.) they bought us twister so that we can embarass people with an excuse next time we have a party.

25th december 2004

i discovered that the couch was quite a nice place the sleep. we ended up watching 3 movies, played twister and basically making a fool of ourselves. if you want to see the pics, you'll have to buy us a game next time you come and see us. we also installed our first "collaborative art installation" in our house. it consists of 2 rulers up one of the walls, and everyone who comes to our house has to have their height recorded and they get to exercise their origami skills and blu-tac-fu.


we have a wonderful dinner involving sweet corn and fish! hurray for henry! btw, we watched house of flying daggers -- very good movie, if you enjoyed hero, you'd enjoy this too.

muhahaha .. manfred and carmen were stuck in cambridge because in UK, trains don't run on 25th/26th! what kind of country is this? geeez .. they buy us pizza in return for a bed to stay another night. i complete my hat-trick of couch sleeping. we end up watching the last samurai in an unbelievable tale where maverick goes and seduces the wife of another samurai who he killed.

had a small hotpot with 4 ppl -- end up playing monopoly where i win! my 2004 new years resolution of winning a game of monopoly was completed 15 minutes before 12am. was actually quite subdued affair, ended up surviving till quite late.
