It's all about receiving!

Year 2010 has been pretty eventful, I must say, and *cue sentimental music* I...I don't think...I don't think I'm ready for a new year yet. It's just...It's just too soon. It's only been a week since I said goodbye to 2010. I'm not ready to commit to another year.

Ah...2010, you brought me much joy. Especially after a rather difficult relationship with the previous helped me give life a chance again. I shall never forget the moments we have together, my darling.

Anyway, enough moaning. I shall now brag about the presents I got 'last' year. Whoever said giving is better than receiving is clearly a person who has never received presents, the hypocrite.

On my '18th' birthday (Well, you see, the candles marked 22 is clearly a mistake)

  • Lovely pair of earrings from Eric
  • Exciting Grow-your-own-peanuts box from Cyn
  • A beautiful chocolate cake...
  • ...and GAP hat-glove-scarf set from XiaoLi, MengNi and Claire

Moving on to Christmas...
Sing along with know the song...

"2 Christmases ago, I gave you my heart...
but after a few weeks, you gave it away.
This year, to save me from tears,
I had my mother interrogate you before I started dating again."

Now let's talk about the stuff I got! Because we all know that's why you're still reading this.

  • Fluffy, red ladybug slippers and...
  • ...Cosy Vero moda knit sweater from Eric
  • Cute earrings from Cyn
  • Adorable Cupcake mug from Jen
But the most amazing Christmas present I got this year is to have everybody I love crammed in a tiny 2 accessible bedroom for 3 weeks with enough food to feed an army.

'Mom and Dad on top of Primrose Hill'

'New Year's Eve dinner with the family'

Now everybody's gone back to where they need to be, I feel so...alone. And exams are coming up, and I've got homework I haven't finished...and terms starting in a couple of days. Damn you 2011. It's only been a week and you've already started scroowing with me.
