Dinner, Gift Exchange & Spending an early Xmas

Friday, December 19, 2008

Sometimes all u need for a quick pick-me-up in life are friends, dinner and lotsa laughs.
Im extremely thankful for my bunch of girls, who saw me through the years and I appreciate how they forsake precious time to accompany me for dinner.

Last night was another Happy Hour in our terms, but no alcohol actually needed.
And it was such a blast!

My bestie Wendy & me first did a lovely lunch at Shoduku Cineleisure where we ate as much as we camwhored.



Then it was time for our nail session whereby Shihua joined us at Far East straight.
I did my toes this time, a delightful Christmas themed French Pedicure (My favourite) but with a little twist.
I had some glitter added so the silver and white combination made it a very merry little christmas feel.
Wendy, almost predictably, -had chosen black nail polish for both hands and feet and the girls in the nail salon where laughing at how 'HEI BAI PEI' we were!
Hua had her favourite nude (read = machiam like nothing) colour on, but had also chose to do some glitter glitter with her soft gel nails.

After doing our nails, we had some time to ourselves before meeting our dearest Miko at Paragon for dinner so predictably us girls trooped off for some major (Wendy), minor (me) and window shopping (Shihua)!

I concur that Shihua actually have absolutely nothing to buy until she begrudgingly got forced by us to buy a small present for our Christmas gift exchange at dinner.

And so we had to split up to get a gift each for the lucky dip!
But not before we had a classic Shihua conversation.

Shihua: Can I buy chocolates as the present?
Me & Wendy: *roll eye* Yes u can.... but u are not supposed to tell leh!
Shihua: But I want to eat chocolate actually...
Me & Wendy: THEN U PICK UR OWN PRESENT TO TAKE HOME LOR!
*DOUBLE ROLL EYE*

Hahahahhahaha.
I still giggle at the thought of it as I type this down.

After the present-buying, we all then met up at Paragon Sushi Tei for dinner.
And this was really where the laughter started.

This was my wasabi.



Er..and this was Wendy's when she told me she wanted ABIT of wasabi.



I nearly kena smacked by her can!
But really this is abit wat!!!
><

My bestie bery hard to please.. haha.

Undoubtedly, we were such a rambunctious table!
I tell u, when girls meet up, lewd jokes fly and personal opinions that are quite, quite R(A)rated tend to, well, be openly aired.

We do love being brutally honest with each other and that included sharing bed tactics of others (men can be really funny!) that we heard through the common grapevine, idle hearsay about mutual friends & their jobs or just to simply put, - it was quite a gossip campaign that we held last night.
:p

Oh.. karma oh karma duncha bite me for being such a biatch...Sigh.
Maybe u should bite my girlfriends first!
Hahahahhaha! Kidding la!

Picture Time!



So after some scandalicious talk, we proceeded to the best part of the evening.. GIFT EXCHANGE!

I made (well, kinda forced) everyone buy something a gift valued under $20.
(Nothing too expensive becoz recession, you know.)

Then I took some paper, wrote everyone's name on a slip, folded it up and juggled it.
Each person takes a piece and we open up to see who gets whose pressie.
If a person chooses her own name (I did it like, twice!), we re-do the whole process until everyone get another person's name.

It was quite funny and we did alot of shouting inbetween, too.
:D



I got Miko's pink silver heart pendant, Miko's got Wendy's Crabtree & Evelyn hand moisturisers, Shihua's got my four mugs (as seen in picture) and Wendy's got Shihua's rose fagrance body butter.



But you know what friends are for when we ended up each with a MUG too!
Courtesy of Shihua who really thinks she has no business with FOUR mugs so might as well give us one each!
All thanks to the genius who bought four mugs!
(AHEM! Me! Me!)

But thats not all, Miko followed suit by very kindly distributing her hand moisturisers which I absolutely also love becoz its C&E's star product.



So at the end of the day, we all had a jolly good time laughing, playing and having some light-hearted fun despite the gloomy recession period now.

What a memorable way to end the year.
Armed with a 'goody' bag too!
I treasure each gift and will think of the girls whenever I use them.
:D

You look back really, and realise that all the money in the world will never buy u true happiness or love, - and Im truly glad I had some yesterday.
:)

And then I came home to a smiling Jungle Boy and it really made me feel on top of the world.

I appreciate u girls, and thank you for the absolutely wonderful day.
God bless.

Have a great weekend, all.
Merry Christmas!
