The last week or so was packed with so many Christmas get-togethers that I was starting to lose track of what happened when. Haha… It started off with Ping.sg’s Christmas celebrations, on 21st December 2007, my KCS meeting on 22nd December 2007 – which wasn’t a celebration, the Wii party cum crab session on 23rd December 2007, an unplanned, unexpected Christmas dinner on the 24th December 2007, kitty hunting on 25th December 2007 and watching some legendary show on the next day – which is today.

The Wii party started at 2pm on Sunday, when Jeff picked up most of our friends from the MRT station. Everyone except Chin and Lynn were here. After a while, we began to wonder if Chin holland’d again – just like the last time when we were supposed to meet at Settlers’ Cafe… but he ended up at the Holland Village branch instead of the Boat Quay branch. Oh well…

So we decided to give him a call and realised that he thought it was the following week?! Hmm… I don’t think Chin’s that blur though. Haha… cos he managed to bring a yummy log cake along the way! Haha… it was nice! A little creamy, but nice! =P

We played tennis on Wii and were showing off all kinds of stunts and aces. Most of them are random – especially those by me, but no one knew the better! Haha.. geesh. I think now the whole world now, but it doesn’t matter. Haha… Chin kept returning a ball that was consistently out of court. Even I wasn’t able to do that – and he was using my Mii – not that it matters anyway.

Alice was supposed to join us, but she missed the entire Wii party! Oh well, but she managed to join us in time for the next item on the agenda – crab session! Yes, we went to Melbourne Mellben Restaurant at Ang Mo Kio and lined up in that crazy queue for a share of our crabs! Since crabs, when cooked are red, it’s sort of a Christmas celebration for us, especially when garnished with leafy mints.

We ordered lots of food – rojak, tofu with lemon sauce, pork ribs, stir fried vegetables, man tou, chilli crab, black pepper crab, and bee hoon crab! Yum yum! A picture tells a thousand words right? So here you go!

Do you know what’s so special about this? The claws are clean without using fingers! Alice scooped everything out using satay stick and chopsticks!

The disaster that was left behind by us for the lady to clean. It was a good meal and a good gathering! Also a good get-together before Kelly leaves for her new job! All the best!
