In the last 3 years, me and Geoff have been celebrating our Christmas and New Year’s overseas. We were on Boracay, Phillippines for a wedding in 2006, Bali in 2007, London and Paris in 2008. This year, we decided to save some money and have a local celebration back in our beautiful town of KL.
Christmas Eve was also a birthday of one of my dear friend, Elayn. We attended a dinner party of 12 to celebrate her birthday and also enjoyed an intimate dinner courtesy of Master Chef, Michael. *wink*
Mike and Elayn surprised us all with an appetiser of meats… Salad was served of course, but we also had roast duck and a generous helping of roast pork (aka “Siew Yoke”) for starters. This Christmas, I believe “Siew Yoke” has been the centre of every dinner we had.
Main course was awesome. There roast beef (yes, we had literally every meat imaginable) was cooked to perfection.
Didn’t manage to snap any pictures of the store-bought dessert after dinner. But of course, to complete the collection of delicious food, the cheese platter was finally presented. Geoff attacked it immediately, but not before giving me several kisses beforehand.
Just a little before midnight, we sang Elayn her birthday song while she blew off the candles to a slice of cake and started with her presents. Happy birthday again, Elayn. Hope you had a great night and thank you so much for having us.
Not long after that it was toasting around the table and it’s past midnight and officially Christmas!!!
Some guests left early while me, Geoff and Richard stayed behind for some drunken game of Charades. No pictures again but we laughed so hard and enjoyed the company in the early mornings of Christmas.
The night didn’t end before Geoff got his Christmas gift from his “lover”.
It was a wonderful celebration indeed and we’re glad we chose to spend it at home in KL this year. Merry Christmas everyone!
