Okay, this post is one day late, but I'm gonna cheat and have it backdated. By the way, Merry Christmas too.
I'm logging in from a coffeeshop 30 seconds walk from my mum's house in Malacca. Every morning (except Thursday when the shop is closed), I will walk over, wake my Dell from sleep, order a warm home-made barley and have a plate of 3-in-1 (cheecheongfun, yamcake and pumpkin). Some days, the cheecheongfun lady doesn't sell cheecheongfun :), only meesiam, and on those days, I'll just have my barley.
There is also nasilemak, fried mee and some other food in the coffeeshop which I'm not keen on. Sean, who has been a spoilsport on all the local Malacca food we tapao home, loves the garlic bread here. So he'll sit with me, have his garlic bread, before leaving me to my Dell and the internet :)
So Eddie made it back to Malacca on New Year's Eve from Moscow. It was nice to be together as a family on the last day of the year though we didn't do anything special. By the stroke of midnight, all four of us were huddled in one bedroom, Sean was fast asleep, while the 3 of us had just finished watching a silly Cantonese movie on TV about a serial killer who chops parts of the victim's body so the victim is exactly 70 pounds...LOL!
On New Year's Day, we watched Sherlock Holmes at the Melaka Mall Cineplex. 2A2C tickets came to RM24! That's about S$2.50 each to watch a movie. Wahhh, still so cheap. Can't say the same about food prices in Malacca now, which is getting ridiculously high while quality is deteriorating at the same time. Will post about that another day.
I'm not a resolutions kind of person. I make and break resolutions on a daily, not yearly, basis. But one thing is for sure, this is the year where I need to focus on ME. What that actually means, I don't quite know yet. Hopefully, you guys have a clearer focus on what you wanna do or even not do in 2010. Whatever it is, I wish everyone a bountiful, blessed, healthy and happy year ahead. Not sure why, but I feel good about this year :)
