Boxing Day party

It has become tradition for me to have a Boxing Day party to celebrate Christmas with family, friends and those I work with so it was no different for Christmas 2010.

I love the challenge of getting interesting and relevant xmas presents for my friends and family and the look on their faces when they unwrap the pressies (can be bad sometimes!). So here's what I got for them, tell me am I a good gifter or what? :p

Ok for my family, Kayden got a Bey Blade stadium from his daddy, that's a no brainer, he's been going on about bey blades for the past few weeks! For Dylan, I got him a 3 wheeled scooter! He was so happy when he opened the gift becoz now he can join his brother for scootering adventures along the HDB corridor :p For Erwin, I got him a book on millionaires' secrets so he can strike it rich soon and I can be a tai-tai hahaha :D

For my dear friend Corinne and my employee Wen Lin and ex employee Charlene, I got them little handmade lomo camera necklaces from an Etsy shop, aren't they just simply adorable?!

Yvonne, another dear friend who loves everything Japanese, I got her a cherry blossom fragrance from The Body Shop so she can smell japanese all day long :) For my other dear friend Terence who's been training and taking part in triathlons, I got him a phone pouch which he can strap to his arm while running. Dave, my writer friend who's into comics, I got him a thick hardcover book from DC Comics. Ik Hui who complained to me about her dark circles, I got her a concealer for her eyes kekeke. Ashley my ex employee who recently got an iPhone, I got her a speaker for her phone and for her girlfriend Shirley who recently picked up photography, I gave her a tee with a hanging camera design.

Ok next came the tricky ones, the bloggers. For Edmund, the pastor, I got him this book The Case for GOD which talks about the mindset of religion in this modern day. Eunice my travel blogger friend got a travel pouch designed like a postmarked letter from Italy, very cute :D As for Walter, man he was tough to buy for, so in the end I got him some hanging mobile photo holder thingy :p

We had too much food as usual and I made desserts we learnt from our last staff outing to Palate Sensations (cooking school). I made Vanilla Panna Cotta with raspberry compote and Chocolate Lava cakes :D

Hope you all had fun, see you at the next party!
