Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
our troubles will be miles away.
Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.
Through the years
We all will be together,
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself A merry little Christmas now.
This got ot be one of the saddest Christmas songs ever written with the most hauntingly beautiful music. Listening to this song bring tears to the eyes and wish that all is well and pray that peace will prevail in the world.
On a happier note:
Christmas to us means family, friends, carols, presents...
angels, snowflakes, reindeers, mistletoe... (the deco)
turkey, fruitcake, lola's chicken salad, oxtail stew...(the foodz)
and the list goes on.
The one thing we all love most about the festive season is the family being home. This year, besides Daniel and Julia (K's brother and sister-in-law from Canada), we are also blessed with the presence of Mimi (our niece from KL).
We were expecting Mee Fung and David from the States but they couldn't make it. Maybe Chinese New Year we'll see them home, keeping our fingers crossed. :)
(while we're at it: Big Heather, Little David, Eros, Amy, Chris, Dylan, Pam, Anthony -WISH YOU'RE HERE, WE MISS YOU!)
While we stuff our faces, we promise to try and take a break between munches and blog about food we only bother making when our loved ones are around.
To everyone, we wish you all a wonderful, merry Christmas. One that makes you feel warm and fuzzy and fills your heart with gladness, wherever you may be.
Lotsa Love from,
All the droolers :p
