Christmas withdrawal

It is over at last. After numerous presents,it is over,and my tree is bare of any pretty presents. It sure has been like Santa's been....I have recevied presents from people that I have no idea who they are..relatives of Bacon's relatives.Nothing small mind you,I received a £20 GAP voucher and some £50 odd quid from the same person.And silly bacon has no idea how is that particular person related to him,which made it more like christmas!

With Bacon telling one and all that I like pink,I now have loads of presents in all sorts of glaring pinks.From an ah lien metallic leather purse (which I have returned..:P) to pink piglet scarf to bath robe, I am going on pink withdrawal! And because I asked around for availibility of facials (hello,bride to be here!), I have received a fucking face steamer.Don't play play ok...a face steamer! Hahahaha.Complete with scrubs and masks ect to allow me to turn into cinderella.

It's the apres noel sales now,which is totally amazing because most things are at 50% off.Cute christmas boxed sets are all at 50%off...I got myself boxed creams and stuff from Body Shop,went crazy at boots and will be off to Marks and Spencer's soon.I love this sale...at last I can afford to buy myself some new clothes. Did not get much though,other than the 7 pairs of socks..I never used to wear socks in Malaysia,always preferring to go barefooted.

Anyway...to my fav topic,xmas foods!!

Sorry all for the quality of the pictures...I was with 'adults' so I did not want glaring looks at what a crazy loon this new addition to the family was.Oh well,when I am officially in,I will trot around asking everyone to stop eating so I can snap away

How was everyone's christmas?

What did I do for Xmas? Erm nothing I woke up late from clubbing the night before. :P

Except for masses of ppl shopping everywhere in Singapore, it didn't feel "christmas-y" for me.
