Just in case you’re wondering, I haven’t decided to stay in Melbourne for good (quite unfortunately, considering the high hunk quotient there). I’ve been back in good ol’ Singapore for over two weeks now but I was too busy with my Christmas shopping and Christmas card-making to update my blog. Before I realise it, half of December is gone! Unbelievable.
December has always been my favourite month and I’ve always enjoyed doing the Christmassy stuff like gift-wrapping and even Christmas shopping. This year, however, I don’t get the same feeling. Maybe because I didn’t have the luxury of time to do my shopping. I spent the weekend scouring the shopping malls for suitable gifts for my colleagues and then I had to wrap them up. It wasn’t fun AT ALL. I also managed to finish the three Christmas cards meant for the girls yesterday and I have to say I’m so glad to get it over and done with.
I guess Christmas shopping is fun only when you’re getting something for your family and friends. Having to get gifts for my colleagues just because they got me a small bottle of Body Shop shower gel that I have no intention of using (i.e. useless items) is definitely not my idea of fun. To think that I’ve received two such bottles to date. Oh well.
As for my Melbourne trip, I enjoyed it very much and I like a lot of things about Melbourne. There were, of course, some things that I didn’t like but it’s always good to take a break from my boring, routine life and do some touristy stuff. I’ll give a detailed trip update once I get my photos up. Believe it or not, my sis and I only managed to resize all 450+ of them last night. We haven’t even uploaded them on the photo sites yet. Can you feel my chagrin already?
