As I've always said, I always considered Christmas as a family thing and New Years as a friends thing. Normally I spend Christmas with my cousins, aunts, uncles etc.. But this year there's been some turbulence in my extended family due to issues with grandma.
Therefore I spent Christmas with mom's friends and my mom at a big potluck dinner at Kitkat's house [ nickname for Katherine]. The decorations were really nice and the food was absolutely perfect! I was still a bit sick so my energy levels weren't great...
The party was relaxing and soo much good food i wish i had a bigger stomach >w<
I talked with a few people but most people were talking all in chinese... which i dont fully understand. Also the age groups were that of 10yrs old and under or 30+ years old. [most landing in 40s] So, there wasnt anyone really my age to talk to.
The next day Christmas morning, Mom and I had a really nice long chat about things then got up to get ready to go out. We planned to see Sherlock Holmes. [its opening night] We were planning just to go early pick up tix, visit grandma.. but the line up already started! We ate our lunch at the movie theatre and watched Sherlock Holmes. The casting was really good, i actually didnt know that Sherlock Holmes would be soo cool. I always found the cartoons a tad boring.... The best change I think was changing the costume. Getting rid of the that traditional brown cloak of his made him soo much cooler. It also helped that the stars were Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law~
After that we visited Grandma.... I dont like seeing that woman.. The old age home was creepy... just like hospitals are creepy... it reeks of decay. [physical and mental] My grandma has completely lost her mind shes become paranoid and think my aunts and uncles are dead and that people are going to capture us and take us away and yet she STILL has the energy to pick on my mom =_-.
Anyway after a little while we left. We were supposed to watch the movie with Kitkat as well but she was too tierd and phoned us again a little later and we went to a chinese resturant and ate a really nice dinner then went to a bubble tea lounge and talked some more. This time people where speaking in english so it was a little better ^^
And so that's my Christmas for 2009~
