Hi there, dear friends πŸ˜€

I just love the month of December! There are so may reasons for me to celebrate December every year :-

1) the weather in Malaysia is much cooler with the rainy season, not as humid and hot as in other months (especially when the Chinese New Year is here). So, December is a really enjoyable, cool month!  😎

2) wooo…hooo…school’s offΒ  until the beginning of next year and I get to have a long break from ferrying my kids to/fro school and tuition centres…plus, I get to sleep in a little later in the morning. When you reach my age, sleep is something that you really cherish a lot! πŸ˜†

3) December is when I celebrate my wedding anniversary – this year, I would have being married for 27 years! πŸ˜€

4) we get to celebrate the Chinese Winter Solstice Festival or “Tung Jit” in the Cantonese Chinese language on the 22nd and I cook a traditional Tung Jit dinner for my family. Mostly, we look forward to eating the Glutinous Rice Balls in syrup to signify this important day

5) lastly but not least, the joyous Christmas celebration is here and there is a festive buzz in the air… family looks forward to having a Christmas Turkey Dinner as usual. Just only yesterday my eldest son, Ryan, remarked that he is looking forward to my Turkey Stuffing and he wants me to make a double portion of that this year as he loves it so much! πŸ˜†

So, here is to all of you out there who also loves the December month like I do! Happy Holidays to all of you! πŸ˜€

With best wishes,

choesf πŸ˜€

      Good morning, dear Jessica πŸ˜€

      Your family’s names are listed in the Christmas Trinity Prayers under No. 317 HERE or HERE. I think you are from Singapore? I have put your country as that but if I am wrong 😳 , do correct me and I will amend it accordingly. πŸ˜‰

      Do have a blessed and wonderful Christmas celebration this year! πŸ˜€

      With best wishes,
