Christmas and Gratitude: Dinner at Watami!

Happy weekend all!!!

Christmas christmas christmas... Favorite time of the year cos it's an excuse to meet all my beautiful friends that I'm blessed with. 


Every time Christmas rolls around, I start to think about how another year has gone past. Reflecting on the year, and how the days have turned into weeks into months. How quickly time passes us by... 

This year, I'm reflecting on gratitude and love.. I'm truly grateful for every good thing that has happened to me and I am extremely thankful because I know I am so loved and in good hands :) Sometimes, I feel amazed with all the blessings in my life. I love my funny family even though they frustrate me at times, I enjoy my work tremendously and find immense pride and satisfaction in it, I have a super loving boyfriend, I am surrounded by so so so many friends I know will always be there for me, I am doing everything I love. I can't think of anything I want to ask for this Christmas, except maybe MORE TIME... So that I can do more things :( I'm so greedy :(

When it comes to friendship.. I'm not someone who goes around making friends easily, which YZ will attest to because he likes to say I'm very anti-social (!!!!) Okay, it can be true sometimes.. :( For those people who don't know me.. many people think I'm standoff-ish and cold, or that I'm an arrogant or proud person. But the truth is, I don't quite know how to talk to people I don't feel comfortable with, and it's easier for me to just not try. Hahahahahaa. 

And well, if you know my personality well enough, you would know that I'm a very candid and straight-forward person, and some people get offended by what I say, without me even trying :( That being said, I can be quite sociable and friendly at times too, especially after I've warmed up to new people! I love spending time with close friends, those that laugh at me, with me, and accept me for who I am :) 

This year, I've grown closer to many wonderful people whom I'm glad have appeared in my life, and that I've gotten the chance to know better, and even more thankful that they have allowed me in theirs, regardless of how insignificant this friendship may be to them.

I'm really a very crap friend.. I don't remember all my friends' birthdays (sometimes i can't even keep track of what date it is today omg) I am often so busy and distracted with work that I don't talk to friends for days or weeks or months! Yet despite all my terrible shortcomings.. I am never short of these God-sent angels around me. Truly truly blessed, I must have accumulated some good karma in my past life :D I sometimes wonder why these people even bother to stick around in my life. But I am so grateful that you all do! Every single one of you. ^^ Thank you...

Been meeting up with so many groups of girlfriends this month, all in the name of merry-making and Christmas! Super love. Gonna try to put up all the photos if possible!


Dinner at Watami Raffles City!

With my favourite bunch of gossip girls.. Hahaha! Steph was finally back in town, we haven't seen this girl for ONE ENTIRE YEAR! :( Decided on Watami at Raffles City (no way were we going to Orchard.. just waaaay too crowded during Christmas season!) and managed to get seats for the seven of us!
My favourite part of Watami = super super value for money set meals! We shared a set for FOUR amongst seven people. AND DAMN FULL TOO D: Almost did not finish the food!
Wendy and Nancy ♥
Drinks that come together with the set. Special mention to the Pineapple Yakult drink!!! Quite tasty.

Amazing amount of food that came in our set for four pax.. I don't see how 4 normal persons can even finish this amount of food. Seriously.

Presenting... my special dish LOL that I "cooked" with the tepanyaki pan and all the left-overs that no one wanted to eat... It turned into a very tasty katsu chicken mixed rice dish.. Hahahaha and we even managed to finish most of it in the end! YAY!!!
Good job!!! :D

Drinks session at TCC Citylink Mall after that!
Steph bought us a box of matcha mochi!
Checking out the latest gossip via smart phone, and god knows what else. Hahaha.
Nancy, Wendy, Steph and Joyce!
Felicia, myself and Debs!
Awww nice shot of these three!
We had to take a Christmas Tree picture. Compulsory! Asked a random passerby for help, and it turned out rather lopsided hahah.
Self-shot to the rescue!!! :D


Here's my wish for everyone this Christmas.. To love and be loved! Stay thankful for every blessing regardless of how little. Merry merry Christmas and have a wonderful one with your loves!!!
