Christmas wish…

It’s Christmas Day, 2019 today…and I am taking a break from my regular posts to wish each and everyone a Blessed and Joyous Christmas…

Christmas wishes

When we were in Miri that day, my cousin’s wife, Amy, passed me these…

From cousin from Brisbane, Australia

…Christmas mince pies and Scottish shortbread and a beautiful 2020 calendar too from my cousin (my Miri cousin’s eldest sister) home from Brisbane, Australia, thank you so much, Teresa. I was hoping we could meet there but it so happened that she went over to KL to visit another brother of hers and his family.

In the meantime, when I was in Kuching that day, my KL cousin, Christina, gave me this box of M&S mince pies, reputed to be the best this year

M&S mince pies

…while her Kuching sis, Euphrasia, bought me some of the Green Road old lady’s nyonya chang. Sadly, it seemed that like the Kai Joo Lane pastries that I blogged about yesterday, the quality had dropped and they were not as nice as the last time I bought some from her to take home.

Soon after we got home from Kuching, the POSLAJU van stopped at my gate to deliver me these…

M&S Christmas pudding & Hallmark card

– more M&S Christmas pudding and a Christmas card, Hallmark no less…also from my KL cousin, Christina!!! Maybe she sent these before she left for Kuching that day and knowing how terrible our national courier service is these days, she brought something else just in case.

These Christmas cards from family and friends everywhere…

Christmas cards

…were waiting for me in my mailbox when we got home that day, one from my cousin, Georgie in Kota Kinabalu and my cousin, Tina in Kuching and their families, one from a very old friend, Mary also in Kuching and last but not least, one from Phong Hong all the way from KL.

Of course, I was also, among so many other buah tangan (gifts) from all and sundry, bringing home from Kuching my aunt’s Christmas fruit pudding and a Hallmark card from my uncle and all loved ones in the family – needless to say, I am going to save this one specially for Chinese New Year, just a month away.

In the meantime, my cousin, Alister, who comes home from Sydney, Australia every year around Christmas to visit his mum, is back in town and we went out for lunch together but that will be in another blogpost, probably not so soon. Of course, he does not come home empty-handed and this year, he brought us this…

From Alister

…thank you so much, Alister. It sure was great to see you again.

Here, I would like to say thank you to everybody for the gifts and cards and everything at one time or another throughout the year. May the Good Lord bless us all abundantly in the days ahead and once again, a Blessed and Holy Happy Christmas from us…
