Run Up to X’mas 2007!

23/12/2007: Last Minute Shopping 

The Family was supposed to join Aba’s relatives for a X’mas eve ‘party’. 

There was going to be gift exchange (random). Kids below 12 will get a present from each family. 

So Ama brought the Kids (all sick) to nearby Jusco for last minute shopping of X’mas presents. 

It was SUPER crowded. 

Spent 1 ½ hours buying 3 adults and 6 children presents. 

It took more than 1 hour more to set them all gift wrapped there.

p.s After removing the price tags from the presents, the Kids were tasked with throwing them away. 

Instead, May and Sarn stuck the price tags all over Jern! 

Jern was a good sport – not only did he let them do it, he insisted on walking around with the stickers on his shirt the rest of the day!

24/12/2007: X’mas Eve ‘Party’ 

Dinner with Aba’s relatives (X’mas ‘party’) was supposed to start at 7:30pm, but due to the rain, everyone was late (Aba and Agong 1st to arrive). 

Western style dinner was served:-         
   Creamy soup
   Braised pork + gravy
   Smoked duck
   Boiled vegetables
   Tropical and citrus fruits
   After Wight mints
   X’mas chocolates and cakes

As there were no other ‘young’ children, Jern Sarn May soon became bored. ‘Walk here walk there’ while the grand uncles and aunties chatted incessantly.

Ama and the Kids left earlier, around 11pm because the Kids weren’t well. 

Had a BIG bag full of presents! 

Reached home almost 12am. 

Managed to persuade the Kids to open the presents tomorrow (except one) and got them to bed quickly! 

By the time Aba and Agong coma back, Ama and the Kids were already sound asleep!

25/12/2007: X’mas Day 

Due to yesterday’s ‘late night party’, everyone woke up late. 

The Kids had a BIG surprise!

Aba and Ama’s X’mas present for the Kids – Supermarket Shopping Fun Playset! (The Kids had been eyeing it since the last time that they were at Toy ‘r’ Us, little knowing that Ama had secretly bought it).


As Aba and the Kids was not feeling well, the Family didn’t go out on X’mas day ‘jalan-jalan’…

Until Ama discovered that the Barney Show was on at One Utama – and it was the last day!

Barney, BJ and Baby Bop are basically the only T.V. characters (other than Disney characters) that the Kids know. 

So the Family rushed to One Utama by 7:30pm. 

Unfortunately, the last show (8pm) was already full house. 

Somehow, Ama managed to get the Kids admitted and even got coupons from the organizers for taking pictures with Barney himself! 

The Kids got to watch the show close up – yah!

The show lasted around 20 minutes with the usual singing and dancing, including familiar Barney numbers as well as X’mas carols. 

Alas, when the photo session came… 

The Kids were too SCARED to go up the stage alone (ie, without Aba or Ama – parents not allowed; can only take photo in the designated ‘parents box’).

Maybe it’s because they were moody from being sick. 

Anyway, the Family had a quick dinner of Tako Yaki and sushi at Jusco before going home.
