It is this time of the year again – Christmas – time to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
In about 8 hours’ time, DS and I will be heading up north for a cold but not white Christmas in Xiamen, China. This is one very rare time that we decided on a trip within a day, and going to depart within 3 days’ after booking our flights.
Earth Tower aka Ke Jia Tu Lou @ Yong Ding that we plan to visit during our trip.
Our Christmas dinner this year was an early and simple one at home – roast chicken with green salad, assortment of sushi and a bottle of red wine! We hardly had turkey for Christmas as it is way too big for the two of us, and I don’t really fancy that. This year, I did not put up my 5-ft Christmas tree, neither did we get a log cake.
One of our most memorable Christmases was the one spent in Japan in 2009 – a delicious traditional Japanese meal on the eve, and a fun-filled day at the Universal Studio Japan. Hopefully Christmas in Xiamen will be yet another special one too. 🙂
For all readers of this blog, here’s wishing you a joyous Christmas and an abundantly blessed 2012.

This giant Christmas tree with a mini viewing platform is a hit this year. Many queue to go up!
