First Christmas


It's Jesse's first Christmas ever. Woo!

For us, it's yet another year of a last-minute shopping frenzy, frustration and pressure. I hate how Christmas is so commercialised. I mean, why can't we all just shake hands, hug, eat turkey and say "Merry Christmas"? That way, everyone will save a bundle. The same should apply for Chinese New Year and Valentine. And maybe even birthdays. Hehheh! Okay, I admit. I'm a damn cheapskate!

But like everybody else, we succumb the commercialisation anyway. And so, we got Jesse a gift. It's a small toy radio that plays baby hits. He'll probably not understand what it's all about but we'll wrap up his little present anyway, just for the fun of it. And on Christmas morning, we'll help him rip it up. And knowing the little tyke, he'll probably like the wrapper more than the gift. Heh! He's kinda dopey that way.

Oh, by the way, I think Christmas is kinda sucky this year since it falls on a Saturday when most of us are on holiday anyway. And as if that didn't suck enough, New Year's Day is on Saturday too. Bah, humbug! What a ripoff.

Oh well, at least there'll be turkey to eat. Merry Christmas y'all! :)

    And all of this happened
    Because whe world is waiting
    Waiting for one child
    Black, white, yellow, no one knows
    But a child that would grow up and turn tears to laughter
    Hate to love, war to peace
    And everyone to everyone’s neighbour
    Misery and suffering would be forgotten forever
    It’s all a dream and illusion now
    It must come true, sometimes soon somehow
    All across the land dawns a brand new morn
    This comes to pass when a child is born

  14. see... jesse is cute. can put in ads alreadylah!
