Tis the month..

Wednesday, December 01, 2004

Suria KLCC, Dec 2003. Lookit, there's even a choir singing at the base of the tree!

It's December! As usual, I'm finding it hard to digest the fact that it's already the last month of the year. 12 months don't feel or even last that long actually, in retrospect. Still, much to do before the year ends- midsem exams to pass (and during Xmas week as well, pooey), wishlists to make, new year resolutions to draw out, braces to put in mouth, New Year Eve plans to confirm ..

And then, roll in 2005. When you look at the new year coming around, it's pretty intimidating in a sense that it's like a clean slate again; you get to restart. I don't know whether to feel excited about the possibilities, or scared of the uncertainties. "By the time I recognize this moment, this moment will be gone"- I guess I'll just have to seize the day, take each day as it comes and welcome a host of other cliched phrases. :D

My house is being haunted by an overzealous entity called the Christmas Spirit. My dad brought home a tree today. Not your average, every season plastic, pine tree. Oh no, Xmas has caught up with the times- my dad brought home a fibre optic Christmas tree.

I didn't even know that we had fibre optic ones! Woah. It's the prettiest thing too- has all these lights that light up by themselves at the ends of the pine "needles", and alternates between blue-ish hues to reddish hues. We haven't decorated it yet, but the lights look good enough to stand on its own. Great! Less effort from us! :D Thing is, I quite miss decorating a tree though.. we haven't had one in 3 years. But this year looks to be the comeback of Xmas into my house- I think my dad even got fairy lights to put up.

Sigh. I really, really, really love Christmas. My heart's all warm and fuzzy already, just thinking about it. I still have these really vivid dreams of being in New York City one day during Christmas season. Perpetuated by images I see on TV no doubt, but it's a dream, nonetheless. I guess we all need something to look forward to as the years go by, and we all get that little bit older, wiser, cynical .. we all need this escape; a goal which isn't completely far-fetched, but achievable with the right amount of resources (ergo, money).

One day, I know, one day. Til then, still dreaming of my white Christmas. :)

    Xmas in New York is beautiful. The lights, decorations, walking around in Macy, Central Park with snow all over. You definately should go. Below is a link to some pictures i took while visiting New York.

    Make it happen. If there's something you really want, go for it. I went dec last year. Spent 6 days there but that wasnt enough. Actually i was sick as a dog on day 5 from having too much fun!

    isn't it weird? i could've been walking past you and never knew. funny how people lives intersect in ways they don't really know about.
