How to wrap a present?

OK, I know I suck at wrapping present. Usually I would go to the gift wrap counter and get professional help. But I don’t have time to queue up at the gift wrap counter this year because of my last minute Christmas shopping. So got no choice but to wrap the present myself. At first I thought it should be easy since all the gifts this year are in box shape.

And I’m once again reminded how I suck at wrapping present.

How do people work in gift wrap counter? How did they wrap the presents so nicely? I really need to learn from them.

This year’s wrapping paper is sponsored by Robinsons. Not all the presents are from Robinsons. Haha.

Happen to bump into this youtube video on how to wrap a present. It’s done by a little boy. Amazed. I guess it’s abit too late this year. But maybe can keep it for reference next year.

On 2nd thought, I think I can do better than him. If someone give me a video camera this year for Christmas present, I would be able to do a better video clip.

Not a Silent Night

I could never understand why Christmas eve is called Silent Night when everyone is partying and it’s obviously not silent at all.

Anyway…. Have a good Christmas eve everyone. Happy Christmas and Merry New Year to all Decayonnet readers. (PS: Decided to re-rebrand back to the old name.)

Andy Williams – Silent Night

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ, the Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Best Seasons Greeting ads

I love to look at the ads during Christmas season. Christmas is the time when the ads companies gets creative and come out with lots of interesting ads to wish customer a merry christmas. The beer companies are well known in doing this. It’s nice to take a break at the end of the year and let the creative juice flow.

But the best season greetings ads this year isn’t from the beer companies. Instead, it is from RSAF. I saw this at a bus stop a few days ago.

Fighter Jets escorting Santa? Haha. Good one guys.

Merry Christmas everyone.

A blue, blue blue blue Christmas

2 more days to christmas, I’m glad that I won’t be having a blue Christmas.

Elvis Presley – Blue Christmas

I’ll have a blue christmas without you
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green christmas tree
Wont be the same dear, if you’re not here with me

And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That’s when those blue memories start calling
You’ll be doin all right, with your christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue blue blue christmas

Youll be doin all right, with your christmas of white,
But I’ll have a blue, blue christmas

Look ma! no wires.

Let’s play photo hunt with the picture below. Can you spot the difference?

OK, I guess it’s obvious that the wire is missing on the right. I just got the wireless mighty mouse today. Paid $8 for it because I use my Citibank credit card reward points to redeem a $100 discount voucher. Cool. Thank you Citibank.

Anyone interested in buying a secondhand wired mighty mouse? Used for 3 weeks only.

Look ma! No wires. :D
