Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas Is You

If you are still wondering what I want for christmas, well, all I want for christmas is you.
Or any of the items on my Christmas wishlist. :D

Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas Is You

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There’s just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is…
You

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There’s just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don’t need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won’t make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you
You baby

I won’t ask for much this Christmas
I don’t even wish for snow
I’m just gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe
I won’t make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won’t even stay awake to
Hear those magic reindeers click
‘Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do
Baby all I want for Christmas is you
Ooh baby
All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children’s
Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won’t you bring me the one I really need
Won’t you please bring my baby to me…

Oh I don’t want a lot for Christmas
This is all I’m asking for
I just want to see my baby
Standing right outside my door
Oh I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby all I want for Christmas is…
You

All I want for Christmas is you… baby

I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart

7 more days to Christmas. (Panic! Christmas present haven’t buy yet. Haha)
Advance Happy Christmas and Merry New Year to everyone.

I’ve decided to post a Christmas song everyday from today till Christmas day to create the mood for this holiday season.

First song in the list is Feliz Navidad. It’s actually an oldie, but the mountain tortoise me only heard of this song the first time a couple of years ago. *hide face and run*

Jose Feliciano – Feliz Navidad

Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Prospero Ano y Felicidad.

Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Prospero Ano y Felicidad.

I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
From the bottom of my heart.

Translation:
Feliz Navidad – Merry Christmas
Prospero Ano y Felicidad – Prosperous New Year and Happiness.

"I Am Legend" Singapore Premiere

I’m one of the first few people in Singapore to watch “I Am Legend” by Will Smith. HooWoo!!

My dear took part in the Class 95 contest and won a pair of ticket to the premiere. She knew that I’m interested in that show and took part in it without telling me before hand. She only told me about it when she confirmed that she won the tickets. Thanks darling. You are the greatest. :D

The contest requires her to write about what she would do if she is the last person alive on earth. And here is her entry.

I would find self-sustaining energy power sources to keep myself occupied with everything on the internet – since the internet will still be around long after the human race is eliminated. Find a trusty companion/side kick, e.g. a dog as well as a reliable food source. Would be fun to check out places which were previously inaccessible to us normal folks, such as The Oval Room in the White House, or climb to the top of the Statue of the Liberty. Most importantly, find good constant source of music to keep me accompany – would be tough to find another source of good music other than Class 95!

I think the last sentence nailed the question and make her one of the 10 winners.

The movie is great. Great show. It basically show us how Will Smith survive when he is the last person on earth. Kinda cool. Makes me wonder what would I do if I’m the last person on earth. Maybe go take all the great gadgets from Funan and Sim Lim. Haha.

But there is one part about the movie that is kinda crappy. The whole show would be perfect if they didn’t do that. I can’t help but to post here.

**Skip the text in the box if you don’t want to read spoiler.**

SPOILER ALERT!

The whole show tries to be logical by giving reason why the human race was being wiped out. Everyone caught a virus which turns them to zombie. This is totally possible in today world. Everything seems so real UNTIL that girl came and say “God” told her to go to where the rest of the humans are. God?

For goodness sake. The whole show is so perfect. Everything in the show can be explained by scientific means until this gal comes out. What the heck.

**End of spoiler**

OK, other than that crappy part, the whole show is perfect. Love it.
Make it the last movie that you are going to watch for 2007. Or the first movie you watch in 2008.

Bringing our money elsewhere

It is quite difficult to find a dinner place in town on Friday evening. Why is it that so many places don’t allow reservations during weekend evening?

I was trying to organize a Christmas party for pingsters this coming Friday evening. Initially, we wanted to go either Fish & Co at the Glasshouse or NYDC at Heeren. But both places doesn’t allow reservations on Friday evening. And the last thing I want to do is to organize a gathering without making reservations. Currently, we got 8 people confirm coming and 15 people tentative. Assuming half of those tentative are coming, that will make our gathering 15 people. 15 people without reservation on a Friday evening is as good as sitting outside 7-11 eating instant noodles. Why do they allow reservations on normal days but not weekends? If the place is not crowded, why do I want to make a reservation to begin with? Doesn’t quite make sense, does it?

OK, I know it’s hard for them to reserve table when the place is crowded. I’m not blaming them. More of feeling sorry for them. After a few days of searching, we finally found a place that allows reservations on Friday evening. Vila’ge@Heeren. We are bringing our money there instead.

Come join us for the ping.sg Christmas party on 21 Dec, 6:30pm at Vila’ge@Heeren.
Requirements: Bring a Christmas present worth around $20 for gift exchange.
