Well, Street View just got even better recently. They’ve added Pompeii into the list of many wonderful places in the world with Street View. Yes, you can now visit the beautiful ancient city of Pompeii from the comfort of your home. Isn’t that cool? I wonder how they do the Street View imaging. Should be using Google Trike since it’s impossible for the van to enter some of the places.
And so I’m offering this simple phrase, to kids from one to ninety-two. Although it’s been said many times, many ways…
Merry Christmas to you.
Nat King Cole – The Christmas Song
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping at your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like eskimos.
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.
They know that Santa’s on his way –
He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And ev’rymother’s child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.
and so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said many times,
Many ways: “Merry Christmas to you”
Some of you might notice that I’ve posted an entire Facebook photo album on Paddington Bear. No, the Paddington Bear makers didn’t engage bloggers to help promote their new bear. If they do, I should be the last person on their list. And there is no Paddington Bear craze in Singapore yet.
So here is the whole story. We had a Christmas gathering last Tuesday, like what we have been doing for the past 2 years. And as usual, we have a small gift exchange. So everyone is supposed to buy a present and we draw lots to see who gets what. And I got the Paddington Bear that Justin bought.
It’s super funny cause I was with him on Monday when he bought the present. And I casually mentioned that I’ll try to exchange with another person if I get the bear. But like what Fari said, Fate deals cruel hands. I got the bear via draw lots and nobody wants to exchange with me. (Coincidently, that present was numbered 13) Well, at least it wasn’t a Hello Kitty.
And for the fun of it, we even did a unboxing/unwraping video at the restaurant.
I notice that the customers at the other table are watching and laughing too. It was good fun. Really enjoyed the Christmas gathering. Hope everyone had a good time.
PS: Maybe I should change my avatar photo to this.
