Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays And All That

From all of us, to you on this joyous Christmas day. To those who don't celebrate (including us) have a happy holiday especially if you do get a day off today. I got a day off and even an early release from work yesterday! Whee!!!
 
 
 
Nice for us to look at last year's illumination all around Japan because we don't have a chance to get fresh photos of them this year. Gotta  wait till 2014!
We had a nice Christmas eve dinner - Mommy had Lamb Karubi, Daddy had seafood teppanyaki and Raimie enjoyed his chicken teppanyaki.

Oh gosh, I'm hungry just thinking about yesterday's dinner. Must go eat NOW!

    1. Merry Christmas to you and family too! :)

      You must be busy with the arrangement for the move in 2013?

    2. Thank you! Yeah, really busy at the moment with preparation and packing for the move. Taking a bit of time to go on a short vacation with the family yo Phillip Island as well, which should be good.

    2. He got a lump of coal. Actually a kotatsu. Well... the kotatsu is for us, but he now lives under it as it is warmer. :)

    3. I wouldn't mind living under the kotatsu in winter too! :-D

    1. Merry Christmas David. First Christmas for your family of three? :-)

      How's the Christmas decor there this year?

    2. Yes, first Christmas for my family of three, although, it was pretty low key (Christmas not being a holiday in Japan and all).

      I haven't spent much time downtown lately, but there was a big blue tree in Marugamemachi Dome (with the "gate" underneath this year) and a bunch of blueish decoration in the shotengai around.

      BTW, you should be receiving a package from Malaysia in two weeks' time, at the latest. ^^

  6. I would love to see the Christmas decorations in Japan. Australia doesn't have elaborate decorations in the city.

  7. Nice deco of Krismas in Jepun. Heard from my sweetie Mango it was pretty quite in Spore during Xmas perhaps the people were mostly indoors slicing turkey & toasting instead of roaming the streets.

    1. Mango went to Singapore and left Bananaz alone? Hope Bananaz didn't go crazy Christmas partying while she's away. :-D

  9. I'm so late with this response that it's going to have to be "and all that". Happy Easter? :)

    It's the usual midweek chaos. I'll never get used to Tokyo's relentless go go go. South Africa stops functioning between mid-December and mid-January. Summer holiday! This place? Nah. The language school where I work is open until the 31st. What?! Gaaa!

    PS: One could argue that SA *never* functions at full capacity, but that's another story for another day. >:)

    PPS: So can I say Happy New Year now, while I'm at it? :p

    1. I have been lax at dropping nonsense over at your Bond post too. Gomen ne. ^^

      When is Easter by the way? xD

      Easter isn't really that big in Japan, IIRC? Right? ;p

      "One could argue that SA *never* functions at full capacity" which made SA & Msia two peas in a pod. :)
