2011 Xmas Presents

2011 Xmas Presents

xmas is all about presents and presents and more presents.... =)... i'm always very stressed up over getting presents for people cos like what joyce said - i'm super unobservant over what ppl like or dislike...i always have a fear of what if they dun like the present??? this applies to birthday presents too... that's why i'm the kind that will always chip in but never volunteer to buy present for anyone... oopx...

but this year, i 良心发现 abit... especially when i realised that ppl have been giving me presents whenever they go oversea as shown in (http://tangtang-land.blogspot.com/2011/12/gifts-from-babes-who-loves-me.html)
but most of the time, i will come back empty handed or with boliao stuff or food stuff to be shared.... but really cant blame lo... everything in europe is so ex...i din even buy anything, except for a few postcards, for myself lo... then most of the other holidays are at beach resorts...also nothing unique to buy lo.... always the same old magnets and keychains which i dun really like receiving and assume that everyone else also dun like receiving also... oopx.... cos really dun know what to do with them except to just keep on collecting them in a big glass jar...

like i say, i 良心发现 this xmas and coupled with some bits of extra cash and time since all my tutees had graduated (read : NO MORE TUITION), i really went shopping in search of the best gift (in my opinion) for friends whom i have taken for granted....


...this was bought with joyce in mind... so was really glad and 'heng' that she was the one who picked it up in the exchange among laurice, me and her... =)

it's a travel organiser ...super apt pressie for joyce ... i will try to get a picture of her travel toiletries pouch to show why if possible... it's really disastrous....


specially for lene who, like me, believes in princess kisses... =)

and in return, i gotten these from her
 the price tag was still attached as she tried to prove that she hit the budget of $15.50 on the dot ... hahaha...


saw this at precious moment and though that laurice might like it... =)

it's a table calendar which can be reuse every year since the day, monday - sunday, is not printed on it... =P
why for laurice leh??? cos she is the only close girl friend of mine who goes to church every week ... and i associate her with the cover pix of a modern lady who knows how to live her life well and she has dogs too, although not a poodle as printed...

in exchange, i received this super duper cute penguin water dispenser that indicates the minimun amount of water to be consumed each day

and this book of
from her... now Mr Ang is thinking of getting me a blender so that i can make him a cup every week.... hmmm.... still considering....maybe can organise a juices & smoothies gathering one day ... =P


Jappy stuff always reminds me of meixiang (mx)...

i also dun know why... and no, she's not a japanese.... and i assumed since she loves to give ppl notebook (i had received at least 2 from her b4...all with super cute designs), she must be someone who likes notebook too.... hee.... i also added a cute cute pink chick contact lens case for her which i had forgotten to take any photos of...=(

and she gave me a lovely dovy art kit... =)
 haven got the time and the mood to do it yet.... maybe can be a wedding anniversary activity or valentine day activity to do with mr ang...waahahhaha....


got this sweet weekly table planner for yuan...

 with the many many datelines we have as teachers every day, week, month...it's good to have something visual to remind us on our staffroom table.... though i wun know where she's gonna place this la... hahahahha.... and since mr ang was her santa in this year RSS xmas exchange, i had top this gift up with a pebble art kit and a contact lens case.. =)


Mab's present was the hardest to get cos she's a very practical person who dun really like cute stuff except for little twin stars so imagine my delight when i finally chance upon dslr camera strap in pretty pretty designs at plaza sing...but they were so exp...the ugly ones were $19.90 and the pretty ones were $29.90.... that's a bit ex for 1 present since i was buying so many gifts this year....

so imagine again my second delight when i chance upon it again at a reduced price at bugis junction... =).... didnt managed to get a photo of it as there was free gift wrap... heee.... had asked her to help me take a pix of it instead and is now waiting for her to upload the photo.... which i think might take a LONG while....

and she has to give me this
 silly looking pig in return... =(.... and she also has to take this photo
and caption it "an apt pressie for a piggy person"

it's really a pot calling the kettle black lo... luckily, she 自知自明, she gotten the same pig for herself too... hahaha....


 this year gift exchange with xinying and vivian is based on wishlist one... xinying wished for a charm and vivian gotten her something like 


from Thomas Sabo... i remember that it's a heart shape and it's printed "IT'S A BOY" cos xinying is preggy with lucus now but i cant find a pix of it online leh... =(

i gotten kinokuniya vouchers for vivian as requested and xinying gotten me
these 6 necklaces... pals will know that i'm a person who dosen like and dosen wear accessories (i dun even wear my wedding band most of the time lo).... cos i feel uncomfortable wearing them and most of them actually give me rashes especially when i perspire... =(...
but angela convinced me that a simple necklace can improve the outlook of a very PLAIN top or dress (which i have plentiful) trememdously.... so i wished for a variety of necklaces from xinying and so far i had wore the bird cage one and the black sparkling beads one and luv them lo...although i will still remove them half way cos still not very comfortable with having something hanging over my neck...oopx...

an accessory rack specially chosen for ailing... she is one of those who has tons and tons of accessories... and i had made sure she dosen have one before purchasing (she told me she keeps her accessories in pouches)... although it would not be able to house all her accessories, maybe she can use it to display the top few items for each month???

that's all for xmas pressie this year... =)

TooToo Xmas Party

TooToo Xmas Party

realised that we started having themed xmas party only when ailing joined the gang....is it a coincidence???? nvm...the most impt thing is that we all enjoyed it much much.... heee....

like i mentioned in http://tangtang-land.blogspot.com/2011/12/christmas-parties.html, it's funny how individual okay pieces when put together wrongly will become so disastrous....

see what i mean......


if i dare, and if mr ang permits, i think i can go clubbing dressed like the photo above and i wun feel out of place at all lo.... whereas, if i even walked to the market or the library dressed as the tootoo like the photo below, ppl will think which rural part of some chinese country am i from lo.... hahahhaha.....


refused to step out of the house looking like this hence emergency call to xiuting to pick us up and was surprised to see that he was geared by then.... mr ang and i were busy tucking in our shirt, putting on our tootoo spect...was having a hard time clipping my centre parted hair in the lift from the carpark at B1 to level 6 of civic centre....and to our surprise, the 4 (chunyang, ailing, mengyuan and tony) who had reached earlier were nowhere near any too-ness lo....only charlene was tootoo.... i thought i was conned!!!!.... they were just too shy and waited till we arrived before they headed to the nearby toilet to gear up... wahahahhaa....

themed party = photo taking time.... =)
tootoo couple 1

tootoo couple 2

tootoo couple 3


with lene.... i was nearly dressed in about the same attire as her but found it to be more sexy than tootoo cos the skort was too short for me...made me look like a sexy school girl instead...woowoo.... =D


4 tootoo brides from vietnam???

...if dun want girl... we also have boys....





mr ang trying out my hello kitty spect....not bad ah???? hahahahhaha..... so niang lo....


lene also looks so cute in the kitty spect... =)

that he won the most tooz award ... =) ....


with lala... who was working part-time there...


....PRESENT TIME....
each of us was randomly allocated a person to buy the present for based on a number from 1 - 8 that was picked....


xiuting received an inspirational book from yuan... by the way, he was the most not tooz voted..... heee



yuan received a 3-in-1 xmas pack from mr ang.... prepared by me though.... there's a very pretty table weekly planner + glass pebble art kit and a cute cute contact lens case




mr ang received a box of tool set from xiuting...luv the mustache that ailing photoshopped onto him...so cute... =)




charlene received a starbucks tumbler from tony





me receiving a doggy print notebook + 4 coloured pen and a pencil from charlene....






look carefully at the presents that changed hand in the two photos above...different de lo though it's the same 2 ppl cos this lucky couple managed to draw lot to give present to each other ... haahhaa.....




which is the happy family chopstick sets which i bought as part of CIP and a box of super cute couple undies to be worn with yuan... heeee....




charlene thanking me with a kiss for getting her an iphone portable charger.... cos i realised that iphone users, including her, are always bringing their plug charger out but dun think sockets are available everywhere right....



couple undies too for chunyang and ailing from me.... hopefully chunyang can fit in....wahahahhaha....



gave ailing this accessory rack for her to showcase her many many accessories.... 



we spent more time in the ktv room taking pictures, discussing how to give and receive presents instead of singing lo... and total cost came up to be $378.... next time just come my place play board games cheaper okay??? hahahaha.....
