Just now was talking to Billy and asking him where he will be doing the countdown to Year 2009 tonight. Then something interesting happen which fashionably yours want to jot it down here. I told Billy I don't like countdown party. I would prefer to count money and make sure it is count up and up and up......My occupational hazard........I am a very practical person though I splurge at times and enjoy life. However I will do trade off and do my calculations.
Times are bad, so every cents count and looks like the economy is not going to be any better in 2009.........so need to tighten our belts. Of course hoping the recession to be over soonest possible.
Wherever you are tonight doing the countdown, have fun and enjoy yourself. Be sober, do your calculations, spend wisely before burning a big hole in your bank account. That's the last thing you wanna do to yourself as you close your chapter in 2008. Be good to yourself and do yourself a good favour to have a good ending to your 2008 chapter.
Toast to a wonderful year in 2009 and a new chapter is beginning soon for everyone who starts at the same timing. It is up to you to weave your chapters in 2009.
Opened the letter box just now and was glad to receive something from Fancl. It is so sweet of them.

Feel blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful people who have walked the ups and downs together with me, as well as supporting and encouraging me. I thank God for sending all the angels to help, encourage and support me. Thank God for all the blessings the Lord has showered on me.
I don't believe in New Year Resolution because I don't keep them. I believe in live life to the fullest everyday, daily resolutions and weekly resolutions. It is easier this way for me.
My goal in life is wanting to make a difference in someone's life by giving unconditionally. Be an anonymous benefactor. It is enough that they knew someone out there care on them. When I do good, I don't expect anything in return. It is experiencing the sense of true happiness because I help someone who is genuinely in need of help. However, sometimes people may take advantage of that, but cannot be help for a kind soul like me. Have you ever helped people and be anonymous ? Try it and you will feel the true happiness in your life. Trust me.....we don't have to brag and tell people that you helped them....just helped them quietly and you will be happy when you see their happy faces.
I have experienced this sense of happiness since my University days. I helped my schoolmates and did not reveal myself till one day the person I helped found out, saw me and told her friends that fashionably yours was their benefactor. (I shared with them some important notes for our University exam). That happened eons ago.... I am not bragging here, just sharing and encouraging you to try to be an anonymous benefactor.
Alrighty perhaps time for you to reflect on your life goal(s) and reflections for 2008. Let me share with you one of my favourite bible phrase :
I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live.(Ecclesiastes 3:12)

Was prescribed some lotions and cream to apply by the doctor. Now I am feeling much better, though still tearing on and off. Guess it takes at least 3 to 4 days for it to fully recover.
I have to forgo all the sales on boxing day. Everywhere is having boxing day sales. It is alright, I save money by staying at home to nurse my left eye infections. There are SALES everywhere in Singapore almost throughout the year, so missing one or two is alright.

Extract of our conversation :
Me : Hope you are enjoying your Xmas in big apple now.
Him : So so and you ?
Me : I ate Xmas Eve Buffet at Suntec with bestie
Him : I try to avoid buffet now.....eaten too much. It is ok for you but not for me though. You don't have fat cells
Me : I have. I hide it from you so you cannot see them. Don't want to let you see. How do you know I don't have fat cells
Him : Good thing I did not see them. (laughing)
He is so jovial.....I love his sense of humour.

Free Gift - Pouch
In the evening, had sumptuous dinner with bestie at Sun at CHIJMES. They have the 50% off all Sashimi at CHIJMES promotion. We love their Otoro and Sashimi. Yummy. The promotions ended on 22nd December 2008 which was last Monday. Fortunately we make it in time for the promotions. Good services and nice ambience. We will go back to dine again. Highly recommend to friends to dine there for their fresh Sashimi. I love to eat fresh Sashimi.
Presenting my Hermes twilly
While fashionably yours was trying out the twilly at the boutique, there was this gentleman who was eyeing my this piece of nice twilly. I think he wants to buy a twilly for his love ones. Too bad this is the only piece left at the boutique. It is sold to me.
I am a happy girl with my Hermes twilly.....Yippee !
Well, what can I asked for.....Good food, good company and good quality stuff on hand. Life is beautiful......counting my blessings. Thank God for everything and praise the Lord. Amen.
P.S. Note to myself, must buy pressie for my big.....because we promise each other before he left for the big apple.
After spending hours at the hair salon with Bestie, we shopped a little bit in the afternoon. Yes Bestie also had a new crowning glory to welcome the new year 2009. Love doing girlie stuffy together. We chatted happily while the hairstylists worked on our hair to make us pretty.
After shopping for a while, we were feeling hungry, which means time for food. We had a very sumptuous Christmas Eve dinner. It was yummilicious ! Love the food at Pearl River Palace. We ate till so full. Loving the sashimi and mini buddha jump over the wall.

While dining, fashionably yours received lots of messages wishing me Merry Christmas. The messages never stop till the wee hours.......so many people and friends love me and remembering to wish me. So blissful. Of course, I wish them all back. The most sweetest messages I received was from Dan, the boy, who is now in his hometown in Down Under. He was at home with family watching carols by the candlelights. He is really sweet. Will catch up with him again when he flies back to the Lion City in Feb 2009. Really miss that boy. A few other sweet messages are from my Big's friends, who are now our mutual friends. Though my big is in the big Apple city now, these friends are still thinking of me in their heart. Very touching indeed.
Alrighty, here is wishing everyone Joy, Peace, Love and Happiness for a Blessed Christmas from Fashionably yours. Enjoy the festive holidays.
PS. I pray to be together with my special someone in my next Christmas celebrations. We can celebrate together with friends, love ones and families, as long as he is by my side. Amen.

The Alkaff Bridge (Art Bridge)
The very fresh sashimi, our green tea and sake Tempura
It has nice atmoshpere and lots of Japanese were dining there. After we are done with our Japanese food, we went for our drinks and desserts at Le Amis’s Canelé Pâtisserie Chocolatier (11 Unity Street, Robertson Walk #01-09). Love this place and the chocolates.
His Almond Hot Chocolate's Drink
The Classic Hot Chocolate drink (a must try) which fashionably yours had
He was telling me this is so cute and he also likes to drnk this
Chocolate & Strawberry ice cream (Yummy)
Both of us were so full, so we strolled around Clarke Quay and dropped by the AQUA party. Wanted to say Hi to our friend Alex, but he was not in at that point of time when we were there. So we continued strolling.
We were yearning for a glass of red wine so we dropped by The Wine Connection at 11 Unity Street#01-06 Robertson Walk Singapore 237995.
Our Petit Noir Wine
I like the wine at The Wine Connection. Petit Noir is light and I enjoyed it. So we just sipped our wine, chatted and laughed a lot till the wee hours.
We also chatted alot of things and we had very good discussion with each other which is good, so that we can understand each other. In other words we communicate alot.
All in all we enjoyed each other company with nice food - Japanese food, Chocolate drinks and end our night with wine....We both love to drink wine.
