Woke up late again, too late for breakfast. Poor Q-tip is quite disappointed as she hasn't gone out for a few days already, so late and so lazy we are.

We went to Mom-in-law's to deliver her Christmas present, belated as we didn't have the opportunity to see her over the Christmas period. We also brought along 3 large cans of cream crackers for mom-in-law to take with her to the community centre where she's volunteering to help with the logistics of the donations being sent over to the tsunami victims.

Went to McD's for lunch where we acquired a white uni and a yellow aisha to accompany the scorchio, lupe and ixi already hanging out in my study. At lunch 'rah SMSed to remind me about tonight's BBQ at Rach's. See pix below...

03A2 New Year's BBQ 2005 Posted by Hello

An evening of pyromania and again too much food. 40 chicken wings, 100 sticks of otah, mounds of fishballs, crabstix and franks, 2 packs of marshmallows, and not enough of us to finish it all.

Everyone's got or is getting some kind of job to keep them occupied until the 'A' results come out. Mostly minimum wage, service industry jobs; but also the best way to inspire a desire to pursue tertiary studies as soon as the opportunity arises. Or not... who knows what other opportunities might arise while on the job? Just keep your eyes and options open, is my best advice.

Rach opened up 2 boxes of sparklers which we tentatively lit at first, then soon after greedily consumed the whole lot in a pyromanic frenzy in the playground opposite her house. Check it out! The rest of the photos are here.
