As much as I could recall, my Christmas last year was definitely the most special Christmas in my life, so far.
It was quite an experience to be there at that time. To enjoy the Christmas mood and see the ang mohs prepare for the festival were certainly fun.
Almost everything there gave me this perception of “this is Christmas in London”. It was just wonderful.
To add to that, there was snow as well! It’s undoubtedly icing on the cake.
Besides all the hype about having Christmas over there, I managed to experience a traditional Christmas dinner.
I’ve never celebrated Christmas night with a special dinner before. It was my first time.
We had turkey meat, turkey stuffing, carrot, Brussels sprouts and parsnips with olive oil as our main course.
And for dessert, we had mince pie. It’s a small British sweet pie traditionally served during the Christmas season.
Oh yeah, we had champagne as well – which I really don’t like, but still took a photo with it…
And I was sort of ‘forced’ to wear a golden paper crown! Never mind, I shall call myself the King of the Champagne!
P/S: Aunty Winni, if you’re reading this. Thank you very much for the wonderful dinner! (Yes, I know it’s 1 year ago!)
So basically, that’s pretty much the Christmas I had over a year ago in London. Over there, Christmas is so well celebrated that even Harry Potter wishes everyone a Harry Christmas…
So last year, I couldn’t have had a better Christmas wish than to be celebrating it in London. I couldn’t have asked for more.
However, since I’ll be having Christmas here in Malaysia this year, I’m gonna make a wish…
Honestly, who doesn’t wish for that?
But Winter season is getting worse in Europe year after year. I doubt Santa would fulfill my wish. Hmm…
