A big merry xmas to everyone, and thank you for coming to the party and made this 6th installment of the annual xmas eve party at my humble little place as happening as successful as ever!

Thanks to the power of Robb & Nuffnang, this year we had Heineken sponsoring the house party with plenty of beer, a canopy, and even food (including freshly grilled satey!). Suanie also got her friends from thebaloonimages.com to decorate up the place with plenty of balloons too!

Hence, this year we had the whole works, nice decorations, food, drinks, and even party kits! My house almost looked like a wedding kenduri from far. But it was awesome. :D


did you notice the satey man?

From the facebook photo album tags, there were over 45 or so people in attendance. There were lot of old faces from previous parties turned up, and quite a few new comers too.

The previous attendees were: Suanie, Kerol, Gareth, Kim, Ee Laine, Horng, Yee Hou, Terence, Huey Fang, Hwa Chai, Wei Yi, Michael, Elfie, Rachel, Selina, Tock, Rebecca, Jaime, Janice, Shiang, Wai Meng, Reta, Mohan, Eiling, and Zoe.

New comers include: Haze, Robb, Tim, Audrey, Su Ann, Suet Li, Eric, Jaclyn, Ruby, Nazrul, Richard, San San, Nigel, Li Ling, Thomas, Arthur, Ginny, Desmond, and Vanessa.

Brief encounter: Reta’s bf, Eric, showed up for a bit to pick her up, as with another Wai Meng who had to send Elfie back earlier cos she wasn’t feeling well.

Oh.. and the petrol car came by with a cop, followed by 2 petrol cars some 15 minutes later with 3 friendly police officers asking us to .. tone it down at about 2 something in the morning.


turkey and roast pork for xmas eve dinner

Just before the party got started, the #porkgang actually prepared a nice dinner with a big turkey, a couple kilograms of roast pork, vegetable, bacon pasta, and even butter bread puddings for ourselves. Jaclyn and Kim did most of the cooking while Terence handled the roast pork business, and boy, everything was so delicious!

That got us all ready to roll for the party.


don’t you want to look like a green superhero too?

As usual, most guests came later than the official 8:30pm start time with the exception of a few. Traffic on the day was pretty horrendous too, so I guess that could be served as an excuse of sort.

There were plenty of cold Heinekens to go around, and inside the party pack were some pretty cool costumes too. We had quite a bit of fun with those, until it started to feel a bit too warm to be wearing capes and hats… oh well.


the bong made quite a few ppl sprayed back out its content

Ever the inventer, Terence brought a home-made bong to the party and was trying to convince people to try his concoction via the funnel. I don’t think anyone actually managed to swallow the drinks without at least spilling half of it on the floor.

Absinthe + beer isn’t exactly a very desirable taste, especially when it’s channeling through the pipe directly to your throat, I supposed. Huey Fang and Hwa Chai probably sprayed 90% of it on the floor.


and the gift exchange got started!

We got the gift exchange started by 12 am, right when Super Late Su Ann arrived.

As with every year, everyone draws a number (40 gifts intotal this year), and then system works this way:

  • the person who drew #1 picks a gift from the pile (giver’s names are written on the gifts)
  • #2 onwards gets to hijack one of the opened gifts, or pick from the pile
  • if your gift got hijacked, you get to hijack another one, ad infinitum


we had bak kua, godiva chocolate, tumbler, and even cigarettes *gasp*

The person with the smallest number usually lose out, the one with the biggest number has highest advantage, theoretically speaking anyway.

With the rules in place, there were a lot of gifts exchanging hands (most of the time very reluctantly). It was to the point where we had to start limiting the exchange since some rounds had over 7-8 hijackings.


Haze wasn’t too happy with Penang Asam Laksa, but liked the War Craft

Among the most sought after gifts were a set of banana republic cocktail shaker, a really nice laptop bag, original war craft games, bak kua, Haze’s painting, Starbucks planner, and the geometrical rubik’s cube.

The more unfortunate gifts were adult diapers, giant rubber chicken, tiny toy guitar, and shaver.

The most unorthodox gift was from Yee Hou, a few packets of Asam Laksa he tapau all the way from Penang on the same day!


emotional roller coaster, you thought you get to keep those gifts? hijacked!

The gift exchange took over 1.5 hours to get done, but it was really the highlight of the night, I thought it was very fun!

We continued to party for a little while, and started winding it down after the cops came for the second time. For whatever reasons, these dudes actually cheered when the petrol car showed up for the first time. The party wouldn’t have been complete then I supposed.

Oh, by the way according to his tweet, Yee Hou puked when he got home after drinking only one beer at the party, hohohoho.

Thank you guys for coming and made this an awesome party, lets do it again next year!

  43. Dear KY,

    Will be heading over to my friend’s party later and there will be a gift exchanging going on as well. I am very interested with how your gift exchanging actually works. Say the #10 guy were to pick a gift and he choose to hijack #5’s gift, so #5 and #10 have to exchange their gifts right? and then #5 has the right to hijack another person’s gift?

    I see this game is real FUN, but getting the details right would make it even more exciting ;) Merry Christmas my friend.

    • Kenneth: ya it’s real fun. #5 can pick up from the pile or get from others that are opened. Merry xmas!
