Another year, another Xmas party at SS3. This was the 9th Xmas party we had at my place since I moved here, with the exception of 2010.
xmas eve party at KY’s, 2013
This year, we used our gas grill for some pork chop that I marinated, and set up another charcoal grill for our Muslim friends.
Party got started at around 8, and we were lucky that the weather cooperated despite Accuweather forecasted a bit of thunderstorm, so thank you for lying again, Accuweather!
we had a non-halal and a halal grill going on
There were a lot of new faces as well as returning friends to the party this year.
Those who were here before:
KY, Haze, Horng, Yuki, EeLaine, Suan, David, Winnie, Michael, Lance, Melissa, Ruby, Douglas, Yee Hou.
it took Fresh 8 tries to finally get her gift – a water gun
And the new faces who joined us this year:
Evelyn, Dennis, Pearl, Pearl’s bf, Ruby’s guy, Suching, Pauline, Kelly, Sheng, Min, Shah, Angel, Fuad, Ecky, Sat, Sliz, Jon, Latha, Lisa.
So it was 14 + 19 = 33 people, right around our average every year, a big thank you for everyone who made it. For those who missed the party, next year ya!
my gift was MyKuali white curry mee, was a hit!
As usual, our gift exchange had some different rules to the norm:
- every participant contribute a gift worth over RM 30, and then draw a number from the box
- smallest number start by picking and unwrapping a gift
- next number can snatch the opened gift, whereby the person who lost it gets to choose another gift, or snatch another opened gift
- you’re not allowed to snatch the same gift you had before
Kelly, SuChing, Ecky, Haze, Angel, Dennis, Melissa, Eelaine
Just to mess up with the guys, I actually gave a pretty good gift this year – 16 packs of MyKuali Penang white curry mee instant noodle. Arguably the most sought after instant noodle on the market right now, it exchanged hands 6 different times and finally ended up on Winnie’s possession.
Ruby’s guy, Sheng, David, Shah, Sliz, Ruby, Horng, Min
The biggest victim of the night was Fresh, she took 8 tries before finally settled on the water gun that she can use to torment Cendawan, all her other gifts (snatched or opened) were taken by other people, so many highs and so many disappointments, hahaha.
Douglas, Suching, Pauline, Pearl’s guy, Yee Hou, Lance, Melissa, Fuad
Some of the other highly saught after gifts include a bottle of Jack Daniel, a Joker figurine, a pair of wide angle & fisheye lens for smart phone (I got it!), a pack of Somersby apple cider, nanodots magnet toy, a bag of bacon, number 8 magic ball, tumbler, tictac, and more.
It was a fun night and I hope everyone enjoyed. The men in blue never came this year, breaking a tradition of sort.
See you guys next year!
