Festivity stock-take

Not only has the Christmas festivites given me a rounder tummy, the holiday season has also made me lazy to post. I could possibly crank out nostalgic reminiscences about all the wonderful food and drinks I guzzled over the long weekend, but as I am already filled to the brim with food, I don't think I can handle any more mention of food. (Let's not forget New Year isn't here yet, and that's another round of imbibing).

This year, I had another good haul of pressies - some of my favourites are the handmade truffles which came in a handmade Tiffany-coloured box, a Boys are Smelly car freshener, a cute tube of Miso Pretty lip-balm, a bright orange digital clock, and a Bodum coffee-maker (which I will use for tea instead). But by far the best early Christmas present was the offer of a job last week. After coming back from Cambodia, I had two more phone interviews, and on Thursday afternoon, the company's HR guy called me to offer me the job. When he detailed the pay package, I almost dropped my phone and had to coolly ask him, "I'm sorry, could you please repeat that?" It was way, way, way beyond my wildest dreams, and immediately put away any doubts I had in my head about whether to accept the position. Hoorah! I have a new job for the new year!
