Alot of stuffs have been happening lately, namely in preps for all the events next week – the week before christmas. While most the limelight is on Christmas shopping for PS3 and Nintendo Wii, there’s chalet planning on my side, ironically for only one day as I would be flying off to Medan for a volunteer community service program.

Which will encompassing a visit to an orphanage, teaching children arts and crafts for the coming festive season.

Chalet wise next week, Derrick & I would still be in charge of food for the upcoming Track & Field Chalet next week, tentative Sunday IMM Giant to purchase all the stuff there. Then I will stay only till Monday night before my flight on Tuesday morning.

😉 Then it will be christmas dinner to look forward too thereafter.
