Zen fountain

Some of you may know that I am getting older today. Well, I can't do much about that.

Laurent has mastered the art of wrapping gifts not in the guessable shape. I failed to guess any.

One of the very nice gift is the Zen water fountain Laurent gave me.

Zen water fountain

I like this Zen water fountain when I first saw it in Japan City. I would have bought it myself one day.

Well, I've been a very good boy. Laurent told me that I can only open one box every two hours, and I did follow that. Laurent learnt well on how to disguise gifts by using big boxes and add some more weight into it. I tricked Laurent last Christmas on all the presents.

Besides the beautiful Zen water fountain, I also received a DVD movie, one Wii game, two PS3 games, and six sets of (Maxwell and Williams) Cashmere cup and saucer. Those were the cups and saucers I want, but waiting for the discounts in Myer. I might post photos of those cups and saucers next time.

Laurent even organised to have Jessica, Nerida and Eddie to have come over for a surprise dinner. It worked very well as I did not suspect Laurent at all. (I usually doubt whatever Laurent said, but for some unknown reason I did not doubt at all this time.)

I also tried Don's favourite Mountain Dew for the very first time today. The sweetness is quite strong, and a different kind of sweet (compared to Coca-Cola and Pepsi). I don't think my judgement tonight would be fair as I've been drinking champagne and wine.

Well, here it is, Antony is officially another year older today. Thank you Laurent for organising a surprise Birthday dinner and nice presents.

So much for Remote Village ties. We were not included in the party invitation!

Thanks guys.
Sorry Rev. Dr. Wu Yi, I did not invite anyone at all.
Yes, the Apple Remote is from Sam, thanks. And I use it for controlling my MacBook Pro as I usually use my MacBook Pro in the living room.
