Merry Christmas 2010
Merry Christmas everybody.
Still, I did not actually put up Christmas tree this year. (Last year, I put the tree up early, also took it down on Christmas Day.) Well, I did managed to get a different kind of tree up: electronic version.
(as usual, more photos follow...)
Yep, it is this year's Christmas tree. Quick assembling, mess free, and no (physical) space required after taking it down. As a tradition, I put all the gifts under the tree.
Well, either Santa was hit by the global financial crisis or having problem finding this year's digital Christmas tree, the amount of gifts are down compared to last year. (To Don: nowhere near yours)
Besides, the digital Christmas tree (on Sony TV). (to Don: the Sony TV is small) I also made a special Christmas Macaron Tree.
Laurent made the macarons, however, he told me it was not possible to make a Christmas tree out of macarons without ruin them. He told me that more than 3 layers, the macarons, the macarons would be crushed as bottom layer of macarons won't be able to hold the weight. And edible glue won't work.
I told him that I could make a Christmas tree out of macarons without using glues or toothpicks. I build a macaron holder out of thick paper (190 gsm).
It is still a kind of Christmas tree.
Oh, for the record, we broke our tradition of opening the presents right after midnight on Christmas Day. As a matter of fact, we haven't opened any presents. We will leave them for Boxing Day this year.
Also a special note for Don: About 80% of people there have an iPhone, either iPhone 3G, 3GS or iPhone 4, and not just young adults! Also quite a few iPads around there as well. Of course iPad was one of the main topic there. This indicates iPhones and iPads are popular, and they are NOT that expensive.
Don must be enjoying his beautiful white Christmas. No white Christmas here.
Sorry Don: the macaron we used were French macarons (Macaron de Paris), not the American macaroons (different spelling, and different pronunciation).
Merry Christmas everybody.
