Christmas Morning!

We woke up real early to get ready for Church. Came home around 10.30am and the first thing we did were to open all our presents. We take turn for each of us to open up all our presents first and I get to open last because mine was huge.

Diana looking for her presents.

She was happy with what she got :) We also got her a huge suitcase for her to take with her to Germany.

Next is Carlos turn
The most anxious moment for me. Wondering what he got for me! You know what I was saying here "why so much garbage in here"
Still have no clue what is in there except a whole bunch of paper! Keep digging!!
See what I got!! Can you guess yet?

A NEW CANON REBEL XSI CAMERA!!! This is my dream camera. I was hoping to get another digital camera from him but not this but I am so glad he got it for me as every food bloggers dream of having a DSLR camera like this. Now he said he must send me for some photography lesson in order to use this camera. Thank you Sweetie.

Ok, time to make some waffles for breakfast!

Happy Christmas, Gert, to you and your family! :)

That's just so put your present inside a huge box, then stuff it with loads of papers. He's such a funny guy! :)

Nice camera too. Can't wait to see more great pictures from you.

Oh! Untung you. This camera is very good. You can keep clicking and picture comes out nice. I cannot wait to see your work. Carlos is so funny with his garbage.:-)
Murphy did the same to Tina's present. But he used many wrappers and boxes.

Gert, you lucky food blogger, wife, mother, friend, you!!!!! I guess the best present doesn't have to come in a small box kan? Carlos has proven it.

Cat, you apa kurangnya :) No.. I just want the camera to take better pix and not to be photographer. ME...LOSING WEIGHT!! I wish :( :(

Yasmin, how are you doing? Happy Holidays to you and your family too :)

Kay, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too! Yea typical of Carlos. He wanted to throw me off guard if not I would have guess he got me a camera :)

Lesley, yeap I got my wish :) Will need sometime to learn how to use the camera :) Don't worry I am sure Eliot will get you one too :)

Zue, Carlos tu put all the garbage from the basement from bags of old clothing to garbage. Patut lah berat!

Ummi, I balik sorang sorang and have too many things to take with me so I don't think I will bring this hunk back with me. Don't worry I bring my good old trusted digital camera balik and kita tangkap gambar puas puas yea :)

Wiz, ha ha.. yeap. By the way, can you e.mail me your phone number. Nanti sampai rumah talipon you yea :)
