It is just the onset of summer. The capricious weather is as worse as the Highness's whimsical mood. Last few days were hot like hell & the temperature even went up to 40 degree celcius. Just when i thought the cold spell is finally over, the temperature plunged again. First it was the ominous dark clouds, then without any warning, rain started dropping. The overnight shower simply swept off the heat n leave me trembling on my working chair like a nobody-kid now. A 72 hrs straight downpour? Geez.. its gonna be depressing. (i shall overcome it thou)
I can feel the festive mood welling inside me, compounded by the whole xmas theme on my pc, the glittery christmas lights along the streets, the oh-so-tall floating christmas tree at Lagoa, the christmas tunes from radio station(come to think of it, why dont they hv an exclusive station that plays only xmas carol? i m so gonna tune in to it days n nights), and definitely the gushing excitement of being able to see the people i miss so much soon!
The office secretaries organise an advance xmas party. Nothing big, just a small BYOFood gathering AND the 'secret friend' gift exchange. Thats how it works. We get to pick the name of our 'secret friend' written on a paper note from a pandora box weeks ago, and then everybody could start go gaga over the xmas present shopping ritual. And then in the party, someone will start the ball rolling by describing his/her secret friend, and everybody will make a guess of who that 'secret fren' is, followed by gift exchange. My secret friend is Jeane, whose bday is one day before mine. Wat a coincidence.. we happened to pick each others name and we exchanged our gifts. =D
The Prig announced his upcoming one month vacation. Oooh... all of us agreed thats the most worth celebrating reason! CHEERS =D
