438# Merry Christmas

It's Christmas eve now and I'm home bound.

I didn't even notice that today is the eve, I have been lost track to dates ever since my elective started.

Christmas trees are everywhere, at every major malls which I went.

It's a good reminder for people. These decorations reminds of people of the festival, so that people will shop for Christmas presents for their friends and family.

So in that way, spending a small amount of money for these decorations can stimulate the business of the shopping complex. Isn't that just brilliant?

And I guess that applies for all the festivals in our country throughout the year.

Christmas is never part of my celebration list. I used to follow my friends to go to the Churches for celebrations, about a thousand years back. I also went to friends' houses for turkeys.

Ever since I went to the university, I took out this festival from my celebration list. Therefore, it's been a while since I accept any Christmas gift from people.

Oh yes, we did have Christmas gift exchange during the pre-clinical school days. And that time our university always have celebrations for it and we got free food and sketches going on there.

Having said so, I just remembered that last year I performed during Christmas in the clinical school. I was on the drums for a short song and Dr. Sheila and Esther were on the vocals, along with a group of choir.

And I left after my performance and went to the lounge to study.

This year, I missed the Christmas performance in the university because I'm currently away and doing my selective. During this period, apart from the Christmas celebration, I also missed out the chance to perform for Diwali night!

They were short of drummer that time and I was asked to go back to help. I really wanted to but I was doing my attachment in KL that time so I have to decline them. Chances of me being on stage for music performance is getting lesser and lesser now, sad.

I guess Christmas is just not my kind of thing. I'm going to meet up with a few sticks from my university tomorrow for lunch and at night, another stick for guitar stuff.

Few days ago I saw Santa and I requested to take a photo with him. I snatched his ukulele from him and he did this flying pose. A nice guy who has done a great job in attracting people's attention there.

Under the white beard I could see his perfectly fair skin. I think he was from Korvatunturi in Lapland Province, no doubt for that.

Merry Christmas people. May Santa makes your wallet thicker.

That's my wish.
