That's it again for another year, mind you it is always a relatively quiet time over here for me, it's not the same as the UK. Christmas Eve we went out to the local Theme Park, Happy Valley, where the locals all seem to congregate on any of their holiday periods, they love being in a crowd. We had a steak dinner at Wang's Steakhouse before we entered which was quite good food. In the theme park it became a little obvious that they have Christmas and Halloween a little mixed up here as half of the folk were in Santa suits and the other half in Halloween masks and witches hats! They had a few shows on in the park, we only got to see one of them which was a sort of kids outdoor show. which had a group, a few dancers and a couple of the inevitable (these days) rappers. the group were a little crap really, the lead guitarist was in a world of his own and didn't take any notice of the rhythms that the drummer and bass guitarist were using, so it all got a bit out of sync. We didn't get home till after midnight due to the heavy traffic on the way out.
Christmas day was spent, well half of it still in bed, quietly we had an evening dinner out with a couple of friends and then home again. The temperature dropped a few degrees Christmas day and is still a bit cooler than previously, down to around 15 deg C at the moment, so Jacket on for now.
So I hope all of you had yourself a good time for Christmas, I won't mention turkeys as they are non-existent here! so give yourselves a
