Christmas eve party 2010

It was that time of the year again, all of us put our busy schedule aside and get together to celebrate Christmas. It was a big crowd, 20 of us and everyone bought a plate and a present for Kris Kringle. We sure were the noisiest bunch in the whole area. How did I know? I could hear them laughing miles away when I brought Ace for his night walk.

This embrace the spirit of Christmas, all of us decided to wear either green or red. It should look very nice in a photo.

It was really good fun, had plenty of laughter, good catch up with everyone, food was sensational and Ace had plenty to socialize with Jeeme and Tarzy as well.

Kris Kringle was exciting as well, not knowing what presents everyone will be getting. We are very happy with our presents, especially my egg timer. :D Now I can make perfect hard boiled eggs every time!

The photos below were taken by our reliable friends, Carrie and Hennley. We thought that we should leave the photo taking to the pros and we were right! They were much better at it than us.

Our delicious Christmas eve dinner - plenty of selections

Mine a-tad-spicy chicken wings

Aries's very-delicious roast lamb (worth mentioning as he is a vegetarian)

Melbourne photoshoot

We always wanted to have some really nice casual photos of ourselves. We all know too well that nice photo comes with a huge price tag.

Jon Low was in town, early November, together with his brother, Yit Chuan, they did us a massive massive favor to be our photographer for the day.Well, we were just happy to be their puppet. We admire his work very much and by looking at the photos below, you'll understand why. We were amazed by his vision through his lens and an eye for details. 

It was a sensational day to shoot, it was fun, relaxed, the sun was out and towards the end of the shoot, it rained a little. We were able to have some nice shots in the rain.

Thank you Jon for the beautiful photos. We love it!

Ace - addition to our family

The last 2 months have gone by really quickly - that's because we were enjoying every minute of it with Ace. He's a Schnoodle breed, a cross between Schnauzer and Poodle. My mom thinks it sounds more like a dish and a breed. Hehe...

We were looking around for a companion for a while and when we met him, we both fall in love with him. We went back the very next day to bring him back home. 

It has been a joy since!

He was only 7 weeks old at approximately 1.5kg when we brought him home. Now he's almost 4kg at 15 weeks. He's definitely growing fast! He was very shy at first, after bringing him to puppy social class esand mix around with puppies, he developed a lot of confidence and able to stand tall among other adult dogs. Good job Ace!
