Is it ever too late to talk about it? Don't know. Don't care.
We are never big on this. Maybe it is our family. Maybe it is a Asian thing. But we will only get 1 thing from our relatives. And we aren't doing the "big" gathering like we used to when my grandparents were still alive. So it is lucky if I got 5 gifts total. Material thing is not important... da dee da dee da. But it's nice to receive a HEARTFELT gift. I mean it is something with thoughts put into it. The focus is the sentimental value, not so much about the monetary value. It would mean much more if I have received a paw print painting from Gigi than a tube of Chanel from my aunt (most likely a brand new tester tube from her work). You see? (My family and friends will always be considered a great gift. So is Jesus's salvation is the bestest gift. And Gigi, of course!!!!!!!!!!) I haven't even bought myself any "official" gift. I bought myself stuff all the time. Lately too many lippies (includes colored and/or clear products/treatment)... Orange Thyme lip balms are good. And some new matte Jordana I have bought. My lippie drawer is overflowed. I think I have like 100. Anyway.
Back to Christmas gifts I got. I got small amount of cash from my parents. A Starbucks mug from one of my uncle/aunt and tester-cosmetic (lots of highend stuff) from my other uncle/aunt and that's it. Nothing from Gigi. I did gave her a few things though. Anyway, it does not matter. I just want to say it.
However, I have bought me an official birthday gift. :D Not counting the lippies (2 Gerald lipsticks, multiple lip balms-some are back ups, like the Hurraw Moon Balm etc etc etc). I got me the Mr. S concert DVD!!! :D And I should really go on a no-buy and do a big cleaning of my stuff. I always feel good after a good thorough cleaning/organizing session. So I shall do that this Saturday. A partial in my office anyway. :)
This morning Gigi was very naughty. I returned to my room after my shower, she usually just take her first nap. But I came back to a messy room, she messed up my bed, her bed and pooped on the floor. -_- Then I kept her out of my room so I can clean and calm down... then she decided it's good to be on my parents' bed. I was expecting her to wait outside of my room. ;_; My baby is all grown up.
Received my SMAP CD from the Smap Shop. It is an interesting track. I love getting good mail. I would be getting quite a bit this month. :) Ordered a new shower gel and face cream the other day. My skin is so dry. My face too. It's so annoying.
