Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas to youuuu~

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everybody! Here's hoping you'll be surrounded with your loved ones and everything that is dear to you all this holiday season. And may the year 2012 be awesome for everyone, whether it is the last year for all of us or not.

I'm in the mood for rock all of a sudden. I realized that I started the year really hardcore, and then it slowly mellowed out to oldies and slow rhythms and stuff. It's good to know I still appreciate the goodness of J-Rock and whatnot. Red by Gazette is an amazing song for me (and named after my favourite colour too =P), but I still think D'espairsray is the best JRock band I've listened to yet. Why must the good ones all disband? Why oh why.

2011. How has it been? Looking back, it felt like an awfully long year. So so many new experiences, so many things accomplished, and yet even more are still undone. Most nights I'm lying in my bed trying to recall all the things I did this year, everything that happened. I'll try piecing them a bit better and prepare a nice long post about it as a 2011 wrap up. Pinky promise.

For now, it's Christmas Eve, and it's so cold it feels as if it could snow. No sun, cloudy, a hint of drizzle here and there. I went out to the garden in the morning with DeeDee to take a couple of shots of the raindrops hanging on the passionfruit vines and the large leaves.

I can't remember the last time I went out into the garden during a shower. It's still my favourite kind of weather though. When it's cool and the world outside is full of raindrops and grey, and the inside is warm with yellow lamps and soft pillows and fluffy slippers. Plus the lighting is just right for nice photography, in my opinion. The only problem would be avoiding raindrops from plopping on the camera and your head.

Just that right about now things are a bit too cold and empty to be comfortable. Or maybe it's just me.

About an hour more to go. Merry Christmas everybody.
