Express Christmas

express christmas

Have you heard of Express Christmas? No? Well, it’s when you can’t celebrate it on the day itself, so you wing it, gather a bunch of friends and celebrate it in advance.


…and that’s just what I did at Sid’s, TTDI.


You can’t have a proper Christmas party without some beer…


Buckets of Heineken to spread the festive cheer. I figured Heineken would do the trick nicely – it’s a cool and refreshing beer perfect for our climate. It doesn’t exactly snow here so mulled wine and warm eggnog doesn’t provide the same satisfaction.


There’s this trick where you try to blow a distorted cap into the bottle. It can be done, just like that balance-the-coin-on-the-lemon-suspended-in-liquid tipping jar. It’s just close to impossible.


Samantha tried it.


Kim tried it. Both to no avail.


Oh, speaking of which, say hello to the newly-weds. πŸ™‚


Lainey had this reindeer thing on her head. That’s me with the Santa hat…drinking on the job. Rudolph go! πŸ˜€

beer jenga

Heineken Jenga. I built this slightly (actually very) unwieldy contraption with a bit of help from everyone.

Rules: Everyone pulls one bottle and the person who makes it fall drinks. Kids, do not try this at home or at all. πŸ˜‰


You wanna come sit on Santa’s lap? πŸ˜‰ I can’t grant you a wish but I do have…er, lollipops to give out. smirk

stupid trick

Kim also pulled this trick on me. It’s really funny, ask her to show you.


Christmas is all about good company. I’ll be in Bali for Christmas so I’m glad I got the chance to celebrate my own Express Christmas with my closest friends. πŸ™‚

    • Hello Lisa! I didn’t know you were in KL! 😑

      Haha! Yeah, that was damn funny, but I don’t think a pub is an appropriate place to play Heineken jenga…better do it outside. πŸ™‚

      Hey, have a great Christmas ya, I’m off to Bali in a couple of days. πŸ˜€

    • Haha! Thanks Ann! πŸ™‚

      Yup, Christmas can be done in advance, that Express Christmas bit was all Modern Family. πŸ˜€

      Merry Christmas! πŸ™‚

    • Well, if you’re a Christian, then celebrate it in a church by all means! πŸ™‚

      Hey, my dad is a Christian.

      …but not all of us are, some are atheists, some are agnostics, some have other religions, so Christmas is just another holiday. Tolerance, my friend.

      Merry Christmas! πŸ˜€

    • Thanks Charmaine!

      Haha! Yeah, I celebrated it in advance too. Got the inspiration from this episode of Modern Family where they just pulled a Christmas party together in 4 hours flat. πŸ™‚

      Cheers! I’m flying off this Friday but have fun!

      Merry Christmas! πŸ˜€

  1. I always work through Xmas as my job entails shift-work and I let the ppl with families have it off. But what i do is make sure my New Years Eve is free so I can celebrate a fantastic New Year with my friends! (And choice of legal/illegal substances πŸ˜‰ BTW, congrats on being a NAPBA finalist, and hope to see you sometime in 2012 when I return to KL.

    • Heh! Sounds like an awesome plan Leanne!

      …actually not to dissimilar to my Christmas in Bali. πŸ˜‰

      I’m not quite sure if I’m sober right now.

      Thanks Leanne!

      Same to you, have an awesome New Years Eve and see you when you come back to KL!
