My family doesn’t celebrate Christmas, so here I am, on Christmas eve, spending some quiet time alone at home with my book and a dvd. The only thing missing would be the snow.

How’s everyone else celebrating Christmas?

  2. Hi Joanne!Me again!Just stopping by to say….Merry x’mas!

  3. It’s always nice to read your blog. So true about yourself and your thoughts. Would u be willing to share some of the tips in keeping yourself in good shape, preferably by email? Thanks.

  4. Hello Joanne! Hmm, this yr Christmas is kind of boring for me. Will be going out but won’t really celebrate. Jia You for ur career!!

  5. Hey, Joanne! I’ll be like having the same Christmas Eve as you. I’m currently on a book by Jodi and I borrowed dvds as well. I didnt went out with friends this Christmas as I’ll need to go back to school on the 26th for test! need to do some last minute prep wk. school’s such a spoiler. hahas. nevertheless, enjoy your season holidays! Merry Christmas!!!

  7. Joanne,

    Merry Christmas To u.. Hope u enjoy urself for this lovely & fun Christmas… Must take gd care of urself.. Cos I dun want to see my frez unhappy.. Cos there are some1 already make me worry.

  8. hi Joanne!

    最近几年特别不喜欢人多喧闹的感觉,可能因为我是“老人家”呵呵,所以这几年的圣诞节都是在家里,和一帮同样“无趣”的朋友一起吃吃喝喝,谈天说地!也是别有一番情趣!你很喜欢雪吗?我也是!你在有冬天和雪的地方度过过圣诞节吗?来新加坡太久了,体验过第一次穿着清凉庆祝除夕的新奇感觉,也适应了这里的一切!唯一想念的就是家乡的冬天,还有在漫天大雪中度过纯白色的圣诞节!
    ok all the best for you and merry christmas!

  9. Hee, staying at home practicing my zhongruan (chinese orchestra instrument). Most of my friends probably had appointments. Guess it will be quite late to ask also. Merry Xmas to u! =)

  10. Merry xmas Joanne.

  11. Hey, Joanne! I’d spend my Christmas Eve just the same as yours. I got a great book in hand and dvds as accompaniment this year and will be going for Christmas dinner buffet tomorrow. Well, I got to do some last minute preparatory work before my test on the 26th, a day after Christmas. School’s such a spoiler… hahahas. Nevertheless, enjoy the Season Holidays and Merry Christmas to you!!!

    P.S I enjoy reading “Starting Anew”&”The Tenth Circle” posts written by you. I’m an avid reader of Jodi’s works too.
    (:

    Ho, Ho and Double Ho,

  12. HiHi Joanne!

    Merry Christmas to you first of all! Oh I will be celebrating Christmas in the Heart Of God Chruch. They have a list of activities and events planned there such as the live band, prayer and sermon adn all kinds of sumptious food!!

    Next, maybe to my cousin’s house for barbecue which is at his chalet and not forgetting to visit the Escape Theme Park adn Wild Wild Wet..

    LAstly, I will definitely stay tune to the tv channel8 at 9pm to watch 《黄金路〉。This is die die must watch one .Lolx..

    Have a white and blessed christmas!

    Just want to share a quote:-

    “I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.”

    ~Charles Dickens

    -Sheng KAng =)

  13. wad dvd u watching??

  14. Haha, no special programme planned for x’mas this year. So will stay at home and spend some quality time with family LOL!!!

    Merry Christmas to you!!!! 😀

  19. hey! merry xmas to you! takecare 😀

  20. merry christmas!

  21. I’m watching National Treasure on Dvd before catching the 2nd movie on the cinema screens later this week. Haha how I wish there would be snow too, Boo. Well hope you enjoy reading the book and watching the dvd. =]

  22. Blessed Christmas Joanne! 🙂 Somehow christmas makes me feel a little sentimental, & yes snow does add to the whole notion of christmas aint it? But it can be enjoyed by just simply reading your book & watching your DVD too yea? 😉

  23. You know you’ve grown up when none of the things you want for Christmas can be bought at a store.

  24. yah! i’m FIRST! hoorays!

    my family dun celebrate xman too.
    so i’m at home watching korean dramas.

    hope u recieves lots of gifts.
    stay healthy. ^^

  25. hihi Joanne,
    Merry Chirstmas to u and ur family,even though ur family does not celebrate chirstmas!!Yah,snow..how would it be if there is snow in Singapore now,it would be so cool!!:)I juz came back frm Bintan today,hve u been there before??And wat DVD do u watch at home…juz wishing u another merry chirstmas and a happy new year!!:)

  26. Merry Xmas to you too..I’m spending my Xmas reading your blog =)

  27. Merry Xmas to you too! I’m spending Xmas at home reading your blog! =)

  28. Merry Christmas!same as me stay at home being good boy.(i don’t mean i can be a bad guy.)

  29. Merry Christmas to you!
    well…i don’t really celebrate too…
    just went out with my good friends…
    and that will be enough!haha

  30. Merry Xmas to you too, Joanna. Glad to know that you managed to have some time to yourself on Xmas, given that artistes usually have very packed schedules! Quiet times for oneself could be a blessing too 🙂

    During these few days, I’ve managed to meet up with friends and attended xmas celebrations. Though tiring, I would say that I do appreciate the effort of those who organize such events! This a also a good time to catch up with everyone before the year ends.

    Time really flies doesn’t it? Hope you’ve received many many gifts from your loved ones. More important, I guess would be the gift of unconditional love and care from one’s family~

    ~~Enjoy your current read~~

  31. Spending some quality time at home is better than being out and not knowing where to go or what to do. Well, technically, not really QUALITY time, as you spent your night with your book and DVD. But I would call it a quality time, as long as you could sit down and do things that you would remember for a long time. 🙂

    As for me, I don’t celebrate Christmas either. YouTube doesn’t sound that bad now, eh? Playing Christmas songs and lighting up some candles would help to bring up the mood a little bit. But believe me, you wouldn’t want any snow on your Christmas. 🙂
    圣诞节快乐!

    PS: It’s cute to see your fans are mostly teenagers.

  32. mine also doesn’t celebrate x’mas. wishing you a jolly christmas & a wonderful new year!
    happy happy 🙂 !!!

  33. Read a book also on christmas eve.
    How bout going back to vjc ? haha

  34. Spent my eve at home too. Agree that the only missing component is the snow. Long for a true-blue white xmas.
    Merry Xmas to you and your family!

  35. Spent my eve at home too. Agree that the only missing component would be the snow. Long for a true-blue WHITE xmas. Merry Xmas to you and your family!

  61. Heya all,

    For those of you who asked about tips to keep in shape, it’s a bit hard for me to describe, because somehow exercise tips are always easier with visuals or sound. Nonetheless, I will trying to work something out, so look out for it okie?

    Meantime, enjoy the festive season but don’t overeat!

    Love,
    Joanne

  62. oops. i think i’ve flooded quite abit of ur comment box. sorry yeah. =)

  63. Hi Joanne
    Ho….Ho…Ho….Merry Christmas 🙂

    We actually have the same name…..but different surname.

  64. Hi Joanne,

    Merry Christmas to you too! For me, I spend my Christmas eve with my close JC friends at someone’s house, which we slangingly call ourselves the JC gang. Have a wonderfully full dinner due to some misplanning, and so we have so many food, when someone is already cooking. Suddenly, someone broughy 3 roast chickens, and a big choco-log cake. That is too much food for us to bear, so we take it slowly. Roast chickens / sometimes turkeys is a traditional custom for Christmas season, for reasons I m not sure.

    And kid not, instead of playing Mahjong, which is our tradition for almost every year, we play a new game, called wierdo Scrabble. I don’t know the real name of that game so I call it like this, but it plays a bit like Scrabble, except the most fun part which is different from Scrabble is you can build words on top of words already formed. Challenging right? Wonder if you have played it before?

    We ended by watching DVD movies all the way to the morning, but I could almost not keep my eyes open, even with the help of strong coffee. I am not a good night-owl, haiz, so usually I dun dawn overnight to study unless there is no choice. I think the only way to keep awake while watching shows is to choose some light-hearted comedian shows, that require little thinking to get the joke, and laugh all the way as you watch. Hee. 🙂

    Warmest Regards,
    Yoke Peng

  65. Though its past christmas for 2 hours already…i would still like to wish you a merry bleated christmas!

    You can record a clip and post it up. Everyone will love it. But that’s just a silly suggestion of mine. Given your tight schedule, its already so tough for you to blog what more to spare time for such stuff 😛

    btw, what cca were you from?

  66. Hi Joanne jie jie,

  67. If a fat man in red comes into your room in the middle of the night and shoves you into a bag, don’t be scared coz I told Santa i wanted a friend like you on christmas day.

    with Kisses And Hugs,
    Alicia

    当我老了 — 你是感动, 还是愧疚?
    循众要求, 这是怡凤和振荣在’有话就说’里朗读的, 附上文稿:

    《当我老了》——写给孩子的一封信

    当我老了,不再是原来的我。
    请理解我,对我有一点耐心。
    当我把菜汤洒到自己的衣服上时,
    当我忘记怎样系鞋带时,
    请想一想当初我是如何手把手地教你。

    当我一遍又一遍地重复你早已听腻的话语,
    请耐心地听我说,不要打断我。
    你从小的时候,我不得不重复那个讲过千百遍的故事,
    直到你进入梦乡。

    当我需要你帮我洗澡时,请不要责备我。
    还记得小时候我千方百计哄你洗澡的情形吗?
    当我对新科技和新事物不知所措时,请不要嘲笑我。
    想一想当初我怎样耐心地回答你的每一个“为什么”。

    当我由于双脚疲劳而无法行走时,请伸出你年轻有力的手搀扶我。
    就像你小时候学习走路时,我扶你那样。

    当我忽然忘记我们谈话的主题,请给我一些时间让我回想。
    其实对我来说,谈论什么并不重要,
    只要你能在一旁听我说,我就很满足。

    当你看着老去的我,请不要悲伤。
    理解我,支持我,就像你刚开始学习如何生活时我对你那样。

    当初我引导你走上人生的路,如今请陪我走完最后的路。
    给我你的爱和耐心,我会报以感激的微笑。
    这微笑中凝结着我对你无限的爱。

    My advice is simple and cheap; unless you have the budget to spend, the best, most effective exercise and also cheap option, is to jog for at least 2-3 km (can increase as your stamina improve) around your neighborhood or park every day. If it is too tedious for those who never exercise a lot, and decide to start exercising, I recommend 3-4 times a week, until you feel confortable with it. And it naurally becomes your routine in your life; you realize suddenly you can never live without it. 🙂 Hey it works for me, now I can never live without jogging; it becomes part of me.

    Running or jogging improves your physical health two ways: one is your cardio-vascular endurance. You realize you can breath more easily, and doesn’t get breathless easily, since your cardio endurance can let your body take in more physical stress, and more air volume (intake of oxygen and exhalation). Second, your leg luscle endurance goes up, and your leg power endurance improves. You realize you can walk for long distances without your leg muscles aching that fast. 🙂

    So I recommend running as the best form of exercise. Of course, there are other options, for you all to name. 🙂

    Regards to fans of Joanne,
    Yoke Peng

  92. Dear Joanne,

    You play tennis? Hope one day, can play tennis with you. I am a mediocre and beginner tennis player. Because I only go for a few lessons (i think 3 times) on tennis long time back during JC days. I think I might forget some basics of tennis, but can learn, and willing to learn 🙂 But the flesh is weak, because there are no opponents like you to play with. Hee 🙂

    Best Regards,
    Yoke Peng

  93. Hi joanne!
