Good luck Taxico, and all the best for 2014 to you. It's been an 'interesting' year for me too, but with a good ending*, so I'm really looking forward to the year ahead.

To all the folks in our wonderful, indeed sometimes 'wacky' community, a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Io Saturnalia, Wiccid Midwinter, or whatever festive phrase is most applicable!

*I was going to type 'happy ending' but I know what you lot are like...

Here's the irony, I didn't eat even one bit!

But I miss those days when we all used to roll tang yuan as kids...

Happy Holidays to everyone here!

I've been so busy with the "new" job so I wasn't able to lurk around for more than 6 months now.

May new year bring you all with great opportunities - not just for work/careers but opportunities to make good memories with your loved ones.

Oh, no junior yet. I put double quotations on new since I started working in a start-up company (which just had it's IPO before Q4) last May. So it's not really a new as in brand new.

Thanks for the greetings. I am on a staycation and catching up on some correspondence and personal reading.

Happy New Year to you Lynx! :)
