Thank you Jenny from ItsmeeeJennyy for tagging me! I love tags and usually always do them if I'm nominated. This one is super cute and fun!
Do you open your gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Christmas Day! I have never opened them Christmas Eve... Christmas day would be so boring without the extended family gathering and opening of presents. Besides, these days I would probably struggle staying up until midnight haha.
Favorite Christmas song?
Not too much a fan of Christmas songs, but I like Oh Holy Night and the Drummer boy song. I always cuddle my pomeranian and sing 'pom pom pom' to that tune. Not a crazy pomeranian lady at all....
Favorite Holiday movie?
None, I think they are all cheesy. Coming from the girl who loves musicals!
Favorite Christmas decoration?
Gingerbread houses! The next time I am home for Xmas, I will make one! Mmmm I love gingerbread.
Favorite Christmas food?
In Australia it's usually super hot every Xmas- I'm talking around 40 degrees! So we have iced seafood. I love crayfish and shrimp! I'm not a huge fan of hams.
Favorite holiday/winter drink?
Our holidays are in Summer time, so that would be homemade iced green tea sweetened with agave. My favourite winter drink is hands down earl grey tea with soy milk! If I'm out at a cafe I will always get a chai latte with soy though.
Snow or no snow?
I have only seen snow once and that was in Hakuba, Japan. It was very pretty but uncomfortable. Or maybe that's because I was falling over every 3 seconds during my snowboarding attempts. So no snow. Ironically I will be skiing in Korea over Xmas this year!
Do you send out cards or no cards?
I really should! But I'm never organised enough.
Do you secretly still believe in Santa Claus?
No. Believing in the generosity and love of your friends and family is much better!
Your favourite winter clothing item?
BEANIES! I got this one from H&M.
One beauty product you cannot be without this winter?
My Pevonia dry skin cream. It worked wonders for my dry skin this year. A must try for those girls whose dry flakes will not dissipate!
Best Christmas memory?
Spending Xmas in Singapore when I was a child with my Dad's side of the family who I only get to see every two years. Although some of us don't speak the same language, that feeling of familial love is there and I feel safe. All the extended family comes over and we would open presents after lunch and all the children would play together! I had a bad childhood and I remember feeling true joy when I spent Xmas in Singapore. I have never looked forward to Xmas as much since those days.
