Part II of 2008 Christmas – With Ling Family

C r A z Y…when the Ling Family get together, especially the 6 of us.

The family is always complete on Christmas unlike 1st day of CNY, some of us have to be with the in-laws. The tradition has always be that we have makan-makan on the eve of Christmas with some self-organised performance and caroling then followed by presents time. On the morning of Christmas day, we will be at church to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ with other fellow Christians.

We take turn to host each year’s Christmas. This time is 2nd sis turn and that is the reason why we were in Penang last Christmas.  Here are the photos……


Each year we did our own caroling but this year, 2nd sis invited 5 young and sweet carolers.




The kids put up some dances. Ideas and creation all came from my talented 11 years old eldest niece. We were so impressed with them. Even the youngest grandchild were part of the performance as “Baby Jesus” in a “manger”.


Who is the Santa this year? The host of course…my 2nd BIL. This is a naughty Santa cause he tried to throw the kids into the pool. Jonathan boy is afraid of him too. 😛


The eve of Christmas is bring to close with a prayer from my Dad. Dad always prayed very meaningful prayers and he never forgets to bless his children, son-in-laws and grandchildren.


So, this is the Ling family. The family pic gets outdated every year with new addition in the family.  3rd sis will be expecting a baby in June.


And Dad is waiting for his youngest daughter to find a soulmate and get married! Ahem…



Last but not least…Presents time. The kids can’t wait to find out what’s inside all the pretty wrapped boxes and so were their mommies. 😛


We forgot to take the pics of the food (except the sushi) but never forget to mention the yummy food we had.  Laksa, sushi, pandan chicken, sponge cake and soya jelly. Yummy, all homemade.  Eldest sis very pro in making sushi with lots of fish caviar and mayo.

    Anggie – When we are together, we’re a big bully. Haha…

    Merryn – Thanks. Do you know any of them?

    Yugene – Not really. Maybe in this pic only. We have our own look except my two twin sisters.

    Aunty Next Door – Silly creates fun. 😛

    Ann – Fun and NOISY too.

    Channel – We had a great fun. Btw, nice to see you here again.

    LittleLamb – Yes. Praying for a baby girl though.

    June – Yeah and I still think I spent too little time there. Too occupied and so couldn’t catch up with you.

    HN – Big boy right? No longer a baby. Getting more mischievious.

    MC – You’re right. The kids almost ate from the wrong sushi plate.
