Christmas is exactly 1 week away and there are a lot of advertisements in the newspapers of combined churches performances and carollings in the various places. The Penang Chief Minister has been invited to attend as well and to open some of these functions. I have been looking forward to one particular event, but alas, I cannot attend anymore as I have to go to KL for work during that time. But the good news is that I will be home during Christmas and plan to watch the many interesting channels on Direct TV. There will be many Christmas themed programs on December 25 and I plan to just turn on the DirectTV and simply enjoy the wide repertoire of channels during this festive season.
This is even better than going to the movies where you have to queue up to buy your tickets, and wait for the show to start after parking your car somewhere. But with Directv, all you need is a tv screen and a cosy place to start enjoying the shows and various channels. What better place than right in the comforts of your own home, no matter how untidy and cluttered it is.
I might also attend church service for Christmas eve if I am up for it – otherwise I will just stay at home to watch tv. And it has been like this for the last 10 years since I came back from Singapore in 2000. I still miss the Orchard Road decorations, but home life is better – no more stress of staying alone with a wierd neighbour who cannot leave you alone or being out of a job several times. Those are history now and I am going to turn on the tv soon.
