O Christmas Tree

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!
For every year the Christmas tree,
Brings to us all both joy and glee.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!

Dexter came up to me yesterday, "Go buy a Christmas tree, put it in our department. Budget around RM 200". What, he thinks I'm his secretary ah? Every single thing in R&D also I have to organize. *grunt*

But hey, it's Christmas. I love decorating Christmas trees! I'd do anything to liven up the atmosphere. Buy Christmas tree, then buy Christmas tree lor... *skips around*

So, during lunch just now, off I went to Amcorp Mall with Labu. Cute Living is having a Christmas promotion at the concourse. Soooooo many trees! Soooooo many decorations! We juggled around with the budget. We took several sets of coloured ornaments - red, white, silver, gold. We took golden bells that go ting-a-ling-a-ling. We took silverish gold and blueish white garlands. We took 2 sets of multi-coloured blinking lights (It has 8 sets of blinking. So coool!). We took a few sets of gift boxes. We took a glittering gold star for the top of the tree. We separately bought a packet of cotton wool for the 'snow'.

Guess how much did we spend? RM 150!! And the tree was only RM 29.90 . Cheap eh?? Dexter will surely love us for not using the budget to the max. As soon as we got back to the office, we started decorating the tree with the help of 3 other colleagues. We thought it would be nice to put it at the space in front of Dexter's room and the Server room. The outcome....

R&D's Christmas Tree

Nice, ah? Nice, ah? We're having a 'gift exchange' event few days before Christmas. All the presents we buy will be placed under the tree. So fun! I shall go blast some Christmas mp3s on my PC now. *lol*
