When I heard Taylor Swift's version of Last Christmas on the radio, I knew I am officially old(where is George Michael?). Last Christmas we were feasting in the exquisitely beautiful Kyoto and less than ten blog posts after, we reached the end of 2014 already, sigh! I summarized the year's learnings in my usual off beat greeting card:
猶記去年聖誕夜於初雪京都喫鰻魚飯, 怎麼愰眼2014已至歲末?!今年旅行幾個新景點, 舊地重遊也諸多驚喜, 天方夜譚似的奇遇待日後慢慢書寫. 生活工作和家庭三面夾攻下雖時時捉襟見肘, 然見招拆招頗有領悟, 節錄於這張LK風的另類賀年卡獻上深深祝福!
The month of December was all about gifting. The family tradition inaugurated with my favorite marron glacé, dark truffle, and pate de fruit from La Maison du Chocolat(sorry to hear the passing of its founder, Mr. Linxe...)
十二月忙於送禮收禮回禮, LK家過節傳統由數盒La Maison du Chocolat經典松露巧克力, 蜜釀栗子, 水果軟糖百匯揭開序幕.
The marron glacé was especially extravagant with the rose gold wrapper… after all I have been nice, right?
Presents to my fearless leader and my hardworking team - my favorites too, watercolor sketch journals of Philippe Dumas.
After living in the tropics with sundress and sandals for three years, my first winter home was dreadful… couldn't bear to bundle up and walk around like a yeti. Two winters after I slowly eased back into classic cashmere, suede, faux fur, and leather boots, falling in love with the cold weather all over again :)
Volunteered to run a booth at the company's artisan sale for St. Jude discovering so many hidden talents among us.
My dear friend and colleague, beautiful A hosted a costume jewelry drive for Project Glimmer, what a great cause to champion!
通過同事亞曼達得悉本地幫助青少女的慈善機構Project Glimmer, 人美心善的她擔任義工經年. 物資過盛的我們, 抽屜中有多少積塵許久的過氣舊愛呢? 是時候付予新生… To give a meaningful gift方是佳節送禮最美心意.
My dear friends, to a brighter and merrier 2015!
ps. 是帶幾分傻氣的忽忽, 不是'如果再見不能紅著眼, 是否還能紅著臉'的匆匆那年喲 :)
