Christmas in Shanghai

Merry belated Christmas everyone!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. This actually was the 2nd time I didn't celebrate Christmas at home. But for Christmas day I went to see my grandparents and spend the day with them. Although they are Chinese they don't really celebrate Christmas. But it was nice to have a home cooked meal. And to actually have 3 meals a day instead of my usual 1 or 2 meals a day. I know it is not healthy but that is sometimes all I seem to have time for.

But it was nice to spend some time with family. Although I miss my family back home, I wish I could spend my holidays with them but unfortunately that is not possible. Also most of my friends have all left me so they could go home or go on their trips. In this big city of 20 million people it does get lonely sometimes.

But 1 of my room mates did get me this stocking filled with all kinds of goodies for Christmas.

I also had a lot of fun doing the Christmas shopping, there was quite a few sales already going on so I had fun doing some personal shopping as well. I think I spend way too much money on my shopping. So I will have to put myself on a budget again after all this shopping.

Anyways, hope all of you have happy holidays!
