December is an aged nostalgic song, 
with ancient accents in delicate monotone,
Aglow and behold weary souls with happy tears,
And each note leads to cadence of mystical visions. 

Can you feel the beauty of heaven’s stars shine upon,
with millions of velvet dreams flowing within you? 
Such is the grace of a tender prayer,
capable of the most ardent passions.
Such is the mastery of the creator,
sprouting an ever-pulsing flame 
under a December’s silent name…


Poet’s Journal:

As Christmas is magically approaching, I’m finally having some leisure just staying home and studying the Christmas recipes🎄🤪. Since I wish not to tire myself out on Christmas night, I will only host the Christmas brunch at home and with a few friends/colleagues. And even that, I find it actually quite a habor and preparation (luckily, friends are willing to help around🥰).

Added to the pressure, is the Christmas tree arriving unbelievably late leaving me no time decorating it. Anyway, I have resorted to just enjoy whatever we can put together this year in this foreign city and happily busy around in my kitchen😅🎅🎄…

Jumping around in the kitchen but nowhere productive😅🤪


Be content with the reality 🤪🎄🧘‍♂️

Have a magical Christmas time and eat plenty of beautiful food, dear friends! 🎄🥂💗
