Getting Our Festive On!

With 1 December looming, it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas... 

Well actually no. 

Here in Hong Kong it's really not feeling anything even remotely like Christmas. It's still warm and sunny, the skies are blue and snuggling up in cashmere is only possible if you whack the aircon up to max. The shops may have started playing tinny versions of carols on repeat, the Christmas decorations may have gone up but I for one am not feeling even the teeniest bit festive.

So, I've decided it's time to take action. Project Get Christmassy is well and truly under way. Yesterday saw a jaunt up to the Flower Market in Prince Edward where I bagged a wreath then it was back to Central to grab a Christmas tree and armfuls of red berries and eucalyptus. Back at Mouse Towers HK, I dug out the fairy lights and decorations and got to work.





Although that all definitely helped, one thing was still missing, Christmas Credit Card flexing... After all, it's really not Christmas unless you've indulged in a massive bout of Christmas shopping is it?! 

Well, luckily our American cousins have given us all an early Christmas gift by sharing the frankly genius post-Thanksgiving sales with us. If you didn't already get yourself a piece of the Black Friday action at the end of last week, panic not, there's still time to bag yourself a few Christmassy bargains today in the Cyber Monday sales.
