Just a few days more to Christmas!
Without doubt, this is one of my favourite holiday in the calendar year.
I remembered about 5 years ago, I was drinking coffee on a rather cold night with Vivian at a cafe at Huaihai road. It was just a few weeks before Christmas and the decorations for the season has all gone up at all the shopping malls. A boy walked up to me with a cup asking for money. Perhaps due to the Christmas season, his facial expression then, one of innocence, maturity with a tinge of desparation actually touched me. I think he, depsite his tender years, was trying to gather money for some purpose. Since then, almost every Christmas, I wondered how that little boy is doing now.
I am sure all of you have your own fair share of Christmas stories too. If you have one, do share with other readers as well via the comments section.
As there is no sight of snow in Shanghai yet, I share with you some photos of snow but from Beijing, with compliments from my friend Angeline.
