Ready for Christmas!

I just left Heidelberg today for Christmas so this is going to be a short post as I’m exhausted from all the traveling.

In Hong Kong I rarely decorated my room because I had to share with two other roommates, but in Heidelberg I’ve been changing the decors constantly (yes constantly).

They started selling Christmas stuff quite early in Germany, and I was already tempted to put up some Christmas decorations in November – just when I was about to stick the fake snow up on my window, my flatmate reminded me it wasn’t even December!

But it’s mid-December now, so Maggie and I have both done some decorating at home.

Yup, I made this tree. It's not the prettiest but I'm proud of it.

Woolworth (the cheapest store that has basically everything here in Heidelberg) is closing :( They were having a big sale and I got the polar bear figure for 1 euro, then I just gave him a face and something to wear, and now he's a not-so-happy Christmas bear.

Maggie has actually put more effort in decorating the apartment. She got these candles for our kitchen table and some other Christmas stuff around the place.

Just as I finished decorating my room, I was leaving already; but at least I’ll be back on Jan 5 (people here usually leave the Christmas things around till Jan 6).
