At Shek O, I passed by a house with some nice decorations hanging in the front, including Santa who seemed to be having a jolly time parachuting. Christmas may be over, but who cares!

It’s not this time of year without some good ol’ festive Christmas markets! For the past 6 years, I’ve spent the Christmas season in Europe, where Christmas markets can be found in many cities and towns. Delicate gifts, good food, and warm mulled wine – perfect to counter the cold! Here’s one that I went to with my friend Ara four years ago in Copenhagen, Denmark. We decided to leave the mild winter and go somewhere REALLY COLD and indeed, it snowed as it should during the winter!
Cologne, Germany, taken on December 11, 2011
I love seeing a city from a high place and would gladly grab any chance to climb to the top of a hill or tower to do so, even if it means some serious legwork. The Dom in Cologne might have been the tallest man-made structure that I had climbed so far, and no doubt I was half dead by the time I got to the top. The views at the top are always rewarding, however. When I first visited Cologne, it was Christmas market season. The booths of the market taking place right at the Dom looked like miniatures, and the people visiting almost seemed like tiny ants navigating the market!

My lab colleagues are too adorable. Although Christmas was a week ago, I gotta post this photo of our home-made Christmas “tree”, which I found one weekend before Christmas while dropping by the lab. I’m not sure who came up with the ingenious idea of making such a thing, but kudos to the person/people who took time from their busy schedules to do this 😛

O Christmas tree in Prague, how lovely you looked next to the Tyn Church! Have yourself a very Merry Christmas 😉
