I’ve sorta been on a hiatus due to the crap service from Telekom Malaysia who refuses to connect us with a working land line and an internet signal. I recently watched an episode of South Park (season 12) where town has no internet and has to try to go to californee for internet. I can’t believe how dependant I am of it!
Anyways, every year i have the Christmas blues and this year I’m trying to change my habits and fly off to change up the scene! I’m going to HK! That’s right folks!! Good Ol’ Hong Kong to make my dreams of Mickey and Minnie come true again. Just kidding – I hope I can finally check out the scene and clubs at LKF as I’ll be bunking in with my buddy in Central.
Lots of revamping going on here with this xanga being shifted to my www.sarah-lian.com/blog soon enough. Just thought I’d remind u and leave the remaining last blogs of the yearon this.
On the UPDATE – I shot another mag cover for a young and new publication for January. I also shot the cover for Seven Collar T-shirt’s new Album. I can’t wait to see how it looks! I’m also gonna be rockin a LEVI’s party decked out in their clothing for January as well…so there are lots in store for January. Its going to be the month that moves the rest of the year!
Just a couple days until Christmas – let me share with you an email my pops shared! So I’ll leave u with that!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS -incl KWANZA AND CHANNUKAH!
“The Origin of “The Twelve Days of Christmas“
What in the world do leaping lords, French hens, swimming swans, and especially the partridge who won’t come out of the pear tree have to do with Christmas?
From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics.
It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church.
One true love refers to God
Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.
Three French hens stood for Faith, Hope and Charity, the theological Virtues.
The four calling birds were the Four Gospels and/or the Four Evangelists: Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.
The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, first Five Books of the Old Testament, the “Pentateuch“, which gives the history of man’s fall from grace.
The six geese a-laying stood for the the six days of creation.
Seven swans a-swimming represented the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, the seven sacraments: Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.
The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.
Nine ladies dancing were the nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness,
Gentleness, and SelfControl.
The ten lords a-leaping were the Ten Commandments.
The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful apostles.
The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of doctrine in the Apostle’s Creed.
