    First of all, happy Mardi Gras! Second of all, it’s also the last day of February this year. February is the shortest month, with only 28 days even though other months have 31 days.

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Finally its Christmas! However, 2011 Christmas isn't that nice as it was a year ago. This year, not a single spot of snow outside, only raining. Last year we were sinking into snow, and I liked it.

Let's hope the Santa comes with a lot of presents... continue reading
