5 ways to survive a lonely Christmas & New Year's Eve

All 'ye lonely hearts this Christmas (and New Year).. I am with you..

For the first time ever (like EVER!!), I have no dinner parties to go, no gift exchanges parties (apart from the office one which is.. umm.. I-shall-not-comment), no gatherings, no holidays, no trips (I've exhausted my leaves and money for travelling)..

And while many will be out singing "Auld Lang Syne", partying and countdown the new year, I will not be a part of any this year..

So I've decided to write my own 5 ways to survive a lonely Christmas..

1. Sleep in
Sleep is a good activity to restore the body and allow it to recover.. Studies have shown and proven we need at least 8 hours of sleep a day, which unfortunately I have not been able to do so, my sleep ranges from 2-6 hours daily and I will then accumulate sleep debt and repay during the weekends and public holidays..

2. Working it out in the gym
With everyone either having a hangover, or out at some lunch/dinner gathering, it's the best time to hit the gym.. Many a time when I want to use a machine or some equipment only to find that I have to queue/wait for it.. I am not one who likes to stand around people while they work out, nor do I like to be stared at while I do my sets.. It's like "hurry up and get the fuck off"..

There's also times when I am not keen on sharing especially if the guy is all sweaty and smelly and of particular ethnic (admit it, we are all racist to a certain degree), and only because usually they are the reasons why I avoid working out during the gym peak hours..

Empty floors are to be expected and you can have all the machines to yourselves and without the iron-orgasm guy who moans as he pumps.. I despise show-offs to the edge of the universe and back..

3. Order pizza and watch some movies at home
Holiday seasons and its reason to fatten up a little.. Spend some loving time by yourselves, and if you wish to be naked or wank to some porn, by all means, if that makes you happy.. Heh, I'll probably even do some cam if I want to lol....

I've downloaded some seasons of dramas and I am currently watching "Hot in Cleveland" from the beginning.. Comedy makes one young.. and I absolutely love bitchy comedies, and if the lines are good and can be applied, I picked it up and use it.. I've finished watching "2 Broke Girls" up to the current episode..

4. Take a drive to somewhere 
And that does not include the shopping malls.. What I mean is to go somewhere where you can be in the solitude of your ownself.. Reflect on the year, and think about what you want to achieve in the coming year.. Spend sometime with yourself, by yourself, for yourself..

5. Turn off the phone
No amount of whatsapps messages can beat actual human interactions even though one may argue "the thought counts".. No.. Not in this case.. it doesn't take a minute to send a whatsapp, in fact, I send more messages when I am pooping than any other times.. and majority will just copy and paste some fancy greetings just so to appear "oh I wished through whatsapp"..

Come on..

Let me know your thoughts..

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup!
and surely I’ll buy mine!
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.


We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.


We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine†;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.


And there’s a hand my trusty friend!
And give me a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.


Have a Merry Christmas.. and a Happy New Year..
Let's hope it's not crappy..


  1. blessed Christmas to you, Eric =)

    p/s perhaps you need someone special in your life, you might say you want to be independent, but your heart would definitely yearn to be with a special "other half", just a thought, my prayers for you, hope you will find your true love soon, take care and bless it be...

    1. you may be right... maybe i said i don't need someone in my life, but then again, i may yearn for some kind of companion...
