hello my sweet soupers ...i can't believe I was not around for many days!

i'm in hongkong ( since the 22nd), and surprisingly spent Christmas here with family and friends ...  though i brought my laptop, there was no time to open it and send you all my loving cheers

so here I am, stealing an hour to greet you all a fine holiday

i'll get back to you soon!

Nette, I'm just coming down from my vacation. Like you, I took my laptop, and guess what it was not useful. I had poor internet. Well, the good thing was I had my phone. I'm now learning in doing much from my phone.... Late Christmas Hugs... Again... :).... Can't wait to celebrate the new year with all my soup poets... Charms.. Linda
