WHOOOAAAA! Today November 18, 2007 I saw a real snow. It started around 7pm. I went to my favorite chinese takeaway to get my dinner and it was raining. As I was walking back to my B & B I noticed something. Its not all rain. SNOW! At first I got scared because it was really cold already and having snow would just make things a lot worst for me but my excitement has overtaken the coldness.

Last October 31, Carl and his family invited me to celebrate "APPLE BOBBIN" in their house. So whats "APPLE BOBBIN"? Let me give you a headstart "In this game, water is filled in a tub or basin and apples are put in the water. Apples are less dense than water and it is owing to this fact that apples keep floating at the surface of water. The game consists of grabbing the floating apples with teeth, without using hands. And it is believed that the first person that succeeds in catching the apple would be the next one to marry. How far this game is helpful in deciding the future is unknown, but definitely it provides a platform to the people, to come together and celebrate the festivity of Halloween.".

We left the office at around 5pm and reached Carl's house at around 510pm. Their house was all dressed up. We were greeted by Sam and Harry all dressed-up for the occasion.

At first, I didnt know that it was such a big event for Helen but after seeing all her preparations I wanted to applaud Helen for such a great night. She invited both their parents John and Elain and Chistine and Allan. She prepared Corned Beef Stew for Dinner.
