It's the most wonderful time of the year - or so they say. Really, who doesn't enjoy waking up on Christmas morning and ripping open their presents. Some years are great, others you get socks and underwear. In the joyful spirit of the season, we checked around and asked some prominent local personalities to think back and tell us what was their all-time favourite seasonal gift. Cecilia Yip Tung actress Louis Tan entrepreneur 'The best Christmas present we ever got were two air tickets to the Maldives. Being a Muslim country, one would have thought the place was dry, but it was not. And guess what? The flow of champagne was non-stop and we were going crazy at the end of each night. We only got sobered up with a dip in the surrounding blue lagoon. Furthermore, we treasured our anonymity because nobody knew us and nobody cared what we were wearing or what we were not wearing.' Marcus Savage Co-director of Rock Candy and Shya-la-la 'It's a scarf. It's precious because it was hand-knitted by my late mother, who gave it to me during a holiday in Egypt last Christmas, while she was fighting cancer. She passed away later and it's a memento that reminds me of her, always.' Kam Kwok-leung Media personality 'In 1979, my then girlfriend and I went to a coffee bar in Lan Kwai Fong called Nut. There, I loved the design of their glasses but they were not willing to sell it or let me take one home. At the end of the year, I received one from her, but I never asked how she got it. That was ruthlessly appealing to me!' Finally, for our 'bah humbug' award ... David Tang Wing-cheung Raconteur, businessman 'Sorry, but I have never received anything exciting at Christmas as I go out of my way to tell family and friends that I hate the commercial aspect of the sacred day! I really feel nauseous with all the commercialese.' Well, it seems somebody's chestnuts were a little too roasted. A fa la la la la to you too. Anyway, we say don your gay apparel because tis' the season to be jolly. On behalf of all of us at CitySeen, may your halls be decked with boughs of holly and happy trolling the ancient Yuletide carol - we're not even sure what that means but, yes, it does sound dirty.
