Christmas. I have always enjoyed Christmas as it meant we are close to the end of the year. Time for me to unwind and time to enjoy all festive goodies like turkeys, roast beef, buffets, oysters……. And of course, not too much work as all my customers from the Northern Hemisphere would be on Holidays.
Orchard Road has been lighted up pretty nicely this year. in fact, I think this lighting up thingy started more than 25 years ago and all the malls will compete to see who has the biggest, best and nicest christmas decorations of the season.
Some spanish friends could not believe when i told them that all these decorations started more than a month before Christmas. “It’s to get people in the mood so that they will spend more” I told the bewildered faces…. 🙂
Everyone wants to ring the bell inside this huge fake christmas tree……..
Part of the road is closed for the Christmas Celebrations. Its not everyday that you get the walk on one of the busiest roads in Singapore. I never knew how much dust and dirt was on the road, till i went home and had slipper marks all over my feet.
I reckon that all the camera shops must be having a good time with their sales. People are enjoying taking pictures of everything…..the christmas trees, the stairs, and even empty paper cups…….Every where i turn, i see a compact, a dslr, some flashes and even a Hasselblad !!!
Am trying to get into the mood…..feels lazy……
Looking forward to the New Year…… Merry Xmas Everyone !!!!
