CANDIES FOR CHRISTMAS 2008

もうすぐ クリスマスです! 一年の内で 大好きな時期は クリスマスです!

Christmas is approaching again ….. it is my favourite time of the year!

DS and I were at Kinokuniya and Takashimaya for some shopping yesterday. By now, many shopping malls in Singapore (not just at Orchard Road) have already been beautifully decorated to welcome this festivity. Oh, I really love the shopping atmosphere at this time of the year. 😀

As we took a short stroll down Orchard Road, we were not impressed at all with this year’s Christmas light-up with is themed “A Sweet Christmas”. In fact, I find the lighting were a little dim and dull. I wonder if the organiser is trying to be more environmental-friendly by not consuming too much electricity, or has this anything to do with cost-saving measures as a result of the current gloomy economic climate.

DS and I have just come back from a 5-day holiday in Malaysia a few days. In fact, we are a lot more impressed with the bright and beautiful Christmas light-up along the street in front of Sunway Resort where we stayed. This was the first time we have ever seen a Christmas light-up in Malaysia! I know this is a compliment very pleasing to the ears of my good old friends there! 😀

Oh, I can’t wait to start my Christmas shopping! This has to be two weeks later, after I finish my exam. I am sure my nieces and nephews are excitingly looking forward to their gifts!

Festive shoppings and celebrations aside, Christmas holds a special message of love, joy and peace. It reminds us of GOD’S LOVE for all mankind.
