SNEAK PREVIEW OF ORCHARD ROAD’S CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS

November has quietly sneaked in, and soon, Christmas bells will be ringing again. Just how time flies….

Walking on Orchard Road now, one will not miss seeing the decorations that are being put up for the upcoming annual Christmas Light-up event, which will run from 7 November this year through to 3 January 2010. So it is just less than a week away.

A Christmas All Decked Out” is the theme for this year’s Christmas light-up on Orchard Road. Many Santa Claus, snowmen and Reindeers are used for the decorations.

Here’s a sneak preview of some of the decorations. Except for the very last photo, all photos on this entry were taken using the camera on my iPhone. The quality is not bad right? 🙂

I wonder if there will be any surprises in the decorations and light-up this year? I shall share more photos after I have a stroll down Orchard Road one of these nights.

I always like Singapore the best during year-end when the weather is slightly cool (though wet as well) and the spirit of love and joy is felt everywhere especially in the shopping malls and along Orchard Road. After all, this is what Christmas is all about – GOD’S LOVE, JOY AND PEACE TO ALL MANKIND.

However, unlike previous years, DS and I are planning to spend Christmas on a cold winter land outside Singapore this December. Hopefully it will be a white Christmas for us! We are eagerly looking forward to seeing this pink “Princess Christmas” decoration in a tiara motif in our holiday destination. It has been 13 years since we last spent Christmas in overseas. That was a summer Christmas down under in New Zealand.

Can you guess where this is going to be?Christmas Illumination

Since we will be away, we will not be putting up our 5-foot tall Christmas tree at home this year. DS is mot happy about it as it is quite a chore to put it up, and then bring it down when the festive is over.

We are counting down to December …….
