Warm wishes to all my visitors for the festive season


I went to Orchard Road and an area called City Hall to take a few photos for this Christmas edition.

The national hobby in Singapore is shopping. Orchard Road is the definitive shopping street.
and several new shopping malls have been opened recently, despite the recession!

City Hall has shopping Malls but also the famous Raffles Hotel.

Contrary to what some believe, there is a lot more to Singapore than just the shops, but it does excel.

So here are a few shots to wish you a wonderful time over the next two weeks, whatever you are doing.

I'll be back in the New Year and hope to see you then.


Inside Paragon, a shopping mall on Orchard

Ms Reindeer making herself pretty for
Christmas, or perhaps for.....

.......Mr. Reindeer who's wondering if he's got a
chance with Ms Reindeer

Outside Ion, a flash new shopping Mall
on Orchard Road, the "Urban People"

They say the devil wears Prada. Certainly he's
tempting the Christmas shoppers

Ion and a Christmas tree. Ion is a temple to all
the big fashion houses

A bit more traditional. Raffles Hotel decked

Outside Raffles, looking
towards the Central Business

Christmas tree in Ngee Ann City
on Orchard Road. It's big!

Reflections in the pool (with Christmas lights)
at Spanish Village where Daniela and I live.

It's cooler and wetter at Christmas in
Singapore. Sun and showers but still 28 - 32
Centigrade. No chance of a white Christmas

I finish as I started, inside a Christmas
tree decoration! I hope you find marvellous
gifts under your tree.
