Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Singapore!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Singapore to all of you who come to visit my blog.

If you don't celebrate Christmas and the 1 January New Year then I hope you will have a good break at this festive time where you might get time off work.

The pictures of this Christmas posting come from Orchard Road, the Oxford Street of Singapore. I hope you enjoy the Christmas lights on a tropical island with no snow!

This first picture is a new shopping centre called the ION.
It is a temple to the most famous western brands

Cartier and Armani being two
fine examples

A piece of Christmas cake for
those who know the name of
this instrument :)

Shoppers abound. It is one of
the national pastimes of
Singaporeans, which stimulates
the economy

This group of carol singers made up for their
lack of tonality with their smiles and

A Christian department store called Tangs has
a message, and particularly beautiful decorations

The lights on Orchard Road

Wisma Atria shopping mall which has
"Food Republic". A paradise of local

air-conditioned and hygienic environment

Admire the the lights and the car!

Another shopping mall called
Ngee Ann City always has a
HUGE Christmas tree

presents at Gucci....

Finally I hope that you will have a Christmas
and a 2011 which is simply 'Two Good To Be True"

Come back in 2011 to see photos of Cambodia.

I believe the instrument is simply a horn.
In polish we would call it French horn.
