Christmas 2008 in Orchard Road-Performances (Part 1)

My part of the world is celebrating christmas at Orchard Road. Besides Singaporean, we too have other communities from Indonesia, Korea, Japan and Philippines celebrating together too. I only managed to snap photos of the korea, Japan and Philippines cause it was on the Orchard Walkway. For the Indonesia group, they were infront of Tangs (too crowded) but you could see the photo of the Indonesia community from keropok's blog.

Choir from the local church

Korean Community - I was late for the performance, it's over..:(

Japaneses Community - Peformance over too

Philippines Community
Watch this short video of the dancers - very lovely. Wish I could record a longer video but my camera's battery is running out and I still have a lot other photos to take of christmas celebration at Orchard Road...lol
