Christmas Tree at Raffles City

Every year end, my part of the world would decorate the streets from Orchard Road to Bras Basah Road with fairy lights and christmas trees and other decorations.

Hubby and me were walking along Bras Basah Road with not many crowds and it was quite peaceful and romantic to see these fairy lights and the christmas tree twinkling away.

Ut Oh, I spotted one part of the tree not twinkling, the lights might have blown. This photo was taken on 17th November 2008. They should have been repaired by now.

Closer look at the tree and two short videos showing the tree twinkling.

Come visit me on Skywatch Friday, I will post more fairy lights decorated along the streets.

Please visit "That's my World" for other parts of the world.

Very pretty! I think the dark part sort of looks like it's supposed to be there. Looking forward to Friday.

Singapore was fantastic when I visited in April. It must look beautiful over Christmas. Does St Andrews Cathedral do anything special at Christmas. I would love to see pictures if they do.

Christmas in Singapore must be gorgeous. I never visited Singapore, but I lived in Hong Kong for five years and had many friends from there. I know how gorgeous the decorations were in Hong Kong, I can only imagine what they were like where you live. Your photos are beautiful.
