Have A Blessed Christmas

Christmas is a perfect time
To stop and reminisce
About the many hours we've spent
Discussing that and this-
The laughs, the smiles
That we have known
The wonderful things we've done
That make the friendship that we share
A very special one!

Have a very special Christmas, my blogger friends!!

Christmas Trees

We no longer see just the traditional trees. Everyone is trying to be innovative and decorate theirs differently. here are a few that I saw:

A floating Christmas tree? It is made of lights, and is on Bayview Terrace in Claremont, Western Australia.

Made of red, green and purple balloons - Leisure Park, Kallang, Singapore.

Christmas Tress with butterflies flying around it. Sentosa Golf Club Singapore.

And one made only of teddy bears!! (Takashimaya Department Store, Singapore)

And finally, the good old traditional tree!! (Tanah Merah Club, Singapore)

Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall. ~Larry Wilde, The Merry Book of Christmas

Short Stopover

Just got back from a short trip to Perth, 9 days actually.

Wonderful weather, relaxing time. Caught up with some former school mates. Good bonding time with the children. Not much rush or hassle as we are familiar with the place.

Now home for a "short stop-over". Well it seems like it to me.

Yes, we have decided to take a trip to Paris as well since my son is going to be there. But there seems to be so many things to do during the short-stop back home. Laundry, shopping, vaccinations, packing, eating the local food, etc. Sometimes I wonder how the flight crew do it - a few days here, a few days there, and then they are off again. As for me, I find it most tiring. Maybe thats why I never considered being an air-stewardess.

Well, au revoir, until I get back from France.
