This is my follow up of my post on Malaysia – Christmas is Just Round the Corner (1) . By now, all the shopping malls and shops are in full force and ready for the Xmas shoppers with Xmas song blasting in the background. People busy window shopping and looking for gifts or items on offers.
This is the final decoration up in one of the biggest shopping mall in South East Asia. Sights of giant ‘hot air balloons’ in the center of the concourse.
Very colourful sight indeed….
They even have wooden rocking horses all around for the kids to sit and ride while their parents take photos.
From the 2nd floor looking down. People walking on the ‘map’ of the ‘ancient world’
Lots of colourful stuff toys for sale……
and.. more. Guess kids (and adults too) love all these.
Xmas wishing from the big fellas…….
lastly…. to top it of…. a Christmas tree.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2014 Year ahead!!!
Christmas is just less than a month away and Malaysians are not missing out on this especially the shopping malls and stalls. Decorations are slowing popping up in pieces while others are in full bloom and ready for the celebration.
The following are photos from a shopping where they are getting ready from Christmas. Not sure what they making but in a few days time we will know
Top view from 2nd floor….. Mmmm looks like a map

So.. If you want to find see the complete decorations, then stick with me here and you will find out. 😊
Last day in Yamagata. Back to Tokyo then to Narita Airport for the night before catching my flight back home.
A shot from the bullet train going at about 250km/hr or was it 300km/hr. Everything seen to zooming by. Can’t believe the ride was so smooth and quiet inside the Shinkansen.
Final stop was at Tokyo station where I only had an hour to spare before I taking my connecting ride to Narita airport. So where can I go within Tokyo and be back at the Tokyo station in an hour’s time?
By foot.. it would be Ginza district. Yup the most uptown district. Streets were full of neon lights and the crowd everywhere especially at the traffic light junction. Guess it was after working hours and people were rushing back or heading for dinner. Human jam!
Colourful neon lights.
Lots of cars and people.
Yup… Xmas trees everywhere. Christmas was just round the corner.
I could not see much of Tokyo but at least got a feel of it. Well what can you expect from an hour (or less) by foot. =). Then it was back to the Tokyo station and on my way to Narita Airport to stay at the transit hotel.
My last shot in the next morning of Japan before heading back home.
So where is my next place? Wanna know? Then.. stick with me and you will find out. =)
Just after Christmas and New Year celebration around the world, another celebration is coming along at it is the Chinese New Year. Only a month plus away and signs of preparation can be slowly seen all around.
Even M&M is also celebrating the coming Chinese New Year
lanterns are all up…
damn… This is a huge hamper!!
Hampers as gifts. People will buy and give to friends and relatives before the Chinese New Year.
Xmas is just round the corner… to be exact; a week away. People are busy doing last minute shopping. Over here, it is also near the end of the school holidays and parents bringing their children out shopping or to visit places. One of the places would be the mall where you can see also the beautiful decoration for Xmas festive. Shops decorated and the staffs in Xmas costumes serving the customers.
