3 weeks to go… and the decoration for the coming Chinese New Year are all up. Chinese New Years songs can be heard playing in malls. People rushing to buy new year clothes, food and hampers. The feeling of another holiday is closing in. =)

Well… Chinese New Year is one of the big celebration here (and in Asia) and … it will be interesting the things that will happen as the festival approaches.

Xmas Shopping – the final rush…

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.

It does bring the Xmas mood and festive to all.
