I must say my christmas was filled wuth never ending good cheers and happiness! I travelled from Japan to Singapore to Malaysia and got to see so many beautiful christmas lights:) Christmas is a time for giving, sharing and being with family and friends, I am glad I got to be with mine this time around.
It started off when I transit in Japan for a night, I decided to go to Tokyo to shop and meet my friend Minoru. Honestly, I was afraid to take the train down by myself to Tokyo from Narita even with directions as I only knew basic Japanese, I really thank my lucky stars when I bumped into a friend Yoshie Teh from college who was holidaying there on the bus to Nikko Hotel(seriously, what a coincidence??) and we went down together! Yay!!!
Arriving at Harajuku, so kawaii!!
Christmas lights out in the town
Minoru took us to this quaint Japanese restaurant right in the middle of Harajuku district
In front of one of the biggest Forever 21 I have ever seen!
They even had christmas lights in the hotel!
Off to Singapore I went after I landed in Malaysia. I got to spend time with my grandfather and parents and I love love love the Christmas lights in Singapore! So vibrant and surreal:)
One of the biggest christmas trees in Takashimaya
Mom & Dad( my father liked this tree!!)
With my father and grandpa
In Dempsey hill, look at the backdrop...
When I was back in Malaysia, I went out for a traditional christmas dinner with friends in a restaurant at Ampang called Suisse Chalet, very beautifully decorated......food was pretty good too....but company was the cherry on top of the pie!
All of us really loved the backdrop of the restaurant, I think everyone of us used up every square inch of the place to take pictures and it wans't that big!
We then adjourn to Bar 21, it was a dissapointment though as the crowd was rather rowdy and I wasn't use to the smokey atmosphere!!!!! The well publicized scenery was nice but the atmosphere and music somehow did not fit the music and surroundings...but maybe it was just that night because it was too packed????
Christmas eve went really well especially with good friends around to joke and laugh with:)
On christmas day itself, after opening of presents, my brother and Marry Ann brought us to this new Spanish restaurant called El Mason! The decorations were really simple and christmasey and service was good!
One of the dishes! Very tasty! Spanish food is an acquired taste but most of the dishes we tried on the menu was delicious:) I knew my mom was happy with it!
