Year End Party Time - PhotoHunt

shimmer and sparkle light effect - Orchard Road Christmas Light up

PhotoHunt theme : Party Time/Shimmer

We had several foreign visitors arriving in Singapore for a brief getaway during Christmas season. Usually after a sumptuous dinner, we would drive them through the brightly decorated street to experience a tropical Christmas.

I also helped to organise an outing to see the Christmas Light-up for 30 children from low-income families. They were fascinated by the amazing "snow" display at one mall. :D

Love the Christmas Light-up along Orchard Road this year. The tourist belt was transformed into a winter wonderland. We took many memorable pictures of the spectacular decorations.

It's party time for a group of travel buddies who last spent a fabulous holiday in Myanmar. We held an outdoor barbecue on Sentosa Island. This time many friends brought their young children along.

My contributions to the Potluck party : Potato salad, pasta salad and fresh vegetables salad. :)

It's the time of the year where our waistlines would expand due to the many year end parties. LOL

I am busy making preparations for the coming New Year and Chinese New Year celebrations.
