Christmas is in the air - Snow in Singapore!

There’s only 3 weeks to Christmas and the festive mood is already in the air. It is that time of the year, (well one of the times in a year here in Singapore), that shopping malls contend for the title for the most creative and exuberant façade décor, filling their interiors with the season's themed events, shopping promotions (discounts galore!) and more - all for that memorable Christmas!

With Christmas songs playing in the shopping malls and even the supermarkets, it’s not hard to get into the festive mood; what more with the Christmas trees and pretty lights. One event that caught my attention is the ‘snow’ at Tanglin Mall. We finally have snow in Singapore! Ok, so not the ice-cold real kind of snow, but foam is just as good in tropical Singapore, right?

Snow aside, the pretty Christmas decorations along Orchard Road - pretty lights, trees (of every kind imaginable), and even snow (ok not real snow but still) - make a festive sight. Even the shopping centers and the hotspots where people congregate throughout Singapore are not spared.

Besides the spectacular mall displays and sparkling lights, there are fun street performances and endless shopping promotions (Christmas and Year-end sales) along (but not limited to) Orchard Road. If shopping is not really your thing, you can also join parties such as the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown and the Siloso Beach Party to round-up the month-long festival. So if you happen to be in Singapore from 17 November to 06 Jan 2013, you can enjoy the festive mood and celebrations as well; there are even tourist privileges.

  1. interesting that the snow is like dish foam!

    1. It is foam! Using real ice for 'snow' wouldn't be practical in sunny Singapore, unless it is indoors I guess. ^^ Well, if it did really snow naturally in Singapore that would be a tad worrying. :p
