Our World - Christmas Blooms in Singapore

This is my 2nd visit to Orchard Road, my first time there was almost two decades ago. A lot of large shopping malls have sprung up across the street and offer a combination of local stores and international brand names.

It’s really funny that it has not crossed my mind that I would be here in time to see Christmas decorations going up around the city. During my visit in late November, the entire street was decked out in blue sparking lights and elaborate Christmas decorations.

The Christmas Light-Up theme varies every year and the theme for this year's decorations is Christmas Blooms in Singapore.

A dazzling array of lights hang above traffic greets motorists.

The stunning gold-themed decorations stand out brightly at Tangs.

People from all walks of life soaking up the Christmas spirit.

Each major shopping mall has their own set of spectacular decorations to stir up the festive mood and I kept clicking my camera like crazy.

One of my favourite spots is at ION Orchard. This is my first time I've seen a Christmas tree with an observation deck. It's really amazing that people would be able to see Orchard Road's light up from a different perspective.

Some inflatable snowglobes showing off a wintry wonderland within. Who doesn't love snowglobes?

These glowing flowers are brought to you by Hitachi, symbolizing the heart-warming spirit of the yuletide season.

I couldn't recall the exact location when I took this picture but the place was all decked out in Christmas glory to get everyone in a celebratory mood.

I hope you enjoy my pictures as much as I've enjoyed taking them.

'Tis the season to be jolly.

Our World


  1. I absolutely do like your photos, keep 'em coming :-).

  2. Wow! Those are the most awesome Christmas lights I've ever seen! Christmas glory indeed! Fantastic captures of your world for the season! Hope you had a great Christmas and wishing you a very Happy New Year!


  3. Beautiful decorations with light.

  4. Wow, those are really fabulous. We have a lot of them too here, but i just don't like going out at night here. So thanks for giving us the Christmas decors Singapore style, fantastic! I love that tree with a viewing deck, how so creative! Maybe you got fantastic items too!

  5. Wow, that's a lot of lights. Love the snowglobes.

  6. Orchard Road certainly has changed. I have stayed there in the 60's, 70's and 80's. In the early times there was great food at all the little stalls in one of the parking lots after 6p.m. - that changed after the super-expensive hotels went p with their shopping malls with international brand names.

    Times have changed and the old singapore of the 50's is long gone, even Raffles is now unrecognisable.

    Great photos, thanks.

  7. I have to say WOW! The christmas light display is gorgeous. I love the gold and the snowgloes are really cute. I am sure the children and adults are both in awe of these beautiful decorations. Happy New Years!
