I just got home from Singapore, where I stumbled upon their magnificent Xmas displays.
A Singapore icon, no doubt. Changi International Airport Control Tower.
Dusk falls … and I wander the terminals while waiting for the missus, and I find some treasures …
Terminal 1. Mickey the fearsome pirate.
And the ship’s crew have fled, in fear I suppose.
Terminal 2. Minnie and Mickey celebrate Xmas at their house.
Never knew they lived in Holland.
Terminal 3. The fabulous foursome arrive at Changi.
My all-time favourite has always been Goofy. That’s our little secret.
Earlier in the day, I had to attend a function at the InterContinental, and as I exited Bugis MRT station to make my way to the hotel, I found myself a Malay street, literally.
The entrance sort of pulls me in …
… and I am not disappointed.
Gorgeous old architecture being tastefully preserved and presented.
There’s Malabar Street here, which reminds me of the famous Kerala spicy coconut-y fish dishes!
Row of closed stalls in the middle of the old street, too early to start hawking goods.
And of course, the posh InterContinental …
… which faces Hylam Street.
Finally at the other end, entrance to Malay Street bedecked with Xmas decorations, but Santa’s missing!
