Wednesday Wishes - Merry Christmas 2009!

I love Wordless Wednesdays. But this Wednesday, I can't zip my mouth anymore. Why? Because I am full of Warm Wishes for all of you, my friends. I want to,

Wish you all A Merry Christmas,
May the Joys of the season
Fill your heart with goodwill and cheer.
May the chimes of Christmas glory
Add up more shine and spread
Smiles across the miles,
To-day & In the New Year.
-Rosie Cash


Before I say bye-bye today, I have some pictures of Christmas in Malaysia for you to enjoy.....

The theme here is Royale Christmas @ Pavillion KL.

As I walked through the entrance to this mall, this is what greeted me. A magnicifient ballroom with red carpets from the entrance to the hall. Wouldn't Cinderella, Snow White and Belle be enchanted by all the splendour here? I can imagine how glamorous they will look, dressed in their beautiful gowns, led by their hansome Prince Charmings. As music and laughter filled the air, would they want to dance to a waltz?

The Pavillion KL is a "1.37 mil sq ft retail haven with 430 outlets offering the finest fashion and home furnishing to entertainment and culinary delights. It also houses flagship boutiques from the world over". Here, you won't run out of ideas for Christmas shopping. Standing up here on the upper floors and looking down at the vast space filled with people and shops make me dizzy!

While Santa was busy distributing presents and fulfilling wishes to shoppers, his sleigh was parked at the entrance. At designated times, pretty elves pose for photographs. The reindeers seem to be flying to reach for the stars. Now, which one is Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer?

Hey, here's another sleigh parked outside at the entrance. Another Santa? I'm sure he has just arrived because I can see the floor here is covered with snow. So, you'd better watch out, Santa Clause is coming to town .....

You better watch out, you better not cry, you'd better not fight, I'm telling you why.....

At the 1-Utama Shopping Center, Petaling Jaya (the place of The Secret Garden), they are having a White Christmas.

At the Curve, another shopping complex in Petaling Jaya, its White Winter Wonderland. Look, it is snowing in Malaysia!

Everyone was waiting patiently. When it really started to 'snow' , everyone wanted to experience snow falling on themsleves. Cameras went click, click, click. Say cheese, say kimchee, just give me a lovely smile in your own language.

Soon, everyone realised this, " It is only foam!" Ha ha ha ... Ho ho ho...

I have something that I have been keeping to myself for a long long time. Now I wish to tell you. When I was little, there was this song that mum used to play in her record player, "I saw mummy kissing Santa Claus last night". I really couldn't understand nor accept why the mum in the song was kissing Santa and not dad! After all, Santa's job was to give presents to make kids happy. Finally, it came to light that Santa and dad may be the same person after all. So, finally that song had a happy ending for me. Chapter closed.

Peace on earth will come to stay, when we live Christmas every day.

  20. What an amazing collection of flowers, Autumn Belle! This is what I love about blogging--it brings together gardeners from all over the world, and teaches us about places we'll only likely ever get to visit via the Internet. I hope you have a wonderful, peaceful Christmas, and all the best in the new year.
