It is the time of the year again where we will say goodbye to the current Year (2013) and welcoming the New Year (2014). Some of you may be in the middle of a tour overseas having quality time with friends or with family members and others may have no plan this year.
Similarly it is also time of the year for advertisers, the shop owners and the Singapore Tourism Board to light up Orchard Road with Christmas themes and motifs. As reported, this year will have seven pieces of photographic backdrops, intended as part of this year’s transformation of the shopping belt into a winter wonderland. This year’s light up, back for its 30th year, is called Christmas on A Great Street.
At our twilight (or silver hairs) years, we do not know when we will not be able to or not able to do what we can do best. (For me at 71+, I do not know when will be my last). So, it is timely to count our blessing year by year by meeting with like-minded people to cherish our fellowship and having a simple “Christmas” food court dinner together.
As with any other years, this is a good time and opportunity to stroll, after dinner, along Orchard Road and try your night photography skills with your smartphone and/or camera. For those interested, please see details below.
Date: 20th Dec 2013 (Friday evening)
Time: 6.30PM to 9.30PM
Meeting Place and Start Point: Tanglin Mall Food Court (junction of Orchard Road & Grange Road). End Point will be at Somerset or Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station.
1) Dinner before chat: 6.30PM to 7.30PM: for those who can come early, we can have a dinner together in the food court and getting to know each other better.
2) Fellowship: 7.30PM to 8.30PM: Chat at Mall (free n easy – form your own small group on per table basis). Share what you have experienced this year, your reflections, what you can do better, etc. [A quote from the late George Carlin on The Paradox of our Time -“The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.”].
