Christmas in around the atmosphere!

I went to Esplanet for the SSO - Christmas Concert and it was the best concert that I had ever attended! Singapore Symphony Orchestra is really damn good! With subsidise from my school, I only had to pay 10 dollar for a world class concert and I even get a chance to sing along with SSO at Esplanet!

I can't really recall when was the last time I attend a concert like this beside the Ross Roy that JSPO performed. The concert gave me a nostalgia feeling and really bring back a lot of old memories...

Such as when I heard the French Horn play, it brings me back to the old times when I am the one who play it. When saw the trombone, this bring me the flash back of mischievous Cong Chee. So on and so fort until even members that I knew came across my mind. Really a great experience to heard SSO Concert.

Next is today where by I bought a Nikkor 50mm Af f1.8D lens! Been waiting to own it since long time ago, without it, I won't be able to take the picture below.

This were all Christmas decoration that I took from Orchard Road. This is Xmas tree hunt!

Personally really love using F1.8 prime lens. It really makes the impossible to take picture at low light possible! Of course if i can get a f1.4 or f1.2 in the future, that would be even greater! 
f.y.i the f1.4 lens is at least 2x the f1.8 and f1.2 is 2x the f1.4 >.<

Last time I really hate night photography, what I get was always blury picha!!!

Well I close my eyes and pretend that the snow if falling and I had a White Christmas! *knock knock! time to wake up!

Not just the Christmas Atmosphere everywhere, even the Loves are spread like a virus through the air!

The traffic in this small island is really heavy... not just the traffic, even pedestrian!

Me: Santa! This year present I want unlimited cash flow!
Santa: Well son, with Maybank Platinum Credit Card you can have all you wanted!

I wish those were real! F.O.C.

After walk around for quite some times, is time to cure our stomach with some food around the city! This time Chian's treat at NYDC!This is the first time I dine in, but the reputation is always good and after I tired it, is really damn good!
The bokeh effect archived by using wide open aperture of f1.8. I wish I own the upcoming Nikkor 50mm F1.4 with 9 diaphragm blade. Then the bokeh will be more soft and round.

Aiks my memory is really not good... STM is consuming now and then. The drinks was nice is Lemon xxxxxx I can't remember it. Next is Pasta, Red Hot Chilli Pepper! Thumbs up! I had never tasted cheese pasta which the cheese itself is chewable!

Those who follow my blog, do you remember this (Well I don't know what should I call her), I once too a picha with them too! and... see the background? Nikon is shooting at me too!
Christmas tree that made up from teddy bears! Have you seen it before? Well now you do.. and it is HIGH VOLTAGE so beware!

Now featuring the tallest Christmas tree in Orchard! It belong to Takashimaya! It is about 3 stories in height!

Does anyone know why is there a star at the top of the Christmas tree and why does it need to be decorate with round sphere?
Hmmm... I really wonder why... but it makes me feel great just to stare at them.

Singapore is really one of the world most dense in population. During weekends or holidays, everyone came out from their house and flooded the city... During Christmas the numbers of people will be double from now. At least.

That's all for the Chritmas decoration at Orchard! Hope you all enjoy the photo as much as I took it!
