Our Xmas Light

After telling Cath that we'v got the Xmas lights on, she has been perli-ing me for not showing them yet. So Cath, here they are. ;)

It was a cold night and the rain was just starting. I actually thought I took some video of the somewhat-dancing-light but it has been a while since I used the video mode on the camera that i forgot I still have to push the button for the video to start rolling. Duh!

Anyways, as you can see from the pic, the stars didn quite go around the railing. We only bought a box with 10 stars and we thought they were enough since our balcony is small but obviously we were wrong. We are still going to get another box so we can 'balanced'out' the balcony coz we realise that our balcony looks kinda funny. ;P

Last night we went around the apartment to see who else and how many other apartments put up the light. Not many at all. There was this 3 units (1st, 2nd and 3rd) that put up the light whc makes them the most coordinated but suffice to say despite our small balcony, ours is the BRIGHTEST! yay!

Hi Farina

You know, I have never really gone all out to decorate the outside of my house. My lights, in the past, were just a string of miserable lights outlining the windows. :D

Like Ms J, I have decided to wait for the sales (either 26 Dec or in January) to stock up for next year's Christmas. I am eyeing a pre-lit douglas fir (yes.. the laziness in me.. haha. Actually I am tired of stringing lights around the tree. I have been doing that for years). I hope that it will be slashed down to 50% or more. Going to load up on garlands too.

Your balcony looks festive. :)
