Christmas Tree Ablaze at Orchard Road

29 Nov

I just read the news that a christmas tree outside Ngee Ann City Tower A caught fire last night at about 8.36pm. Pictures and videos are posted at Yahoo Singapore. Unfortunately, the fire destroyed the christmas tree. No report out yet on the cause of the blaze.

There were three christmas trees outside of Ngee Ann City that I remembered. From the videos and picture, it looked to be the tree on the extreme left. For comparison, these pictures were taken last thursday night before the fire destroyed the tree.

Thursday night, there were maintenance or repairs done to that christmas tree on the far side. If that was the christmas tree on fire last night, I wonder if there are any faulty wiring. Sad to see it go up in a blaze of glory. So very very glad I got pictures before its destruction.

Hope there is a replacement soon.

    It always amazes me how much southeast Asia blends the holidays of all the major religions and especially seems to enjoy Christmas. I have a photo of major street decorations in Ho Chi Minh City and while in Hanoi last March the hotel dining room seemed to have permanent decorations.

      Year’s end is always a festive mood everywhere worldwide. For us here in southeast asia, this is also the best time to shop, shop, shop and take in all the pretty sights. That’s the commercial aspect of it.
