1 Utama - It's Christmas, Believe!

We got back to PJ in time to visit some of the shopping malls and see their Christmas decorations. Of course, 1 Utama has to be on my list :)

This year's theme is called Believe! The overall decorations focus on hot air balloons and rocking horses, all decked in Christmas colours.


If you look at the layout from above, you may notice that the booths are placed on a what appears to be ancient map, and they form islands/continents on the map. The floor layouts are decked with rocking horses in various designs. Interestingly, there are no Christmas trees in sight, again......


A crowd favourite are the four rocking horses placed around The Oval. The children loved to sit on them and rock the horses, while parents are busy taking pictures.


I felt this was a much better theme than the snowman decoration put up last year. In fact, this is one of the nicer Christmas decorations I have seen this year. I have a feeling they will do something with the horses in conjunction with next year's CNY, but let's see how first ok?

Back from the dead!

Hi everyone, I am back from the dead! (Well, sort of)

My last post was in June 2013, 6 months ago.

So what happened?

Plenty.

Apart from my little business keeping me very busy, I was also busy getting ready for relocation.

Yes, we are moving down south to Johor Bahru.

My husband found a new job in Singapore, but we decided to stay in Johor Bahru instead due to various reasons.

So, my last few months were spent, packing, travelling to JB and back to KL, managing Simple Joy Crafts from two locations, and of course taking care of DC during this time. Unfortunately, it also meant blogging has to put the least priority.

We are currently renting a house within the Nusajaya area, but we also already purchased a house over there. It is still under construction so we will only relocate permanently next year once it is completed.

So there you go, my little update for what's left of 2013 :)
