X'mas in Melbourne

Sokehah Cheah | 3:41 PM | | |


I'm having a wonderful time in Melbourne experiencing my first X'mas reunion with my family.  There's not much of Christmas decorations in the city, so we took a drive to Ivanhoe, a suburb about 20 mins. drive from the city to view the X'mas light displays on houses put up by the residents of that vicinity.  Here, I share with you the pictures that I managed to take .....they're just awesome!



Can you spot the Santa Claus on the corridor?  It's on a timer and will belt out a X'mas carol wishing everyone a Merry X'mas and Happy New year, at intervals.












Isn't that Santa climbing up the ladder trying to reach the chimney to distribute gifts to the kids of that house?


Hope you'll enjoy the pictures as much as I did.
