No matter how much effort Orchard Rd puts into its lighting displays (above), it’s kind of hard to wind down into the Christmas spirit when you’ve just started a new job, you’re about ten hours away from your family and you have no money for presents.
However, today, my friend Lifang invited me to watch her perform Christmas carols in sign language in Hougang mall as part of the Deaf Society of Singapore. If anything’s going to quash the grinch then that will. We even got little candy canes!
I’ll upload video as soon as I can, but here’s a still teaser in the meantime. Lifang’s the one on the right. I know right? Amazing.
