Vivocity Christmas Display 2016

My toaster was toast by my toast this morning. So a trip to Vivocity was needed for a replacement. I thought i would take my baby (Canon 700D) along for some snapshots of Xmas decorations in the mall. Let capture some Xmas magic. If it doesn't exit, let's create some.


 T'is the Season 
Some malls would place their Xmas light-up / displays up the front, but not Vivocity. They put them on their roof where they have playground for kids. By playground, i mean toddler pools.

The mall is located right next to the Brani Island where it contains the large container terminal.
Water is always popular in the equator (pretty close to it).

If you look at the sign on the left photo below, Vivocity is celebrating their 10th birthday.

Don't all these photos make you want to come and shop for a toaster (bought a $35 Phillips model) and had a Pepper Lunch for dinner?

Ain't they magical at all? No? What about futuristic then?


  Return of the Rogue One 


Star Wars lead in line "a long time ago in a galaxy far far away..."


Not a long time ago (about 30 years ago) in a cinema near you...A Star Wars episode came out every 5 years or longer. Didn't Star Wars: The Force Awakens just came out last year? Let's get ready for the Rogue One...one year later...and get ready for the merchandise...

Just in case you don't notice the merchandise shop, the giant, some 8 to 10m tall AT-AT (aka Walker) is placed there to get your attention.

Guarding the merchandise are the Imperial Shadow Stormtroopers (but who guards them? The mall security guards, silly).

The above action figures (especially the AT-AT) might be to big to fit into a bus or taxi, but the following figures should be ok.

Mine! All mine! Muhahaaaa!


 Meet Those Mascots 
As this is the mall's 10th anniversary, don't be surprised if you run into some of the mall mascots. Although the mascot in middle photo below wouldn't come to you, you have to go to it.

Glad i have my baby with me. And a toast to Vivocity.
