5 Best places in Singapore to have a Cold Christmas in SInga

Postby saturdaynitespecial » Tue, 09 Dec 2008 8:25 pm

Its getting cold…in Europe, not in the Tropics though. Although we have wonderful Christmas music, Christmas decoration and a lot of Christmas

Sales to get your Christmas presents, there is no real Christmas atmosphere here because of the missing Christmas weather.
Although you could buy tons and tons of 1$ icecream at every corner, there wont be enough to cool down the temperature here to a nice zero degrees.

But there is help, for everybody in Singapore who definitely doesn’t want to miss his usual Christmas atmosphere in Singapore, here are the places where you will be able to see your breath evaporating in nice white fog just in front of you.

1. Snowboarding at Snow City

Every city or country that counts itself as one of the “To Be”

You can add Toys-R-Us on the 6th floor of Paragon. Probably the coldest place I've been in about 5 years! :D

Yeah as a local bred Singaporean, I agree with you. ANyway you will not get hypothemia inside the bus, rest assured.


U can get :mad: @ the driver and provide feedback to the bus companies; ie if u have the time. Do a google for 1)SMRT and 2) SBSTransit.



ANyway if u r a burly 6ft 4inches guy, like Hulk Hogan, u can try to stand near to the driver and rub your hands, blow your hands....and see whether the driver get the message,




...........
:D

saturdaynitespecial,

The least you could do was give proper credit for your plagiarized posting. I notice that you have cut and pasted it from www.angryangmo.com which was posted on 5 December. Pretty sad. Why didn't you just paste a link like this:

I'll have to admit, it's a pretty sad site. If that's what you call responsible writing you are welcome to it. You are definitely better off there. Fortunately, you and your type there are a minuscule proportion of Singaporeans. The educated ones go elsewhere and carry on intelligent conversations that can be understood with having to wade through a sewer of foul language.
