Situated in the heart of London’s West End, Regent Street is one of the capital’s most famous thoroughfares. Home to more than 75 international flagship stores; Regent Street was described by Visit London dot com as London’s ultimate shopping and lifestyle destination.
This was another pic shared by Malaysian friend 陈雪玲 Shirlyn Tan who lives and works in London. Photographed by her when the street was dressed up for Christmas. I remember walking from here to Piccadilly Circus and loving the longish old curved buildings.
This pic by Shirlyn was featured in the hotel deals finder page for London at:

London attracts Malaysians for Christmas shopping just like how Singapore and Orchard Road draw Malaysian shoppers. The number of Malaysians one can bump into in London is legendary and a running joke among the well heeled. The historical ties of the former Commonwealth colony lives on.
I am proud to have London pics supplied by a fellow Malaysian working in London. Pictures of Regent Street and Oxford Street during Christmas festive shopping captured by Malaysian friend Shirlyn Tan. One can see some traces of the the famous Oxford Street fake snow in the air in this pic.
Shirlyn noted it will be tough finding hotels as many in the area are either super 6 star or brothel type. For the purpose of this listing, I’ll let it cover the entire city, big as it is. You can refine the area by searching with the name of the area or street.

Not hastily removed to make way for Chinese New Year. Happens in multi-ethnic, multi-religious Malaysia. What looked like an angel clambering down the stairs was an angel sticking out from the tree.

On that sunny day, I thought I saw the shadow of a giant Christmas tree appearing on the wall of the Selangor Dredging building. It was the shadow of one of the adjacent Twin Towers. The smiling sun put up her own Christmas decor, albeit for a brief moment.

In an age of impersonal recycling of gifs and video messages.
Think of this as a handmade, homemade or hand-crafted or personalised card from me that included my photography and design…
My friend Teh Lian Chye has a theory:
“During the days of yore, when greeting cards took days, and go through multiple processes to arrive at their destinations, that by the time the cards arrived it’s already new year.
Therefore we used to greet people with ‘Merry Christmas & Happy New Year’. We saved time and effort – two holidays in one sentence. Done”
