This year Christmas is a little quite here in Kota Kinabalu.. maybe because I spend more time at home then outside in the street. Every year there is a Christmas event in Gaya Street. Unlike last year, this year I never had the chance to visit Gaya Street and experience the Christmas evetn there.
In the shopping center or shopping mall Christmas carols can be heard. on the 23rd Of December I was suppose to have plan to attend my uncles event held at the City Mall shopping center his event was the last event before Christmas eve.
The plan was to attend my younger sister's father in law 69th Birthday celebration later proceed to the event at City Mall. We usually have small family gathering of 10 in any of the local restaurant. usually start at about 7pm and lasted until 0830pm, but that day my sister did not mention anything about huge family gathering of 10 tables each table is for 10 pax. imagine instead of 1 table fit for family of 10 pax, that day about 100 invited guest attended the function. luckily I decided to wear my Jeans, normally with small gathering I would just go for a shorts Khakis. only thing is, on that day every body was wearing shoes, and I am the only one with "slippers". imagine that for a dinner function.
Anyway the dinner started at about 0830pm and lasted for about 2 hours. I left early somewhere around 10:21pm and missed attending my relative stage show at City Mall.
So this post is actually about Christmas, how streets were light in the night and decoration being prepared for this festive season.
I found this over the internet, and thought that I should share this to everyone. and hope 1 day I may have a chance to visit any of these place and spend the Christmas there with my lovely wife..
