Our Bling-bling Christmas Tree is up!

~ Posted on Wednesday, December 22, 2010 at 9:08 AM ~

Previously, we've not been bothered with Christmas tree decorations and just use a very small table top Christmas tree (like 1 feet or something) which was used long long ago when my father in law was still alive and had a car workshop which my MIL will put the mini tree up whenever Christmas time is near. So, with this year, hubby decided we should get a Christmas tree! And so, we've been searching for an appropriate Christmas tree for some time.

Table top? Put on the floor? 3 feet? 4 feet? Artificial? Real one?

How about the deco? Get those already come with the deco? Or buy them separately?

Gaaaa... all these questions...

And finally hubby bought our first proper Christmas tree!

It was a 4 feet artificial Christmas tree, it came with some basic ornaments and has this fiber optic thingy at the end of the firs which lits up the tree in few different colors when you turned on its switch. As in, you see the tree changes colors every few seconds. Nice! And the fiber optic thingy is very safe and Ben could touch it without us having to worry he might fry his fingers or get himself electrocuted... What a bling-bling tree huh?

And the tree blinking in different colors...

After the pictures above were taken, my MIL has moved the tree onto the TV cabinet as she's scared Ben is going to pull down the tree. And  I  have also quietly took out and nicely told her NOT to put in some of the ornaments she sneakily added into the Christmas tree.

Just in case you want to know, Chinese New Year ornaments SHOULD NEVER NEVER EVER be mixed into a Christmas tree. Thankfully, my MIL has gotten the hint after my very polite pep talk and has not been adding in her Chinese New Year ornaments anymore...

Now, we only have to put up the Christmas presents below the tree and we're done!

To those of you who are celebrating Christmas, my family and I would like to wish you a blessed Christmas and a wonderful year ahead!

And those who are not celebrating Christmas, have a wonderful holidays and year ahead too!

Hi Steph!
Yes, it's a like a new toy for Ben. Grandma is so concerned she immediately shifted the tree up on higher ground where Ben can't reach it Frown

Hi Pauline!
Wah, enjoy your hometown trip! So nice to be able to go back hometown to celebrate this festivity!

Hey Catheryn!
Thank you, we like the tree too! Am not sure whether there's any plan to remove and store the tree after Christmas since MIL so excited with her CNY ornaments... hmmmm
