Uniquely Singapore

Spotted downtown today:

Uniquely Singapore

I’m not sure if someone at the Singapore Tourism Board overlooked a little thing the rest of us like to call irony, but isn’t it pretty strange to flaunt the lyrics for “The Christmas Song” on a banner sharing the “Uniquely Singapore” logo? Unless they meant to say that uniquely, in Singapore, we’ve swallowed the idea of the massive retail extravaganza that passes for Xmas, Jack Frost and all.

Anyway, it made me stop and laugh. And then take this picture.

Shopping hint: Marina Square doesn’t seem to be drawing that much of a crowd, perhaps because people don’t know what stores there are in the reopened shopping complex. So it’s as good a place as any to do one’s last-ditch Xmas shopping without being smothered or stampeded to bits by the crowds.
