Early Christmas

Christmas tree in the works

Walk around the malls, and we can see the Christmas decorations come popping up. It is a reminder that Christmas is coming.

In fact in the news, there are reports that Christmas is early this year, where retailers are going all out to woo their customers earlier - before the dark economic crises sinks further.

Well, I'm also having an early Christmas... but of a different kind.

These are not Christmas decorations... but instead the fillers to fill up the space in between the boxes.

I learnt about having these plastic fillers but can't remember their name. And was actually searching a bit on where to get them. This was really my first time doing such (because of the different packaging requested).

Some search and I eventually bought them at the local post office!

Putting these fillers makes me think of snow white Christmas - but instead of what some may use these to make artificial snow, I'm filling up boxes instead haha!

But that's good news, as I'm proud that we are getting reorders for my first book, Batik Inspirations... To make this doubly sweet, this is from Indonesia some more!

Hooray to the early Christmas! :)


  1. HIhi ,

  2. wow... i too cant wait for Christmas! We also started our Church Christmas Decoration...

  3. The fillers reminded me of the boxes that arrive from Kinokuniya. So nice!

    I just bought a Christmas CD from Starbucks yesterday when I was buying my usual coffee. :D

  4. Congratulation Q!

    I love the atmosphere at Singapore during X'mas! It's totally different world compare with JB!
    I might bring my family to SG this coming X'mas....just another 'fat' dream that hopefully not that jam on the causeway! Haha!

  5. Reorders? Wonderful news, QC. Congratulations!

  6. Christmas is coming! But I have never celebrated it...wait...I did. But it was a long, long time ago. Perhaps this year could be different. I love christmas songs. It reminds me of my time working on jonker street with those blaring x'mas songs. Quachee, any present for us? Ha =D
