Today is Boxing Day. A lot of shops are running a crazy discount, including major stores, such as Myer, BigW and Target. This sales is the largest discount during the year! Actually, that is a shopping day. I believe most of people in Brisbane went for shopping today.
I went to Westfield Chermside for the boxing day shopping today. That is the largest Brisbane shopping mall, where has Kmart, BigW, Target, Myer and David Jones. I should be get everything in one spot!
However, that was a painful day. I arrived in there around 11am. I had spent half hour for parking and the whole mall were full of people, I saw even some shops required the people to line up for entry! That was crazy!
Fortunately, I got a 1000 threads fitting sheet in half price at Target. Finally, my hard work got a return! The boxing day sales always has some good stuff.
I guess everyone in Hong Kong is very busy with shopping now, because a lot of shops are on sales.
In Brisbane, no one goes to shopping too. Most of shops are closed. Even Mcdonald’s is not opening too. Most of people I know planned to spend their Christmas with family and friends. They will setup a barbecue at backyard, invite the people to their home.
For us, we went to the Christmas service in my church. After that, we had a lunch together with brothers and sisters .
This afternoon, I went a shopping center near my home. I found the car park was almost full. Inside the shopping center, there were many people too. Moreover, I found a lot of people were in BigW and Woolworth. I guess they were busy with buying Christmas presents or buying food for their big Christmas feast! That sounds everyone is keen to go out for shopping today. No doubts, the major shopping centers in Brisbane will extend their trading hours to mid-night for Christmas Shopping!
There is another must-do Christmas event, that is visiting the winners’ house of 4KQ Christmas Lights Competition . Each winner put a lot of beautiful Christmas light decorations on their house, aiming to win this competition. I visit those winners’ house every year.
This year, I went to South Residential Winner at Edens Landing. The house is very very impressive, the whole house is surrounded by a tons of light decorations. It lighted up the whole area!
Moreover, I love there are star-shaped light decorations at the roof. They keeps to flashing. That looks firework on the sky!
This house is very very cool! Please don’t miss this event!
Address:11 Lucy Drive, Edens Landing
Last Friday, when I was in King George square, I found the city hall turned into new colors. Well, actually, that is a part of Gold Lotto City Hall Light Spectacular. The organizer used a 3d projector to project 3d images on City Hall and those images changes every 15 minutes. Suddenly, the City Hall turned into a magic castle. That is fantastic. Please don’t miss that!
