I saw one chap slipped all the way down when he apparently missed his footing on the narrow near vertical steps.

Hey, who will believe that the tree
is wired with high voltage... do you?
Just leave the bears alone.
The lady on the right is getting
her yellow bear to greet those on the tree, how cute!
Seeing double?
This is the composite image

Tree of the Day #1 on the left and mine on the right. You job is to figure out how many bear-bear gone missing since Dec 13!

Meanwhile at the Singapore River... those wishes you have penned on the white plastic balls all ended up here.. They will be lit up by colored lights and act as backdrop for the tonight - Count Down 2007. Crowds are building up in the afternoon. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2007

Hey love the Gotheborg pictures. I saw it a couple of times last week. Oh I saw Kurt Wenner at the museum too. Looks like we've been going to the same places!

I even have a photo of the teddy bear Christmas tree at Harbourfront taken in early December. I can't believe I actually ended up comparing your photo with mine to spot the missing teddy bears! lol if you are interested to do the same, you can see the photo here.
