When I first purchased my gold
brocade vintage dress, it looked like this:
It was cute but the narrow bottom skirt layer made it look
very stuffy and dated on anyone under the age of 40, so
I brought it to the tailor, removed it, and altered the
hemline to make it a bit shorter.

Because the choir there is spectacular, we attended the Archbishop's Christmas Eve mass at the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd. It's the oldest Catholic church in Singapore, and I'm fond of its architecture despite the fact that there are currently (worrying!) cracks along the walls. Restoration work is possibly due before the congregation is brought closer to God... when the roof falls on top of their heads. I kid. Anyway, the cathedral is also home to two gorgeous pipe organs. It is apparently the only church here with two pipe organs within the same space. The Gallery Organ (pictured below) is the oldest playable organ in the country.
Below is the 9-rank Choir Organ built by Robert Navaratnam,
utilising old pipework from various other organs.
I hope everyone had a very lovely Christmas!
