This morning's bus was dressed up as a cow. A large pair of white horns rose above the roof of the driver's compartment and a tail with a jaunty sweep decorated the rear.
Bus decoration is part of life in Singapore with the desire to get the advertising message out taking many forms, in this case bovine.
On the subject of decorations it is very surprising to see that the Christmas decorations are already going up in Orchard Road and Tanglin Mall is featuring its nativity tableau.
This a full two months before Christmas actually happens; the festive spirit seems to be coming earlier each year.
Reportedly with the big APEC gathering in Singapore next month the decorations have gone up early to make a good impressions for the delegates.
All of their Christmases will have come at once - literally.
