13 X'mas trees were erected in Sibu Town Square Phase 1 as part of the annual X'mas Tree Decoration Contest. The trees will stand elegantly here until either Boxing Day or New Year.
Let's first have a look at the 6 trees which are in the contention for the contest. One of the requirements for the trees' design set my the organizer is the ability to withstand the unpredictable weather such as rain and storm.
KTS Tree. Nothing out of the ordinary. Conservative design with doves and flowers as its decoration.
Kingwood Tree. The tree is mainly decorated with the Terendak hats, a conical hat originated from the Melanaus. If I remember correctly, this design had been used last year.
Subur Tiasa Tree. Simple design where the structure mostly covered with white clothes and decorated with trinkets.
Delta Tree. This is one colourful tree which assimilate the colours found in our national flag. Our Prime Minister 1 Malaysia concept also seems to be incorporated into the theme of this tree.
Sugar Bun Tree. Another simple design tree mainly using green and red colour, the traditional colours usually associated with X'mas. Decorated with gifts packages and simple trinkets.
Farley Tree. This is one of the most elaborated tree on display here. It has big and small snow men all over it with doves flying above the tree. I reckon this tree is in the contention to win the contest.
This tree belongs to the organizer itself, the Sibu Municipal Council. This tree is not part of the contest. It is just merely there to occupy the space. It is the very same tree used last year.
