Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Lunar New Year is one of the busiest festivals in Asian countries like Singapore, Malaysia, and China.
The once-a-year hustle and bustle begins weeks before the New Year. There is the spring cleaning at home which is akin to sweeping away the old and ushering in the new. Then, there is the shopping for flowers and festive goodies, and the preparation and cooking of favourite dishes. And family members will come together on New Year’s eve for the reunion dinner.
Here are some photos of Chinatown lights taken a couple of weeks ago. It would be crazy to try to venture into Chinatown on New Year’s eve or over the weekend. Even the good bargains at the last hours of New Year’s eve would not entice me to make a trip down to Chinatown.
Wishing everyone a healthy and prosperous year of the Ox!
