Last year I was quite impressed by the Starbucks dragon bear and this year I was excited to see them continuing with the theme. There was a bear with a green snake around it’s neck ala Britney Spears. But it sure was expensive at about S$28. I guess if you bought the dragon bear you would want to continue your collection, although in my opinion the dragon bear was cuter. But if you love snakes like Bindi Irwin then I’m sure you’ll want to get this. The snake cup was pretty cool too. I found the Starbucks depiction of the snake sign classy and not scary or creepy like I’ve seen at other places.
Plaza Singapura was decked out for Chinese New Year. A bit messy though. And I’m not sure why they were advertising the pandas at the zoo as well.
With the closure of Carrefore there is quite a lot of space that is being converted. Cold Storage, the supermarket, took up an area just for selling Chinese New Year Festive Products.
