Another glimpse of the magnificent horse at Chinatown. It’s been cool but today clear skies reigned and it was hard to keep my eyes open in the sun’s glare. So bring out your sunglasses if you’re visiting Singapore.
The annual fair that we usually check out at the Takashimaya basement end today. You can get huge ang pow packets there.
Have always felt the decorations at My Village in Serangoon Gardens to be particularly charming.
Wanted to check out the Chinese New Year Buzz in the heartlands. Instead of the usual dragon we noticed goldfish instead. In the day time the estate gets very hot, but at night it’s nice cool and breezy. Want a … Continue reading
Tasteful decorations at the little mall – My Village. Tried the assam laksa, but it was nowhere near what I had in Geylang opposite Aljunied MRT.
Very subtle decorations at Wheelock Place. The cardboard dragon at Muji. Fanta and F&N Orange is a must at Chinese New Year. I think it’s a particularly Singapore thing. Used to love the free flow of the fizzy drink at … Continue reading
I think the Liang Court supermarket is just wonderful. It has the most beautiful arrangement in terms of both packaging and layout. Just so relaxing to grocery shop here. I love how they very diligently change their offerings with each … Continue reading
This little pink dancing lion was just the sweetest thing. Kids can stage their own lion dance performance a bit like the puppeteer show in ‘The Sound of Music’. And very expensive gold plated dragons. I think the price tag … Continue reading
The red dragon looked even more awesome all lit up, against the pretty blue sky at dusk. I am so glad I got a close up look. Massive load of cars. And then the massive throngs of people. Felt bad … Continue reading
Another mall that’s buzzing with Chinese New Year festivities is VivoCity. There is an exhibition with vendors from China each year. If you need sweets for Chinese New Year, you can’t go wrong with St Michael’s (I know it’s M&S … Continue reading
The best place to experience Chinese New Year is Chinatown, but if you can’t bear crowds then you can get a bit of the festive atmosphere at the malls which are all decked out for Chinese New Year. Dragons everywhere. … Continue reading
I still like Liang Court best, but this little mall is beginning to become a close second. Especially when it comes to food other than Japanese food, where the best is still found at Liang Court in my opinion. Had … Continue reading
This was our second visit and it was fun. Each time I see something new. This is the only time I don’t mind getting bumped into. It actually adds to the festiveness. Just knowing that everyone is out shopping for … Continue reading
You have to try the snack stalls here. Really authentic stuff from China. Pancakes with spicy pork filling. So good. I always see long queues forming. Another popular stall that we tried the last time. The yummy pacake that reminds … Continue reading
It’s always most festive in Chinatown in the weeks before Chinese New Year. It was so crowded. Every year you can spot people crowding around this board reading their fortune for the dragon year. A close-up but couldn’t get close … Continue reading
If you’re intending to decorate your house for CNY, the Chinatown bazaar seems to have the lowest prices. But I guess for something unique you could go to the other countries in Asia where the festival is celebrated as well, … Continue reading
Chinatown is so lively, and you should head there to check it out at least once. Saw dragons everywhere. On angpow packets, in cutesy soft toy form and made with paper as decoration to welcome the New Year. The year … Continue reading
It just dawned on me that I have blogged a ton about Chinese New Year 2011 – The Year of the Rabbit. Thought I’d better be a bit organized since February is already here. Here are all my Singapore CNY … Continue reading
I loved checking out this new, cosy little mall, especially with the awesome Chinese New Year decorations. Love the pretty pink lanterns that look like flowers and paper cutting styled bunnies everywhere. I thought the cut-outs of the twin brothers … Continue reading
