Again, lovely decorations. Saw people in a frenzy – a woman with her facial mask still on, rushing to get last minute new year stuff. Had a meal at Crystal Jade La Mian (not so fantastic – perhaps the better … Continue reading
About 27 degrees celcious at night and much better to see the decorations all lit up than in the sweltering heat of the day. River Hongbao 2015 is taking place on the floating platform at Marina Bay from 2pm to … Continue reading
A festive atmosphere at one of the oldest estates.
Classy decorations at Somerset 313. Found the draping of the long red cloth rather elegant.
Interesting window displays and a creative take on the word for goat (which really looks like a goat as Chinese is a pictographic language). The promotional poster at Parkway Parade looked interesting too.
The plants at Ikea are pretty attractive especially what they have brought in for Chinese New Year.
Braved the punishing heat in Chinatown to soak in more of the Goat Year festivities. Saw this pretty display of flowery goats in the bazaar amongst other things like vendors calling out for you to buy their candies or groundnuts. … Continue reading
Saw some of the prettiest decorations and Chinese themed art sold here. Couldn’t help admiring the antique looking horse and the blue ox.
If you want the festive feel, but want to avoid the heat and really crazy crowds at Chinatown, the VivoCity bazaar might be a good option. Some cute goat themed stuff to be found too.
I found the decorations at Pan Pacific Hotel very pretty and the photo I took doesn’t do it justice.
The special orange cheesecake at Coffeebean was very good and I’m not even a fan of cheesecake (prefer butter cakes with icing or the kind of Sara Lee type chocolate fudge cake you can only find in the US).
The Marks & Spenser window display makes you turn your head so it’s pretty effective marketing.
I was pretty impressed by the giant firecrackers at ION. I liked the flashing lights mimicking how a firecracker would go off. Without it the display would be boring. Understated looking window display at IWC which I liked as well.
Decided to put all my Chinese New Year, year of the goat posts in one post starting with the oldest one: The Goats are Out in Chinatown Happy Goat Buns at BreadTalk Creative Goat Display for Chinese New Year Another … Continue reading
I refer to Ngee Ann City as Takashimaya although the department store is only part of it. Just for ease of reference. You can truly feel the Chinese New Year buzz here with their yearly bazaar at the basement atrium. … Continue reading
The goat was pretty cool.
If you want to feel the festive cheer walk through Wisma Atria. Snapped at some of the more interesting window displays we saw at Wisma.
Among all these the one that tempts me the most are the pineapple tarts by Glory, although I think my aunt makes far superior melt in your mouth tarts.
It’s the year of the goat sheep or ram, but it seems like most stores prefer the cute cuddly sheep. I thought the decorations at Star Vista were rather unique and charming. Toy soldiers at Christmas have been changed into … Continue reading
Whether you’re a tourist or a local, walking through the Chinatown bazaar pre Chinese New Year is a rather fun activity. Spotted more goat themed decorations.
