Chinese new year lasted for 15 days, throughout the 15 days, it is very common to see Lion Dance Performance near us. Saw one Lion Dance Performance in the wet market while I was doing my marketing. Lion Dance Performance at some of the stalls to usher good luck for the stallholders in the new year. Stallholders need to pay a token fee to the lion dancers for the performance infront of their stall.

Today is the 1st day of the Chinese Lunar Year, this year is the year of the Rooster. Here wishing all Chinese and those who celebrate the occasion, a very Happy Chinese New Year. Not forgetting to collect the ang pows (or red packets) from the different banks to put money inside as gifts to distribute to family, relatives and children of friends. This year I had the bags from a local bank to keep the angpows. The bag is so useful, it had different compartments, so I can keep different ang pows that contained different amount of money inside. The closer the relation of the giver and receiver will be bigger amount of money of gifts.

Last Saturday, I went to join in the fun to watch the Chinese New Year Street Light Up at Chinatown to user in the year of the Rooster. Time passes fast, Chinese New Year will be on 28th January 2017 and last for 15 days. There will be lots of programmes to watch in Chinatown during this period. For more information on the programmes, please view from the official website. This year the Chinese New Year decoration of a big rooster looked so pretty especially at night. There were so many people in Chinatown that night, I could hardly go near the stage to watch the performances. Best was the lighting of the firecrackers followed by fireworks. Watch the video below for the firecrackers and fireworks towards the end of the video. Even South Bridge Road was beautifully decorated.
