Our family wefie in front of Year of the Monkey lantern centerpiece, featuring little monkeys hanging around a large peach tree. It is a shame the monkeys appear a little too small and we could not get a closer shot.
The Chinese New Year Festive Street Bazaar at Chinatown is the best place to feel the spirit of the festive season. We were blessed with a breezy evening and it was a pleasure taking our time browsing through the street stalls, sampling mouth-watering cny goodies and looking out for more cny decorative items for our home.
I found it amusing when our girl noticed the banner indicating Free Wi-Fi at Chinatown and quickly inform her brother. Seems like the availability of Wi-Fi perks their interest even though we were trying to make our way through the crowd!
If you have some time, do drop by Chinatown Heritage Centre. We had some interesting reads about how different dialect group (Cantonese, Teochew and Hokkien) celebrate Chinese New Year. Alternatively, you can also go for their Multimedia guided tour where you can explore the galleries or Character guided tour to learn about iconic Chinatown characters through their personal stores. Admission tickets applies - more information at http://chinatownheritagecentre.com.sg
Chinatown Festive Street Bazaar will continue from now till 7th February 2016, spreading across Pagoda Street, Smith Street, Sago Street, Temple Street and Trengganu Street. Do not miss the annual festive bazaar sale as we welcome the Year of the Monkey!
