Travel: Chinese New Year, Singapore

Before Christmas Singapore had a little set back when decorating for the holiday. A big Christmas tree caught fire due to some electrical malfunction. It wasn’t replaced. According to the taxi driver who told us this, the occurrence made the city officials more cautious. He said they are taking extra precaution now that they are preparing for Chinese New Year. Understandably so. We got to see the Christmas decorations but also the Chinese New Year decorations. It was over night that some were changed. These pictures are from Chinatown, I think they will be lit later on. Hopefully with electrical lights, not fire…




The New Year will be the year of the Monkey. There are quite a number of monkeys loose around town in Singapore. In the little picture (yep the bad quality one) there is a monkey hanging from the tree.
