This is the first time I spent Chinese New Year (CNY) in Singapore and Chinatown is definitely filled with bright red colors and the mood is festive and boisterous leading up to the celebration.
the year of the dragon started off on a good sign, a rainbow over Chinatown
this is the year of the dragon, one of those really great signs within the zodiac
The Chinese character for "blessing"
lots of flowers and positive and happy blessings written on red scroll paper to ring in a new year
lots of sweets for many happy sweet moments for the new year
traditional snacks for guests who stop by to greet and wish each other a great year ahead
the temple in Chinatown is decorated and prepared for all worshippers to ring in a great year
candles are lit for blessings made
wishes are written on placard and become a part of the wishing tree
