It’s that time of the year again when people scramble to fill their fridge with goodies and spring clean their home. Aroma of BBQ pork and continuous replay of Chinese New Year music fills the air.
Yes, it’s the dong dong chiang period, aka Chinese New Year will be here soon. Chinese New Year begins on the first day of the lunar calendar, also known as the Lunar New Year, symbolise the start of Spring. Chinese New Year revolves around the 12 Chinese Zodiac. This is the year of the Snake and the first day of Chinese New Year will happen this Sunday, February 10th.
Deciding to brave the crazy crowd in Singapore’s Chinatown, I took some photos inorder to capture the festive spirit.
So on behalf of the Artitute team, we would like to wish you a Happy Lunar New Year and may the year of the Snake, brings you lots of love and happiness.
