Chinese New Year season in Singapore

Chinese New Year season in Singapore

We arrived in Singapore from Taipei during the Chinese New Year festive season (Chinese New Year is technically celebrated over 15 days).

Dragon Dance at Lau Pa Sat (Telok Ayer food court)

We had the good fortune to celebrate the joyous season in three countries, starting in Taiwan, followed by Singapore, and finishing in Malaysia. We were in Singapore for two nights before hopping over to Kuching. We would be back in Singapore again after our Malaysian trip.

Year of the Dog—in front of Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (Singapore encourages creativity—many arts and design schools including high schools)

We joined the festivities on the waterfront, the entrance to the Singapore River. Here are some photos during this brief stopover.
