  • Happy Chinese New Year! Xīn nián kuài lè!

  • Seraph here reporting from Chinatown!

  • This is a place where every local will head to to prepare for their Chinese New Year decorations, or just simply soak in the festive atmosphere here!

  • And, of course, you can definitely find the most authentic local Lunar New Year goodies here!

  • So, what are you waiting for?

  • [The Wishing Tree]

  • I think this Wishing Tree event is super meaningful because I not only got to write a wish for my loved ones, but also I get to donate $2 to charity as well!

  • [The Bazaar]

  • See? This is a rat plushie.

  • So you can see there're actually a lot of rat motives all around Chinatown.

  • Well that is because this is the year of the Rat.

  • Ta-da ta-da! See all the rat symbols.

  • This is bird's nest jelly.

  • And it's kind of mixed with fruit, so it's fruit bird's nest jelly, and this is the grape flavour.

  • Suck the jelly with all your mouth.

  • That's a lot!

  • Xiè xie!(Thank you!)

  • Pineapple tart!

  • [The Lights]

  • Look at these street lanterns!

  • Aren't they exquisite?

  • Don't you wanna own one?

  • Well, now you can!

  • From the period of 3rd to 17th February, you can actually apply to adopt one or more of these lanterns.

  • Actually I think it's a really really great green initiative because the beautiful decorations don't just end up in the trash after a festive event.

  • [The Stage]

  • Chinatown is where one can truly feel the spirit of our local Chinese traditions and culture.

  • So the next time you come to Singapore during our Chinese New Year period, remember to come to Chinatown to truly experience our local Chinese New Year traditions.
