Chinese New is upon us.
It only means our calenders will be packed to the brim with events before, during and finally conclude with the finale event Chingay 2013.
This year, Daddy has been invited as part of the media team covering Chingay 2013.
History of Chingay ( From Chingay 2013)
A dazzling extravaganza of colours and cultural diversity, Chingay Parade Singapore is known for its resplendent floats and multi-cultural local and international performances that are an insight to our festive traditions and delight the hearts of many Singaporeans and tourists.
The word Chingay is from the Hokkien dialect, of which the Mandarin equivalent is “Zhuang Yi” , meaning "the art of masquerade". The festival began as a neighbourhood parade with only Chinese elements in 1973. Today, the Chingay Parade has evolved to be the grandest street and floats parade in Asia, showcasing the rich, vibrant multi-culturalism of Singapore and exciting cultures all over the world. To all Singaporeans, the next Chingay Parade is a parade of our people, our dreams and our pride!
The theme for this year is Fire in Snow.
We heard it is going to be a spectacular event where the entire parade route will be covered in ocean of fire!
That sure sounds hot!
Watch this space as we bring you up close and personal with the performers for the actual event from the Pit building.
