A few weeks ago, we decided to take a trip down to Chinatown for their CNY celebrations. It is our annual pre Chinese New Year routine to be in Chinatown to soak in the Chinese New Year atmosphere.
Liondance has been associated with Chinese New Year for centuries. In our quest to catch at least one Liondance performance for CNY, we found out that there will be one for the opening of Huayi : Chinese Festival of Arts 2013 华艺节 at the Esplanade.
On the third day of Chinese New Year 赤狗日 , we headed down to the Float at Marina Bay for River Hongbao 2013 春到河畔. Traditionally, this is the day where we cease visiting friends and relatives. It is also a day where the Chinese would visit God of Wealth. Since we heard that there will be an 18m tall God of Wealth (財神)at River Hongbao, we decided that this will be our activity would be for the day.
