River Hongbao 春到河畔 2015


Visited River Hongbao 2015 held at Floating Platform @ Marina Bay on the fourth day of Chinese New Year. 2015 is a special year because we are celebrating Singapore’s 50 years of Independence too.
Let's celebrate SG50 together and welcoming the Year of the Goat.

This year, we travelled back in time to 1965 where we recollected some of the precious moments and traditions of our nation’s celebration of Lunar New Year over the past 50 years as part of SG50.

This must be the tallest God of Fortune that I ever seen. The God of Fortune is 18-metre tall.
财神到. 财神到.

All the displays were really beautiful and eye-catching. We can't wait to check out all the displays.

舞狮贺年 Lion Dance Cheers.
Lion dance performance has been a part of our Chinese New Year culture. They will always visit our house on the second day of Chinese New Year.

This is the SG50 Giant Mural Wall.
50 years of independence did not come by easy. Sincerely thank our pioneer generation for the perseverance for building up the country and transforming them into today's cosmopolitan city. Thank you very much.

The chinese Zodiac: Monkey.
2015 looks set to be a smooth-sailing year. Ample support from benefactors shall help propel you closer to success.

For people who are born in the year of Rabbit, 2015 is still an ideal year for you to realise your dreams. Your success shall depend on the thoroughness of your planning.

Zodiac: Horse.
One must be bold to explore new ventures! Your attitude and thoughts shall determine the outcome of this year. You should also stay away from gambling, as you will end up losing more than what you gained.

The best zodiac among all: Tiger.
2015 marks a year of good fortune and abundant opportunities. Along with the aid of benefactors, you shall be able to attain great achievements in all your endeavours. 

2015 is the year of Goat.
Avoid attending celebrations and funerals.
Plan carefully and avoid acting on impulse. Leisure gambling during the Lunar New Year may be a norm, but you must not overindulge in it.

Making my way to the Merdeka (Independence) Bridge.

Merdeka Bridge was built in 1955 and completed in 1956. The name "Merdeka" was given to mark Singapore’s self-government status resulting from the 1955 elections.

好美味 So Shiok!

Wishing Well.
Many were making their wishes and trying to toss their coins to hit the bells.

Feeling hungry and thirsty, we went to check out the food street where there were vast variety of local delicacies, including Hainanese chicken rice, bak kut teh, yong tau foo, satay, Katong laksa, hokkien prawn noodles and ice-kacang served.

We went for mango juice and tako balls.

It was an enjoyable day out. It was a well deserved break for me, I was coping at home the past 2 days rushing for my projects. Need to take a break now and continuing doing later on.

Good bye.
