Fortunately for the 2014 celebration, we get the chance to visit the Barrage in the afternoon. Though the lights in the evening are really attractive, I still appreciate the view during the daytime. You can forget the warm weather and instead, enjoy the different kind of fun that you can have here.
Aside from the colorful displays at the barrage, they also put up a mini-carnival for everyone. There were kiddie rides for the young ones and game booths that even the young at hearts can enjoy.
And just like any fun place, it would not be complete without drinks and snacks. There was a designated tent just for the food stalls. There were noodles, dumplings, ice cream and cold drinks to choose from.
Most of the visitors were tired and feeling thirsty. While there were cold drinks, some preferred to beat the heat with few scoops of ice cream. But for this stall, customers must be ready to be entertained while buying that sweet snack. The guy with the red cap will show his antics before handing the treat to you. Try not to be annoyed and just beat his tricks with the stick (that rhymes!) 😉
As the majority of Singapore’s population are Chinese, CNY is undoubtedly the most celebrated holiday of each year. Though I am from a different country and culture, I enjoy learning, discovering the traditions and festivities of this great island.
Let us see what they have for this year’s celebration and I will share them with you soon. 🙂
