East Meets West A kind of marriage between Asia and Europe as my life yo-yo's between the two this year! It's about the contrasts and similarities and especially the Art, Culture and Food.

Singapore. Lanterns and Snakes!!

ITALY | Saturday, 9 February 2013 | Views [475]

It's Singapore and the Chinese New Year. Everyone is on holiday for an extended four day weekend and there are red lanterns, fireworks and snakes everywhere. It would appear that some people are not very happy because it is the year of the snake.  The poor thing seems to be the least popular of the zodiac animals!!

Last  night we watched an incredible rehearsal of the Firework  display which is to be shown at midnight tonight over Marina Bay.  Tonight China Town will be crowded with people looking round the hundreds if stalls and watching the various dance and theatre productions.
