Happy Chinese New Year...



Went into the city yesterday to catch the preparations for the week of Chinese New Year festivities (27th Jan - 5th Feb).  2017 is the Year of the Rooster.. is that you, is 2017 your year? It's not mine :) The blow ups here at Elizabeth Quay were stoically holding up under the sweltering heat, which was no mean feat, I was struggling a little myself! Will head back to the city through the week to capture more of the celebrations, always enjoy the traditional Lion dance. Hope you are having a good weekend, take care and stay safe...

  2. Great captures Grace, love all the red! I wasn't as brave, decided not to leave my air-conditioned home at all! It's going to be cooler in the next few days so I might go and have a look too.

  3. Thank You! I see the incoming rooster/phoenix and the snake (c`est moi).
    Glad you are not a rooster, as one's own year is unlucky! Happy New Year and much wealth and happiness to YOU with Good Health mon ami!

  7. I'm guessing a lot of folks are in for a lot of fun! I've not participated in a Chinese New Year celebration, but I've heard about them and they certainly are festive and colorful!

  8. What a fun splash of color these inflatables make. The year of the rooster is no my year either. Chinese New Year is a good celebration.
