The highlight at the Singapore River Hong Bao 2015 must be the Tightrope Walkers from China.
For the first six days of the carnival, two members of the Acrobatic Troupe of Xinjiang China, Adili Wuxor and Abulaiti-Maijun, will perform stunts on a 60m-long tightrope, at least 20m off the ground. They hold several world records for tightrope-related stunts.
- See more from Straitstimes.
Sorry if the video is shaky cause too crowded and people have been bumping into me.
Video 1 - The tightrope walker trying to balance upside down on the rope.

Video 4 - Two performers performing at the same time, crossing over one another and dancing on the rope.

Without fail, every year, we sure to visit the River Hong Bao at Marina Bay FLoating Platform.
My favourite, of course must be the huge God of Fortune.
This year being Singapore 50th Anniversary, the theme is relive the past. There's a giant mural wall that illustrates Singapore skyline.
There's two huge peacocks decorating the seating areana. Really beautiful.
A familar person at one corner of the mural, that was Sir Stamford Raffles, Singapore's founder.
And of course the very popular and familar Merlion and the banner for SG 50 (Singapore jubilee year).
Difficult to take nice photos without so many heads blocking the lanterns, hahaha. It sure was crowded.

Firecrackers and Fireworks during the countdown of Chinese New Year 2015 in Chinatown Singapore. Video taken by my hubby on eve of Chinese New Year, I did not want to go down to Chinatown as it was supercrowded.
It is illegal to light up firecrackers in Singapore but only on certain occasions,like Chinese New Year and the mid autumn festival, firecrackers were lighted up in Chinatown, etc by professional.
