Skywatch-Singapore River Hongbao 2009-God of Fortune and The Singapore Flyer

The Singapore Flyer in the background. It was just reopened on the first day of chinese new year after closing for more than a month due to a electrical fire which stranded more than 170 people. Now it is fixed with a back up winch system. Hope all will be fine now. Maybe the location of the God of Fortune will bless the flyer. :)

A short video of the flyer in the night.

That's a beautiful photo. The eye stands out nicely against the evening sky.

I hope you had a happy chinese new year, and got all your shopping completed.

恭喜恭喜!!

I headed to River Hong Bao on chu er, but after parking the car at the Singapore Flyer carpark and seeing the sun... we didn't even go in the end.
I guess River Ang Pow will be better to visit in the night :P

人日快了on Sunday!!
