My World-Singapore River Hongbao 2009 - Chinese Dolls

I am still posting photos taken during the Singapore River Hongbao Show 2009, the event is so huge and there are so many beautiful dolls that are so cute and pretty.

This chinese doll dressed up like an Empress Dowager.
I like the centre doll, looked so pretty. She will be in my profile in the meantime.
Each doll has a legend or story behind them. It will take me many moons to tell all the stories...lol.

Just a short video to show the surrounding area near the chinese dolls.
