It is so crowded in chinatown Singapore. Seems like a lot of people busy shopping for the coming Chinese New Year.

Chinese New Year will be coming soon. In celebrating the grand festival, there's a street light up in Chinatown. This year chinese new year will be from 3rd February 2011 to 17th February 2011 but the official public holiday is only on 3rd and 4th February.

I was there during the official light up on 15th January 2011, the light up will be on for about a month in Chinatown.

Finally the lights are up and it will be lighted till mid february 2011.

More videos and photos coming up in later posts. Hopefully I can load some long video in blogger. Sometimes it seems like it takes forever to load a one minute short video.
