When I went to Chinatown last weekend for the Chinese New Year Light Up, I thought it is just a ceremony to switch on the lights. I did not know there were so many performances. Pity there were such a big crowd that I could not reach the front of the stage.
This is the nearest I could get and with the zoom feature in my camera, I managed to capture a short video of the performance by Melbourne. It is fantastic and they are so good balancing on or in the huge ball.

I am glad I was there last weekend. First time I saw so many lion dancers. There were 138 lion dancers altogether.
The best and more experienced lion dancers get to perform on stage. I was not at the front of the stage cause there were so many people over there. I am not one who like to caught in the front or middle of a crowd..lol.
I was at further end of the back of the stage.

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.
Lion Dancers getting ready for the light up.
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.
