Neighbourhood CNY Celebration

We were just about to go out for dinner when my father called to say the neighbourhood CNY celebration was on that evening.

Contemplated for a while whether to go or not, then decided to just drop by for a while. (to get some free food. he hee) At the very last moment, I decided to grab my camera. I'm glad I did! Turned out to be a bigger celebration than expected.

First thing that greeted us were kids going on pony rides. I asked Elyssa whether she wanted to try and was surprised when she said yes. (she has been a bit of a scaredy-cat lately). I enquired about the price and was free!!!

And off they went!

We met my bro and family there too. When Justin saw Elyssa queuing up for the pony ride, he wanted to join as well.

After the pony ride, we had our dinner while being entertained by live singing on stage. Then it was time for the lion dance.

Lion Dance on Stilts

One of the better ones I've seen. They made jumping around on stilts seem so easy!


After the acrobatic performance from the purple lion, these 2 "playful" orange lions came out. They pranced about on the ground then went around to distribute mandarin oranges. Elyssa got scared when the lion gave her an orange ;)

Next was the dragon dance performance

I was really excited when they announced that the Mask Changing Performance was up next. It's something I've heard about but have never seen.

It started to rain a little so we left after that. It was another unplanned CNY event that we were lucky not to miss.
