Not being privy to this information beforehand, we booked our Recess Week travel plans around being in Singapore for New Year’s Eve, and not for any other time. As such, I missed the giant parade and other festivities. New Year’s Eve was fun, but not as lively as I expected. There was a giant stage, with lots going on, but it was all in Chinese and the audience didn’t really feel into it. There were fireworks, but they were minimal as they were set off in the middle of Chinatown with people everywhere beneath them. There were so many people selling food, toys, decorations, tiger paraphernalia, etc… Don’t get me wrong, there was a definite atmosphere that was cool to be a part of, it just wasn’t what I expected. That being said- I took lots of pictures, so this is a rare visual entry!
