Happy Western New Year (?), that is.... Chinese New Year is approaching on January 23.... Contrary to our normal routine for New Years Eve, as in, watch the ball drop in NYC and then turn in, we actually went out to view the fireworks here. A group of us rode bikes to a park across the river from downtown Singapore, and enjoyed a spectacular view of the show, with the lights framed by the large ferris wheel and Marina Bay Sands, that dominate the skyline. We heard that the fireworks display for Chinese New Year will be much longer.... stay tuned!
