It is Chinese New Year and I'm on a holiday in Singapore. The major ethnic population of the country is gearing up to celebrate their new year in a exuberant way. Hanging lanterns, beautiful Chinese couplets, placards displaying the good luck of the year in public places repeatedly reminded us to visit Chinatown. Also a casual conversation about the same with a graceful old Chinese taxi driver raised my eagerness to roam the Chinese streets. The next day guided by city maps we took MRT train service to Chinatown. Reaching the station we started walking down the street towards Chinatown. Red lanterns everywhere invited us inside the charm streets. Buildings, shops, hawker stalls, temple along with people carried us to China. Beautiful wall hangings, decorations, lanterns painted the entire region in bold red color tinged with sizzling gold.
