Happy Chinese New Year from Singapore! It's totally different celebrating this holiday in Asia vs. the US. At home, we don't get two days off from school that's for sure! (Although everyone at UConn has had more than enough days off this semester.) Despite popular belief, there is really nothing going on in Chinatown on the eve of Chinese New Year. Marina Bay is where it's at. We saw the most spectacular fireworks at midnight against the best backdrop ever. Apparently, the fireworks show is repeated every night for the next few days so I'm sure we'll be back sometime soon!
Wishing you all a happy and prosperous new year!
