About 200 grassroot leaders and residents of Mountbatten gathered at Katong Community Centre for a Chinese New Year dinner. All the grassroot leaders are volunteers and to reward them for their hard work during the year, the adviser hosted the dinner for them.
The dinner was not free for grassroots leaders, they paid a nominal S$5 while their spouses and residents paid S$20 per person. Everyone was encouraged to come in Chinese New Year attire. Many were dressed in red including yours truly. hehe.....
A buffet dinner was served and it tasted awful. Before dinner, there was a tossing of yu sheng (a colourful Chinese-style raw fish salad).
Singapore is a multi-racial society, therefore many Indian and Malay friends join us for this Chinese New Year dinner. They had fun participating in the tossing of yu sheng too.
Entertainment was provided by local and foreign artistes. There were singing performances and an acrobatic show. The little Chinese girl's body was so flexible that she could contort it into different positions without much effort.
This little gal's body is so flexible! 小姑娘的软骨功好棒哦！
I was surprised that during this 2-week Chinese New Year period, many China nationals and Malaysians come over to perform. I wonder if they have permits to do so? They are raking in big bucks as there are many organisations and companies celebrating Chinese New Year every night.
