Chinese New Year Bazaar 2015 in Chinatown Singapore - WW

After dinner last evening, my husband and I brought a couple of elderly neighbours to Chinatown to soak in the Lunar New Year festivities and snap photos of the pretty decorations of the Street Light-Up.

Many traditional goodies from cookies, decorative items, waxed meats and preserved fruits to potted plants and clothing were on sale. My neighbours bought some Chinese New Year delicacies.

As my family is still in mourning, we are not celebrating Chinese New Year this year.... but we bought 20 jars of cookies to distribute to some of the elderly residents in our neighbourhood.

These preserved fruits are a must-have in our Chinese New Year shopping due to their auspicious names and meanings.

There was a stall selling a modernised version of wooden clogs. Customers could request to custom make a pair of clogs.

Although it was a weekday night, there were lots of people shopping at the bazaar. We had a light supper before going home with or purchases.

    1. I was advised to lose some weight by my doctor yesterday. Have to follow her advice as extra weight causes my back to ache more :)

      The modernised wooden clogs have rubber soles, so there will be less noise when one walks in them. :D
