Chinese New Year

On the way back home from a relative's place, we were passing by one of my Mum's favourite restaurants (serve good noodles) and we saw the lion dance troupe! And I just happened to have the camera on me ;)

There was a massive feast (for the Gods) and 2 pink lions dancing! (boy, they must earn a lot from people like my Mum).

One whole roasted pig also got. Its for the Hokkien new year (unfortunately, they celebrate a bit later than the rest of us, on the 9th day of CNY).

But best of all, is that they had (illegal) firecrackers! Not just the short one, but the massive long ones. And they had 10 of those!

firecrackers!

Haa haa! Gong Hei Fatt Choy! Love the bandung-coloured lion dances. I saw 2 pole-dancing lions this year. They pranced on the pole, lah, they didn't wrap their thighs suggestively around the poles. LOL.
