Chinese New Year Mood Around Chinatown

Chinese New Year is just round the corner to welcome the Year of the Golden Rat. I went out and about to document the mood leading up to the New Year. 

Chinatown in Singapore is extremely colourful at this time of the year, especially at night. As usual, the place is always crowded. There was so much going on.

I conducted a few night photography workshops in the area during that week. This is the best time for every participants to have a chance to put that street and night photography skills into practice.
