Chinese new year market @ Chinatown

Sesame dumplings @ Chinatown
Many asians across the world will be celebrating the 1st day of Spring (23rd Jan) or Lunar new year in a few weeks time. We also welcome the year of the dragon according to the chinese zodiac. These sketches were done 2 weeks ago at Chinatown with a few Singapore urbansketchers and I was fascinated by the myriads of decorations being sold at the market. Pineapples made of paper are popular decorations as pineapples in mandarin sounds like prosperity. Let me take this opportunity to wish everyone a prosperous new year ahead too!
