Chinese New Year decorations 2013


Singapore is gearing up for the Chinese New Year on 10th of February. This year it is the Year of the Snake.
According to Chinese astrology, the Year of the Snake person is a very smart person. They generally  think of clever schemes to make wealth in a cold calculating manner. The snake also represents people who are loners and use others to achieve their aims and goals. 
Chinatown once again is very crowded with temporary stalls set up selling decorations for the home as well as many food items for the feasting that will take place. Chinatown has two large snake decorations that are lit up at night.
Shopping centres also have extra stalls set up with gifts for family and friends. Decorations are every where from simple pots of Cumquat trees to more elaborate decorations.
Our apartment block has also being decorated with the taxi waiting room decorated and also pots of Celosias planted in the gardens.
