The Chinese New Year is fast approaching and the streets of Chinatown are teeming with shoppers, tourist and photographers alike, soaking in the festive atmosphere. I ususally do not feel comfortable in crowded areas, especially around this time of the year in this part of Chinatown, but it was still manageable, as it is still quite a couple of days before the Lunar New Year. I actually went there twice with 2 friends on 27th(Sun with Rachel) and 29th(Tue with Trevor) to have dinner at the abundant mouth watering and gastronomically savoury delights at the various roadside stalls, eateries and restaurants. Of course being photo hobbyists, we did go there to take some pictures of the biggest yearly event in Chinatown, which is the Chinese Lunar New Year. Chinatown is a place with good food to eat and great photo subjects to take, beautifully blended in a marriage of contrasting old world charms and modern convenience and technologies. More pictures can be viewed on this walkabout by fellow blogger Rachel, who has some great pictures of her own here.
