Chinese New Year 2015

Happy Lunar New Year to all who celebrate! Most families in Singapore have a lot of eating, drinking, partying and visiting. Some choose to travel for a holiday over the long weekend. How did you spend yours?

Allow me to share mine, what I saw and ate in Singapore in the year of the Goat!
