Hello Again, Singapore

Tiong Bahru Market

I’m back in Singapore so I set out on foot today to see what’s happening around the neighborhood. As usual, the Tiong Bahru market was pulsing with its lively shops and down-to-earth, community vibe. Lucky pineapples were hanging everywhere. It’s almost Chinese New Year, the year of the snake. Festivities kick off on Friday, followed by the holiday weekend in February. In Chinatown color is blooming all around — on the street, above the street, in the tiniest details. There are people coming and going, shopping for flowers and lucky charms in a buzz of preparation. And there’s meat! Walls of meat. Rather peculiar, but surely part of the celebration.

I hope you enjoy these colorful scenes of daily life around my share of the Lion City.
