There were lanterns hanging from the ceiling inside The Central mall as well.
Huge crowds were gathering around the stage in front of The Central mall to watch the performers from China.
Saw a little blonde girl covering her ears in excruciation when the singing started. No disrespect to the singer, but you know how kids are. It was so funny I wish I had taken a shot. I guess it was just too loud and high pitched for her.
Earlier in the evening we walked to the end of the river approaching the bridge that links The Central to Clarke Quay and we saw an interesting Taiwan fair. People, mainly tourists and possibly Taiwanese people in Singapore who miss their authentic cuisine were queuing the crowding around to get tokens to buy the food from the little stalls. It was just too much of a mad crush and I don’t like eating while being jostled in a crowd in the Singapore heat. I must admit it was interesting and we had a huge whiff of the smelly tofu and boy was it pungent. I finally experienced how people who can’t stand the smell of durians must feel.
We first spotted an old fashioned ice cream van which sells blocks of walls ice cream which they either give you wrapped in a rainbow hued bread or 2 wafers. It is so good, and I should have this one day just to feature it.
Cute zodiac kid T shirts.
Standing and eating doesn’t look like much fun.
