Happy Chinese New Year from Singapore!

Posted on February 3, 2014 by

After a whirlwind trip to Papua New Guinea, I’m now back in Singapore! PNG was truly an amazing place and I can’t wait to share all my stories with you, but I’m equally excited to be home. It’s been two years since we last stepped foot on Singapore soil and boy is it good to be back!

This time, Alberto and I are here to spend the Lunar New Year with my family including my sister who’s bringing her one-year-old son from California for the first time. We’ll also be heading to Thailand for a short family vacation – and I’m leaving the laptop and camera behind! As family time is way too precious, I’ll be taking the next two weeks off work. Full-time travelers need a break too.

In the meantime, I’ve lined up lots of stories from Papua New Guinea, Nepal and Bhutan. I’ll also be writing more about my home country Singapore, especially its food and new attractions.

Regardless of whether you’ll be celebrating the lunar new year, here’s wishing all of you a prosperous and happy year ahead!

    Happy year of the horse. We also celebrated Chinese New Year here in our country by giving "ang pao" a small red envelope with money inside to our relatives and we eat sweet sticky rice. It is our family tradition although we are not purely Chinese.

    I love how intricate that decor's design is! When we went to Kuala Lumpur last January, Berjaya Times Square (a famous mall there) is full of Chinese New Year decors and it is a sight to see. Anyway, I hope you had a blast. :)
