Traditional Chinese Red

Over the weekend I managed to sort through more of my recent travel photos.
 The set above were taken in Singapore Chinatown.
I think they're the perfect images for today, as billions of Chinese people
around the world are celebrating the Chinese Lunar New Year all this week!

Traditionally, many people will be wearing red clothing during the festive celebrations.
Red is a very important color in Chinese culture; symbolizing prosperity, 
good fortune and luck! Perhaps I should wear something red too, cos' I'll be facing the 
angry boss yet again this week! errr...I may need all the lucks! {refer to my previous post]

To those who are welcoming the year of the dragon 2012,
Happy Chinese Lunar New Year!
~XOXO*

Forgive me for correcting you, Lenore Nevermore, but 2012 is actually the Year of the Dell Rat! :) I changed my comments setting to pop-up and one of my followers who had been having problems leaving comments was able to do so. Thanks for the helpful advice, dear friend! :)
