Chinatown Stroll

My husband and I went with his brother and his brother’s wife to The Loft on Smith Street for coffee and to Tiong Bahru Boneless Chicken Rice, also on Smith Street, for lunch. We also strolled around the area a little.

All the stalls are selling red and gold things with a rooster theme, since fairly soon Singapore will be celebrating the start of the Year of the Rooster.

These probably aren’t Chinese New Year decorations. They’re the “double happiness” character used for weddings.

I don’t have any photos of the rooster lanterns on New Bridge Road. The day was a bit rainy!
