"red lanterns"


Two days before chinese new year, festive red lanterns are seen hanging around chinatown.
The belfry seen in here is the other side of Binondo Church, which i've posted a couple of times already.
I've always fascinated in old churches, though i know so little about its details.
I'm hoping to catch traditional lion dances tomorrow, people in Red outifits, receiving 紅包 (red packets) from grannies and aunties and yes, extreme traffic in this area as we're also celebrating valentines day as well.

  1. Kung hei fat choi! I love the red lanterns...will have to check if I'd see them around here.

  2. One of the proposed themes for the april theme day is red. Very appropriate, although a bit late. Which year will it be in the chinese calendar?

  3. happy chinese new year and happy valentine's. with both this event happening this weekend, i'm sure red will be the dominant color.

    enjoy the weekend.

  4. Not hard to imagine some lion dances going on right there!

  5. Happy Lunar New Year! And Happy Valentine's too! :)
