Dazzling peacocks and a spectacular tunnel of lights at Little India Deepavali Light-Up 2019.
Two things about this year’s Little India
Goodness, I didn’t know the celebration for this year’s Festival of Lights started on Sep 8! I was so caught up with other things, I completely missed news coverage of the opening ceremony.
It looks and feels grander than ever! I can’t be completely sure about this, as I can’t find any written information online, but the lights seem to extend further up Serangoon Road this time. Viewed at the right spot, i.e., in the middle of a crossing, it’s like an ethereal tunnel of lights that goes on forever.
The Welcome Mascots
The stately “welcome mascots” at the junction of Serangoon Road and Bukit Timah Road have been changed. They are still peacocks, but they now come with animated feathers and quite the princely stare.
Aren’t these new Little India peacocks lovely?
