There’s no hipster food bazaar, but Geylang Serai festive light-up 2021 still provides for a charming evening walk.
Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting is here. With that, Geylang Serai once again comes alive with dazzling decorations and geometric light-art.
It’s a poignant experience strolling under this year’s lights, to be honest. Regrettably, the illuminations and Ramadan bazaar were the main festive casualties last year when Singapore went into semi-lockdown. While the lights are back this year, there’s still no massive hipster food market and festive goods stalls. It’s just the lights and those only.
There’s solemn contemplation involved here; how the combined efforts of the whole world aren’t enough to put one virus in its place.
That said, I suppose there’s no reason to be too despondent. Anyhow, self-reflection is encouraged during Ramadan? I’m not Muslim, but I’d be thinking about how life would be, should be, down the road.
