Happy Chinese New Year 2024 everyone! May the new dragon year be full of vigour, prosperity, and wealth for you!
Like last year, I’ll bai nian with everyone using River Hongbao 2024 pics. I think this is appropriate for this year’s show is truly a spectacular festive feast for the eyes. I’m, of course, referring to the super-long golden dragon and the 18-metre God of Wealth Caishen statue at the Supertree Grove.
The smaller lantern showpieces are equally enjoyable. Like previous editions, there’s an equal mix of festive ones as well as those that celebrate Singapore culture, such as our love for kopi and durians.
There are also five mini Caishen lanterns right beside the food tent—the Wǔlù Cáishén (五路财神) or “Gods of Wealth of the Five Directions.” I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a display locally and it was a treat for the mythology fan in me. And seriously very good for huat!
All loved the mini Caishen lanterns. Some visitors, erm, look as if they wanted to hug the lanterns for selfies. 😛
