This past weekend was the celebration of the Chinese New Year in Singapore, with many shops and restaurants closing down from early Friday evening until Monday morning. It was very quiet at the malls, on the streets, at the corner cafes, and at the food hawker courts.
But today things seemed to get back to their normal bustling style, so we decided to head out to one of the malls we have not been to yet, the Funan Mall.
While we were wandering around, we heard the sound of drumbeats, so we naturally went looking to find what was going on. And the videos below show what we discovered.
I’m not really sure what was going on, but I think it may be known as the dragon and lion dance. Despite my lack of understanding, it was fun to watch, and it was nice that the performers brought their act to a mall, which is where there are usually lots of people.
