Quietly soaking in the festive decorations
In saner times, we would have organised a run with friends to view the decorations & festive goings-on in Chinatown, preferably with fireworks thrown in. Loving Husband & I decided to run this year on the morning of the 1st day of the Chinese New Year; we thought it safer as we might have the roads to ourselves. We had reports from friends who visited during the week that it was very quiet; still, it was odd to see the streets devoid of traffic, both vehicular & pedestrian.
One of the places which people were queuing up to enter at 8am was the Buddha Relic Temple, to pray for blessings & good fortune in the year ahead.
We had to take a we-fie with the God of Fortune at 老巴刹 (literally: Old Market) Telok Ayer Market, which also boasted a healthy number of diners: many cyclists post-ride, having their coffee al fresco.
