Wish my readers a Happy & Prosperous Chinese New Year (CNY).
CNY is the biggest festival on the Chinese calendar and is celebrated by Chinese all over the world. Before CNY the Chinatown areas will be full of temporary street stalls that sell all sorts of goodies and decorations for the new year. The atmosphere is normally very celebratory and the streets are choke-a-block with shoppers. I went to Chinatown to try taking some photos this year but was disappointed with the lights. I thought this photo from a couple of years back was more fun.
