Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year, originally uploaded by G2clicks.

Per the lunar calendar, the year of the bunny is here. We had a good 5 day long weekend because the company gave an extra holiday on top of the holiday which fell on Thu & Fri. This plant is kept outside offices, hotels, apartments, homes, etc during this holiday where mandarin oranges are also given away to loved ones.

The sad part about being in Singapore is that there is no long holiday that people get. Compare that to Japan & Korea which have a 10 day golden week holiday. China had a nice 9 day break for this lunar new year.

In this stressful life in Singapore, we need more holidays, don't we?
