Second day of Chinese New Year: Sentosa Flowers!

Anya and I went to Sentosa with my aunt on the second day of CNY to look at flowers. She got to Vivocity before us and was quite taken aback by the number of people taking the Sentosa Express so we decided to walk over on the new Sentosa Boardwalk instead. We didn’t have to walk very much since there are travellators that lead all the way to Sentosa. Entrance to Sentosa was by EZLink card so it was quite convenient (except that my NETS FlashPay was not considered an EZLink card).

It wasn’t too crowded when we got there but by the time we were ready to leave, it was pretty packed. And it was HOT! When we took the Sentosa Express back to Vivocity, there were HORDES of people waiting to take the Sentosa Express into Sentosa and many more coming up on the escalator! So scary! I’m glad we went there early!

First day of Chinese New Year!

The first day of CNY was spent visiting my relatives in the morning, then Adrian’s dad’s side in the afternoon and Adrian’s mum’s side in the evening. Anya and I had matching outfits which were bought from different shops. Adrian tried his very best to blend in with us. ;) There was a lot of eating involved. Anya absolutely refused to eat any 发菜 because she really thinks it’s hair. It was quite hilarious. Anya got to meet up with her distant cousins (some of whom she only meets once a year) and had a great time playing with them.
