Though, I wouldn't recommend shooting outside, too humid for your camera and too hot for you and the fine dust might lower the resale value of your equipment. So if you go out, don't forget to take your dry cabinet with you to protect your equipment while you have a refreshment. Anyway, happy New Year!
    LOL. My camera gear have zero resale value so there is no point to protect it like those limited edition Leica.
    Taking photos of old and sick is not my interest.
    I eats, shoots & leaves

    Was that taken this afternoon?

    Northeasten monsoon surge came in from Borneo across the South China Sea. If you have been there earlier, you might have caught the shelf cloud of a massive squall line coming in from the south.

    Try going to Kuan Yin Temple at 11.50pm on Chinese New year eve and wait for 12 midnight.

    Be prepared to be jostled by a surging crowd. No camera photo taking allowed inside the temple hall. Only outside.

But I do see alot of Malay and Indian SINGAPOREAN out yesterday also how to tell if they are Singaporean can tell mah not only by thier smell but how they speak and act. :-)

    Aiyo.... I didnt go smell everyone on the streets la... And no... I didnt look into the mirror, i am kinda sick of seeing that familiar person in the mirror.. So many decades.

    even if its malays or indian or chinese - the way they dress, behave, they speak etc. u can tell whether they are singaporeans. Its quite obvious..

    Yeah I must agree there are alot of non Singaporean outside yesterday since it's the 1st of CNY so most companies are closed tfor holiday and where these employees goes to the famous places I was at Vivi City and I was shocked it's even more crowded than weekend.

    Normally East coast park is the place most non Chinese Singaporean goes during CNY I guess the rain make them to go to other places :-)

    anyways, Chinese New Year's supposed to be about welcoming people to your home and cleaning the slate for the coming year.

    don't ruin it with bitter/spiteful remarks

    yeah true dragon better... but let see how the year would turn out :-) I do remember my previous boss and mentor told me once (he's an old chap I think that time he was like in his 60's getting slower but his mind still very sharp. He told me "Your future is at your hands... its up to you how you would want to shape your future... dont let fate decide for you, you can change your future for the better if you really focus your mind to it"

    This morning weather is nice, I manage to get some photos at Garden by The Bay

    The KOI welcome me by forming a Chinese character 8 in water ( see picture )
