Most probably i'll be going to Guan Ying miao on CNY AFTER the fireworks.. hehe.. i'm gonna be there taking pics from the outside and when the crowds leaves, then go inside to put joss-stick..
i think it will be hard.. not just crowd... but also the air.. can make your eyes teary..
Went there after the cny eve fireworks & that was ard 1am. The crowd was still very heavily there.
not as smoky as compared to a few years ago.
the smoky atm was due to the incense from the joss sticks.
i remembered the very first time i went, the whole greenery in front of that HDB block facing the guan yin temple was full of joss stick that in the incense from those only filled up that whole area.
wah... that time. step into the crowd for a few minutes already started to tear.
can't even shoot properly.
but this year is so much better.
no tears from me.
heard this waterloo temple is very famous in Singapore...
my parents went at around 1am.. the crowd has lessen down a lot.
MAde it there guys! Thanks for the help and tips!

This reminds me somewhat of my childhood days... I put on my swimming goggles when my folks took out joss paper to burn...
In fact, I used to put some Optrex in the goggles, too!
i think the effort made to go dowm there and have the pic taken deserves the .
