    More info:
    :: Lunar New Year Countdown
    Date : 21 January 2004
    Time : 9.30pm - 12.30am
    Venue : New Bridge Road (near Lucky Chinatown) & Kreta Ayer Square
    This is the first time a countdown Street Party is planned with MediaCorp Radio - Capital 95.8 FM and YES 93.3 FM. The radio station is lining up a series of on-site activities to usher in the Year of the Monkey. DJs from Capital 95.8 FM and YES 93.3 FM will be playing games and reporting live from Chinatown.

    There will also be song and dance segments performed by the MediaCorp artistes at the countdown. The Year of the Monkey will be ushered in, with spectacular pyrotechnics. The main highlight of the countdown will be the firing of real firecrackers at the stroke of midnight when Chinatown welcomes the Lunar New Year. Together with the colourful fireworks display, this marks a wonderful start for the new Lunar Year.

    Yes there will be. I checked again with STB. This time, the fireworks will last for a longer 6 minutes duration. I'm planning to be there, probably shooting from the Sheares bridge or from Marina Square. I haven't decided yet where to station myself.

    I hope you managed to catch it.

    Apologies to Garion. I couldn't climb down from the Sheares bridge fast enough so I stuck it out there.

    The view was good although certain shots seemed a little "off".

    I'd hope everyone managed to get some very good shots of the fireworks.

    Cheers.

    Happy Lunar New Year, everyone!
