Beginning the Year of the Dragon with a Healthy Dose of Fireworks
Just a quickie video to start the week off rightor rather, year off. Today marks the first day of the Year of the Dragon; it's Chinese New Year and yep, we're still chilling in Singapore, where we managed to take in the holiday fireworks with a view from the top of the RItz-Carlton, Millennia.
Whether or not you're passing out red envelopes or dining on Yusheng "prosperity salad," we bet you appreciate a good fireworks display now and then. And it was good! The pyrotechnics in Singapore burst above the Marina, surrounded on all sides by tall buildings from which to view the spectacle. There's the Central Business District (CBD) to the north and west, a gaggle of high-rise hotels to the east (where we are) andwe briefly pan over to itthe triple towers of the Marina Bay Sands to the south.
Pardon the fact that there's no sound; it was all people talking and our camera clicking, so you aren't missing any of the big booms.
