Chinese New Year continues – miniblog

So, what does one do on day three of CNY?

Go to the mall, apparently. I’ve never seen Gurney Plaza so packed.

And almost all the customers were Chinese – only saw one Malay, no Indians, and a few Caucasians.

Gurney Plaza was packed - you had to line up to ride the escalator on some floors

I also found a phone recharging service at the information desk on the ground floor. They will charge your phone for 30 minutes free in a little locker. Good for Blackberry’s, iPhones, HTC, Samsung, and perhaps others.

sorry – blurry

And when it was time to leave, the roads were jammed.

the carpark was full, so huge queues to get in, and jammed trying to get out

  1. was the picture of the escalator taken on that day? it was showing an indian family and a indian woman with her back to the camera. just curious why u said there were no indians that day. though i can understand you when u said not many other races were there. it is day 3 of chinese new year period and so understandable that the chinese will be out in force. and the other races will be wise to avoid these places.

    1. Oops – but of course I mentioned what I saw – when I took the photo I was concentrating on framing the photo before reaching the bottom of the escalator. But it is perfectly OK for anyone to be out and about – people here celebrate or at least honour everyone’s festivals, which is one of the nice things about this country.
