Chinese New Year 2016 Celebration
Come & Celebrate Chinese New Year 2016 in Fu Lu Shou Complex
The Spring Festival or the Chinese New Year is one of the biggest holiday season in Singapore. This year is the Monkey Year, which is the ninth animal of the 12. The animal comes time and again in a 12-year Chinese Zodiac Cycle. So, after every 12 years, Chinese will have a Monkey Year. Impressive fireworks, illuminated streets, family reunions, New Year Parades on the Chinese streets, cultural extravaganza and a lot more are included to mark their biggest festival.
That time of the year has come again when people take off from their professional lives and visit families and relatives only to exchange a few oranges as a way to wish A Happy New Year! On the night of New Year’s Eve, adults hand over red envelopes containing money to children as a New Year gift.
If you are holidaying in this part of the city, do not miss to plan a trip at this complex because you can take away perfect souvenirs back home from here. Also, the other retail shops in this mall sell arts of handicraft, antiques, Fengshui, dry ingredients, gift shop and much more.
At Fu Lu Shou Complex, the CNY month was all about celebrating this Year of Monkey. The entire complex was swept in red color as it is regarded as the most auspicious color – red lanterns, red décor, red lighting, and, of course, cute little monkeys were placed too. So, practically, everything was painted red during the month-long carnival.
The word Fu Lu Shou has its origin in Tao that correlates to good fortune, prosperity and long-lasting. So what better way you can really think of welcoming your New Year than shopping in this complex? Reaching here is very simple.
