Chinese New Year Decorations for the Rabbit Year 2023

CNY decorations at Tekka Place, Little India

Last few weeks, when Chinese New Year was around the corner, I could see many decorations everywhere in Singapore. According to the Chinese calendar, this Lunar New Year is Rabbit’s year. Therefore, there are a lot of decorations that feature rabbits. During the Chinese New Year, the decorations and ornaments feature the colour red which is a sign of wealth, prosperity, and good luck. Therefore, most CNY decors are in red making people happy and cheerful.

After sharing photos of the Pongal Day Festival, here are some pictures I captured during my visits here and there during the last week. Enjoy and Happy Chinese New Year!

This Week’s Food Adventure

After sharing our experience with Indian food last week during Pongal Festival, I thought I should share some interesting food we try. Again, here is another Indian food that we enjoyed last week. This day too we had an evening snack at Maduraโ€™s Vilas, located in Little India.

  1. I hope there is something like Karma.
    I did – after checking if someone is behind me – break to full stop often on my way to work to not kill a rabbit ๐Ÿ™‚
    Great decorations. Sadly we do not celebrate Chinese New Year here, but I was lucky to visit it in Australia.

  2. Good morning, Happy Chinese New Year. I really enjoyed seeing all the lovely decorations for new year, and your food always looks delicious! Happy T Day Amelia

  3. Loved seeing the decorations and Indian food from your week. I painted a rabbit for Lunar New Year but that is it. I would have loved to eat Asian food to celebrate if I had thought about it at the time.
    I see that you live in Singapore. When I started painting buildings a year or so ago, I followed a Sinagpore artist, Alice Lim, and she posted lots of buildings from Singapore. I started painting them and posting them on my Instagram page. So much lovely architecture in your country! I will have to look up Little India as I would love to see pictures.
    Happy Tea Day,

    1. Thanks for this comment.I checked Alice Lim’s Instagram page and it is full of beautiful paintings. So true,there are beautiful buildings in Singapore with lovely architecture.I always like to watch those architectural features when I am traveling here and there. Little India is another place worth visiting.
      Thanks for the visit and a comment.Have a great day!

  4. Happy Chinese New Year!
    Yes, we do celebrate it here since California has a big Asian-American population. There is a parade in San Francisco, but even in my city – which is much smaller than SF – there are celebrations. Not as big as in Singapore, of course. I like the red lanterns in your pictures.

  5. Wow, such beautiful Chinese New Year decorations and a wonderful way to celebrate ๐Ÿ˜Š. Happy T Day wishes! Hugs Jo x

  6. This was a great post. Thank you for sharing the wonderful photos of celebrations of the Chinese New Year. I wasn’t aware of any celebrations here, but I know they have them. I even issued a scrapbook challenge around the Chinese New Year rabbit. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy
    t day.

  7. I apologize for the late visit. I was offline due to my internet and phone being out due to high winds. It was great to see real CNY celebrations. I am a HUGE fan of CNY, as you might be able to tell. I make a CNY spread in one of my altered books each year. I am saving the Lantern Festival until Feb. 5, but I appreciated seeing your photos. Each of the rabbits is adorable and the various places you visited to share them with us.

    Still love that frothy tea you shared for T this week, dear Amila. Thanks for linking to T Tuesday.
