On the first day of the New Year…

Dinner, anyone?

I’ve had a somewhat atypical Chinese New Year so far. For one thing, our reunion dinner was at Gordon Grill at Goodwood Park Hotel, where the only yu (fish) consumed was in the complimentary salmon appetizer — no customary yu sheng in sight. Instead of a whomping nine-course Chinese dinner, we had a la carte steaks, sides and starters from the regular menu (yum!). Instead of having to rush through dinner in less than two hours so that the restaurant could seat the next serving of diners, we had a leisurely meal with impeccable service.

Hm. Maybe we should do this every year…

Anyway, here’s a roundup of some of the more typical festivities that went on in Singapore.

Welcome to the Year of the Dog!
