E: Chinatown Lanterns

IMG_9235

Here in Asia there are numerous ‘mooncake festivities’ that go around the indochina countries, one of them is the lighting of about 20,000 lanterns in Singapore’s Chinatown. I went here on the seventh and had a really nice time, the place really livens up after sunset. We grabbed dinner at a food court just outside the area and I got some really tasty seafood noodles for about two quid which were surprisingly filling.

The rest of the evening was spent devouring a 1 dollar (roughly 50p) ice cream, drinking some strawberry kiwi juice and walking around the night markets. As I’ve mentioned before the work load is a bit hectic. Especially trying to keep in line with the Asian mentality here. Although I’m desperate to be travelling, when there’s plenty to see in Singapore, doesn’t it make sense to actually experience the country you’re in? It makes running around between assignments and exams much less stressful. Why not save the travelling for when I’m actually free and will be able to do it properly? That’s how I see it at least.IMG_9233
