You know Chinese New Year is here when you walk down Albert Mall and you see stalls and stalls selling a whole range of real and artificial plants, especially annuals e.g. Celosia, Marigold, to usher in the lunar new year. So I took the opportunity to take some photos when the crowd was still thin in the early hours of the day.
This was the only time when I feel that the scale of sales and range of plants here in Singapore are almost like Chiang Mai's flower markets.
When I walked back to the place for lunch, it was thronging with people and it was hard to browse through the stalls, much less take photos.
