good things to do during chinese new year

Postby renter » Wed, 18 Jan 2006 5:21 pm

I have failed to convince my friends to travel overseas for these 4 days, and now i believe it is too late to plan, :mad::mad:
so most likely i will stay in SG for that period. but i don't intend to rot. :???: any nice things to do? :P

Something meaningful... volunteer work then, renter :)

making those lonely old folks/children/people happy during Chinese New Year... :) That'd be something :)

If you are into Chinese art, there are many Chinese cultural events coming up in lieu of CNY. Of particular interest is the cloud gate dance repertoire. It is choreagrahy, with lots of ballet-like kungfu movement based on Chinese calligraphy. You can click on the video icon to get a preview on the link below.

thanks to earthfriendly and madie.

the chinese art stuff really interests me. i'll have a look and see whether i can watch some of the performances.

madie, helping the oldie and the children is also a good idea. but mahjong isn't bad either. :D

I need to learn how to play mahjong... but anyways... :P

So, catch you later at tennis this evening! Will need some pointers for that and maybe also for next pool session! :lol:

Tennis indeed... need to get my Wilson Hammerhead first though :P

as for pool... I was quite surprised at my shots too! It was just ... amazing! I need more practise definitely and I'm sure without pointers, I would be a very very poor player :wink:
