Lantern Festival



Tonight marked the Lantern Festival, and stupidly I went downstairs to watch the fireworks on the Singapore River without bringing my camera. But it was great stuff - rockets, maroons, that sort of thing. Lately there've been loads of firework displays on the river, which makes for a magnificent sight against the backdrop of the skyscrapers. (What if you were working late in one of those skyscrapers? Isn't it bizarre to look out and see a plume of coloured flame rising up?)

They've set up a huge 3939-ft. dragon lantern running alongside the bank of the river near Parliament House, and I did bring down my camera for this one.
