Giant Snake of Light

What seems like ages ago (which was, in face, a decade ago) I was in Singapore. What I remember most from that country-city were the smells and tastes of all kinds of food – Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian, etc etc – I tasted there. I just briefly visited the China Town, though, an have only a waning memory of the crowded street and all the novelty of this style of life assosiated with the nation I wasn’t familiar with.

And now, the Chinatown in Singapore has this new decoration that is an attractive representation of one of the most important symbols in the Chinese culture – a giant snake Lantern Sculpture adorns the Chinatown, stretching from the junction of Upper Cross Street and South Bridge Road to Sago Street.

The installation is made from 850 yellow sky lanterns and is 300m long.
