10 Singaporeans and how they celebrated Chinese New Year

TL;DR – Any different from yours?

Now that Chinese New Year is over, we can’t help but think about how exactly did we spend all that time? After all, it’s been half a month!

In case you’re wondering, we trawled Facebook (because these days anything’s worth mentioning has gotta be there) and picked out what some of our favourite Singaporeans have been doing over the past 2 weeks… and if it involves ban-luck or mahjong.

1) Lee Hsien Loong

The King of Social Media had dinner with his Teck Ghee residents,

and closed Chap Goh Mei at Chingay 2017.

2) Jamie Chua

Meanwhile, Singapore’s Queen of Instagram, otherwise known as @ec24m, ushered the new year with the God of Fortune in head-to-toe Gucci.

3) Fann Wong

Her son can not only say 新年快乐 (or happy new year) but it seems like he’s a budding pianist too.

4) Chan Chun Sing

The Labour Chief spent it with the workers of course.

At Senoko Energy and with the bus captains at SBS Transit (via Facebook).

5) Joseph Schooling

Our Olympic champion might not be in Singapore to stuff his face with bak kwa but guess who was at the Super Bowl?

Not too bad a tradeoff I guess.

6) Chee Soon Juan

The party did their Chinese New Year Walkabout at Bukit Batok and Marsiling.


7) Ng Chee Meng

The Minister for Education (Schools) wrote some Chinese calligraphy.

8) Zainal Bin Sapari

This Labour MP reminds us that part of the beauty of living in Singapore, is how CNY is not reserved just for the Chinese, neither is it just for family.

It is the season of giving after all.

9) Desmond Choo

Yup. Rain or shine indeed.

10) Kong Hee

The City Harvest Church pastor did a Mediacorp-esque video with his wife, Sun Ho.
