[Melbourne 2008] Chinese New Year Celebration @ Melbourne Chinatown

Date visited: 10/2/2008

After visiting QV, we cross Lonsdale Street and found us on the Russell Street stretch of Melbourne Chinatown.

We were greeted with people mountain people sea (hordes and hordes of people). These suaku, er, people, have come to join in the Chinese New Year celebration in Melbourne Chinatown.

They were crowding around the stalls selling everything festive from new year decor to food to CD to clothes. I can't describe the ware or what food they're selling, I can't even get within 30m of those stalls. I took the photos from pavement using zoom.

Yikes, I forgot to hide people's faces. Hope they don't marah marah.

Chinese opera was also playing. Cool, this is fast becoming a dying art.


We escaped to Target Centre and met with many more lion dances along the way. Princess wanted to look see toys and hopefully we would find her a nicey looking WINTER coat (while still in early Spring XD).
