Firecrakers were ignited punctually at at the stroke of midnight at Eu Tong Sen Street in Chinatown. Because of high human congestion, wasn’t able to secure a good shooting spot. There’s a small scale fireworks after that but because of all the smoke from the firecrackers, doesn’t turn out too good. :(
A touching scene among the crowd. A raincoat wearing child is being lifted up by his father’s strong hands to get a better view. The innocent look on the child leaves an deep impression.
