Noodle or Prosperity Toss. Lo Hei

Singapore, Lions and Lanterns

Saturday 10am

The morning of the last day of Chinese New Year.

Two lions accompanied by loud drumming approach our residences attracted by the green offering hung over the door . This is the beginning of a really fun morning organised by the management including a Lion Dance and the Chinese ceremony of 'Tossing the Noodles'.

Although I've seen this group of dancers performing before, today was really lovely because it was so personal nod not just a 'performance'. The Lions really interacted with the children which was great.

After they had done their bit in the entrance and had chewed up grass and oranges they made their exit backwards to take out the old year (I think!) then returned to visit the 7th floor where the swimming pool is situated. They then fooled about, drinking the water and then actually walking across and played with the children. (See movie)
