Night at the Chinatown

The mid-autumn festival was over around one and a half month ago. The streets of Chinatown were decorated with over 20,000 of lanterns with different shapes and sizes. Unfortunately I missed the chance to capture the wonderful events during the mid-autumn festival night at Chinatown due to tight and heavy school projects. But better than nothing, I still went to Chinatown a few days after the mid-autumn festival to capture the night at the Chinatown with some of the “leftover” mid-autumn festival feel. Of course, I brought along my NEX-6 and the SEL24F18Z and one friend visited together to Chinatown.

I really never visited to the Chinatown for a long time. There is a new built little tourist centre which was not exist during my last Chinatown tour.

I was reminded of one of the Chinese BBQ shop which my classmate brought me for supper previously and the foods are really delicious and worth the price. Hence I brought my friend to this Chinese BBQ shop for our dinner.

They are really delicious, and I can only use “awesome” to describe the taste of having the BBQ sticks with ice beer. After filled up our stomach, it is the time for us to continue the Chinatown trip.

In order to capture the great view of the “lanterns street”, we were heading to the flyover. There were bunch of lanterns at the entrance of the flyover which were designed by the public.
