Curtains up on River Hongbao
Lee Kuan Yew celebrates Chinese New Year. Today:
Thousands ushered in the Year of the Rabbit at the River Hongbao show at Marina Bay last night.
Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew officiated at the opening of the annual event, which was first staged 25 years ago.
This year, the event promises to be even bigger than before, with performers from Nanjing, Guangdong and Taiwan.
Mr Lee, surrounded by children dressed in tiger and bunny costumes (picture), watched a performance of the Singapore Chinese Orchestra, and later sat down to a dinner with the event organisers.
