Chinese New Year VS St Kilda festival

Gong xi Gong xi
.. Happy Chinese New Year all!
Welcome to the year of the Rats =)

No special celebration this year and no angpao since I'm still stuck in Melbourne waiting for my TR (Temporary Residence) without my loved ones. Anyway here are some of the photos I took around the CBD/chinatown. From what I saw, there are lots of lion dance (barongsai) in every corner of CBD with only two dragons (which I think looks more like a worm than dragon, coz it was long but so thin) -_-" Sadly I couldn't get a snap due to people's head and my tiny (read: not tall enough) figures.

The lion dance

Little chinese drummer boys and girls

On the other side of the town there was another celebration. St Kilda Festival.
Nothing much to be said, just typical street festival; bunch of Aussies with so-called-cultural bands, dance, and food stalls. Eeek... no beer allowed

Hell yeah babe, it's alcohol free. Wondering why I still saw people 'drunk slash high' on the grass floor

Chips, hot dogs, and donuts. 'nuf said!

Strawberry + marshmallow on a stick dipped in chocolate. yummm. Orgasm? not really
