2011 Year of the Metal Rabbit

The year of the Rabbit has finally started. Last February 2, Angel and I attended the countdown in Quirino Grandstand. We initially plan to go to Binondo to just watch the famous dragon and lion dance and just have dinner, but then we were told that the dragon and lion dance will be at the countdown. We arrived a few minutes past 7pm and the program is already starting.

The stage is well lit with two dragon pillars at the right and left side. Colorful lights flashed with every performance. There are wide variety of performances, from students, school choirs, artist, dancers and the most waited dragon and lion dance.

 Just before the clock striked 12 midnight, the black sky is covered with colorful fireworks to celebrate the coming of the the Year of the Metal Rabbit.

However you want to say it, Happy Chinese New Year!
