What’s On This February 2019 In Singapore

From Chinese New Year to Valentine's Day and beyond, there's a lot to love about this month!
30 January 2019

With Christmas and New Year’s Eve distant memories, it’s time for Asia’s biggest annual celebration: Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year.

CNY is when billions of people travel home for reunion dinners, people and places don their festive finery and, in Singapore, we enjoy two (count ’em, two!) public holidays, 5 and 6 February.

The Finder has rounded up lots of ways to celebrate the holiday (in the gallery, below), and even ways to avoid the hullabaloo, if you’re not into visiting family. Not sure what all the fuss is about? Read up on Lunar New Year in SG here.

Come 14 February, it’s Valentine’s Day – another annual holiday rooted in ancient traditions (in this case, Roman ones). Today, V-Day gets mixed reviews from romantic cynics. But, whether you’re looking for Valentine’s date ideas, or prefer to do something outside-the-chocolate-box on the 14th, we’ve got options.

Oh, and did we mention, February is full of foodie events, live performances and other ways to embrace “spring” in Singapore. Gong Xi Fa Cai!
