Happy Lunar New Year…dragon style!

If you were not glued to the telly watching the epic marathon of a match between Nadal and Djokovic  you might be with the other half of Sydney who were out in force along George Street watching the Twilight Parade.

It has been a long time since I venture out to the city to see the Chinese New Year festivities. It was quite a sight seeing everyone lined up on the pavement, a forest of arms up in the air with their phone trying to get a second hand glimpse of the street.

I was a little tickled with the number of sponsorships, St George (wow dragon mascot for a bank! what fateful pairing!), Medibank and Ayam coconut milk meandered past the crowd in their respective floats.
