From the lift lobby till all across the void deck, the splashes of red and gold certainly bring the neighbourhood to life.

Blk 219 Bishan residents contribute CNY ornaments collectively

As we all know, CNY is all about giving well wishes and forging vitality, health and happiness.

For this one block at Bishan, residents have taken an extra step in wishing all their neighbours a prosperous Lunar New Year.

With members of 24 different households coming together, residents decked the halls of their lift lobby with bright CNY lanterns.

They even added an extra flowery touch — peach blossoms intertwined around some pipes to make the space look more ethereal.

Atop the letterboxes stand 2 golden tiger ornaments, bringing a slightly regal feel to the atmosphere.

Of course, hanging the decor from hard-to-reach places wasn’t a one-man job. Residents helped each other, with some holding the ladders still while others climbed and decorated.

With plenty of pineapple ornaments adorning the walkways, this Bishan block’s festive mood is definitely palpable.

Anyone visiting relatives in this area should consider stopping by Blk 219 just to snap some CNY OOTDs.

Decorations uplift residents’ spirits for CNY

Mr Tan, one of the residents, told MS News that they put up these decorations in hopes of uplifting their neighbours’ spirits.

Residents from neighbouring blocks and even those taking a walk to Bishan Park can pass by the elaborate setup and join in the cheer too.
