As seen in pictures captured by CloudSpotting Singapore Facebook group members, Singaporeans woke up to a red sunrise that resembles the colour of angbaos (red packets) and CNY decorations.

Those who stayed along Singapore’s coast were lucky to see deep red skies as the sun rose above snoozing anchored ships.
