    I'll suggest we swap mobile numbers by PM.
    And we can meet at "Pret-A-Manger" on the East side of street.

    A reminder that it is this Sunday.

    I posted this same announcement across several forums: APUG, RFF, FADU and some Flickr groups.

    There's from my side 3 coming, plus 3 or 4 from RFF.
    I would like to see some from this forum!

    Well, in the end one member from RFF came and joined myself and Noel's 2 friends. Here are some pics from CNY 2015.

    This is all from the parade I could see:

    I was more interested in the crowds:

    There were also plenty of stalls:

    Some were just going about their daily lives:

    We saw lots of cameras:

    These iphonographers were busy at it:

    And this was our group. Sorry for the sneaky from behind!

    Someone in the crowd complimented me for the OM and pointed to Vinh and said he was "hardcore". Here is Vinh in action with his Rolleiflex:

    At the end, it was nice to see some taking a different approach to a New Year.
    I hope she said "yes":

    Well, that was it!
    Thanks to Vinh, Noel, Jason and Carol for the great day.
