Chinese New Year at Universal Studios Singapore

This year’s Chinese New Year’s decorations outside the entrance of Universal Studios Singapore (USS) seem to be the usual row of “kum” (i.e. miniature mandarin orange) trees. Here are 2 of them…

The only Chinese New Year (CNY) decorations inside USS can be found near the entrance. Perhaps it’s because the CNY deco doesn’t really fit in with the various themed zones in the park.

Something new introduced this year for CNY is that the first 5000 visitors to the park daily from 9th to 16th Feb will receive Universal Studios Singapore Hong Baos and stand to enjoy free Annual and Day Passes, Universal Express, exclusive discounts and more!  Each visitor will receive one Hong Bao immediately after going through the turnstiles at the entrance (while stocks last). Unfortunately, what my hubby and I found inside our hong baos didn’t quite interest us so we might try again on another day… (maybe)… LOL…

I was looking around for the character mascots and most of them were in their usual outfits. Only the woodpeckers were all dressed up for CNY.

Here’s Winnie in a cheongsam and matching shoes.

Woody looked different in his traditional chinese costume.

Saw this Kungfu Panda figurine waterbottle next to some firecracker deco and couldn’t help snapping a picture of it since the combination of both brings out the festive mood! (^o^)

If you want to have a CNY meal at the park, Hollywood China Bistro has some special CNY set menus and you can get more details about them in my previous post.

To those visiting the park during CNY, hope you’ll find something good inside your USS hong baos!  Happy Chinese New Year!!  🙂
