Continuous Vibrant Festive Celebrations Into 2012.

Chinatown, swarmed with 'Dragons' together with a host of activities, was 'lighted' up last night and this signals the start of a fresh series in festivals 'Light Up' rituals in Singapore, to be followed by many more new and exciting ones to come for Year 2012. These 'Lighting Up' events are expected features in Singapore's style of welcoming and celebrating its numerous cultural and religious festivals with elaborate decorations and colourful lightings covering over large popular stretches of roads all over the island throughout the whole year.

Its during these periods of celebrations that Taxi Drivers enjoy a substantial increase in their take home pay. Huge crowds of people from all walks of life including foreign workers and the continuous influx of tourists from all over the world have contributed to making life slightly easier and more rewarding for all cabbies.

This Christmas and New Year have brought on unprecedented hugh gatherings everywhere, in shopping centres, food courts, Orchard Road, Resorts World Sentosa and especially at the Marina Bay area. Throngs of holiday makers celebrating and welcoming the New Year Countdown and the spectacular fireworks display have created such a fabulous and vibrant atmosphere and not only that, the excitement, the hectic activities of ushering in the Chinese Lunar New Year have already begun.

It is truly a 'Bonanza' period, together with the recent newly implemented Fare Hikes this time of year, albeit very hard and tedious work for all active Taxi Drivers.
