They should issue infrared glasses...

Okay, I'm a little late with pictures of the Sydney Chinese New Year parade, as it took place at least a week ago. But I wasn't sure if I wanted to show my blurry, dark photos. You see, from our vantage point (in front of World Square), the whole parade was dark and blurry.

The parade was billed as 'twilight', which meant it had limpid teenage vampires (not really). But it did showcase the lit up costumes and floats. Though I didn't realise that the weedy sea dragon (1st pic in 2nd row, above) was part of the Chinese zodiac...

Click on the montage above to see the pics more clearly - or should that be 'more blurry'...?

And if you're interested in food (as this site sometimes purports to be about food), we had a quick bite beforehand at Super Meal Chinese Restaurant in Goulburn St. Dishes are below ($14 and $13 approx.), and they were yummy.


  1. It's hard to take pics in the dark isn't it! I always struggle. That pig's blood dish looks interesting, how did it taste?

  2. Hi Lorraine - pig's blood always smells off and tastes off, but I like it. This one was a bit spicy, with lots of chilli in it.
