When Mr Pang Wei Ling (centre) first started his household decorations 13 years ago, they consisted of simple items like wall hangings and paper couplets. Today, the humble project has tripled in cost to about $300 and expanded into a massive array of ornaments and displays, stretching about 30 metres from the Pang's family door to the lift landing. Mr Pang, who spent about 20 hours putting up the decorations in a spread of two days, said that he believes the decorations have helped to strengthen relations between themselves and their Malay and Filipino neighbours that do not celebrate Chinese New Year, by spreading the festive moods closer to their doors as well. -- ST PHOTO: DESMOND LIM
