Every country around the world has its new year traditions. In Singapore, we celebrate New Year’s Eve the only way a metropolis like ours knows how to — by partying. Ditch making the new year’s resolutions you’re not going to keep, and dump the pretense that you’re ushering in 2020 anywhere else but the dancefloor.
