Every CNY, 56-year-old beauty advisor, Linda, creates a festive atmosphere for her neighbours by decorating their HDB common corridor at Bedok Reservoir Road.

Her annual efforts are not lost on her neighbours, as one of them, by the name of Nabilahmeowz shared with us some photos of this year’s decorations.

According to Nabilahmeowz, Linda has outdone herself this time round by putting up the most elaborate CNY decorations to date.

Just look at this, we would love to have her as our neighbour.

Linda told Mothership that she began decorating her common corridor about seven years ago because the atmosphere her decorations created brought cheer to her late father, who was visiting her at the time.

Since then, she said that she would put up decorations every CNY to bring joy to everyone around her.

Here are more pictures of Linda’s amazing effort this year.
