Gong Xi Fa Chai [Happy Chinese New Year]...

Folks, it is festive time again in Malaysia. This time it is the Chinese Lunar New Year. Probably it is only in Malaysia where you could find cultural/religious festival celebrated all throughout the year. Just a month ago it was Christmas and the mall was decorated with that Christmas themes. Before that it was the Moslem Eid Fitri. As usual with the Chinese New Year which fall on January 26 this year, the mall are going ga ga with Chinese New Year theme decoration. Malaysian are fortunate lots where one get to enjoy these festivals all the year around and this time it is the Chinese New year. We decide to visit the Pavilion and the KLCC malls and here are some images that has turn the mall into a riot of colors. Indeed a many splendour things.

Gong Xi Fa Chai to everyone from Asmah and Me in Ampang Jaya, Malaysia. May we all continue to prosper and enjoy life in this year of the Ox. Have a nice day.

Hi Pak Idrus,

Yes I have passed through both shopping complexes. Aren't the deco so beautiful? Of late I love Pavillion more somehow, perhaps it's not as over crowded/packed as KLCC.

Anyway hopped over to be connected & wish you happy CNY hols.

Salam Pak Idrus,

So nice to see you both in the spirit of the season! Pavilion was a bit too red for my liking. Sakit kepala dibuatnya. I work down the road, at Jalan Conlay.

Love your photos and your muhibbah posts! Your kind wishes are certainly appreciated!

Best Regards,

Covert_Operations'78, thanks for the visit and the good words on us and the posting. Indeed we are having a great time in our golden age.

We are all Malaysian and in it for the rest of our lives, so it would be wise that we realized this and enjoy each other culture. In a way it not only enriched our lives but contribute to making this country a better place to live and enjoy life.

Have a nice day.
