Chinese New Year in Melaka

Today is Chinese New Year eve. Chinese around the world would be travelling home to join their families for reunion dinners. We got home yesterday and my hometown is beautifully decorated with lanterns and red decorations reflecting a merry celebration of this auspicious occasion.

Jalan Kubu is beautifully decorated with lanterns and a big lion in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration. This photo was taken last night when there is lesser crowd. Tonight, this street (which I near to the famous pedestrian mall, Jonker Walk) will see a huge crowd as people go to the temple at the struck of midnite to pray for a prosperous new year and there would usually be a countdown at the stage area of Jonker Walk.

Wishing all of you a joyful celebration with family and friends!! I am off to help mom in preparing for tonite's reunion dinner!

Happy Chinese New Year and Happy Valentine's Day!

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
