We have a long weekend break, with Thursday being a public holiday for the celebration of Prophet Mohammad's Birthday and Monday for Thaipusam. We took the opportunity to spend time in Melaka and enjoy the festive Chinese New Year decorations put up on the streets where my family lives.
There was even a launch for the lighting up of the Chinese New Year decorations on Jonker Walk. This photo showed the crowd and also the lanterns hung up for this year's celebration. It's really festive atmosphere to it. The organizer also held a street concert and we had a good time swaying to the music on the street.
Chinese New Year is about 2-week away. I will be posting more photos of preparation for Chinese New Year before the festival arrives. I am already in the festive mood.....Gong Xi...Gong Xi....Gong Xi Ni......
"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
