Arrow Chinese New Year Celebration at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, A toned down festive celebration

Today is Chinese New Year eve. Most Chinese families are going to 'welcome' God of Prosperity by 12 midnight. Gosh...this year Chinese New Year celebration look mundane to me. My city hall is not hanging "tang longs" or red lanterns at residential areas to mark the celebration - I guess they are cutting down the cost. My former Prime Minister even banned the burning of fireworks for all festive events. I really miss those light and sound burst.

I was searching high and low trying hard to find the real festivity around my area. So these are the pictures I captured. I went to Chinatown and also Thean Hou temple.

Picture 1 - Thean Hou temple (external structure)

Picture 2 - Red Lanterns

Picture 3 - Dragon's Wave (close-up shot of a porcelain scultured figurine)

Picture 4 - The Dragon's Beard

Picture 5 - Waxed Duck

Happy Chinese New Year & GONG XI FA CAI!!
