Travel: Lunar New Year in Kuala Lumpur

12:00:00 PM

Gong Xi Fa Cai or Happy Lunar New Year
Lunar New Year is mostly celebrated by countries with Chinese influence or as what I know, by Chinese people.
We had a good chance witnessing the celebration of Lunar New Year, the Chinese style, in Malaysia. Almost all establishments has the New Year decorations of temples, Cherry Blossoms, banners, goldfishes, and red lanterns on the street.
One thing that we were most excited was to witness a Lion dance or what they call wǔshī or 舞狮 (simplified Chinese) and 舞獅 (traditional Chinese) since this is mostly present in every Lunar New Year Celebration. Also, one more exciting reason are the way the dancers would stand in one or two columns. It was my first time to watch a Lion dance in person, so, it is one of the things I was looking forward.




Other than the Lion dances, one fun part was that, there were a lot of SALE in a lot of shops! So it is a good time for a shopping spree.






 


 









And of course, we didn't forget to eat some Chinese food although it wasn't really what you should eat on that holiday.
The important part is that the whole city is decorated with lanterns and other things related to the Lunar New Year.
