Photos From Chinese New Year

Hello again!!!

Here is my post of those photos I took during my Chinese New Year break. This is 'cow' year for Chinese religion. Well some may ask why is that cow? Actually is just like western horoscope. But Chinese is counted by years. Means that every year is different sign instead of month counting like horoscope.

Okay, I will introduce you all to these photos that I've taken on the trip when I visited several places in Malaysia.

Big Big Lantern Decoration

This photo has been taken at 'Tian Hou Gong' in Kuala Lumpur. Its a 3 storey high craftwork of 12 sign of Chinese. You can see the top of it is the cow which represent this is the year of cow. While other animals if drawn at the picture around the pillar.

My Red Packet

This is another photo I captured. 'Ang Pow' or direct translated 'Red Pocket' which contains money will be given out by married couple to the children. There will be money placed inside and the amount is not nessecery to be very big ... of course the bigger the happier from children hehe...

Plum Flower Decoration

Plum Flower is represented Spring in Chinese. The begin of Spring means it is the begin of new year. Chinese might prefer Plum Flower as their decoration during Chinese New Year. For me, it is quite beautiful. But most of them are artificial flower...

Some sour stuff

This is chinese lime. Normally, it is super-duper sour and no one going to eat it... What to do with this little plant? Decoration. The meaning of this lime is luck. They believe to bring luck to the whole new year by placing it during the Chinese New Year. Normally these lime plant will sell quite expensive during peak season.

Amitabha, God Bless You

This is another photo taken at a chinese temple. People queue up to get blessed from these monks to change their luck and fate for the whole new year. Whether it is real or not... No one can tells but at least people believe it.

What Should I Do For This Whole New Year?

This is a photo of a mother reading the 'oracle' note when she get from the temple. This should tell her in particular for what to do and not to do. Hope this note will help her so much because She seems to have a good family there.

Famous Decoration of Chinese

This is the last photo which I like the most. The shoot of lantern decoration which they decorate during the Chinese New Year in 'Tian Hou Gong'. If you plan to visit there during the great season, I bet you will find out how extremely they hanged the lantern... Even on some place that we can't figure out how they going to hang there.
