Look at this lovely decor at one of the malls in the Klang Valley, the Curve. I always lepak (hang out) at the Curve every Saturday whilst waiting for my daughter finish her French class..You will never fail to find me at Borders between 1.30 to 4 pm!
Cherry blossoms in Malaysia? This reminds me of one of my favourite spots at Nottingham University - the Cherry Tree Hill. It's so beautiful in Spring but it also meant that the exam was also quite near..sigh...! I'll try to post one of the pics which I have in one of my boxes one of these days.
The decor is for the coming festive season celebrated by the Chinese community - the New Year i.e. the first day of the first lunar month of the Chinese calendar which falls on the 18th of February this year (which is also known as the Spring Festival) and will end 15 days later (i.e Chap Goh Meh).
During this time of the year, Malaysians, like during the Eid, Deepavali and Christmas, take time off to visit friends relatives etc and eat a lot of mandarin oranges, which is the auspicious fruits during New Year! I cant wait to visit some of my chinese friends over the new year! One thing which I will miss now is the sound of firecrackers over the period of celebration as it has been banned here!
Really need a short break.....and looking forward for the festive season hols!
