To all Chinese readers and followers: Happy New Year / Selamat Tahun Baru Cina / Xin Nian Kuai Le! The photo above was taken in February 2012, during a day trip to Singapore. It is a photo of Singapore’s Chinatown, where Chinatown is just a cultural name for this place, since the majority population of this island-state is ethnic Chinese.
Chinese New Year is also one of the gazetted public holidays in Malaysia where the whole country will have a 2-days break. So, to all Malaysians, happy holidays!
