Chinese New Year

Posted by on May 13, 2011

Conveniently, for it has a sizable Chinese population, I was in Penang just at the end of Chinese New Year.  Kek Lok temple, in particular, impressed me by being more heavily decorated than anything else I can recall since last year’s New Year in Chengdu.  Though I arrived too close to closing time to be able to check out the whole temple, I still managed to take more pictures and see more red lanterns than I could shake a (joss) stick at.
