Malaysia is a good chunk ethnically Chinese and Chinese New Year is big deal. Luckily this year we got to celebrate with my parents who came out for two weeks.
We saw decor and lion dance, and lion dance, and lion dances.
|Beautiful CNY decor in Chinatown|
|Red lanterns everywhere|
|Kids celebrated CNY at school.|
|Some lion dance dancers waiting|
|If you think Pavillion does Christmas big, watch out, CNY is amazing!|
|Everyone gets into the festivities.|
|Lion Dance #10 of the 21 days.|
|Total tangent here but Ayam Goreng Spicy at McDonalds is AMAZING. FYI, order this if you go to McD in Malaysia.|

In fact it has now been three weeks and I just saw a lion dance yesterday, yes, yes, yes it is very cool but I find myself running away instead of towards it. It is very very very loud, a once a year thing, max not a 21 day cycle of cymbals. If you do ever get a chance to see Chinese Acrobatic Lion Dance, go for it. It is not to be missed.
