5Y1M 4Y4M 恭喜発財 Gong Xi Fa Cai

我祝福你  出入平安  四季平安





Wo Zhu Fu Ni! Si Ji Pin An! Chu Ru Pin An!

It's our 3rd Chinese New Year in Malaysia.

We have lots of festivals of all sorts of race and traditions here. As soon as Christmas day is over, all the displays at the shopping malls and music being played at the supermarkets are changed to CNY ones.

After more than 2 years staying here, I'm quite used to having all festivals. I even think I'm so lucky to be able to experience so many different traditions. We celebrate Christmas properly of course, then, on the new year's eve, I feel so 'end of year' after watching the famous annual Japanese New Year Eve music concert on TV, and wait for the midnight.

Today is Chinese New Year's eve. At midnight, we will see so many fireworks all over the place. In the last couple of days, Malaysian Chinese people's year-end feelings have really inspired me as well. I've also felt so excited about a new year arriving tonight.
