Colours of Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year celebration this year is a very close knit family time.

Offering of Light.


Visited the mall to look at the decorations.


Went to FGS Dong Zen Temple in Jenjarom.


Red lanterns everywhere.


Wonderful entertainment.


Colourful display of lanterns and lighted umbrellas.

 
Perfect end of the visit with making a wish and throw our wishes onto the wishing tree!
