Chinese New Year in Malaysia
Chinese New Year or the Spring Festival is celebrated in Malaysia by the Chinese community.
It is celebrated in the first month of the Chinese Calendar. On the Chinese New Year's Eve, the Chinese families gather all together for the family dinner. First day of the celebration is dedicated to family, with the third day onwards visiting friends.
Living near the Chinese community in Malaysia, you will notice red color Chinese decoration considered auspicious for the New Year. The red color symbolize good luck and wealth the entire year.
When i heard about Chinese New year i can't help but to think of the sounds of the Red firecrackers going off during the Chinese New Year in Malaysia....the red firecrackers are extremely noisy and does not go unnoticed.
Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Chai!

This is coming from myself, whom is permanently residing in the country, not just another tourist who came and go to tell the experience, the culture, the food and everything about Malaysia.
Having that in mind, this blog is presented to you.
