It was not Chinese New year without lion dance. Lion dance is a hired performance done with or without the rising platform. However, the lion dance is must to be performed with loud instruments. One will see the lion dance performers making an art out of mandarin orange or carrying a 4-words scroll to gift to the one who funded the performance.


Well known director Stephen Chow's the "mermaid" is one of the selected few films to debut during the highly coveted first week of the Chinese New Year . The film recorded as highest opening ticket sales in a week in many countries including Malaysia.

There is no way throughout the Chinese New Year week wearing the traditional red Chinese costume. I suppose new clothes mean ward off previous year bad luck. It was really fun though !


There is no compulsory on this point. Everyone went to do some look adjustment in order to wow the crowd of relative. However, dying hair is not very accepted by any parents thinking as it would probably give a bad impression.

Cocktail tables full of booze. Singing and dancing with band and DJ. A night before Chinese new year eve 2016 ! The lightning effect is quite cool. It was a little bit intense knowing that the entrance fee was FREE



Crowded temple with overwhelming devotees performing burnt offerings.

Everyone love gambling during this time. Only on this festival occasion, The full of dust poker cards and discolored mahjong were taken out from store shelves.

Golden Egg Crunch and Golden Burger delighting you on Chinese New Year 2015

KFC Malaysia Golden burger

It is amusing to know there are some new menu eating at KFC. Could not resist any of them either the golden burger or golden egg crunch. I have ordered both and it is a great and satisfying experience.

Golden Egg Crunch does not taste like normal Kentucky fried chicken. Sjora's juice makes your meal even tastier ever.

A new menu always push away the last great menu brought by KFC. I sincerely hope that one day KFC Malaysia would bring back the old menu. I must say the high-quality fried prawn one should not take it lightly because it taste like so fresh and delicious.

The freshness of the prawn meat is still preserved under high temperature deep-fried I guess they put some secret ingredients deep-fried those golden crunchy prawn. I never like to eat prawn but when I do, I go to KFC.
