Chinese New Year in Kuala Lumpur 2014

Date: Early January 2014

Whoa! Long time no blog! I’ve seemed to have dropped out of  the blogosphere the past couple of weeks, but rest assured, there’s certainly no horsing around for me when I was in KL last, having accomplished what I had set out to do  – and willingly falling ‘victim’ to the ample carbohydrates-fueled yummies there!  😭

So let me present you in pictures (via my trusty iPhone 5s), how KL dressed up to herald the upcoming Chinese New Year on January 31st! 

First up, right in front of my proverbial doorsteps, the Pavilion Mall – as usual the best decorated mall in the whole of KL.  Lanterns, lanterns and MORE big garishly red Chinese lanterns in front of the Pavilion Mall – totally OTT!  HOT!

The theme, as one can easily guess is HORSES GALORE!

Of course, more horses in the the hotel lobby.

A stallion galloping throughout the woods of cherry-blossoms in Suria KLCC.  For those single dudes and dudettes, the first thing you should do, when you wake up on CNY morning is to run around the cherry blossom trees a few times.  A centuries-old tradition to boost your luck in finding your Mr or Ms Right!  (Personal opinion, it doesn’t work – been doing it for AGES!  But still, am going to run a few laps this year. 😵 😵 😵)

My first Lion Dance show of the year, performed by a bunch of school kids at Suria KLCC.  Pretty good, despite me waiting a good 40minutes for the short-lived 15minutes show to start… 😳
