CNY Flashback: LIghts up!

The last day of the Chinese New Year celebrations is on the fifteenth day. It is said that in China it is celebrated as Yuan Xiao Festival/Yuánxiāojié (元宵节) or Shang Yuan Festival/Shàngyuánjié (上元节) or Lantern Festival. In Malaysia and Singapore, it is a sort of Valentine's Day: Single women would write their contact number on mandarin oranges and throw them into a river or a lake so that they could be picked up by single men. This year, I heard there was such activities in the Esplanade in Penang. While I was there in Penang during Chap Goh Meh or the fifteenth night, I had however visited the Kek Lok Si temple instead. Each year, for the whole fifteen days of the Chinese New Year, the temple would be lit up at night to add to the festive atmosphere...

Watch Kek Lok Si lit up...
