Chinese New Year Cultural & Heritage Celebration – outside Khoo Kongsi

As I was leaving Khoo Kongsi, I saw beautiful stalls from various hotels along Lebuh Cannon, just outside Khoo Kongsi.  Then I went over to Lim Kongsi to have a look around.  As I said I was early and the people involved were still setting up their stalls, but I did manage to get some nice photos to share with you.
