Straits Quay, Tanjung Tokong, Penang

I love checking out decorations at Shopping Complexes during festive seasons.  Of course, one of my favourite places is Straits Quay and I find their decoration very tasteful and elegant. Walking into the foyer, one cannot miss the auspicious colour of “red” for luck.

Straits Quay has lined up many interesting activities for Chinese New Year, but there was one special event which I was lucky to chance upon and I am going to share it with you.

Such is the tapestry of life in Penang.  That is why I love my beautiful island and will not trade it for anywhere in the world.  A True Penangite, that is me.

Happy New Year from Penang.
