Gong xi fa cai!

Gong xi fa cai!  Welcome, year of the fire monkey!

It is Chinese New Year and all my Chinese colleagues in Malaysia have headed back to their family homes to spend this precious time with their families. 

Based on their Face Book postings, they spent the weekend spring cleaning their houses as a clean home means sweeping away any misfortunes to make room for a fresh, ordered start to the New Year. Then on Monday, as the first day of the New Year, they come together as a family, travelling home to relatives, for a reunion dinner – the feast sees out the old year and celebrates togetherness.

I flew back to Australia to spend time with my family but before I did I walked around the malls in Kuala Lumpur CBD to take some snap shots of the various decorations of Red Lanterns and Monkeys for Chinese New Year – as it is the year of the Fire Monkey.
