With the downturn and endless recession this year seems not as extravagant as previous years. Nevertheless, in Penang and other Chinese-dominant cities in Malaysia, Chinese New Year is something you cannot miss - the heat, the endless feasting and ang pau collecting. Of course I've given up relying ang pau money as a prime source of income long ago - with the recent downturn projection is even going to be worse.
Scene of Hong Kong Int'l Airport - airports just look the same worldwide, even in Hong Kong - no hint of red at all for Chinese New Year.
Back home in Penang - the melting heat.
