Are You There?

Anyone remember the Gong Xi Bazaar which I had blogged about? I think, that is the place you can meet a lot of people. Just look at the photos...

Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze!!!

Dancing Queen, did I accidentally snap a photo of your hubby again? Hehe.

That's what Mirians like.

That's the festive feel; having everyone squeezing here and there in a market.

240 stalls in this annual bazaar.

With so many people in this bazaar, for sure, you can meet some of your friends. Even those whom you have not seen for ages.

God of Fortune.

Not only you can meet people in this bazaar, but you can also take this opportunity to snap as many photos as possible. Of course, not to forget, to buy groceries and some snack for Chinese New Year. :)

Dragon Dance.

Look at this big crowd!

Lion Dance and also Dragon Dance.

The great thing about this bazaar is, you get to watch all those lion and dragon dance for free! For your interest, if you want to watch this kind of performance, you normally need to give "angpao" (red packet) to the lion dance troop. RM 5 or RM 10? Nahh! You must give them at least RM500 for this kind of performance. ;)

For those overseas, you come to the right place. I have two short video clips of lion and dragon dance for your pleasure. :)





Now, tell me Kok's blog is interesting! Or else, no more videos next time! Hahaha! :P
