Your Festival stories,
Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Thaipusam and others
For many people world wide the new year does not start at January 1 but on the first day of the lunar calendar of the year. That day is every year different but it usually falls in late January or early February.
What do you do with Chinese New Year? Were you in Malaysia during the Thaipusam? Did you celebrate Hari Raya with your Malay friends? In the few years in Malaysia I have seen many activities, but I am curious about your experiences.

I remember my first Chinese New Year. It was in Beijing China. What knocked me out was that everything on New Years Eve was closed, even getting a meal was hard! But at 12 midnight the staff knocked on my door, wishing me a happy new year with 2 bottles of beer and a bowl of noodles!
