The year of the snake is here! Today is the first day of Chinese New Year and with the population of Penang, Malaysia being as high as it is, a huge celebration has been going on for days! Fireworks, burning incense and an overall party in the streets has been a daily occurrence. It has been an absolute pleasure to be a part of it all.
The above photo was taken at Kek Lok Si temple near Air Itam in Penang, where this light display will be going for a month. This was as close as we could get 2 days before the New Year so stay tuned for more pics in the coming month!
