[Anecdotes from our Chinese New Year holiday in Malaysia]
This year’s trip back to Malaysia had been planned years ahead. Chinese New Year this year happens to fall in January just at the tail end of the summer school holidays in Australia. We had booked our plane tickets way ahead so we could look forward to enjoying the big festivities back in Malaysia for the first time in several years.
We made sure that the kids got a first hand taste of Chinese New Year in Malaysia.
Colourful lion dances

Loads and loads of ang pow
A real classic festive Chinese New Year every Chinese kid must experience at least once in their lifetime.
