Kuala Lumpur 08-02-2016
When I arrived in Kuala Lumpur the Chinese new year started. So fireworks in the evening. But nothing like in Amsterdam. In Kuala Lumpur you see many religions, Hindu, Christians, Chinese, Islamic and probably a few more. On many of the people you can see what there religion is. Chinese is obvious, Hindu too, and Moslems as well, Christians do not wear the signs of there religion.. But today was the last day of the festivities from the start of the Chinese New Year. ( Year of the Monkey ).
So a good reason to go to the Thean Hou Temple, and see how the Chinese celebrate. They come out by the thousands by car, busses and on foot. They come dressed in red mostly. Kuala Lumpur has a great number of Chinese living there. They came already by the early days of the silk road. Thean Hou is the Heavenly Mother.
