With Chinese New Year coming later this week, we figured a panorama taken from inside Khoo Kongsi Temple, one of the grandest Chinese clan temples in Penang (and all of Malaysia for that matter), would be a good way to kick off the new year.
“Chinese temples in Malaysia?” you ask. Yes, Malaysia sports a fascinating history of immigration, including its ethnic Chinese population, whose numbers are second only to that of the country’s ethnic native Malays.
So with this image and nugget of trivia, we wish you a very happy year of the rabbit, a sign known for peace and harmony. Heaven knows we could all use a little more of this in the world…and our lives.
