CNY & Thaipusam Open House @ Puncak Setiawangsa

Chinese New Year Open House together with Thaipusam celebration on the 7 February 2012.
The weather was perfect, the response was excellent and the food was magnificent.
Before the Open House we need to hang our fire crackers high up the trees and we engaged professional archers to help us.
Shaharudin's boys were good with their bow & arrows.
Shaharudin Junior showing how it is done.
Thank you Goh Teng Sir for helping us with these fire crackers.
The fire crackers were loud and noisy which was necessary for the occasion.
While the preparation was underway, I requested a "wake-up" patrol round the housing reminding the residents to come out from their houses. What a way to go with the tong tong chiang....and thanks again to Shaharudin for using his pick-up.
The Lion Dance Troupe from Sri Rampai preparing the stilts for their performance.
Everything was ready and awaiting for the VIP to arrive.
And drums & cymbals begin to arouse the atmosphere with their loud noise.
Be seated and the Lion Dance will be performing shortly.
Dato' & Datin Zulhasnan were given special attention by the beautiful lion.
I was happy that the Lion Dance performance went on well as it was my department on this CNY Open House day.
 The white lion dancing on the stilts as the drum noise continued to provide the loud rhythm.

Everyone enjoyed the excitement of the noise and the performance of the lions.
Char Koay Teow was favourite among all the food either you have it wet or dry.
Another favourite was the roast lamb.
There were enough roast lamb for everyone.

It's Malaysian favourite time .... food, food & food, the spread was good and sufficient.
Let's eat and be merry.

The feeling of 1 Malaysia was immense, there were cultural dances on stage with all the various music played on air. It was such a great experience and excitement for the people of Setiawangsa.

It's Ang Pow time, whether you are big or small as long as you are single you are eligible to collect yours....
Prizes for the best dressed kids.
