A Chinese New Year without a Lion Dance 农历新年没有醒狮 ...


It is hard to imagine a Chinese New Year without
a Lion dance ...

大年初
14th day of Chinese New Year 2011
















Almost every year except this year that I have
not witnessed a lion dance performance ...

It's the sound of the drums or the lion dance portion
when the lion is "playing" with the fire-crackers
and performing the acrobat acts that lights-up
the Chinese New Year ...

It's already the 13th day of the Chinese New Year,
and I have yet to witness a lion dance anywhere ...

Très belle série!
Il est vrai que la "lion dance" est très colorée, tout ceci me rappelle mon séjour à KL, il y a un certain temps déjà...
Thanks for sharing !

我没有像往常一样被视为今年无论是很多,但已经看到了一些,并会享受的最后一个周末。去年我很幸运,在观音庙是看狮子会进入睡眠状态的一年!幸运新的一年给你!

Beautiful shots as always!!!
