Chinatown

These pics were taken at Petaling Street aka Malaysia's Chinatown. With the Chinese Lunar Year just several weeks away, the place comes alive with shoppers haggling for Chinese New Year goodies at the myriad stalls and shops that line the street.
Shops selling Chinese New Year decorations
The pineapple is a popular traditional feng shui symbol of wealth
Chinese New Year Cookies
Asian-style Pork Jerky - a popular Chinese New Year gift
Waxed Duck - A Chinese New Year Staple. Not for me though!
Pussy Willows -  A favourite flower for the Chinese New Year. The fluffy white blossoms of the pussy willow resemble silk, and they soon give forth young shoots the color of green jade. The Chinese enjoy such signs of growth, which represent the coming of prosperity
