Jalan Raja Uda, Butterworth - CNY 2011

It's been few months I never came back to my hometown, this time I got the chance to come back and visit my family members for the Chinese Lunar New Year 2011.

I was driving all the way from Kuala Lumpur to Butterworth, and the moment I reached Jalan Raja Uda, I was so surprised to see along the street is full with lanterns! This street is approximately 3.4 km long.

10 years ago, this street was nothing to shout about, the road is narrow and surrounded by wooden houses. Now, this whole street become so happening with proper and well-planned shop houses, the road is much more widen and I can say it's the 'Food Heaven' street.

For so many years I never feel a place with the mood of Chinese Lunar New Year, this time finally I found the mood again, I believe these are the great effort by the locals and local government here. I really feel so warm to come back here.

I'm so proud to see this scene in my hometown, at least I can feel the traditional Chinese cultural still alive here.
