Land Reclamation at Gurney Drive, Penang   Leave a comment


Land Reclamation at Gurney Drive, Penang

Land reclamation, usually known as reclamation, and also known as land fill (not to be confused with a landfill), is the process of creating new land from oceansriverbeds, or lake beds. The land reclaimed is known as reclamation ground or land fill.

In a number of other jurisdictions, including parts of the United States,[1] the term “reclamation” can refer to returning disturbed lands to an improved state. In Alberta, Canada, for example, reclamation is defined by the provincial government as “The process of reconverting disturbed land to its former or other productive uses.”[2] In Oceania it is frequently referred to as land rehabilitation.

Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival (simplified Chinese春节traditional Chinese春節pinyinChūn Jié) in modern China, and one of the Lunar New Years in Asia, is an important Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar. Celebrations traditionally run from the evening preceding the first day, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first calendar month. The first day of the New Year falls on the new moon between the 21st of January and 20th of February. In 2018, the first day of the Lunar New Year was on Friday, 16 February, initiating the year of the Dog.

It is one of the world’s most prominent and celebrated festivals, with the largest annual mass human migration in the world. It is a major holiday in Greater China and has had strong influence on the lunar new year celebrations of its geographic neighbours, including Singapore, IndonesiaMalaysiaKoreaThailandVietnamCambodiaMauritiusAustralia, and the Philippines.

The New Year festival is centuries old and associated with several myths and customs. Traditionally, the festival was a time to honour deities as well as ancestors.[8] Within China, regional customs and traditions concerning the celebration of the Lunar New Year vary widely. Often, the evening preceding Lunar New Year’s Day is an occasion for Chinese families to gather for the annual reunion dinner. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly clean the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for incoming good luck. Windows and doors are decorated with red colour paper-cuts and couplets with popular themes of “good fortune” or “happiness”, “wealth”, and “longevity”. Other activities include lighting firecrackers and giving money in red paper envelopes. In about one third of the Mainland population, or 500 million Northerners, dumplings (especially those of vegetarian fillings) feature prominently in the meals celebrating the festival.

Loy Krathong Festival at Wat Chaiya Mangalaram Thai Buddhist Temple   Leave a comment



Loy Krathong Festival last night – Sunday, 17 November 2013
Venue: Wat Chaiya Mangalaram Thai Buddhist Temple
Time: 7.00pm- 10.00pm — at Wat Chaiyamangalaram Thai Buddhist Temple

Words of advice
Preparations for Loy Krathong tonight for Photographers.
1. Come in shorts or bring spare shorts if you come in pants,
2. Put handphone and wallet in a plastic bag.
3. Wear sandals or slippers as we are entering the sea to take the shots.
Why? I was too engrossed in shooting I short-circuited my handphone last year when I entered the sea to shoot the floating krathongs.
