K.Trengganu China Town 2010

As per Mamarazzi's earlier post, there seems to be some sort of contest going on at K.T Chinatown this year. Nearly every shops were busy putting up decorations. Let comes some of the nice and not so nice photos.

The big Pintu Gerbang greeting all visitors.

The Chinese Temple in the middle of the Chinatown. This year the temple was also extensively decorated. Next to the temple there was a portable stage. Seems that there will be shows during Chinese New Year.

Everywhere there was red red and more red.

Some decorations are simple.

While some are complicated

Everywhere people are busy decorating. Some with impressive disco lights and sound system.

While some are with ladies "attached" as models.

So many shops and restaurants were decorated extensively. I wonder how the Judges going to choose.

Wah lau like the gate to the Forbidden City pulak.

Many people walking around and snapping photos.

Car and more cars coming by the minute. Too bad we didn't go to Chinatown on the day of the competition. Thus, I can't tell you which shop won.


  1. Hi Small Kuching, Holy Smoke! Is that Trengganu town? Can't imagine KT like that.
    My last trip there was in 1985. Used to visit KT almost every 2 weeks for many years, always staying at Tanjong Jara or at the Primula hotel.
    As well going fishing of Marang, and to Pulau Kapas, before it became a resort.

    Love your well taken photos.
    Really colourful....and really nice to see these as we don't have them here. Brings back memories too.
    Have a great Tiger year, Lee.

  2. wow, competition for the best decorated!

  3. wah.. so nice.. didnt know KT got chinatown too!

  4. Lee,

    Yup...that is what the town looks like now. Remember the clock tower at the Pasar Payang? gone already.

    They are also doing some reclaimation of land behind the pasar and at Pantai Batu Buruk.

    Primula is still standing. A few hotels have made its appearance. There is even a hypermarket called Giant there and there are rumours that maybe there will be a Tesco Hypermarket too.

    May you have a Roaring year too,Lee

  5. Wenn

    A lot of the old shops have and are moving to new premises. Duno why they are going to demolish this historical place. Maybe that's why you saw many shops not open. The eviction were being done by stages...haiz...

  18. Wow...the decor all very nice lor...wonder who win the best decor in town :)
